Mild Steel Bars in Cement Concrete

Cement concrete is strong in compressive strength but weak in tensile strength. To increase tensile strength we use mild steel bars in cement concrete. Steel bars used in cement concrete provide good strength to the structure. A strong building structure is what all need for their homes, offices and steel is the best option used with cement concrete.

1) Overlapping in Steel Bars in Reinforced Cement Concrete

There should be no joints in steel bars used for RCC work. If it is necessary to use small length steel bars, proper overlap should be given.


The joints of bars should be welded in case the diameter of bars is more than 36 mm. Overlapping of bars should not touch each other and they should be kept apart. Where it is not possible, overlapping bars should be bound together at intervals not exceeding twice the diameter of such bars with two strands of steel wires trusted tight. The overlap should be staggered for different bars. The length of overlap should not be less than 50 times the diameter of steel bar.

2) Precautions while Bending, Binding and Placing Steel Bars in RCC Work

  • Steel bars are clear, free from loose mil scales, dust, loose rust and any oily materials.
  • The bars used at site are manufactured from reputed brand and have a full length.
  • Use full length steel bars in beams, slabs etc if not possible, proper overlap should be given in steel bar and overlap should be staggered.
  • Tor, ribbed and twisted steel bars are used as they have more tensile stress. Also they are economical and have more strength in cement concrete.
  • The bars must be in full length according to the design.
  • Proper sizes/ height of crank bars are given in slab and beams etc.
  • Proper support under crank bars of beams and slabs must be given.
  • Steel bars are not disturbed while lying cement concrete.
  • If steel bars are more in number in beams, the bars are placed in two layers by giving spacer between the layers.

 

3) Checklist/Points before Laying Cement Concrete

  • Form work /shuttering should be checked for line, level and its strength.
  • Steel bars and their placing should be checked.
  • Proper cover to steel bars and adequate numbers of sports/chairs under crank bars must be checked.
  • Proper planks or plates provided for walking over reinforcement are not disturbed during working.
  • Raw materials should be proper and sufficient in quantity.
  • Electrical pipes, fan box etc. should be laid before lying cement concrete.
  • Gap in shuttering plates is sealed properly by jute bags /mortar /rubber etc.
  • Shuttering plates are properly oiled.
  • Curing arrangement must be checked in advance for smooth curing after laying RCC slab.
  • Precautionary arrangements are taken in case of rains etc.

Mass Concrete
Mass concrete means cement concrete used for constructions of dams, massive structures, raft slabs and heavy structure beam foundation. There should be rigid/strict control on concrete work with view to ensure durability, strength, and uniformity. In big projects detailed specification is issued separately for individual project according to site requirement and other situation at site of work. Mass concrete is used in important project having heavy load and different types of stresses. Any small deviation in specifications or any irregularity omitted or committed may cause failure of the structure.

In the construction of building work, there is need of various types of building materials which are used during the construction work at different stages. According to structural drawing, cement concrete of different qualities or mix are used in the building at different stages according to the type of building.

Now you can construct your home/ building utilizing modern technology, known as ready mix concrete which not only creates a strong building but also helps in providing ease at work/site. This article tells you about ready mix concrete, preparation of ready mix concrete and its benefits.
Shuttering or Form work is most important part of any construction project. Steel, Wood or other likewise material is us
Every process needs proper guideline and expert person or team to manage in construction or in any field. Even working with steel in RCC we need the same so just read the article to know Labor Guideline for Steel bars in RCC.
Columns are used to support the beam or roofs and transfer the load to the earth. These serve the decorative purpose also
The same cement can provide better coating to particle and hence more strength when coarse aggregate is used.
The cement concrete is a mixture of cement fine aggregate, coarse aggregate and water.
Concrete is strong in compressive stress but is weak in tensile stress.
The water for nominal mix concrete shall generally be equal to 5% by weight of aggregate and 30% by weight of cement.
For general work the different materials required for cement concrete mix is measured loose through measuring box by volume for 1 cement bag at one time.
Read points should be kept in mind while collecting raw materials for cement concrete in construction work.
The concrete cover for steel bar is very much necessary to protect the steel against corrosion(rusting) and to provide resistance against fire.
Compressive strength is the most important property of hardened concrete. It can be measured easily on standard sized cube (15 cm) and is often taken as an index of the overall quality of concrete.
The cement concrete is a mixture of cement fine aggregate, coarse aggregate and water.
