  3. 3. IMPORTANCE OF CONTINUING EDUCATION FOR PROFESSIONALS WORKING IN CEMENT, CONCRETE AND CONSTRUCTION In the construction of buildings, roads and bridges, since last two decades, the earlier emphasis on ‘strength’ has shifted to ‘strength and durability’ of concrete. Sustainability of cement, concrete and construction industry has been the principal driving force in bringing about that change. Durable structures last longer in terms of their economic service life, thus leading to sustainability through reduction in the cost of repairs and reconstruction and associated conservation of materials and energy. The application of mineral admixtures (or supplementary cementitious materials), chemical admixtures and high performance cement and concrete make a significant contribution in that regard. The picture of Tampa Bay's Sunshine Skyway Bridge is an illustration, where fly ash concrete is used in severe exposure applications such as the decks and piers of the bridge [1]. The field is continuously developing and the professionals need to keep abreast with the latest. Most national standards permit the application of mineral admixtures like fly ash (FA), blast furnace slag (BFS) and silica fume in cement and concrete. The other admixtures, namely rice husk ash (RHA), metakaolin (MK) are also permitted by many, but relatively less applied. There are other which are in the developing stage, like ash generated from the combustion of corn cob, palm oil residue, sugarcane bagasse, wheat straw, wood waste, sewage sludge, municipal solid waste and calcined wastepaper sludge, electric arc furnace dust. Each admixture possesses distinctive characteristics, which separate it from the other. The application of mineral admixtures in cement and concrete requires deep understanding of how the materials aspects affect the characteristics of fresh concrete and its strength development as well as the durability vis-à-vis deleterious agents like chlorides, sulphates, carbon dioxide, alkalis. The choice of appropriate admixture is made on the basis of the specific requirement of the structure and the economy. The biomass based admixtures (example: rice husk ash), for example, have much importance for regions where they get generated in large quantity. The picture illustrates, the difference in the particle shape of FA and cement. The spherical shaped FA particles help improve the slump or reduce the water content of fresh concrete, besides reducing the permeability of hardened concrete to external deleterious agents [2]. The book written by Dr J D Bapat, tiltled “Mineral Admixtures in Cement and Concrete” (http://bit.ly/jdb_publisher), published by CRC Press, USA, covers aspects related to materials, hydration, strength & durability of cement & concrete, with mineral admixtures. Written for engineers, book focuses on making more workable and durable concrete using mineral admixtures. It looks at manufacturing and processing, physical characteristics, chemical and mineralogical composition, quality control and reported experiences. Provisions of national standards are examined. It encourages engineers to support more sustainable growth of industry. Readers are welcome to preview the book contents on Google and write a review.
  4. 4. ACI 116R-00 defines chemical admixture as material other than water, aggregates, hydraulic cement and fiber reinforcement, used as an ingredient of a cementitious mixture to modify its freshly mixed, setting or hardened properties and added to the batch before or during mixing. It is used to enhance the properties of concrete and mortar in plastic and hardened state. The choice of chemical admixture depends upon the modification required, like to (a) increase workability without increasing water content or decrease water content at same workability (b) retard or accelerate time of initial setting, (c) reduce or prevent shrinkage or create slight expansion, (d) modify rate or capacity for bleeding, reduce segregation, improve pumpability, (e) reduce rate of slump loss, heat evolution during early hardening, (f) accelerate rate of strength development at early ages, (g) increase strength (compressive, tensile or flexural) , increase durability or resistance to severe conditions of exposure, (h) control expansion caused by reaction of alkalies , with reactive aggregates, (i) improve impact and abrasion resistance, (j) inhibit corrosion of embedded metal, (k) produce colored concrete or mortar and so on. The use of chemical admixtures requires compatibility testing with the cement, to obtain desired results. The modern PE and PC based high range water reducing (HRWR) admixtures, or super plasticizers (SP), reduce water requirement of concrete by more than 30%, without the side effect of excessive retardation. The picture shows the steric hindrance effect created by HRWR. The addition of chemical admixture adds to the cost. The choice of chemical admixture and its dosage is decided on the basis of performance requirement and testing. The American Concrete Institute (ACI) defines High Performance Concrete (HPC) as: “concrete meeting special combinations of performance and uniformity (unit weight, air content, slump) requirements that cannot always be achieved routinely using conventional constituents and normal mixing, placing and curing practices”. In general, HPC possesses some combination of these properties: high workability and pumpability, high strength, low shrinkage, high durability in severe environment, reduced construction time and labor, better energy absorption (earthquake resistance). Application of HPC, in most cases, results in low life-cycle cost due better service life and reduced repair, retrofitting and reduced carbon footprint. The picture shows a slab made from pervious concrete. The two-day training course offered by Dr J D Bapat covers all the aspects given as above, as relevant to the professionals working in cement, concrete and construction industry. The participants get useful course material, view videos and participate in group discussion to share real life problems. The course offers flexibility in terms of the contents and duration and can be organized in Pune (India) or other convenient place in India or other country. So far, the course has been successfully organized jointly with professional organisations in India and other countries.
