Study of Factors Affecting Productivity of Pumped Concrete for
Integrated scheduling of ready-mixed concrete production
Dec 01, 2014 · This study presents an approach for improving the operations of production and delivery in ready-mixed concrete (RMC) plants. A network flow method is applied to formulate the integrated scheduling problem of ready-mixed concrete production and delivery with trucks and pumps, where the demands of construction sites are in certain time windows.
Aug 28, 2020 · Planning and cost estimation engineers face great challenges to estimate construction productivity rate (PR) of diaphragm walls (DWs). A specific guideline to predict the construction of DWs in underground station is still not available. In order to overcome these challenges, the criteria affecting PR for the construction of DWs should be hence defined and the factors that impact the

Batching, Mixing, Transporting, and Handling Concrete
affect the concrete properties. In addition, the sequence in which they are added to the mix can be important too. Ready Mixed Concrete. Ready mixed concrete is proportioned and mixed off the project site and is delivered to the construction area in a freshly mixed and unhardened state. It can be manufac-tured by any of the following methods
The environmental impact of concrete, its manufacture and applications, are complex.Some effects are harmful; others welcome. Many depend on circumstances. A major component of concrete is cement, which has its own environmental and social impacts and contributes largely to those of concrete.. The cement industry is one of the main producers of carbon dioxide, a potent greenhouse gas.

Simulation of Motion Behavior of Concrete in Pump Pipe by DEM
May 26, 2021 · 2.2.2. Rheological Test of Concrete and Lubricating Layer. At present, it was generally believed that the rheological properties of concrete and lubricating layer were the key parameters affecting the pumping pressure of concrete, and there was a good correlation between the pressure loss-flow rate of pumped concrete and the rheological parameters of the concrete .
In this process, concrete weight increases while its volume is reduced. This causes concrete shrinkage. Let's discuss some of the important factors affecting all types of shrinkages. Factors affecting the Shrinkage of Concrete. Let's discuss the major factors that need to …
The relative fluidity values depend on factors such as the chemical and mineralogical characteristics of the cement and its surface area. It is essential, therefore, that preliminary tests should be carried out, especially if a cement other than type I portland cement has to be used for the production of flowing concrete.
