Dear Friends ,

Have you ever wondered on this issue ?

” What happens if we test a wet cube in a compressive strength testing machine?”

Not seen ?

Well, here is the link for you to watch the cubesbeing cast at site for testing :

Concrete cubes being cast 

After the 6 cubes are cast on the day of the concrete, 3 cubes are tested on the 7th day      [ Should not give a strength less than 65% of the characterstics strength ] and remaining 3 cubes are tested on the 28th day.[100% of characterstics strength].

Would you like to see how the concrete cubes are actually tested in the laboratory ?

Can we safely have a terrace garden ?

Dear Friends,

You must have seen a few terraces with beautiful gardens on it . Right ?

The plants, the pots and the soil at the terrace needs a careful planning at the time of design of the building. You must inform to the structural consultant about your future plans.

The terrace slab may not have been designed to withstand the excessive loads occuring due to the garden plants.
