Dear Sir,

What would be the lap length of a reinforcement steel(25 dia.); if it will be done by mechanical welding method. In IS code the length is not mentioned is not mentioned But, procedure is there.

hi mishra ji,

in mechanical welding of reinforcement bars there is no need of laps. just weld bars by properly made butt weld

stuart alexander says:

concret cubes you have made and sent off for independent testing have failed.what steps should be taken to enable tracking of the tested concrete back to pre delivery by the ready mix company and the quality standards that should be in place to prevent such occurrence.

Dear Sir,
I ‘ve completed my B.Tech in civil engg…i would like to go for some courses ie as an additional qualification apart from M.Tech could you please suggest some course which would be beneficial for my career..

Lakshay Gupta says:

Dear Sir

I have done my B.Tech (Civil Engineering) from Dr. B.R. Ambedkar National Institute of Technology, Jalandhar in 2009.

Now, I want to setup a manufacturing unit of concrete interlocking tiles, paving blocks, kerb stone, chequered tiles. Please give me some reference so that I can study the technical aspects of manufacturing of these items. Particularly, I want to know the mix proportioning, and about the admixtures that can be used.

Looking forward to your response

Thanking You

anish sadasivan says:

hai sir,
i have tried two three m40 mix but this mix is not get the strength as per condition so please sent me a good m40 mix for column ,
[ultratech cement and M sand is using for concrete and 20mm,12mm metal also available
Minimum Cement = 450 kg/m3,
Maximum water cement ratio = 0.35
BASF Admixtures is using ]

i need mix design ratio for all . for exa 1:2:4is m30

nivas says:

how to calculate the mix Design of concrete by Density or by Volume ?
which one is better?and give the BS STD refferance

kaluba moses says:

Hi Sir,
will you kindly advise me on how concrete behaves in water. i mean where you use concrete as
piles to go through the water volume and have your building on top of the water
