Effect of Geopathic Stress on Concrete Blocks

Shruti S. Ambekar | Sudhir L. Bhilare

Abstract: This paper deals with the experimental study of Effect of Geopathic Stress on Concrete Blocks. Geopathic Stress can be detected by various dowsing techniques and its intensity could be measured by an instrument called NAAV meter. Geopathic Stress is related to underground flowing water emitting electromagnetic radiations which are harmful for human beings residing in that stress zone and might be for structures also, which is prime part of our investigation under paper title EFFECT OF GEOPATHIC STRESS ON CONCRETE BLOCKS. It has been found that Geopathic Stress affects the properties of soil like moisture content, specific gravity, plastic limit, liquid limit and density. We have casted concrete blocks of M20, M25 and M30 grade and tested for strength for 7, 14 and 28 days. We have found that concrete blocks casted in Geopathic Stress Zone gives less strength as compared to Non-Geopathic Stress Zone.
