Applications of Concrete
Concrete has been used for construction since ancient times. Modern day concrete application include dams, bridges, swimming pools, homes, streets, patios, basements, balustrades, plain cement tiles, mosaic tiles, pavement blocks, kerbs, lamp-posts, drain covers, benches and so on….
Ready Mixed concrete is durable and hard wearing and is used for variety of applications owing to its crack-resistance and durability. Situ concrete is cast in place, on site. Precast concrete finds application in concrete curtain walls, exterior cladding and structural walls, as it monolithic and can be easily used for two-way structural systems. It is also adjustable to post tensioning and easily adapts to any building shape.
Cast-in-place concrete is an unhardened state, like ready-mix, and is placed in moulds. Ready mixed concrete is proportioned and mixed off the project site. It finds application in foundations and slabs-on-ground, walls, beams, columns, floors, roofs, bridges, pavements, and other infrastructure.
Controlled-density fill is used as structural fill, foundation pillar, pavement base an pipe bedding. It is also known as flowable mortar.
The life expectancy of concrete flooring materials is much more than other flooring material. It is used to enhance concrete applications and to add colour and texture to interiors, driveways, pathways and patios
Fiber cement is made using a mixture of sand, cellulose fibers and cement. It has a wood-like appearance, is durable and used for decorative shapes and trim applications.
Vegetative roofs are used in residential societies, office buildings, hospitals, schools, recreational facilities, shopping centers and airports.
Concrete is used to provide prolonged building benefits by functioning as thermal mass, acoustical barrier and durable structure
It is a Portland cement concrete overlay on existing asphalt concrete pavement and used in airport pavements, highways, secondary roads, and other pavements.
Over the years, concrete has established itself as a sturdy building material used for different applications. The inherent benefits of using concrete as a construction material are durability, fire-resistance, low maintenance, energy efficiency and environmental friendliness. Owing its generic qualities, it is not surprising that concrete is used more than any other man-made material on earth.
