Abstract

Ready mix concrete industry in India is still in its infancy but it is an emerging sector. Ready-mix concrete (RMC) is a ready-to-use material, with predetermined mixture of cement, sand, aggregates and water. Use of Ready mixed Concrete has increased considerably in the last few years. Today’s high rise structures demands smaller column sizes, faster construction, prompting use of high grade Ready Mix concrete. Use of Ready Mixed concrete was expected to give better control on the quality of concrete as compared with the site mixed concrete. The RMC is subject to varying site conditions like compaction, curing, workability etc. directly affecting the in-situ strength. Information obtained from many sites using ready mixed concrete indicates many instances where the strength of concrete obtained is lower than that specified. Ready mixed concrete (RMC) is an essential material in contemporary construction and engineering projects.
