Summary, Conclusion and Recommendation

This chapter covers the summary of the study, the

conclusion of the study based on the statistical results
and experiments, and the recommendations for further

5.1 Summary
This study determined the effectiveness of Coconut
Sawdust as alternative aggregation in concrete mix use for

This study composed of one main variable which is Coconut

Sawdust as alternative used of aggregation. There were 3
Sample mix of coconut sawdust and each of them value
Coconut Sawdust Proportion 62%, 42.2%, and 55%. To test its
durability and permeability the researcher conducted
another sample of concrete which is sand based Aggregation

The area for experimentation assessment and Testing of this

study was conducted in Zone-5, Barangay Poblacion,
Manticao, Misamis Oriental. The material that have been
used for this study are Coconut Sawdust, Cement, Water and
Sand. The tools that have been used for this study are
Oven, Shovel, Bucket, Meter stick, and weigher. The
researcher have been collected the material in Kalangahan,
Lugait, Misamis Oriental for Coconut Sawdust and for
Cement, water, and sand it was collected in Zone-5,
Barangay Poblacion, Manticao, Misamis Oriental.
The researchers Mixed 3 Coconut Sawdust sample (62%, 42.2%,
55%) with water (18% each) and Cement (20%, 39.8%, 27%) and
1 sample of sand based aggregation (43.7%), Water (18%) and
cement (37.3%). Contain it a square wooden box for Shape
molding and curing for 7 days. After for 7 days the
researcher will test each of the 3 coconut sawdust samples
and compare it to sand based sample to identify which among
the three coconut sample best suited and closes percentage
to sand based mixture.

5.2 Conclusion
Through the results of the statistics and the data
gathered, the researchers found out that by using Coconut
Sawdust as alternative aggregation has made its remarkable
outcome it term is of Strength and durability (see Figure 1
,Chapter 4). By calculating the impact forced that each
sample conducted Coconut sawdust sample 2 has the highest
forced (17640 Newtons) needed to crush its physical form
compare to Sand based sample the forced need to crush its
form to dust is 12770 Newtons. For that, the researchers
concluded that Coconut Sawdust aggregation mixture is more
durable than Sand based aggregation mixture.

For Water absorption, the data the researchers have

gathered and found out that among the 3 Coconut Sawdust
Mixture samples, Coconut Sawdust sample 2 has the lower
permeability than Coconut Sawdust Sample 1 and Coconut
Sawdust Sample 3 and the closes Percentage to Sand mixture
sample (see figure 2, Chapter 4). Sand mixture has 0.181%
permeability compare to Coconut Sawdust mixture sample 2 it
has 0.428% permeability lower than other Coconut Sawdust
mixture sample. The lower permeability of a concrete, the
higher resistance to water penetration.

5.3 Recommendations

Throughout the experiments, the researchers had observed

and calculated the results.

Base from the following results and conclusions presented,

the following are recommendations for further/other


1. Use Universal Testing Machine (UTM) To Calculate

accurate a Concrete Compressive Strength.
2. Cure the concrete for 28 days to test to its full
potential capabilities.
3. Use not only strength test and water absorption test,
use other important test quality of a concrete as
4. Create more Concrete samples.
