RCC pillar

Topic: RCC pillar

Hello Experts,
Could anyone shed your comments on this fact.

 The fact of the matter is that, I have seen constructions where brick walls are first laid with gap for rcc pillars.  When the rcc pillars are erected the concrete covers some part of the brick wall also thus the rcc pillar and brick wall become one.

I know this procedure saves shuttering at two sides because of the brick wall and also the wall is held firm by the pillar. 

Is this the right process?  Please give your critical views.

Thanks in advance!

Dear Gepter
                 The process of filling the column or pillar is not technical.You should first fill the column with doing proper form work and compact cement concrete by vibrator.
The process tell by you have following disadvantage

Disadvantages

  • This is not water tight shuttering as the size and thickness of planks differ and are not of same size. Due to this difference the water and cement flow to the ground from joints and reduce the strength of concrete.
  • Bottom level of RCC slab is not in straight line and the surface being uneven, the thickness of plaster is more which remains weak.
  • Due to leakage of cement slurry through joints, earth work below ’'Ballies’ may settle and create problems.
  • In some cases wooden planks can not bear the weight of concrete. Due to low strength there is bending or deflection in wooden planks. Sometimes the planks may break.

Post subject: RCC pillar bond with wall

Thanks you Mr. SL Gupta, for your practical advice.

Could you please suggest any way of bonding the brick wall to the RCC pillar. 

I have seen people put extra bar bent at right angle on the side of the pillar.  Once the pillar is ready and form work removed, the extra bar is straightened to blend into the wall.  Is this practice ok or does it has its flaws?

Thanks,
Gpeter

Dear Gpeter
              There is no need for bonding the RCC Column/ pillar with brick wall. In all the engineering works or building you can see that no one doing this type of bonding. The bonding is not required as the thermal expansion of concrete and brick work is different create cracks later on. Th e best way is at the time of plaster you should make groves between pillar and brick work which minimize the cracks and
     add beauty to the plaster and this is the right way of engineering.
