Concrete Spalling: Causes and How It Can Be Prevented

Concrete Spalling: Causes and How It Can Be Prevented Concrete spalling is one of the most serious issues affecting the durability of reinforced concrete constructions. It occurs for a variety of reasons, which we will explore in the last section of this article.   The spalling usually occurs in older buildings. Typically, it begins when […]

Factors Affecting Concrete Strength

FACTORS AFFECTING CONCRETE STRENGTH AND WORKABILITY The strength and workability of concrete are both critical factors that need to be considered in the making of concrete. The strength of concrete determines its ability to withstand various loads, while workability refers to the ease with which it can be placed, compacted, and finished. Both factors are […]

Causes of Cracks in Concrete

Causes of Cracks in Concrete and How to Prevent Cracks in Concrete? What Is Concrete Crack? Cracking lines on the concrete’s surface may be found along which it splits without breaking apart. These lines are known as concrete cracks. Causes of Cracks in Concrete Cracking is one of the most common problems in concrete and […]

Concrete Vibrator

A concrete vibrator is used to ensure that the concrete becomes compact while putting concrete i.e. the concrete is placed without the inclusion of air bubbles which can affect its strength and it is necessary in most cases because the fluidity of concrete is limited by the amount of water used in the mixture. What […]

Fiber Reinforced Concrete

What is Fiber Reinforced Concrete? Fiber-reinforced concrete is a type of concrete that consists of cement, aggregates, and a small amount of fibers. Fibers are used in concrete to reduce permeability, bleeding, and the formation of minor cracks. Additionally, fibers increase concrete’s tensile strength and impact resistance. The improvement of weakness is determined by several […]

Epoxy Flooring

EPOXY FLOORING: TYPES | ADVANTAGE AND DISADVANTAGES An epoxy floor is one that has an epoxy layer that is at least two millimetres thick. The depth of epoxy is what distinguishes epoxy flooring from epoxy coating. It is also referred to as “resinous flooring.” Epoxy flooring is extremely durable, long-lasting, and decorative for any surface. […]

Pervious Concrete

What Is Pervious Concrete? Pervious concrete is a type of concrete that consists of cement, coarse aggregates, water, and, if required, admixtures and other cementitious materials (such as silica fume, fly ash, and so on). In this type of concrete, fine aggregates are not typically used in the concrete matrix. As a result, the void […]

Foam Concrete

What is Foam Concrete? Foam concrete is a fantastic material for producing large quantities of relatively low-strength void-filling material; it can be easily pumped long distances and it will fill most cavities.  Since foam concrete is so fluid and flowing, it can “search” without needing to be leveled or compacted. In addition, foam concrete can […]
