  • 3. WHAT IS MATERIAL?Material is key factor fM t i l i k f t of any product. d tBasically material can bB i ll t i l be d fi d as an definedingredients which are use to form a particularproduct.The material which are used in constructionwork are called construction materials orbuilding materials. e.g. Stone, Brick, Aggregate, Cement,Mortar, Concrete, Lime, Metal, Glass, Paint,Timber etc etc. 3

  • 6. ON THE BASES OF TYPES OR WORK OF MATERIALBinding materials e.g.: Cement, Lime, Mortar etc.Protective materials e.g.: P i t V Paints, Varnishes, Pl t i etc. i h Plastering tSolidS lid materials t i l e.g.: Bricks, Timber, Aggregate etc.
  • 7. ON THE BASES OF AVAILIBILITY OF MATERIALNaturally available materials e.g.: Stone, Sand, Clay etc.Artificial or Industrial or Manmade materials e.g.: P i t C Paints, Cement, B i k Gl t Brick, Glass etc. t
  • 8. ON THE BASES OF TIME PASSESTraditional materials e.g.: Stone, Brick, Timber etc.Alternative materials e.g.: e g : Concrete block Glass Fiber etc block, Glass, etc.Composite materials e.g.: RCC, FRC etc.Smart materials e.g.: Dampers, Fuse, C.P.U. etc. e g : Dampers Fuse C P U etc

  • 10. Requirements of Building Materials Service Fabrication Economic EnvironmentalRequirements Requirements Requirements Requirements
  • 11. SERVICE REQUIREMNTSMaterial should satisfy its own properties like size size,shape, colour, strength, stiffness, durability,chemical composition, corrosion resistance etc.Material should easy to handle.Material should easily available in nearby area area.
  • 12. FABRICATION REQUIREMNTSFabrication process refer to how a material iscreated, processed and assemble.Material should easily fabricated as perrequirements. q e.g.: Metal should be easily casted, forged, machined, rolled and cut.
  • 13. ECONOMIC REQUIREMNTSMaterial should be of good qualityIts initial cost, transportation cost andmaintenance cost should be affordable.
  • 14. ENVIRONMENTAL REQUIREMNTSMaterial should create minimum pollution.It should not react with chemical or anysubstance presence in environment environment.It should b able t b h ld be bl to bear weathering affects. th i ff t

  • 17. TYPE OF STRUCTURES Type of Structure Load Framed Combined Bearing B i Structure StructureStructure
  • 18. LOAD BEARING STRUCTUREFoundation is constructed beneath the walls walls.Load is transmit by load bearing wall to sub-soilthrough its foundation.There is no column is constructed.Wall thickness: 20,30, or 40 cm.Maximum 3 storey are permitted.M i t itt dIt is adopted where soil strata is hard at shallow depth.With the increases in no. of floors, wall thickness isdecreases.
  • 19. FRAME STRUCTUREMain structural members are Beams & Columns Columns.Beams support the wall & slab.Foundation is constructed beneath the columns onlynot beneath the walls.Its self weight is less in comparison to load bearingstructure.structureIt is easy to construct.
  • 20. COMPOSITE STRUCTUREColumns as well as load bearing masonry walls areprovided.Load is transmitted to sub-soil by both the members.It is proffered for construction of floors which has tocover large area by slabs like exhibition hall, godowns,public buildings etc etc.
