Q No. 2 - What are the steps involved in the concreting process, explain?

Ans. Steps In Concreting:

  • Batching: The process of measuring different concrete materials such as cement, coarse aggregate, sand, water for the making of concrete is known as batching.
  • Mixing.
  • Transportation:
  • Compaction.
  • Curing.

Q No. 3. Describe briefly the various methods of concrete curing.

Ans.
  • Shading: By this method, the evaporation of water is locked in the concrete surface.
  • Covering: The Surface With Waterproof Paper:
  • Sprinkling Water:
  • Ponding:
  • Membrane Curing:
  • Steam Curing

Q No. 5. What Do You Understand by M25 Concrete?

Ans. According to IS 456 : 2000, M refers Mix and 25 refers the characteristic compressive. Strength of concrete cube of 150mmX150mmX150 mm tested at the end of 28 days should be minimum 25 N/Sq.mm

Q No 8. How to increase the bearing capacity of soil?

Ans. The following techniques can be used for improving bearing capacity of soil as per the site condition.
  • Increasing depth of foundation.
  • Draining the soil.
  • Compacting the soil.
  • Confining the soil.
  • Replacing the poor soil.
  • Using grouting material.
  • Stabilizing the soil with chemicals.

Quality Assurance (QA): Quality Assurance is a set of activities for ensuring quality in the processes by which works are done. Quality Assurance is the process of managing for quality.

Quality Control (QC): Quality Control is a set of activities for ensuring quality in works. The activities focus on identifying defects in the actual products produced. Quality Control is used to verify the quality of the output.

1. What is the bending moment (BM) & Shear force (SF) – Explain.
Answer:-

A bending moment is the reaction induced in a structural element when an external force or moment is applied to the element causing the element to bend. The most common or simplest structural element subjected to bending moments is the beam.


Shear force is the force in the beam acting perpendicular to its longitudinal (x) axis. For design purposes, the beam's ability to resist shear force is more important than its ability to resist an axial force. Axial force is the force in the beam acting parallel to the longitudinal axis.

4. What is the minimum curing period?
Answer:-

IS 456 – 2000 recommends that curing duration of concrete must be at least 7 days in case of Ordinary Portland Cement, at least 10 days for concrete with Mineral admixtures. It also recommends that the curing duration should not be less than 10 days for concrete of OPC exposed to dry and hot weather conditions and 14 days for concrete with mineral admixtures in hot and dry weather.

6. What is Water-Cement Ratio and How it is related to the strength of concrete?
Answer:-
The water-cement ratio is the ratio of the weight of water to the weight of cement used in a concrete mix. A lower ratio leads to higher strength and durability, but may make the mix difficult to work i.e. low workability of Concrete Mix. Workability can be increased with the use of admixtures.

Can you send all answer sir,please
Dear,
Yes, I can post all answers in one post but as you are aware with the "Human Behaviour" no one is going to take interest in long posts. So we keep the post short & brief so you can enhance your knowledge with the "CIVIL4M". This is best suitable site for our community till date because it allows you to read & download the data (Registered members can download everything, Registration is free, they dont charge for it) . Don't you think the same.

You can also post some answers with the best of your knowledge and we will keep posting the answers stay tuned with us.

Thank You
