Pile Foundation

Pile Foundation

Pile Foundation When the soil at or near the ground surface is unable in bear the load of a superstructure, deep foundations are required to transmit the load to deeper strata. The most common types of deep foundations are piles, piers, and caissons. A deep foundation is generally much more expensive than a shallow foundation. … Read more

Self Consolidating Concrete Mix Design

Self Consolidating Concrete

Self Consolidating Concrete Self Consolidating Concrete The flowability of a concrete mix is a complex interaction of the inter-particle friction in the aggregate phase, and the fluidity of the paste phase. The water-to-powder ratio and admixtures control the fluidity of the paste phase. If the aggregate particles have too much friction due to poor grading … Read more

Concrete Mix Design

Concrete Mix Design

Concrete Mix Design Concrete mix design is the method of optimally proportioning various constituents of concrete, such as cement, aggregates, water, and admixtures, in order to manufacture a concrete at a lower cost that will have specified properties of workability and homogeneity in the fresh state and strength and durability in the hardened state. Purpose of … Read more

Self Compacting Concrete

Self Compacting Concrete

Self Compacting Concrete (SCC) is a concrete that is capable to compact under its own load. Also in past, making concrete structures without compaction and vibration has also been done. For examples, placing of concrete under water is done without vibration. Mass concrete and shaft concrete can be well placed without compaction. But the examples … Read more
