M20 Grade of Concrete: In this article, you will know the Two methods for making M20 Grade of Concrete at the Construction Site. In the first method, we use the Measuring Box, and in the second method, we use Mortar Pan. Generally, these two methods are adopted nowadays. The standard Dimension of Measuring Box = 1 feet x 1 Feet x 1 Feet 3 inch (1′ x 1′ x 1.25′) Volume of Measuring Box = 1.25 CFT = 0.03539 cum. Now let’s find the Volume of 1 Bag of Cement. Density of Cement = 1440 Kg/m3 Weight of 1 Bag…

### Storage of Construction Material- Steel Bars, Cement, Bricks & Aggregate At Construction Site

Storage of Construction Materials (Steel Bar) at Construction Site. As we know that steel bars cover 25 -30% of the overall cost of the building so it is very crucial that steel bars must be handled and stored with precaution on the site. There are different processes or operations where laborers need to take care of steel bar such as unloading, Stacking, Cutting, Bending, Fabrication, etc. Reinforcement has the capability to resist lateral forces and provide strength and ductility to the buildings, so it is very necessary that all these loading and unloading operations should be done properly on site.…

### What is Galvanized Wire and Its Applications

Galvanized Wire and Its Applications Galvanized is a type of wire which is manufactured under the chemical process of galvanization. Galvanization is the chemical process in which zinc coating is done to steel or iron in order to prevent rusting. It is the most commonly used method of protecting rust from iron. It is manufactured with low carbon steel, having high tensile strength. Its thickness is measured in a Gauge. Zinc coating protects the surface from corrosion and weathering. The main disadvantage of galvanization is pointed below: Basically, it only protects the surface from corrosion for a short period of…
