“Concrete is the second most consumed product on
earth, after water.”
Concrete makes a significant contribution to the triple bottom line - environmental, social and
economic – of sustainable development. Concrete is a versatile construction material and because of
its qualities it is used in building sky scrapers, bridges, dams, tunnels, sewage systems, airports,
harbors, high ways and more.
Concrete is one of the biggest discoveries in the field of civil engineering which almost revolutionised the world, as now used in almost every engineering structure, from foundation to the roof because of its various properties like workability ,strength ,plasticity etc.
But it requires some basic skills to properly design your concrete mix according to your structure
DO U HAVE THOSE SKILLS TO SHOW THE WORLD THAT YOUR CONCRETE MIX IS BEST SUITED FOR A STRUCTURE
So, get ready because in this technozion we are gonna provide you a platform where u can come up with your own concrete mix satisfying the constraints & ultimately checking their strength by casting them into cubes
Design a concrete mix for a particular grade of concrete(decided on spot) which have best slump value, best compaction factor value & desired strength.
It’s an aptitude test which assesses your passion towards civil engineering and general idea of concrete technology .qualified people will make their way to second round.
Design a suitable mix proportion for the desired strength. Strength (grade of concrete) will be announced on the spot. You will be supplied with relevant codes. Qualified people will make their way to third round.
Mould a suitable concrete cube which can give better slump value, compaction factor value and the desired strength as announced in Round-2.
Q1 What kind of questions will be asked in the aptitude test?
Ans: It will be related to concrete technology(literally basic) & some facts regarding civil engineering wonders in the world
Q2 How long will be the event?
Ans: Aptitude round & designing round will be done on 1st day, casting can be done on 2nd day in morning & results will be declared on the last day
