Download Concrete Technology for Cast In-situ Foundations (CIRIA by Neil A. Henderson PDF

By Neil A. Henderson

Concrete expertise for forged in-situ foundations specializes in the concrete know-how matters in relation to universal buried starting place forms together with piles, diaphragm partitions and pad, strip and raft foundations. This file offers counsel at the research and building parameters to be thought of within the choice of in-situ concrete for starting place functions. The document additionally discusses environmental matters and sustainable development practices. It presents the fashion designer, the contractor, and the concrete manufacturer with present assistance at the software of in-situ concrete know-how for starting place purposes. It presents suggestions at the research of sturdiness and construction-related parameters to be thought of within the choice of in-situ concrete for origin functions. The record relies on an in depth evaluate of released literature, session with specialists and practitioners in the box, and case stories demonstrating stable perform and highlighting severe concerns.

The Sceptical Optimist: Why Technology Isn't the Answer to Everything

The quick advancements in applied sciences -- particularly computing and the appearance of many 'smart' units, in addition to fast and perpetual communique through the net -- has ended in a regularly voiced view which Nicholas Agar describes as 'radical optimism'. Radical optimists declare that accelerating technical development will quickly finish poverty, sickness, and lack of awareness, and enhance our happiness and future health.

This section discusses the fresh and hardened properties suitable for in-situ concrete for foundation applications. It also provides information and guidance on the selection of concrete materials, concrete specification, placing methods and construction techniques for foundation applications. 2 FRESH PROPERTIES After mixing, operations such as transporting, placing, compacting and finishing of fresh concrete can all considerably affect the properties of hardened concrete. Most concrete designs for in-situ foundations aim to produce fresh concrete with the following characteristics: • flowable • cohesive • stable • compacting under its own weight (particularly for deep foundations) • minimal tendency for segregation and bleeding • able to be placed so that a continuous monolithic concrete is formed.

6 Portland-limestone cement (PLC) Licensed copy:University of Manchester, 05/11/2007, Uncontrolled Copy, © CIRIA Most PCs contain up to five per cent limestone as a minor additional constituent. In addition, Portland limestone cement (PLC) conforming to BS 7583 (1996) is also available. BS EN 197-1 allows the use of limestone up to 35 per cent if combined with PC only. However, care should be taken when using PLCs in concrete for foundation applications. The use of PLC concrete is only permitted in Design Chemical Class 1 conditions (BRE Special Digest 1.
