Reinforcements in a Reinforced Concrete Beam | Shear Links | Reinforcement

Reinforcements in a Reinforced Concrete Beam In RCC beams, elements are designed to resist the loads that cause bending moment, shear forces and sometimes in some cases, it also causes torsion along their length. It’s a known fact that concrete is strong in compression and very weak in tension. The steel reinforcement present in the … Read more Reinforcements in a Reinforced Concrete Beam | Shear Links | Reinforcement

Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) & Portland Pozzolana Cement (PPC) | Differences

Ordinary Portland & Portland Pozzolana Cement Portland Pozzolana Cement – PPC Cement:  Unlike Ordinary Portland Cement, Portland Pozzolana cement (PPC) is manufactured by combination of pozzolanic materials. Pozzolana is an artificial or natural material which has silica in it in a reactive form. Along with pozzolanic materials in specific proportions, PPC also contains OPC clinker … Read more Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) & Portland Pozzolana Cement (PPC) | Differences

Field Tests for Cement | Check the Quality Cement at Site

Field test on cement

Field Tests for Cement Quality tests on cement at the construction site are performed to know the quality of the cement supplied, within a short amount of time. It is not possible to have laboratory tests done in the short period of time, hence in such times the basic field Tests for Cement are done … Read more Field Tests for Cement | Check the Quality Cement at Site

Effects of Corrosion in Reinforcement | Signs & Preventive Measures

Corrosion of RC structure

Effects of Corrosion in Reinforcement Corrosion in Reinforcement is a serious issue, it can affect the integrity and life of the structure. Concrete has mainly two protection mechanisms to protect the steel from corrosion. The first one is that it forms a physical barrier to avoid the steel come in contact with the external environment. … Read more Effects of Corrosion in Reinforcement | Signs & Preventive Measures

GROUND TREATMENT WITH LIME COLUMNS & CEMENT COLUMNS

Installation of lime columns

Lime Columns Method Lime columns method is a variation of deep soil mixing, in which unslaked quicklime is used instead of cement or mixed with cement. The lime columns are suitable at best for stabilization of deep soft clay deposits. A pozzolanic reaction takes place between the lime and the clay minerals resulting in substantial … Read more GROUND TREATMENT WITH LIME COLUMNS & CEMENT COLUMNS
