Estimating Life cost of a Construction Project

LIFE CYCLE COST IN CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS Life cycle cost in construction projects is a process of economic decision analysis, which helps taking decisions on investments in new construction. These decisions on investments are analyzed for the payback over the life of the investment. This method is also known as life cycle costing technique in construction […]

Comparing High Strength and Performance Concrete individually

High-Strength versus High Performance Concrete High strength concrete and high-performance concrete are not synonymous because strength and performance of concrete are different properties of concrete. High-strength concrete is defined based on its compressive strength at a given age. During 1970s, any concrete mixtures which showed 40 MPa or more compressive strength at 28 days were designated […]

Change Mix Design according to Coarse Aggregates

Coarse Aggregate Properties affecting Mix Design Strength Maximum size of coarse aggregate: Maximum size of aggregate affects the workability and strength of concrete. It also influences the water demand for getting a certain workability and fine aggregate content required for achieving a cohesive mix. For a given weight, higher the maximum size of aggregate, lower […]
