Learn more about Fine Aggregates of Concrete Reinforcement

Fine aggregates are of sizes ranging from 4.7 mm to 1.50 microns. The quality of fine aggregates are greatly affects the quality of concrete. UltraTech expert will take you through the process of assisting the quality of the fine aggregates.

Natural Sands, Manufactured Sands and crust gravel are the different varieties of fine aggregates. Sand should be hard, clean and free from authorent coatings, organic matel etc…

Fine aggregates should not contain more than 5% of Silt, clay lumps, iron pyrites, alkalis, salts, coal, mica, sea shells/shale.

The Silt contains should not be more than 3% for river sands and 15% for manufactured sand. These materials adversely affect the hardening strength and also durability of concrete by initialization of collision of reinforcement.

Any organic impurity like leads, grussles, decade vagitation will interfare with setting and binding properties of concrete.

Sea sand should not be used as it causes affrosion, corrosion of reinforcement and retard setting hardening of concrete. Damp sand exhibits more volumes. This is called bulking. With the damp sand is measure by volume upto 15% extra sand is to be added to compensate of bulking.

– Fine Aggregate, generally known as Sand, plays a vital role in concrete and mortar.
– It Should be free from silt and impurities
– Use of Sea sand causes corresion of reinforcement
– In case of damp sand, upto 15% extra sand is to be added to compensate for Bulking
– Manufactured sand can be used but crusher dust should be avoided

Download Civil engineering Discipline Application for FREE

Civil engineering is arguably the oldest engineering discipline. It deals with the built environment and can be dated to the first time someone placed a roof over his or her head or laid a tree trunk across a river to make it easier to get across.

The built environment encompasses much of what defines modern civilization. Buildings and bridges are often the first constructions that come to mind, as they are the most conspicuous creations of structural engineering, one of civil engineering’s major sub-disciplines.

Roads, railroads, subway systems, and airports are designed by transportation engineers, another category of civil engineering. And then there are the less visible creations of civil engineers.

Civil Engineering Book and Reference – A Free Guide to Civil Engineers

Civil engineering is arguably the oldest engineering discipline. It deals with the built environment and can be dated to the first time someone placed a roof over his or her head or laid a tree trunk across a river to make it easier to get across.

Civil engineering is a professional engineering discipline that deals with the design, construction, and maintenance of the physical and naturally built environment, including works like roads, bridges, canals, dams, and buildings. Civil engineering is the second-oldest engineering discipline after military engineering, and it is defined to distinguish non-military engineering from military engineering.

Please look at the Web pages of our individual faculty members to learn more about their special interests as examples of what civil engineering and engineering mechanics is and can be about.
