Summer season is all over us. The temperatures are soaring high all across India, marking the arrival of the summer season in full force. The temperature has crossed 40°C in many areas. Also similar to the rising temperature, another thing that is also rising is the construction of buildings. As we know excessive heat is not good for the people involved in the construction, well it is the same case for the buildings. More specifically, the setting of concrete.
Concrete is the most vital material in the construction of buildings. There is no need for any sort of familiarization for us. It is right around us, buildings, roads, bridges, etc, all these structures are made with concrete. It is impossible to imagine a structure without concrete. The use of concrete has a long way back since ancient times. The arrival of concrete drastically changed the course of architecture in the world.
Concrete and steel are the two most vital components for the construction of a building. Concrete is known for its impressive compressive strength but it lacks the tensile strength. This tensile strength is provided by using reinforced steel bars. So both these components are needed for the construction. However, with the rise of technologies, different variants of steel, concrete etc have been introduced. One such material is Prestressed Concrete.
The last blog described the universal problem affecting the RCC which is corrosion / rusting and what are the causes of corrosion. In order for a Reinforced structure to have corrosion, the presence of these two components is needed which is moisture and air. Usually, corrosion starts out slowly and results in severe damages which in turn affects the structural integrity of the building.
Thermo Mechanically treated steel bars created the current standard of reinforcement. Their excellent tensile strength and ductility make them ideal and preferred for construction of building structures. Building structures are always susceptible to environmental changes. No building will ever be the same once the environmental changes kick in. Out of all the changes, the most serious and devastating is corrosion.
A home is dream of the common man, the common man wants a personal space where he or she unwind and relax without a care in the world. So, the common man wants a home which confines to his sense of design, safety and longevity. To meet the expectations and demands of the ever more demanding common man, the construction sector has always been in the business of reassuring people about the quality and safety of their products. Below are some of the individual raw materials which have changed the landscape of the real estate sector india.
