dc.description.abstract Concrete is the widely used construction material worldwide. Therefore, for structural safety as well as to provide economic design, it is essential to understand well, its performance. Whilst in most developed countries extensive research has been done to characterise concrete, little is known about the performance of concrete in Botswana. This paper reviews previous work carried out in other countries to assess performance of their concrete. Focus is on influence of aggregate type. It is shown from the review that there is great need to study influence of aggregate on performance of concrete in Botswana, particularly comprehensive strength. A brief description of the needed research is outlined. en_US
