Concrete and Steel Tests

BIP Geotechnical and Material Testing Engineers and Hydrant Bakakeng, Baguio City

In the construction, it is better to know the effectiveness of concrete and steel to become used particularly in a high go up building. The Laboratory Number 1 for this Midterm is to determine the slump of freshly cement mixed with Portland cement tangible, the strength plus the mixtures of the concrete. This summer 27, 2012, we performed our laboratory. We the second group, employ crushed aggregates, cement, fine sand, water applying Class A mixture. After mixing up it we put it in to the mold in three levels, each around one third in the volume of the mold. All of us rod every single layer twenty-five strokes applying tamping pole. After the top layers had been rodded, all of us strike off of the surface of concrete to keep an excess of concrete floor above the top of the mold. We all remove instantly the mould and gauge the slump by simply examining the vertical big difference between the the top of mold and the displaced original center from the top of the specimen. In the second test, we put same sample in the cylindrical surface area mold. We do the same procedure means put it similar to the downturn test. The sample will probably be in the mould for 1 day and will be include in the water intended for 15 days. All of us will need at least twenty eight days to present this test to the BIP Geotechnical and Materials Tests Engineers and Water Supply in Bakakeng, Baguio City. Were not able to present it in its actual 28 days because of our examination. August 28, 2012, the 32th days of the concrete sample together with a single 10 millimeter and one 12 logistik steel bars, we visited Baguio Town for therapy. When we reach our destination, we found their clinical and gear used. We all saw likewise the types of woods and stone in the first floors laboratory. Inside the first step, each uses sulfur to help make the round surface area of our concrete floor sample in flat. They put our test in the cement unit evaluation machine and place a minimum force/mega Pascal to determine its power. But unfortunately,...
