Different between pre tensioning and post tensioning concrete Structure

pre tensioning and post tensioning

Different between pre-tensioning and post-tensioning members These methods are used under the pre-stressing process which has few edges over the orthodox non-stressed structures like greater span to depth ratio, higher moment, and shear capacity. These methods are generally adopted in Continue reading Different between pre tensioning and post tensioning concrete Structure

Compaction factor formula of Concrete- Procedure for Test with Calculation

Compaction factor test

The strength of the concrete doesn’t only depend upon the grade of concrete i.e. actual mix ratio of the components but also the application of fresh concrete, its workability, procedures of preparation, and its compaction during its fresh form. The Continue reading Compaction factor formula of Concrete- Procedure for Test with Calculation

How to remove paint from concrete floor Safely? Different Procedure

concrete floor

Concrete surfaces contain numerous minute pores after hardening. The pores depend upon the application of vibrator, surface compaction, and also the surface texture of firm work. So, when paints are applied to the concrete surface the pores absorb the paint Continue reading How to remove paint from concrete floor Safely? Different Procedure
