Modern reinforced concrete can contain varied reinforcing materials made of steel, polymers or alternate composite material in conjunction with rebar or not. Reinforced concrete may also be permanently stressed (concrete in compression, reinforcement in tension), so as to improve the behaviour of the final structure under working loads. Below are......

I previously discussed How to Calculate the Total Bags of Cement and Tones of Sand for a Particular Volume of Concrete, today, I will be explaining How to Calculate The Total Tons of Granite for a Volume of Concrete. As an Engineer, Quantity Surveyor and Site Manager on Construction Site, you must know......

Aggregates are one of the most important constituents of the concrete which give body to the concrete and also reduce shrinkage. Aggregates occupy 60 to 80 % of total volume of concrete. So, we can say that one should know definitely about the aggregates in depth to study more about......

Waterbars or Waterstops are flexible physical plastic which help in preventing Leakages in Concrete Joints because most concrete joints are liable to Seepage. Concrete Joints exist mostly in basements, Water retaining structures like Water tanks, Swimming pools, structural foundations & other below ground level constructions like Sewage Treatment Plant STP.......

Concrete Admixture is any Material added to Concrete other than Sand, Cement, Aggregate & Water to enhance the properties of concrete for applications in concrete works. Concrete admixtures can improve concrete workability, quality, manageability, acceleration or retardation of setting time among other properties that could be altered to get specific results.......
