Ready Mix Concrete Definition Types Advantages

Ready mix concrete as the name suggest is the concrete that is already mixed in suitable proportions before arrival at site either on agitating trucks or dumpers as per the requirement of slump or material. Basically the ready-mix concrete is mixture of binding agent and filler material. Filler material is crushed…continue reading →

Transparent or Translucent Concrete

Have you ever seen a façade or cladding giving look of a rock-hard material but still gives you a see-through and translucent look inside the building? . The widest used construction material, which is sustainable and reliable as well, is getting a makeover by engineers of modern era.Transparent or Translucent Concrete \"it’s…continue reading →

Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete

Fiberglass is basically a matrix in which very fine fibers of glass exists. Fiberglass material is usually used for making of boats or for temporary sheds like sometimes on the roof tarus. That is the reason where ever the word fiber glass is touched ones always thinks of it as…continue reading →

Concrete Vibration, Concrete Vibrators and its types

Quality of concrete depends on many factors among which the most vulnerable and defenseless is workmanship. During pouring the concrete and execution of work cautious supervision is imperative. The supervisor has to look for many things including the finishing of concrete, pouring quantity, at-site testing, unremitting and continual supply of…continue reading →

Top 10 Concrete Structures of the World

1 | Pantheon, Romepossibly by Apollodorus of Damascus, c126 ADThe ancient Romans didn’t have reinforced concrete (that is, strengthened with steel) but they had concrete, and used it to such heart-stopping effect on the Pantheon that no one has really been able to match it since. The true moment of…continue reading →

Download Structural Dynamics theory and Computation PDF

The analysis and design of structures to resist the effect produced by time dependent forces or motions requires conceptual idealizations and simplifying assumptions through which the physical system is represented by an idealized system known as the analytical or mathematical model. These idealizations or simplifying assumptions may be classified in…continue reading →

Concept of Reinforced Earth

Reinforcement in the form of steel or synthetic strips called geo-strips are placed within an embankment, containing soil in various layers compacted mechanically; the granular material of embankment is linked by means of friction. The embankment becomes a self supporting structure, such a structure is called reinforced earth structure.Earth Reinforced…continue reading →

What is slab?

Structural Concrete Slabs are constructed to provide flat surfaces, usually horizontal, in building floors, roofs, bridges, and other types of structures. The slab may be supported by walls, by reinforced concrete beams usually cast monolithically with the slab, by structural steel beams, by columns, or by the ground. The depth…continue reading →

Download Design of Reinforced Concrete by Jack C. McCormac and James K. Nelson

Reinforced Concrete Structures are widely being constructed throughout the world and because of availability of raw materials required to design a mix, they lead other building materials like wood, stones etc. Mostly the code and guidelines used to design reinforced concrete structures is that of American Concrete Institute (ACI). In…continue reading →
