3.2 Aggregates: Unless otherwise the aggregates shall conform to the requirements as per IS 383:1970. Aggregate in general designates both fine and coarse inert materials used in the manufacture of concrete. Fine aggregate is aggregate all of which passes through 4.75 mm sieve. Coarse aggregate is aggregate most of which is retained on 4.75 mm sieve.
All fine and coarse aggregates proposed for use in the work shall be subject to Engineer-in-Charge approval and after specific materials have been accepted the source of supply of such materials should not be changed without prior approval of Engineer-in-Charge.
All coarse and fine aggregates shall be stacked in stock separately in stockpiles in the material yard near the work site in bins properly constructed to avoid intermixing of different aggregates. Contamination with foreign materials and earth during storage and heaping the materials shall be avoided. The aggregate must be of specified quality not only at the time of receiving at site but more so at the time of loading in to mixer. Rackers shall be used for lifting the coarse aggregates from bins or stockpiles. Coarse aggregate shall be piled in layers not exceeding 1.20 m in height to prevent coning or segregation. Each layer shall cover the entire area of the stockpile before succeeding layers are started. Aggregates that have become segregated shall be rejected.
Coarse aggregate for concrete, except as noted above and for other than light weight concrete shall conform to IS 383. This shall consist of natural or crushed stone and gravel and shall be clean and free from elongated, flaky or laminated pieces, adhering coatings, clay lumps, coal residue, clinkers slag, alkali, mica, organic matter or other deleterious matter.
Coarse aggregate shall be graded in both cases; the grading shall be within the following limits.
The pieces shall be angular in shape and shall have granular or crystalline surface. Mica and shale, if present, shall be only in such quantities that will not, in the opinion of engineer affect adversely the strength and / or durability of concrete. The maximum size of coarse aggregate shall be in no case greater than ¼ of the minimum thickness of the member, provided that the concrete can be placed without difficulty so as to surround all reinforcement thoroughly and fill the corners of the form. Plums above 150 mm and up to any reasonable size can be used in plain mass concrete work of large dimensions up to a maximum limit of 20% of volume of concrete when specifically approved by Engineer-in-Charge. For heavily reinforced concrete members the nominal maximum size of the aggregate shall be 5 mm less than the minimum clear distance between the reinforcing main bars or 5 mm less than the minimum cover to the reinforcement whichever is smaller. The amount of fine particles occurring in the free state or as loose adherent shall not exceed 1% when determined by laboratory sedimentation tests as per IS 2386. After 24 hours’ immersion in water, a previously dried sample shall not have gained more than 10% of its oven dry weight in air, as determined by IS 2386.
Sand shall be clean and free from dust or organic foreign matter and its grading shall be within the limits. Sand from river should be used for construction work preferably.
Unless otherwise stated the water quality and requirements for concrete will be in conformity with IS 456: 1978. Water used for both mixing and curing shall be free from injurious amounts of deleterious materials. Potable waters are generally satisfactory for mixing and curing concrete. Water cement ratio should be 1:0.5.
3.5 Reinforcement steel
All MS reinforcing bars shall conform strictly to IS 432: 1982 and high strength deformed steel (Tor steel) bars should conform to IS 1786: 1985. All reinforcement shall be clean and free from loose mill scales, cost, loose rust, coats of paints, oil or other coatings which may destroy or reduce bond.
All reinforcing bars shall conform to drawings and dimensions shown on the drawing or where required to carry out intent of drawings or specifications. Reinforcement shall not be bent or straightened in a manner injurious to the materials.
Bars containing cracks or splits shall be rejected. They shall be bent cold, except bars of over 25 mm in diameter which may be bent hot if specifically approved by the Engineer-in-Charge. Bars which depend for their strength on cold working shall not be bent hot. Bars bent hot shall not be heated beyond cherry red colour (nor exceeding 845 Deg.C) and after bending the same shall be allowed to cool slowly without quenching. No reinforcement shall be bent when in position in the work without approval, whether or not it is partially embedded in hardened concrete. Bars with kinks or bends not shown on drawings shall not be used.
Reinforcing bars supplied bent or in coils, shall be straightened before they are cut to size. Straightening of bars shall be done in cold and without damaging the bars. This is considered as a part of reinforcement bending fabrication work.
4 Mixing of cement concrete
The quantities of cement shall be determined by weight. Ordinary Portland cement shall be taken to weigh 1442 kg/m3. The quantities of fine and coarse aggregates shall be determined either by volume for ordinary concrete and by weight for controlled one. The proportions of volume or weights specified are based on dry aggregates, due allowance is to be made for bulking or variation in weight of aggregates according to IS 2386 (Part-III): 1963.
All concrete shall be mixed in a mechanical mixer until there is uniform distribution of the materials and the mass is uniform in colour and consistency but in no cases hall the mixing be done for less than two minutes. Hand mixing shall not be allowed for any concreting work on the job.
5 Mix design
All concrete in the works shall be of design mix as defined in IS 456 unless it is a nominal mix concrete such as 1:2:4, 1:3:6, 1:4:8 or 1:5:10.
It shall be very clearly understood that whenever the class of concrete such as M20 is specified it shall be the contractor’s responsibility to ensure that minimum crushing strength stipulated for the respective class of Concrete is obtained at works. The maximum total quantity of aggregate by weight per 50 kg of cement shall not exceed 450 kg except when otherwise specifically permitted by Engineer-in-Charge.
6 Proportioning, consistency, batching and mixing of concrete
6.2 Aggregate: The proportions which shall be decided by conducting preliminary test shall be by volume. These proportions of cement, fine and coarse aggregates shall be maintained during subsequent concrete mixing. The supply of properly graded aggregate of uniform quality shall be maintained over the period of work, the grading of aggregates shall be controlled by obtaining the coarse aggregate in different sizes and blending them in the right proportions. The different sizes shall be stocked in separate stock piles. The grading of coarse and fine aggregate shall be checked as frequently as possible as determined by engineer, to ensure maintaining of grading in accordance with the samples used in preliminary mix design. The material shall be stock piled well in advance of use.
6.3 Cement: The cement shall be measured by volume in normal cases. However, in case of central weight batching plants, cement may be weighed for each batch if so desired by Engineer-in-Charge.
6.4 Water: Only such quantity of water shall be added to the cement and aggregates in the concrete mix as to ensure dense concrete, specified surface finish, satisfactory workability, consistent with the strength stipulated for each class of concrete. The water added to the mix shall be such as not to cause segregation of material or the collection of excessive free water on the surface of the concrete. The water cement (W/C) ratio is defined as the volume of water in the mix (including the surface moisture of the aggregates) divided by the volume of cement in the mix. The actual water cement ratio to be adopted shall be determined in each instance by the contractor and approved by the Engineer-in-Charge.
The W/C ratio specified for use by engineer shall be maintained. The contractor shall determine the water content of the aggregates as frequently as directed by engineer as the work progress and as specified in IS 2386 (Part-Ill) and the amount of water added at the mixer shall be adjusted as directed by engineer so as to maintain the specified W/C ratio. To allow for the variation in volume of aggregates due to variation in their moisture content suitable adjustments in the volume of aggregates shall also be made.
7 Curing, protecting, repairing and finishing
All concrete shall be cured by keeping it continuously damp for the period of time required for complete hydration and hardening to take place. Preference shall be given to the use of continuous sprays or ponded water continuously saturated covering of sacks, canvas, hessian or other absorbent materials, or approved effective curing compounds applied with spraying equipment capable of producing a smooth, even textured coat. Extra precautions shall be exercised in curing concrete during cold and hot water as outlined hereinafter. The quality of curing water shall be the same as that used for mixing concrete.
Certain types of finish or preparation for overlaying concrete must be done at certain stage of the curing process and special treatment may be required for specific concrete surface finish.
Curing of concrete made of high alumina cement and super-sulphated cement shall be carried out as directed by engineer.
Fresh concrete shall be kept continuously wet for a minimum period of 10 days from the date of placing of concrete following a lapse of 12 to 14 hours after lying of concrete. The curing of horizontal surfaces exposed to the drying winds shall however begin immediately after the concrete has hardened.
Water shall be applied uniformly to concrete surfaces within 1 hour after concrete has set. Water shall be applied to formed surfaces immediately upon removal of forms. Quantity of water applied shall be controlled so as to prevent erosion of freshly placed concrete.
Whenever, by the judgment of engineer, it may be necessary to omit the continuous spray method, a covering of clean sand or other approved means such as wet gunny bags which will prevent loss of moisture from the concrete, may be used. No type of covering will be approved which would stain or damage the concrete during or after the curing period. Covering shall be kept continuously wet during the curing period. Surface coating type compounds shall be used only by special permission of engineer. Curing compounds shall be liquid type white pigmented. Other curing compounds shall be used on surfaces where future blending with concrete, water or acid proof membrane or painting is specified.
All equipment and materials required for curing shall be on hand and ready for use before concrete is placed.
7.3 Protecting fresh concrete
Fresh concrete shall be protected from defacements and damage due to construction operation by leaving forms in place for an ample period as specified later in this specification. Newly placed concrete shall be protected by approved means such as tarpaulins from rain, sun and winds. Steps as approved by engineer shall also be taken to protect immature concrete from damage by debris, excessive loading, vibration, abrasion or contact with other materials etc. that may impair the strength and / or durability of the concrete. Workmen shall be warned against and prevented from disturbing green concrete during its setting period.
