Different grades of cement- IS Codes, Compressive Strength, Uses

Different grades of cement

Hello, guys here I will discuss different grades of cement. It means the difference between 33 Grade, 43 Grade, and 53 Grade of cement. So let’s start. Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) has three grades that are 33 Grade, 43 Grade, Continue reading Different grades of cement- IS Codes, Compressive Strength, Uses

Compressive strength of cement -(Procedure and formula for Test)

Compressive strength

What is compressive strength of cement? Compressive strength of the cement is the property of cement which specifies how much load it can withstand when cement is made into a hardened mass mixing with standard sand and water. The process Continue reading Compressive strength of cement -(Procedure and formula for Test)
