Pervious Concrete- All Factors Affecting, Limitations and Methodology Explained

Pervious concrete pavements (PCP) are advancement of innovative materials that contribute to the construction of better structures. We will find out the basic and technical details, design considerations, factors affecting the performance and limitations of PCP in the blog. Pervious concrete is a special form of concrete with a high porosity used for concrete flatwork applications that allows direct passage of precipitation water and other sources, thereby reducing the runoff from a site and allowing groundwater recharge.… Read More Pervious Concrete- All Factors Affecting, Limitations and Methodology Explained

Reactive Powder Concrete- 6 Components and All Properties Explained

Reactive Powder Concrete (RPC) is a type of Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC). The main constituents are cement, sand, silica fume, steel fiber and quartz powder with minimal water to binder ratio, without coarse aggregate. In RPC, water- binder ratio is very low, CA is absent- reduce the heterogeneity of concrete mix and optimize microstructure. Precise gradation of particles yields compact, well-arranged and high strength hydrates of maximum density.… Read More Reactive Powder Concrete- 6 Components and All Properties Explained
