  • Cemex: The Globalization Of The Cement Industry

    CEMEX’s Globalization benefits and Cross-border activities adding value to Cement industry CEMEX operates in the ‘not so export friendly’ globally concentrated cement industry, so, global expansion was an obvious choice for cement industry seeking geographic diversification. Globalization offered CEMEX and other Cement manufactures to enjoy various benefits such as i) empire building and growth via stabilized revenues, also benefiting from the arbitrage prices and economies of scale ii) export tariffs reduction and complete reduction in import tariffs in case of localized facilities iii)localization of cement production and distribution facilities closer to point of use changed the ‘global cement industry game’ with lower shipping costs, also…

  • Shear Strength Experiment Analysis

    Result 4.1 Experimental Analysis The experimental work is carried out to evaluate the shear strength of steel fiber reinforced concrete deep beams without stirrups. For this 18 beams are cast. The beams are tested under two-point loading as per IS after 28 days curing. Fiber fraction is varied as 0%, 1.5% and 3%. The shear span-to-depth ratio (a/d ratio) for beams is kept as 0.60 for case-I and 0.74 for case-II. The cube compressive strength is estimated. The experimental results are…

  • Specific Gravity Bottle Essay

    of adequate proportion of cement, water and aggregate. Hardening (or) strength of this material is obtained by the chemical action between water and cement. As the time increases the stronger it grows (i.e strength of concrete is directly proportion to its age).The durability, strength, versatility and other characteristics of concrete depends upon the properties and proportion of the gradients in the mix. Strength of concrete is its resistance to rupture on application of load. It is measured…

  • V-Funnel Test Essay

    the property of fresh concrete to pass through congested reinforcement assemblies or bars. It depends on the aggregate size used. L-box test is performed to find the pass ability of fresh concrete. 4. Segregation resistance: It is property of concrete for proper maintaining constant content of all components in the mix during transportation or placing. There are two types of segregation which may occur: 1. External Seggregation: External segregation occurs during transport or placing…

  • The Similarities And Differences Of Terrazzo, Composites, And Composites

    A sand-cushioned system is cement based and is not bonded to the slab. It is wire-reinforced and is placed over a sand layer. A bonded system is cement based and is bonded to the slab. It is placed on the slab with a terrazzo topping. A polyacrylate system is cement-based, but modified with additives, and is bonded indirectly to the slab. The terrazzo is placed on top of a fixed membrane. An epoxy system has a resin matrix and bonds indirectly to the slab. A membrane is adhered to the slab upon…

  • The Workability And Compressive Strength Analysis Of Sawdust Ash (SDA)

    Abstract: The study investigated the workability, and compressive strength properties of the concrete produced by replac-ing 5%, 10% and 15% by weight of ordinary Portland cement with Sawdust Ash (SDA). Slump test was carried out on the fresh concrete and compressive strength test on hardened concrete. The concrete cubes were tested at the ages of 3, 7, 14 & 28 days. The results showed that Sawdust Ash is good with use in cement. The slump decreased as the Sawdust Ash content increased…

  • Geopolymer Concrete Lab Report

    3. MIX DESIGN 3.1 Design of Geopolymer Concrete Mixtures: In the mix design of geopolymer concrete the role and the influence of aggregates are considered to be the same as in the case of Portland cement concrete. The mass of combined aggregates may be taken to be between 75% and 80% of the mass of geopolymer concrete. Coarse and fine aggregate together were taken as 77% of entire mixture by mass. Fine aggregate was taken 30% of total aggregate. Fly ash and alkaline liquids was taken 23% of…

  • Summary Of Hydroxyapatite (HA)

    Hydroxyapatite (HA) has been studied for their excellent performances which are suitable for use in bone defects or regeneration of bone. Hydroxyapatite (HA) has poor mechanical properties which make it limited used in a load bearing area. In this case, sodium alginate (SA) was used to be mixed with hydroxyapatite (HA) by using precipitation method to increase the mechanical and physical properties. The mixing of hydroxyapatite/sodium alginate effectively increases the densification and hardness…
