# Concrete

Are you facing any sort of trouble to design structural elements? You have not any kind of software to resolve the issue? Or you are unable to afford commercial software for design? Then you are at the right place at the moment by reading this article as this is going to share some excel sheets …

## How To Calculate Staircase Concrete Quantity

Concrete quantity calculation is the first step of the process of building a concrete staircase. People need to know how much of the needed materials should they buy so the construction would go without problems. But, this is a huge mathematical process, showing the dimensions of the stairs and the way they’re gonna be build. …

## How to Calculate Materials for the Different Ratio of Concrete

Mix design is commonly referred by mix proportion in a selective zone where same materials are used in concrete. How do we estimate materials for different ratio concrete? Mix design is commonly referred by mix proportion in a selective zone where same materials are used in concrete. The most common ratio referred to column concrete …

## Different Types of Concrete Mix

Concrete is made up of cement, aggregate (particles of stone) and sharp sand. When you mix these ingredients with water, they bind into a solid, hard material. In different proportions, they produce concrete of different strengths for different uses. It’s important to get the proportions right. If there’s too much aggregate, you’ll struggle to get …

## Circular Column Design

Circular reinforced columns have higher strength than square or rectangular columns. Circular cross-section columns are more resistant to buckling as compared to a rectangular cross-section. Furthermore, circular sections will have uniform torsion characteristics. circular column design spreadsheet example The difference between the strength of two different types of columns: Columns having shear reinforcement in form of spirals gives better …

To make concrete there are four basic materials you need: portland cement, sand, aggregate (stone), and water. The ratio of aggregate to sand to cement is an important factor in determining the compressive strength of the concrete mixture. The mixing process is the fact that the better you mix the concrete, the stronger it will …

The Concrete Calculator is very useful for quantifying the volume and weight of the concrete necessary for the size, or area, of the land that requires to be covered. The concrete calculator can be used to estimate the Staining Concrete, Stamping Concrete, Concrete Overlays, Concrete Resurfacing, Concrete Polishing, Concrete Dyes, Colored Concrete etc. Portland …

## 3 Types of Concrete Joints in Building Structures

Concrete joints are used to compensate when concrete expands or shrinks with changes in temperature. Concrete joints are normally used to prevent cracks when the concrete shrinks, by creating forming, tooling, sawing and placing joint formers. The pre-planned cracks will provide a better finish concrete product and will be formed in specific locations where those …

## 10 Things to Remember During Concrete Mix Design and Concrete Trials

Good quality concrete starts with the quality of materials, cost effective designs is actually a by-product of selecting the best quality material and good construction practices. Following are 10 Things to remember during Concrete Mix Design and Concrete Trials. 1. ACI and other standards only serves as a guide, initial designs must be confirmed by …

## Specification for Transporting and Placing Concrete

Concrete drop during vertical placement shall not exceed 2.5m. For heights greater than 2.5m, the Contractor shall pour concrete through enclose chutes or access hatches, details of which shall be approved by the Engineer. This must comply with four main requirements, namely: It must be rapid so that the concrete does not dry out, lose …
