With the ever-increasing demand of Steel for the visionary development around the globe, this reliable metal has been undergoing constant up-gradations and newer technologies and processes are being used for its manufacturing. With 1500 types of high-grade Steel available around the globe, there is immense growth seen to fulfill the different requirements Steel can cater to for development and infrastructure for the modern world.
Steel grading is one of the main characteristics used for selection of Steel for the different purposes. These grading systems are developed by National and International Standard organizations to ensure standard categorization and aid selection of Steel for their purpose.
Based On Structures
Fe 415 and Fe 500 are the TMT bars made for the common man, what a common dreams off is a home or a small scale commercial structure. What to choose to based is based on many different criteria and the prevailing geographical conditions. Beyond the the structures there is wriggle room both for owners and architects to choose between Fe 415 and Fe 500, looking at the cost and the timeline for the construction also comes into the picture.
Buying or building a house can be a daunting decision which carries a long-term financial implication. Owning a home has become relatively easy when compared with olden days, whether be it financial institutions who have made the dream of owning a home more affordable and governments have helped this cause by imposing stricter guidelines when it construction safety standards. The remaining problems are of longevity and the complexity of the structures.
TMT bars have changed how homeowners look at these problems, they as in TMT bars have greatly reduced the prices associated with purchasing and building homes, all while making homes safer and long-lasting, in short, TMT bars have made homes as a perfect investment. Before getting to know TMT bars in detail with respect to their types and grades, let’s just go through why TMT bars are better than iron rods by default. TMT bars have been accepted by civil engineers, contractors and even by governments. Below are some of the advantages of TMT bars over iron rods.
With the understanding of the impact the renewable sources, processes, and output have on the environment, more and more industries are driven to incorporate sustainability in all phases of their Manufacturing. Also, the governments around the globe are taking steps to establish safe, pollution-free, zero-waste production lines. It is important to maintain this at every step of the manufacturing process, from raw-materials to supply chain to contribute to these initiatives.
A building in only strong as its structure, this strength allows structures have an operation lifecycle of many years, right up to 200 years. This operational longevity may seem long when seeing structures which are old than 500 years. The difference here is with respect to cost, the time taken to build these structures and much more metrics related to the construction field. For example, the Taj Mahal took 20 years and 20,000 workers were needed to finish the structure, no doubt the structure is a testament of the structural creativity and the structural integrity, the reason why it still stands. What modern architecture has built these of structures to be made at less cost, safer, and reduced number of workers as well. One of the reasons for this is concrete and the concrete is bonded with TMT bars.
India is one of the most disaster-hit countries in the world, India is prone to earthquakes, hurricanes, thunderstorms and floods. Keeping these in minds, the design and constructions of structures have significantly changed in the recent times. Authorities have also laid down strict guidelines for building structures which can withstand many natural disasters, the construction and the real estate sector have followed this guideline to the letter.
In the previous blog, we saw how steel has managed to stay ahead of its competition, in this blog we will discuss in considerable detail about the ability of steel to be flexibility, weldability, and retain the strength. We will also look at some specific shapes of steel which are used in day to day construction projects as well as large-scale projects.
The global construction has chosen steel as their crux for every rising structure, this choice can be been seen from the Burj Khalifa to your own home. Steel has managed to gain the trust of world-famous architects t your neighbourhood friendly architect as well. Steel has managed to establish a presence in residential, commercial, and industrial structures as well. In this blog we will see how steel has managed to capture the trust of engineers and architects across the world, we will come to find some of the lesser-known facts about steel.
Closely looking at TMT bars one can see rings and lines, in this blog we will see what they and their uses. First things first, these rings and lines are called lugs and ribs, these are placed at regular intervals across the TMT bars of all grades. These lugs and ribs are there give a gripping effect in concrete structures, they give traction to concrete overlay on them. The angular placing on the surface gives the concrete a surface which it can cling on to.
While TMT stands for ‘Thermo Mechanical Treatment’, the name is basically their process of protection and HYSD means ‘High Yielding Strength Deformed’ which is their main characteristic when compared with other rods. HYSD bars can be further divided into Torsed / twisted steel (TOR Steel Bars) and Cold Twisted Deformed Steel Bars (CTD Steel Bars).
