Transportation of concrete is an important activity in the production of concrete. The time taken in transit should be a design parameter as it depends on the initial setting time as well as the requirement of workability at the destination. Transit mixer is one of the most popular equipment for transporting concrete over a long distance.
Boom Pump is a powerful machine used to place concrete at high elevations conventional methods cannot reach. The pump truck has a hopper on the back that pushes the concrete through pipe sections along an articulated boom that can reach over 40 meters. Concrete pump is a machine which is used for transferring liquid concrete by pumping to high buildings.
Material management is a process for planning, executing and controlling field and office activities in construction. Concrete is a composite material consisting of a binder, which is typically cement, rough and fine aggregates, which are usually stone, sand and water. These comprise the constituent materials of concrete.
A cement is a binder, a substance used for construction that sets, hardens, and adheres to other materials to bind them together. Cement mixed with fine aggregate produces mortar for masonry, or with sand and gravel, produces concrete. Concrete is the most widely used material in existence and is only behind water as the planet's most-consumed resource.
