compressive strength test of concrete -step by step procedure as per Indian standard code Apparatus compressive testing machine should be reliable, of sufficient capacity and able to apply the load at approx 140 kg/ sqcm per minute. The permitted error should be limited to maximum +/- 2 % of maximum load. Age at test compressive […]
Concrete form work stripping time In general stripping of form work should not be done unless otherwise concrete has achieve strength equal to double the stress it may imposed while stripping the form work. Before stripping of form work, compressive strength of concrete is to be checked. If desire compressive strength of concrete is not […]
What is fiber reinforced concrete and its types Plain cement concrete has very limited ductility, resistance to cracking and low tensile strength. Plain cement concrete may develop micro cracks even before load is applied. If uniformly distributed and closed spaced fibbers introduced in plain cement
15 must have construction site laboratory equipments for construction project Quality consciousness is important aspect of construction management, especially when it comes to material. Every material received at site need to be tested for quality checks as per quality control plan. Now a days quality control testing is no longer as
