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 (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
Shotcrete is a method of placing concrete where concrete/mortar is sprayed at high velocity to an overhead or vertical surface. Concrete is conventionally placed on the ground or to the formwork and compacted using appropriate vibration methods.… Read More Shotcrete – A total overview||Shotcrete vs Gunite
Self healing concrete is a mind-blowing innovation in civil engineering. It can potentially contribute to ensure a longer lifespan of a structure. In this article, we will find out the details about bacterial concrete. A bacterial concrete is most effective in this category.… Read More Self Healing Concrete ||Bacterial Concrete -Preparation and Advantages
Water to cement ratio is the ratio between the weight of water to the cement weight used in a concrete design mix. The water to cement ratio can significantly impact the workability and strength of the concrete.… Read More Water to cement ratio – An Important Strength Factor.
