Category : Concrete Types

There are various types of concrete for different purpose. Information on roller compacted, magnesium phosphate, polymer cement, green concrete, sulphate resistant, cold weather, self compacting concrete is provided.

VACUUM CONCRETE: TECHNIQUES, EQUIPMENTS & ADVANTAGES

Water-cement ratio is detrimental for concrete. We always try to restrict the water-cement ratio in order to achieve higher strength. The chemical reaction of cement with water requires a water-cement ratio of less than 0.38, whereas the adopted water-cement ratio ...

SELF COMPACTING CONCRETE WITH TESTS

For several years beginning in 1983, the problem of the durability of concrete structures was a major topic of interest in Japan. The creation of durable concrete structures requires adequate compaction by skilled workers. However, the gradual ...

ROLLER COMPACTED CONCRETE

ROLLER COMPACTED CONCRETE IN PAVEMENT AND DAMS Roller-compacted concrete (RCC) is a concrete of zero-slump consistency in its unhardened state. It is transported, placed, and compacted using earth and rockfill construction equipment. Roller-compacted concrete (RCC) is the most important development in concrete ...
