Requirements of Fresh Concrete

Fresh Concrete or Plastic Concrete is a Freshly mixed material which can be molded to any shape. The performance requirements of hardened concrete are more or less well-defined shape with respect to the shape, finish, strength, durability, shrinkage and the Creep. To achieve these objectives economically, the fresh concrete should satisfy a number of requirements from the mixing stage till it is transported, placed in the formwork and compacted.

Concrete Sealers- Buying Tips for Concrete Sealers

What are Concrete Sealers??
The concrete sealers are a special mixture that is applied to the concrete surface in order to protect from surface damage, corrosion and staining problems. These undesirable effects would result in the  formation of pores that would result in: Increase in porosity of the concrete surfaceWater penetration-causing freezing and thawingCrack FormationDecrease in durability of the concrete surfaceSubsurface failure due to water penetration, causing settlement

Bogue Compounds- Hydration Reactions

Chemical Composition of Cement The basic chemical composition of cement is given in table 1. For convenience, they are given short forms as shown in the table. The significance of each compound is discussed in the following sections. These compounds are together called as bogue compounds.

Stainless Steel Reinforcement in Construction - Designation And Standars

Stainless steel the name given to a group of corrosion-resistant steel alloys which contain a minimum of 10.5% chromium.When we refer "stainless steel" it won't simply refer to a single material type. But this will belong to a group of corrosion resistant highly alloyed steel. This type is in contrast to the unalloyed steel which won't show any kind of corrosion and rust forming that is noticeable in a normal environmental condition. 

Principle of Statics in Structural Analysis | Conditions of Static Equilibrium |Sign Convention

"Statics is the study of structures that are under equilibrium conditions. Equilibrium of the structure means - all the forces acting on the structure must balance and the net torque must be equal to zero".

Difference Between Carbon Steel (Mild Steel) And Stainless Steel

Understanding the main difference between the carbon steel and stainless steel is very essential when it comes to making a decision on which steel for a specified construction project. Choice in the grade of steel will come only after the choice between the carbon and stainless steel. In order to facilitate this choice, we will discuss the key difference between carbon steel and stainless based on different properties.

Light Weight, Heavy Weight & Normal Weight Aggregates - Properties & Applications

Based on the bulk specific gravity of the aggregates, the classification is made as Light Weight AggregatesNormal Weight AggregatesHeavy Weight Aggregates These aggregates have a major role in the manufacture of concrete with varied properties. The field application of these aggregates will hence vary based on the properties of the aggregates showed in the concrete made.
