Post Tensioned Concrete Slab

Post Tensioned Concrete Slab

It is the process of Post Tensioned Concrete slab after it has been poured and cured by means of a compressive force. High-strength steel tendons are used to form a network within the concrete that is then anchored to the foundation. The resulting post-tensioned slab provides structural rigidity at relatively low costs compared with most … Read more

Compacting factor Apparatus Test

compacting-factor-apparatus

Compacting factor test is a more precise and more accurate test for determining the workability of concrete. This is test is widely used in the construction fields and laboratories. The ratio of the weight of partially compacted concrete to the fully compacted concrete is called compacting factor also called a compaction factor. The maximum value … Read more

Sieve Analysis of Coarse Aggregates

Scope The scope of sieve analysis is to get or provide information about the particles size distribution of coarse aggregates. Coarse Aggregates Coarse aggregates are those aggregates that are retained on a 4.75mm sieve when they are sieved through 4.75mm. Standard ASTM C136-05 Significance The process of dividing aggregates in the fraction of the same … Read more

Vee-Bee test: Determining Workability of concrete by VEE BE Consistometer

Workability of concrete, VEE BE Consistometer, VEE BE test vs slump, VEE BE test relation with slump values, VEE BE test relation with compacting factor

Related Theory The primary objective of the Vee-Bee test is to determine in situ or in lab workability of the freshly mixedConcrete. The Vee-Bee test provides necessary information related to the mobility and compaction ability aspects of freshly mixed concrete having definite water to cement ratio. During Vee Bee Test the relative effort is measured … Read more
