Repairs and Rehabilitation of Concrete Structures (Dept Elec-III) (2180607)  

List of Practicals

Sr. Practical Title
1
To perform a non-destructive and semi-destructive testing on the cast specimens of the beams using set up of Rebound hammer, UPSV, Core drilling etc. and there by prepare a report on the interpretation of the strength i.e quality of concrete based on NDT test results.
2
Take up Conditional Assessment of 5 different structures including Residential, Commercial, Industrial, and Government buildings, Private structures (old & new construction both). Prepare Rapid visual inspection data sheets of the same
3
Prepare a report on the buildings surveyed, to highlight all the defects/deterioration seen through proper resolution photographs. The report must clearly indicate the distress – its source and symptoms
4
To perform experiment to evaluate the Compatibility between the substrate material concrete and any repair material. (For instance comparing the Bond strength of Polymer modified mortar and Conventional Mortar with Concrete).
5
Experiment investigation to carry out the efficacy of repair material/ technique in enhancing the strength of concrete beam post cracking. ( For instance, Cast a RCC beam, simulate cracking and then filling the crack with repair material and check the post-repair strength results).

Major Equipment
Compression Testing Machine, Concrete Mixture, NDT equipments like USPV, Rebound Hammer, Corrosion Meter, Rebar Locator, Engineer’s inspection Kit.
