Description The study aim was to make comparison between self-curing and traditional concrete qualities in terms of hardiness and water absorption. The study was experimental in nature and made use of material including Portland Pozzolana cement, fine aggregate, and angular coarse aggregate. The three grades of concrete were used in the experiment including M10, M20, and M30 based on cube and cylinder format. The tests involved in the study included non-destructive test, compression and split tensile strength test, and water absorption test. The findings show that overall, self-curing concrete shows better performance compare to the sprinkler or fully cured concrete. Thus, the study makes recommendation that traditional concrete may be replaced with the self-curing concrete.
