Scaffolding

Scaffolding structures that need to be designed

Scaffolding There is a limit to the safe working height at which a worker can access the building work from ground level. Therefore some form of temporary support is required to provide a safe and convenient working surface. This is known as scaffold or scaffolding. Scaffolding is used on new-build projects and for work to existing structures, including … Read more Scaffolding

Sub Surface Irrigation

Introduction Sub Surface Irrigation In sub surface Irrigation , effluent is delivered directly to the infiltrative surface of the soil using specially manufactured polyethylene tubing with built-in turbulent flow emitters. Subsurface irrigation is a highly-efficient watering technique. It reduces outdoor water use by 30 to 40 percent. Design of Sub-surface Irrigation It consist a masonry chamber (Distribution box) where … Read more Sub Surface Irrigation | Subsurface Irrigation Working | Advantages

Shotcrete – Concrete Repairing Techniques

Shotcrete in Concrete Repair Shotcrete is defined as “mortar or concrete pneumatically projected at high speed onto a surface” (American Concrete Institute, 1990). There are two basic types of shotcrete—dry mix and wet mix. In dry mix shotcrete, the dry cement, sand, and coarse aggregate, if used, are premixed with only sufficient water to reduce dusting. This mixture is … Read more Shotcrete – Concrete Repairing Techniques

Curing of Concrete and General Methods of Curing

Curing the concrete roof slab

Curing of Concrete and General Methods of Curing Concrete that has been specified, batched, mixed, placed, and finished “letter-perfect” can still be a failure if improperly or inadequately cured. Curing is usually the last step in a concrete project and, unfortunately, is often neglected even by professionals. Curing has a major influence on the properties … Read more Curing of Concrete and General Methods of Curing
