Have you ever wondered why there are two types of bars used in slab reinforcement, namely Main bar and distribution bar? We have discussed the difference between one…

We could say that the slab is the end product of building construction. In the whole building area, the slab is the only structural element we often use…

At the site, the wall will be chased for embedding electrical and plumbing conduits. Sometimes we alter the conduit, pipeline path which makes the whole wall rough and…

We know there are two concrete strength testing methods, such as destructive test method and Non-destructive method. We use both methods to check the compressive strength and characteristic…

We often get confused about using these terms – Development Length, Anchorage Length, and Lap Length. What is the development length? The steel reinforcement that is prolonged into…

Every time we calculate the concrete or cement mortar calculation, We use 1.54 constant to get a dry volume of ingredients. But why exactly 1.54 why not 1.75?…

We all knew the concrete is strong in compression and weak against tensile force. The steel reinforcement has been used to enhance the concrete tensile strength. The steel…

The strength and durability of the structure depend on the properties of cement. The fineness of the cement test is conducted to find whether the cement has been…

What is Prestressed Concrete? Prestressed concrete (PSC) is the composite of concrete and prestressed high tensile tendons. In PSC, the internal stress has been introduced under controlled circumstances…

We have discussed concrete calculations in an earlier post. If you refer to the post, we don’t exclude the steel quantity. Why? Based on the thumb rule of…
