There are more and more technology updates, and innovations are coming into existence to increase the workability and durability of concrete. The prestressed concrete is one of the specialized concrete, sustainable against heavy load and gives cracks free pleasant surface. What is meant by Prestressed Concrete? High tensile stress-induced artificially…

Cement acts as a binding agent in concrete, which blends with other materials quickly and makes the concrete as a strong homogeneous element. The durability of the concrete depends on the properties of cement. The setting time of cement is one of the essential properties of cement. What is meant…

The aggregates used in different construction works such as roads, buildings, pavement etc. So many different kinds of tests are applied on coarse aggregates such as the impact values test, crushing value test, specific gravity test, and sieve analysis test to know its strength. What is an abrasion test? The…

Concrete quantity calculation is easy if it is for a rectangular or square shape. When it is complex geometric shapes, then it seems like a daunting task. Every Complex Geometric shape can be disintegrated into simple shapes. Here in the staircase concrete calculation, we are going to dismantle the staircase…

Probably D2/162 is the first formula we ever learn in the construction industry. We know it is used to calculate the weight of steel bars. Also, know the importance of estimation in the Bar Bending Schedule. Here we are going to discuss the derivation of this formula. Derivation of D2/162 …

Calculating the tiles requirement for a building seems like a simple task. There are some precautions to be taken, or else you may end up facing the below challenges. You may end up ordering twice because of your estimation You may end up with colour differences on the required tiles…
