    Sir, I am facing a situation where i have to design an existing structure to the extension as planned. So i am facing a problem in case where how exactly the homogeneity is maintained for the both structures. Please clarify the above mentioned and please suggest me the codes which will give guidelines about grouting as well as anchoring as per IS code of design.

    Sir . I consulted a guy to get my house constructed.
    Everything gone fine , but the soil is quite rocky . So , constructed is suggesting to make foundation of just 3.5 feet in Slope footing.

    Will such design sustain a 3 story long house with complete strength ?
    I need suggestion , please help.

    Thanks !
    Best Regards.

    I need to help for aggregate specification for heat resistance concrete .

  • Sourabh August 4, 2019 at 12:49 am

    My question is which is the best cement. Ultratech or coromandal king in PPC segment… Most important WHY?

    • Akash Srivastava December 5, 2019 at 1:09 pm

      Mycem is one of the best cement becouse it blends mixture properly and give mixture proper potential to set in less time with less quantity…

    how do I get a perfect formula for mix design of concrete paver block with a grade designation of M40 to M50.

  • Veera August 16, 2019 at 9:24 pm

    Design a concrete mix of M45 grade. Take a standard deviation of 5MPa. The specific
    gravities of coarse aggregate and fine aggregate are 2.85 and 2.75 respectively. The bulk
    density of coarse aggregate is 1600 kg/m3
    and fineness modulus of fine aggregate is 2.70. A
    slump of 60mm is necessary. The water absorption of coarse aggregate is 2% and free
    moisture in fine aggregate is 1%.Design the mix by using IS code method

    I have stopped my Construction work from 1 year , I have just raised Columns with it TMT rods exposed to atmosphere, it’s started to rust slightly, Can I Paint those rods with Metal primer n restart d work After 1 year , or should I have to Cut those rods and re lap it..???
