Quality Control Laboratory for civil construction work

Quality Control Laboratories and civil construction work always go hand in hand and such laboratories are integral elements of all major construction project sites. A typical Quality Control Laboratory meant primarily for concreting, routine soil tests etc. in an Indian construction project site may have most or all of the following items in addition to other project specific items which could vary from project to project:

1. IS Sieve Sets: 80mm, 63mm, 50mm, 40mm, 31.5mm, 25mm, 20mm, 16mm, 12.5mm, 10mm, 6.3mm, 4.75mm, 2.36mm, 1.18mm, 600micron, 300micron, 150micron, 75micron & 125mm pan.

2. Balance: Digital balance of 10kg capacity with LC of 1gm & Balance with LC of 1mg. A physical balance with larger capacity also might often prove to be handy.
3. Standard
4. Electric oven.
5. Standard cube moulds – 150mm size.
6. Standard cube moulds – 70.60mm size.
7. Cube crushing machine with 2 dial gauges & brick plate attachment.

  2. Concrete Mix Design, Quality Control and Specification, Fourth Edition

    The nature of concrete is rapidly changing, and with it, there are rising concerns. Thoroughly revised and updated, this fourth edition of Concrete Mix Design, Quality Control and Specificationaddresses current industry practices that provide inadequate durability and fail to eliminate problems with underperforming new concrete and defective testing.

    Many specifications now require additional criteria in an attempt to improve durability or other properties. This book discusses the trend towards adding performance requirements to existing prescriptive specifications. It also explores the matter of prescription versus performance specification and especially the specification of non-strength-related performance such as durability.
