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…

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…

You may have seen water dripping under the concrete surface (roof) because of the concrete surface’s tiny pore presence. Concrete must be impermeable, which should prevent water penetration. At times it loses the impermeable capacity due to the improper quality of materials and water-cement ratio. Effects of Water Seepage Water…

Many innovations are evolving in the construction industry to enhance the strength and durability of the structure.  Concrete, A major construction material that is strong in compression and weak in tensile load. So the steel reinforcement has been embedded to stabilize the concrete against the tensile force.  Though the reinforced…

Different types of concrete blocks are used in various construction works. We know the solid blocks, AAC blocks, hollow blocks are used in the construction of walls, but the paver blocks are mainly used in road construction.  We are all aware that the roads are formed by either bitumen or…

The concrete gives excellent strength and enough durability for the structure. We also know the usage of steel in concrete. There is no doubt!… But why do we need Prestressed Concrete? You may see the crack formation under the concrete element after completion of the structure. It is happening due…

The concrete that made by mixing different aggregate materials at specific ratios has different chemical particles. Various properties of concrete make it very strong and durable.  The quality of material, improper workmanship indirectly affects these properties and reduces the lifespan of the concrete. The concrete also loses its strength 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 strength of concrete. But both test methods can be applied to concrete cubes only after 28 days because the concrete requires proper…

The red bricks are the commonly used material in building construction. The strength and durability of red bricks are so good, but those bricks are manufactured from natural resources (Soil), and it is very harmful to the environment. At present, the M sand is the alternative construction material for river…
