The compressive strength of sandcrete blocks is affected by the mix proportion, quality of material used in making them, size, shape, and the mode of manufacture (i.e. hand or machine mould). Physical conditions such as method and days of curing, duration of time, temperature etc will also contribute to the strength of the block (Dhir, 1980).
