Abstract

Recently, the use of high strength concrete is become increasingly popular in building construction. This is because concrete has a high strength to capture the load. However, a mixture of coarse aggregates is inaccessible and costly. Besides that, many researchers find the idea to overcome this problem by substituting another material to the concrete such a waste material especially wood and timber. The recycling of woodblock or wood Therefore, the study is to reduce the use of coarse aggregates and woodblock as a replacement of coarse aggregates. The woodblock obtain from the wood waste at the construction site and timber factory. This report shows the results of absorption and the compressive strength conducted on the normal strength concrete specimens 25 N/mm2 containing 0%, 3% and 6% of woodblock by coarse aggregates weight. The period of curing of the concrete at 7 and 28 days. From the results of the compressive strength test and water absorption test for the replacement of coarse aggregates shows the 6% was the best results to replace it.
