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.
Building collapsing, explosions, all seems good and spectacular in movies, right? but not so in real life. Part-I of this blog explained about the dangers and consequences involved in collapsing of the building. The blog also described the reasons for various building collapse which were lack of maintenance and inefficient planning and design. Here we solely focus on the inefficiency and practices of the people involved in the construction process with a recent example.
Buildings collapsing is not something enjoyable to view and experience. The impacts created from these disasters create great physical and mental trauma that takes a big toll on our life. It gives us a lot to think about and improve but still, the event continues in different areas all over India. There are many instances where different cases on building collapses have been reported. The sad thing is that the responsible officials never learn or do anything effective even after repeated patterns of the same event.
Steelmaking is one of the most important processes in the industrial sector all over the world. Steelmaking results in the production of steel from iron ores, which is used for a variety of purposes ranging from construction of roads, railways, infrastructures, automobiles and buildings. Even the most innovated TMT reinforced steel bars like the Fe 415, Fe 500 etc are developed from the steelmaking process. The demands for steel are always increasing to the point that we cannot imagine a world without steel.
A building structure is incomplete without the right set of resources. There are many different resources involved in the construction of a building but the most important resource is the reinforced steel bar. The types of reinforced steel bar grades are Fe 415, Fe 500, Fe 550, Fe 600. The manufacture of steel begins with the steel making process, in which pig iron is purified and alloyed to make ingots.
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.
