WC Branch Cube Crushing Competition – 2018


Branch Chairman, Mfundo Taliwe and Dr Riaan Combrinck, PhD MScEng BEng, Senior Lecturer at Stellenbosch University welcomed everyone to the W. Cape Cube Crushing Competition held recently at the University of Cape Town. This year’s competition was kindly sponsored by PPC, who generously sponsored the prize money which was divided equally between the undergraduate and the post-graduate categories. This year the competition attracted a total of 27 entries.

The winning entry in each category (based on the strength of a single 100 mm cube specimen) was calculated as the closest to a target strength of 14.8 MPa of the '24-hour drip-dried' cube specimen.


The prizes were split as follows:
