    hello civil engineering fraternity...

    I am constructing my house on a 300sq yard plot and need help in judging the quality of material being used like bricks, sand, cement, coarse aggregates etc.

    Please send me details of what ever you feel will be useful during the construction phase, i have hired the contractor but still i need to have some quality testing reference material with me.

    Here are few basic things you should keep in mind

    1) Bricks - Take two bricks and strike them together, they should give a ringing sound..
    2) Cement - Use a branded one like Ultratech or JK cement
    3) Steel - Again go with branded - Kamdhenu or Jyoti
