The contractor may however be required to demonstrate to the Engineer-in-charge, if so called for by him, that the diameter of the bore hole for its full length is not less than the nominal diameter specified and this may be done by lowering a guide ring having a diameter equal to the nominal diameter of the pile into the bore hole before concreting the pile or lowering the reinforcement cage.(b)(c)(d)(e)3.Identification of Pile : A plan showing clearly the designation of all piles by identification system shall be filled with the Engineer-in-charge before installation of piles is started, if so desired by the Engineer-in-charge.4.Piling Sequence : The piles shall be installed in such a sequence that the carrying capacity of previously installed piles is not reduced or there is no appreciable upheaval of ground causing unusual soil resistance to rest of the pile driving or the soil is not flowing laterally during driving operation. The Engineer-in-charge shall decide on the sequence of the groups of piles that the contractor shall undertak for construction and the contractor shall have to follow this sequence.4.0Workmanship &amp; Construction of Piles :93(a)General : (1) Piles shall be constructed by acceptable method which leaves their strength unimpaired and which develops and retains the required bearing resistance. Equipment and the method of construction of the pile shall be such that the pile is installed in its proper position alignment and truly vertical. Piles construction shall be carried out by using standard bored piling process. Piles shall be cased with mild steel liner of required thickness which shall be provided up to depth shown on the detailed working drawing supplied by the Engineer-in-charge. For uncased piling for boring beyond the depth of M. S. casing shall be done using bentonite slurry to prevent the subsoil from caving. This shall be of approved quality and standards as prescribed under detailed specification for pile foundation work given in the document. The boring shall start from the level as indicated in the drawings. Further, for all types of bored piles including the use of open-end casing, the tenderer shall submit, in view of sub-soil water being present in the bore hole, particulars of concrete placement method so as to reduce to a minimum, the contact of fresh concrete with ground water. It is imperative that the bore hole shall exclude any subsoil material before placement of reinforcement and concrete inside the casing or bore hole. Details of the concrete placing equipment and/or any other process intended to be used by the tenderer for such conditions, shall be fully described. The reinforcements of the pile should project out, above the top level of the pile by a minimum length of 600 mm or as specified, to be later or bent and embedded in the pile cap concrete. Concrete shall be placed and compacted at least up to 300 MM above the cut-off level and the ground level shall be filled up with sand so that the next pile does not move out of place during construction. To construct the pile cap, the ground will be excavated to expose the top portion of the piles, which will be dismantled neatly up to the cutoff level, removing all cracked, loose and unsound concrete. The top surfaces of the piles will be kept rough and treated by keeping wet and application of near cement coat, before concreting of pile cap to ensure bond with the pile cap concrete in which they will be ultimately embedded. In case, the casing is directed to be removed, care shall be taken to ensure that there is no gap left in the concrete of the pile and that the reinforcement are not displaced.(2)(3)(4)(5)(6)(7)(8)5.0Quality control :94The contractor shall maintain quality control for all items of work including materials and every stage as may be directed by the Engineer, to ensure compliance with contract specifications and shall maintain and submit to the Engineer, records of the same. The quality control requirements stipulated under the specifications for &quot;Concrete Reinforced and Plain&quot; will apply wherever relevant. In addition, the requirements will include but not be limited to the following: (a) (b) Location &amp; Plumb Driving : Control survey for accuracy in plan and check for verticality. : Correlation of weight of hammer, length of strokes, number of strokes per minute and rate of penetration. : Preventation of any cave-in of subsoil. : Check inside casing or boring as the case may be, rein-forcement cage, concrete mix, placing, consolidation. : Taking core for ascertaining homogeneous and compactness of concrete. : As prescribed under these documents if any.(c) (d)Boring Casting of piles(e) (f) 6.0 (a)Inspection of pile Load tests General :Concrete in Piles : This shall conform to the specifications for cement concrete- plain and reinforced as per relevant IS codes to the extent it has been referred to or applicable for this purpose. The concrete shall be as per design mix specified &amp; of approved quality. The entire depth of the pile shall be concreted in one operation without stoppage. All concreting operation for piles shall be carried out during day time only. Exposed portions of piles shall be cured for at least 10 days from the date of casting. When installing the piles in groups, sufficient time shall be allowed for freshly poured concrete in pile to set before installing adjacent piles. The Engineer-in-consultation with the contractor shall determine the installation sequence and time schedule to ensure that freshly concreted piles are not damaged due to installation of adjacent piles. (b) Materials : Unless otherwise called for on the drawings or in the bills of quantities, the concrete shall be of grade M35 and shall have a cement content not less than 380 Kg/Cu.m. for concrete placed in the dry and 418 Kg/M3 for concrete placed under water by tremie method. Concrete for piles in alkali soils / alkaline waters shall have a minimum cement content of 390 Kg/Cu.m. and in this case sulphate resistance cement as may be directed by the Engineer may be used. Cement shall be ordinary port land cement conforming to I.S. : 269 unless specified otherwise. Maximum size of aggregate shall be 20 mm. Volume check :95(c)Concreting shall start as soon as possible after driving is closed and pile tube or completion of boring. Concrete shall be so placed as to fill the entire volume of the hole without segregation and formation of voids caused by faulty consolidation or entrapped air. The volume of concrete placed shall be observed in the initially cast piles and the average figure obtained shall be used to check whether there is undue deviation in concrete consumption and if so the same shall be brought to the notice of the Engineer without further work on piling. (d) Consistency : Where the concrete is cast in place in an open-end tube, its consistency shall be suitable to the method of compaction employed in the formation of piles. If necessary concrete shall be as dry as possible to minimize shrinkage and the possibility of cement being washed down by flow is withdrawn. plasticising agents may be used by the contractor to improve the workability but the Engineer may be furnished with proof that the proposed plasticising agent has no adverse effects on the hardened concrete of reinforcement. Care shall be taken against segregation of concrete while passing through the reinforcement cage, and against inflow of soil and water during withdrawal of the tube, if such method is adopted by maintaining sufficient head of concrete inside the tube. The extraction of casing shall not cause any shearing or necking of the poured concrete thereby reducing the capacity of the piles. If it becomes necessary to place concrete through water, this should be done with special equipment and necessary precaution in conforming with contractor's specification as may be got approved by the Engineer. As per Clause 6.3.4 of IS 2911 (Part I /sec 2) slump of concrete shall range between 100 to 180 mm. depending on the manner of concreting. (e) Testing : At least one test shall be made for every 15 m3 of concrete and not less than six cubes shall be cast on each day of concreting of piles. Three of the six cubes constituting one test shall be tested on the 7th day from casting the cubes and the remaining three cubes shall be tested on the 28th day after casing. Tests of all cubes shall be carried out in presence of Engineer-incharge or his representative. (f) Acceptance7.0The Engineer reserves the right to reject any pile of deficient concrete strength. Such rejected piles shall be replaced by the contractor at his own cost who shall also bear the additional cost of widening the pile cap resulting from the grouping if the piles as result of replacement of piles. The Engineer also reserve the right to order a change in the mix design and/or water cement ratio to obtain the specified strength of workability if so considered necessary during execution. Reinforcement in Piles96TMT Fe ­ 415 reinforcement conforming to IS : 432 , IS : 1139 or IS : 1786 grade suitable for cement concrete as per IS specifications for reinforcement concrete for general building work shall be applicable for this specification to the extent it has been referred to or acceptable. Reinforcement used in cast in situ piles shall be made up into cages sufficiently well wired or span welded to withstand handling without damage. The bars shall be so spaced as not to offer obstruction in placing concrete. Care shall be taken to preserve correct cover and alignment of reinforcement throughout the operation of placing the concrete. Any distortion or displacement of reinforcement during the compaction of concrete or while extracting the tube, shall be avoided. Joints in longitudinal reinforcement bars, if unavoidable, shall be made by lapping and the laps shall be tack welded to prevent distortions of the reinforcement cage. The lap length of longitudinal bars beyond the pile cut-off level shall be as shown on the drawings. Unless otherwise specified in the drawings, the lateral reinforcement shall consist of a helix made from 8 mm. dia. bars at a pitch of 150 mm. through out the length of the reinforcement cage. Concrete cover over all reinforcement including lateral helical reinforcement shall be 50 mm. unless otherwise specified or shown on the drawings. Care shall be taken to preserve the correct cover and alignment of reinforcement free from any twist, throughout the whole operation of placing the reinforcement in the bore hole and placing the concrete. 8.0 Dowels : The contractor shall provide necessary dowels is as directed by the Engineer if so required. 1. Inspection For cast in situ, bored, piles, the contractor shall get the bore hole inspected by the Engineer in charge for proper plumb, location, compaction of founding surface, pressure of water and other requisites. The diameter of the hole may also be checked in the case of bentonite slurry bored pile by lowering a guide ring through the depth of the hole. The depth of the bore hole shall be measured by means of a chain to which a plumb bob weighing not less than 250 gm. Is attached. The contractor shall provide all the equipment required for the above inspection and he shall co-ordinate this work with the Engineer in charge. Concreting shall start only after the Engineer has approved the bore hole. All facilities, equipment and labor required for inspection by the Engineer mentioned above shall be provided by the Contractor promptly and free of cost.972.Record of Installation of Piles : A joint record shall be maintained by the contractor in a Performa approved by the Engineer, of the entire penetration for every pile and the behavior of such pile during its entire process of construction as per IS 2711 (part I) Section 2. These records shall be submitted to the Engineer-in-charge regularly as the job progresses. Any sudden change in the rate of penetration which can not be ascribed to the nature of the ground or any deviation from the designed location, alignment or load carrying capacity of any pile or any upheaval or subsidence noticed on any pile driven under this contract or already existing, during construction of other piles, shall be promptly reported to the Engineer-in-charge and adequate corrective measures shall be taken free of any charge as may be decided by the Engineer-in-charge. The records of such additional borings or other subsurface information that were obtained during the process of installation shall also be filed with the Engineer in charge.3.Test Pile The contractor may have to construct test pile if so directed by the Engineer in charge, and ascertain the load carrying capacity by test, as may be required by the Engineerin-charge, before he starts systematic piling operation at locations indicated. For this purpose, the pile construction process shall be the same as in usual piling process to be followed on this job. No extra cost shall be payable for test pile so ordered.4.Pile capacity, quality and tolerances (a) Working load on piles General specifications of pile foundations and its details are given in the tender for general information. The capacity of the piles in place shall be verified by conducting &quot;Routine Load Tests&quot; on working pile as describe hereinafter. For bored piles, the characteristics, thickness and inclination of the subsoil strata under laying the pile points shall be taken into account for estimating the extent of settlement of the pile due to consolidation of the soil below, while evaluating the allowable load on pile. The contractor shall submit his findings on the allowable carrying capacity of a single pile from the load test. This shall then be reviewed by the Engineer and the allowable carrying capacity of each pile and group piles shall be decided by him in consultation with the contractor. The decision of the Engineer in charge regarding the allowable load on the piles shall be final. The layout and number of piles and the size and details of the pile caps may have to be revised if the decided allowable loads on each single pile in a group differ from the above value and the contractor shall have to do the work according to the revised design and drawings at no extra cost or expenses to the client.98If the load test results indicate that the piles, already constructed are deficient in load carrying capacity, such deficiencies shall be made good by the contractor in the manner as may be approved by the Engineer, at no extra cost to the client. (b) Quality : The contractors shall guarantee the full cross section of the pile for its entire length and also guarantee against the occurrence of necking or wasting, bulging, spilling of pile sheaft concrete and similar defects which will impair the strength and durability of the pile. (c) Tolerances : The pile shall be installed truly vertically as per the detailed design required within the following permissible tolerances. The position of the pile at the level of the bottom of the pile cap shall not very more than 75 mm in any direction from the positions specified in the drawings. The alignment shall not vary by more than 2% (about 1 degree) from the vertical axis or the specified batter. The above two allowances, however, shall not be cumulative. (d) Defective Piles Piles that are defective or where the deviation in alignment of the tube or base is more than that tolerance specified, shall be pulled out or left in place as per the directions of the Engineer in charge. Additional pile shall be driven to replace them and/or the pile cap shall be redesigned and built at no extra cost to the client. In case the pile / casing can not be removed. It shall be cut as may be directed by the Engineer in charge. Voids resulting from rejected borings or extraction of the pile or casing shall be filled with gravel or sand unless other piles are installed in such voids. The contractor shall also not be paid for any expenses incurred by him, in extracting and rejected pile / casing and refilling if so required. 5. Idle period The phasing of construction and movement of plant shall be done as may be directed by the Engineer. The phasing may involve some extra movement of the plant or some idle period during test pile operation etc., but the contractor will not be entitled for any claim due to this reason and all rates quoted by him shall include the same. However, during the testing of piles and other holdups, pile driving operation may be allowed on other piles, if considered acceptable and if so decided by the Engineer in charge with a view to minimise idle time.

The rate for such item shall be decided as may be matually agreed upon with the Engineer in charge.1024.Lateral Load Test (i) Procedure for Load Test (a) This test shall be conducted as far as possible at the cut off level of the piles. In case of pile groups the test shall be conducted after providing caps such that the required conditions of actual use fulfilled. The test may be conducted by introducing a hydraulic jack, with gauge between two piles or pile groups under test or the reaction may be suitably obtained otherwise these tests may also be done by applying lateral pull, by a suitable set up. If it is conducted by jack located between two piles or groups, the full load imposed by the jack shall be taken as the lateral resistance of each pile or group. The loading should be applied in increments of about 20% of the estimated safe load. After applying each increment of load, the next increment of load shall be applied after the rate of settlement of mm. in sandy soil and 0.02 mm. per hour in clayey soil or two hours time whichever is earlier. Displacements shall be measured by using at least two dial gauges spaced at 30 cm. and kept horizontally one above the other on each pile. Where it is not possible to locate one of the dial gauges in the line of jack axis, then the two dial gauges may be kept at a distance of 30 cm. at a suitable location from similar triangles.(b)(c)(d)(ii)Acceptance Criteria The safe lateral load on a pile shall be taken as the least of the following: (a) (b) (c) Fifty percent of the final load at which total displacement increases to 12 mm.

The safe load shall be taken as the least of the following : (a) (b) One half the load at which the displacement is 12 mm. or corresponding to a specified displacement. One half the load at which the load displacement curve shows a clear break.Routine test load shall be carried out to 1.5 time the allowable load, pull out load in the pile or the load corresponding to 12 mm. pull whichever is earlier. (iii) Defective Piles : In case it is observed that the piles cast are not sound and there is doubt about compactness of concrete, reduction in diameter, exposure of steel, undesirable information or any other flaws which the Engineer in charge considered improper, the contractor shall modify or improve his method of construction and ensure by casting and constructing further piles at his own cost before he is permitted to go ahead with the construction. 6. Pile cut off, Excavation &amp; clean up : (i) Pile cut off (a) All piles shall be concreted to a level 150 mm. to 450 mm. above the specified pile cut off elevation which shall be 8 cm. above the bottom of the pile cap.

The proportions for ingredients chosen shall be such that concrete has adequate workability for condition prevailing on the work in question, and can be properly compacted with the means available. Except where it can be shown to the satisfaction of the Engineer-incharge that supply of properly graded aggregate of uniform quality can be maintained till the completion of work, grading of aggregate should be controlled by obtaining the coarse aggregate in different sizes and blending them in the right proportions as required. Different sizes, however, shall be stacked in separate stock piles. Required quantity of material shall be stock piled several hours, preferably a day, before use. Grading of coarse and fine aggregate shall be checked as frequently as possible, frequency for a given job being determined by the Engineer-in-charge to ensure that the suppliers are maintaining the uniform grading as approved for samples used in the preliminary tests. In proportioning the quantity of both cement and aggregate shall determined by weight. Water shall either be measured by volume in calibrated tanks or weighted. All measuring equipment's shall be maintained in a clean, and serviceable condition. Their accuracy shall be periodically checked. It is most important to keep the specified water ­ cement ratio constant and at its correct value. To this end, moisture content in both fine and coarse aggregates shall be determined by the Engineer-in-charge accordingly to the weather conditions. The amount of mixing water shall then be adjusted to compensate for variations in the moisture content. For the determination of moisture content in the aggregates IS: 2386 (Part III) shall be refereed to. Suitable adjustments shall also be made in the weights of aggregates to allow for the variation in their moisture content. The minimum cement content and water cement ratio shall be as specified below : Minimum cement content and maximum water cement ratio and minimum grade of concrete.

Example For an average grading of fine aggregate (that is zone II or IS 303-1963) the proportions shall be 1:1 ½; 1:2 and 1:3, for maximum size of aggregates 10 mm, 20 mm and 40 mm respectively. Note No. 3 :- A mix leaner than M 100 (1:3:6) may be used for non-structural parts if specified on the drawing or provided in the Contract. In such case grading of aggregates shall be as specified in the Contract or on the drawings. Other requirements for mixing, placing and curing shall be the same as specified in this section.(ii)Quantity of Water :119The quantity of water shall be just sufficient to produce a dense concrete of required workability and strength for the job. An accurate and strict control shall be kept on the quantity of mixing water. In the case of reinforced concrete work, workability shall be such that the concrete surrounds and properly grips all reinforcements. The degree of consistency, which shall depend upon the nature of work and methods of vibration of concrete, shall be determined by regular slump tests. Following slump shall be adopted for different types of works. Sr. No. (i) Type of work Where vibrators are used 10 mm to 25 mm Slumps Where vibrators are not used 80 mm(ii) (iii)Mass concrete in RCC foundations, footings and retaining walls. Beams, slabs and columns reinforced Thin RCC Section or section with congested steel25 mm to 40 mm 40 mm to 50 mm100 mm to 20mm 125 mm to 150mmNote :- With use of ordinary concrete, the slump requirement specified above would not be applicable. Mixing of Concrete : For all work, concrete shall be mixed in a mechanical mixer which along with other accessories shall be kept in first class working condition and so maintained throughout the construction. Mixing shall be continued till materials are uniformly distributed and uniform colour of the entire mass is obtained and each individual particle of the coarse aggregate show complete coating of mortar containing its proportionate amount of cement. In no case shall the mixing be done for less than 2 minutes after all ingredients have been put into the mixer. In hand mixing quantity of cement shall be increased by 10 percent above that specified but the cost of increased cement quantity shall be borne by the contractor. Hand mixing will be permitted only under exceptional conditions and the contractor must take the permission of the Engineer-incharge in advance. Mixers which have been out of use for more than 30 minutes shall be thoroughly cleaned before putting in a new batch. Unless otherwise agreed to by the Engineer-in-charge, the first batch of concrete from the mixer shall contain only two thirds of the normal quantity of coarse120aggregate. Mixing plant shall be thoroughly cleaned before changing from one type of cement to another. Transport, Placing and Compaction of Concrete : The method of transporting and placing concrete shall be got approved from the Engineer-in-charge. Concrete shall be so transported and placed that no contamination, segregation or loss of its constituent materials takes place. All form work and reinforcement contained on form work shall be cleaned and made free from standing water or dust immediately before placing of concrete. No concrete shall be placed in any part of the structure until the approval of the Engineer-in-charge has been obtained in writing. If concreting is not started within 24 hours of the approval being given, it shall have to be obtained again from the Engineer-in-charge. Concreting then shall proceed continuously over the area between construction joints. Fresh concrete shall not be placed against concrete, which has been in position for more than 30 minutes unless it is ensured that the re-vibration limit of the earlier concrete is not crossed or a proper construction joint is formed. Concrete when deposited shall have a temperature of not less than 4.5 degree centigrade and not more than 38 degree centigrade unless otherwise specified. It shall be compacted in its final position within 30 minutes of its discharge from the mixer unless carried in properly designed agitators, operating continuously, when this time shall be within 2 hours of the addition of cement to the mix and within 30 minutes of its discharge from the agitator. Except where otherwise agreed to by the Engineer ­ in - charge concrete shall be deposited in horizontal layers to a compacted depth of not more than 0.45 metre when internal vibrators are used and not exceeding 0.30 metre in all other cases. Unless otherwise agreed to by the Engineer-in-charge, concrete shall not be dropped into place from a height exceeding 2 meters. When trunks or chutes are used they shall be kept clean and used in such a way as to avoid segregation.When concrete is conveyed by chute, the plant shall be of such size and design as to ensure practically continuous flow. Slope of the chute shall be so adjusted that the concrete flows without the use of an excessive quantity of water and without any segregation of its ingredients. The delivery end of the chute shall be as close as possible to the point of deposit. The chute shall be thoroughly flushed with water before and after each working period and the water used for this purpose shall be discharged outside the form work.121When concreting has to be resumed on a surface which has hardened, it shall be roughened, swept clean, thoroughly wetted and covered with a 13 mm thick layer of mortar composed of cement and sand in the same ratio as in the concrete mix itself. This 13 mm layer of mortar shall be freshly mixed and placed immediately before placing of new concrete. Where concrete has not fully hardened, all laitance shall be removed by scrubbing the wet surface with wire or bristle brushes, care being taken to avoid dislodgment of any particles of coarse aggregate and also not to break the bond between concrete and the embedded portion of the dowel bars. The surface shall then be thoroughly wetted, all free water removed, and then coated with neat cement grout. The first layer of concrete to be placed on this surface shall not exceed 150 mm in thickness., and shall be well rammed against old work, particular attention being given to corners and close spots. All concrete shall be compacted to dense homogeneous mass with the assistance of vibrators unless permitted by the Engineer-in-charge. In exceptional cases, such as concreting under water, vibrators can not be used. Sufficient vibrators in exceptional working condition shall be kept at site so that stand by equipment's are available in the event of breakdowns. The performance requirements of vibrators shall conform to relevant I. S. codes. Vibration applied through reinforcement, and where vibrators of immersion type are used, contact with reinforcement inserts shall be avoided, as far as practicable. Concreting under water : When it is necessary to deposit concrete under water, the methods, equipments, and materials of the mix to be used shall be got approved from the Engineer-in-charge before any work is started. Such concreting be considered as controlled concrete i.e. design mix. Concrete shall not be placed under temperature below 50 degree centigrade. The temperature of concrete, when deposited, shall be however not less than 50 centigrade nor more than 40 degree centigrade. Concrete to be placed under water shall contain ten percent more cement than that required for the same mix placed in the dry. The slump shall not be less than 100 mm nor more than 180 mm. The slump shall be tested as per I. S. 516. Coffer-dams or forms shall be water tight to ensure still water conditions if practicable and in any case to reduce the flow of water to less than 3 meters per minute through the space into which concrete is to be deposited. The forms in still water shall be sufficiently tight to prevent loss of mortar through the122joints in the walls. Pumping shall not be done while concrete is being placed, or until 24 hours thereafter. Concrete shall continue to be deposited until it has been brought to the required height. The top surface shall always be kept as wet as far as possible and formation of seems avoided. For concrete any one of the following methods may be used. · Tremie : When concrete is to be deposited under water by means of tremie, the top section of the tremie shall be a hopper large enough to hold one full batch mix or the entire contents of the transporting bucket. The tremie pipe shall not be less than 200 mm dia. and also shall be large enough to allow a free flow of concrete and strong enough to with stand the external pressure of water in which it is suspended, even if a partial vacuum develops inside the pipe. Preferably, flanged steel pipe of adequate strength for the job shall be used. A separate lifting device shall be provided for each tremie pipe with its hopper at the upper end. Unless the lower end of the pipe is equipped with an approved automatic check valve, the upper end of the pipe shall be plugged with a wedging by use of gunny sacks or other approved material before delivering the concrete to the tremie pipe through the hopper, so that when the concrete is forced down from the hopper to the pipe, it will force the plug (and along with it any water in the pipe) down the pipe and out of the bottom end. Thus establishing a continuous stream of concrete. It will be necessary, to raise slowly the tremie in the order to allow a uniform flow of concrete, but it shall not be emptied so that water enters above the concrete in the pipe. At all times after the placing of concrete is started and until all the requirement quantity has been placed, the lower end of the tremie pipe shall be kept below the top surface of the plastic instead of flowing out over the surface, and thus avoid formation of layers of laitence. If the charge in the tremie is lost while depositing, the tremie shall be raised above the concrete surface, and unless sealed by a check valve it shall be re-plugged at the top end, as at the beginning before refilling for depositing further concrete. · Drop Bottom Bucket : The top of the bucket shall be closed. The bottom doors shall move freely downward and outward when tripped. The bucket shall be filled completely and lowered slowly to avoid backwash. It shall not be dumped until it rests on the surface upon which the concrete is to be deposited and when discharged shall be withdrawn slowly until well above the concrete. To minimize the formation of laitance, great care shall be exercised to disturb the concrete as far as possible while it is being deposited.123Curing of concrete : (E) Protection and Water Curing :Immediately after compaction, concrete shall be protected against harmful effects of weather, including rain, running water, shocks, vibration, traffic, rapid temperature changes, and drying out process. It shall be covered with wet gunny bags, hessin or other similar absorbent material approved by the Engineer-in-charge soon after the initial set, and shall be kept continuously wet for a period not less than 21 days from the date of placement. Masonry work if any over the foundation concrete may be started after 48 hours of its laying but the curing of concrete shall be started soon after concrete is laid and continued for a minimum period 21 days. (F) Steam Curing Where steam curing is adopted it shall be ensured that it is done in a suitable enclosure to contain the live steam to minise moisture and heat losses. The initial application of the steam shall be from two to four hours after the placement of concrete to allow the initial set of the concrete to take place. Where retards are used, the waiting period before application of the steam shall be increased from four to six hours. The steam shall be at 100 percent relative humidity to prevent loss of moisture and to provide excess moisture for proper hydration of cement. The application of steam shall not be directly on concrete and the ambient air temperature shall increase at a rate not exceeding 5 degree centigrade per hour until is maximum temperature of 600 C to 700 C is reached. The maximum temperature shall be maintained until the concrete has reached the desired strength. When steam curing is discontinued, the ambient air temperature shall not drop at a rate exceeding 50 centigrade per hour until a temperature of about 100 centigrade above the temperature of the air to which the concrete will be exposed, has been reached. Working in Extreme Weather : When depositing concrete in very hot weather, precautions shall be taken so that the temperature of wet concrete does not exceed 400 C while placing. This shall be achieved by stacking aggregate under the sheds and keeping them moist, using cold water or crushed or flaked ice if specified and permitted by the Engineer, reducing the time between mixing and placing to the minimum, cooling formwork by sprinkling water, starting curing before concrete dries out and restricting concreting, as far as possible, to mornings and evenings.124During hot-weather and rains the concrete shall be covered with tarpaulin and transported in as short a time as possible and placed in the forms and consolidated to final state. Commencement of concrete pours shall be avoided during heavy rains, storms and high winds. Finishing Immediately after the removal of forms, all exposed bars or, bolts passing through the reinforced cement concrete member and used for shuttering or any other purpose shall be cut inside the reinforced cement concrete member to a depth of at least 25 mm below the surface of the concrete. The resulting holes shall be closed by cement mortar. All fins caused by form joints shall be broken. All cavities produced by the removal of forms and ties, all other holes and depressions, honey-comb spots, broken edges of corner and other defects, shall be thoroughly cleaned, saturated with water, and carefully pointed and rendered true with mortar of cement and fine aggregate mixed in the proportions used in the grade of concrete that is being finished and of as dry a consistency as is possible to use. Considerable pressure shall be applied in filling and pointing to ensure through filling in all voids. Surfaces which have been pointed shall be kept moist for a period of twenty four hours. Any repair and rectification of defective work is to be undertaken and carried out as directed by the Engineer in charge and the cost is to be borne by the Contractor. If in the opinion of the Engineer-in-charge, rock pockets / honey-comb, if met with, are of such an extent or character as to affect materially to the strength of the structure or endanger the life of the steel reinforcement, he may declare the concrete defective and direct removal and replacement of the portions of the structure affected. All construction and expansion joints in the completed work shall be left carefully looked and free from any mortar and concrete. Expansion joint filler shall be left exposed for its full length with clean and true edges. Curing of the surface shall be continued for a period of 21 days. Classes of Finishing The surface finish for formed and unformed surfaces are classified and defined as below. Surface irregularities permitted for the various classes of finishes are termed either &quot;abrupt&quot; pr &quot;gradual&quot;. Fins or offsets caused by displaced or misplaced from sheathing, lining or125form sections, by loose knots in form lumber or by otherwise defective form lumber are considered abrupt irregularities. All other cases are described as gradual irregularities. Gradual irregularities will be measured with a template consisting of a straight edge for plane surfaces or its equivalent for curved surfaces. The length of template for testing gradual irregularities on formed surfaces shall be 1.5 m. in length, the permissible gradual irregularities being measured over this length of the template. Special surfaces, finishes and treatment falling outside of these classes but defined elsewhere by the engineer shall also form part of these specifications. Finish F1, F2 and F3 shall describe formed surfaces. Finish U1, U2 and U3 shall describe unformed surfaces. Class F1 Finish : This class of finish shall apply to all formed surfaces for which class F2 or F3 is not specified. It shall generally be formed by sawn timber formwork so constructed that there shall be no loss of material from the concrete during placement and compaction. After hardening, the concrete shall be in the positions required and shall have the shape and dimensions called for in the drawings. Any abrupt irregularities shall not exceed 8 mm and gradual irregularities shall not exceed 16 mm. All fins and drifts in excess of the above limits shall be made good by chipping and grinding if required by the Engineer in Charge. Small blemishes caused by entrapped air or water may be expected but the surface shall be free form voids, honeycombing or other large blemishes. Class F1 finish shall be generally specified for all surfaces buried in ground or not visible during service or for surfaces that are to receive further rendering treatment such as plastering etc. Unless otherwise specified in the item of Bill of Quantity the surface finish shall be understood to be Class F1. Class F2 Finish : Class F2 finish shall be obtained by the use of properly designed forms with closely jointed wrought timber forms or with forms having plywood or steel sheet lining. The abrupt irregularities shall not exceed 5 mm. and gradual irregularities shall be less than 8 mm. Small blemishes caused by entrapped air or water may be permitted but the surface shall be generally free from honeycombing, voids and large blemishes. Surface irregularities in excess of those stipulated shall be removed by chipping or rubbing with abrasive stone126Class F3 Finish : Class F3 finish shall be formed by specially designed close jointed rigid forms having lining of high quality form plywood in which the surface irregularities shall be limited to nil for abrupt irregularities and upto 3 mm for gradual irregularities. Class F3 finish may be obtained from Class F2 finish by carefully removing all fins, projections, abrupt irregularities by rubbing. Grinding. If steel forms are used they shall be subject to Engineer in charge's approval. In addition, finish F3 shall include filling air holes with mortar and treatment of the entire surface with sack rubbed finish. It shall also include clean up of loose and adhering debries. Where a sack rubbed finish is specified, the surfaces shall be prepared within two days after removal of the forms. The surfaces shall be wetted and allowed to dry slightly before mortar is applied by sack rubbing. The mortar used shall consist of one part cement to one and one half parts by volume of fine (I.S. No. 16 mesh) sand. Only sufficient mixing water to give the mortar a workable consistency shall be used. The mortar shall then be rubbed over the surface with a fine burlap or linen cloth so as to fill all the surface voids. The mortar in the voids shall be allowed to stiffen and solidify after which the whole surface shall be wiped clean with clean burlap such that all air holes etc. are filled and the entire surface presents a uniform appearance without air holes, irregularities etc. Class U1 Finish : This is the screeded finish used on the surface over which other finish such as wearing coat etc. are to be placed. IT is also the first step in the formation of U2 to U3 finishes. The finishing operation consists of levelling and screeding the concrete to produce an even uniform surface so that the gradual irregularities are not greater than 6 mm. Surplus concrete should be removed immediately after consolidation by striking it off with a sawing motion or straight edge or template across a wooden or metal strip that has been set as guide. Unless the drawing specifies a horizontal surface or shows the slope required, the tops of narrow surfaces, such as stair treads, walls, curbs and parapets shall be sloped approximately 10 mm per 300 mm width. Surfaces to be covered with concrete topping, terrazzo and similar surfaces shall be smooth screeded and leveled to produce even surface, irregularities not exceeding 6 mm. Class U3 Finish : This is a trovelled finish used on all surfaces exposed to view at close quarters such as top of parapets and kerbs etc. steel trovelling should not be started until after the moisture film and &quot;Shine&quot; have completely disappeared from the floated surface and until the concrete has hardened enough to prevent an excess of fine material and water from being worked to the surface. Excessive trovelling especially if started too soon tends to produce crazing and lack of durability. Too long a delay will result in a surface too hard for proper finishing steel trovelling should be performed with a firm127pressure that will flatten and smooth a sandy surface left by floating. Trovelling should produce a dense, uniform surface free of blemishes, ripples and trovel marks. It shall include the repair of abrupt irregularities and the repair of gradual irregularities exceeding 6 mm, finishing joints and edges of concrete with edging tools. Form liner Finish : This is the liner finish surfaces on the structural components shown on drawings and directed by Engineer in charge. The bissazza tiles of any other tiles equivalent to bissazza of approved quality shall be pasted in the pattern &amp; locations suggested by the architect with approved bedding materials as directed by Engineer in charge &amp; Architects. Construction Joints Concreting shall be carried out continuously upto the construction joints, the position and details of which shall be as shown on approved drawings or as directed by the Engineer-in-charge. Such joints shall, however, be kept to the minimum. For a vertical construction joint, a stopping board shall be fixed previously at the pre-determined position and shall be properly stayed for sufficient lateral rigidity to prevent its displacement or bulging when concrete is completed against it. Concreting shall be continued right up to the board. The board shall not be removed before the expiry of the specified period for removal of vertical forms. Before resuming work at any construction joint when concrete has not yet fully hardened, all latencies shall be removed thoroughly, care being taken to avoid dislodgment of coarse aggregates. When work has to be resumed on a surface that has hardened, it shall be thoroughly hacked, swept clean, wetted and covered with a layer of neat cement grout. The neat cement grout shall be followed by a 13 mm thick layer of mortar mixed in the same proportion as in concrete and concreting resumed immediately thereafter. The first batch of concrete shall be rammed against the old work to avoid formation of any stone pocket., particular attention being paid to corners and close spots. In all cases, the position and detailed arrangement of all construction joints shall be predetermined and got approved by the Engineer-incharge. Tests and Standard of Acceptance : (i) Preliminary Tests for Controlled concrete For controlled concrete preliminary tests shall consist of three sets of separate tests, and in each set, tests shall be conducted128on six specimens. Not more than one set of six specimens shall be made on any particular day of the six specimens in each set, three shall be tested at seven days and the remaining three at 28 days. The preliminary tests of 7 days are intended only to indicate the strength likely to be attained at 28 days. (ii) Works Strength Tests for Controlled and ordinary concrete: Works strength tests shall be made in accordance with I.S. 516. Each set shall be conducted on ten specimens. Five of which shall be tested at seven days and the remaining five at 28 days. The sample of concrete shall be taken on each day of concreting and cubes shall be made at the rate of one set for every 50 cubic meter of concrete or a part thereof for each grade. However, if in each grade concreting done in a day is less than 15 cubic meter, the number of cubes can be reduced to 5 with the specific permission of the Engineer-in-charge. Similar works tests shall be carried out whenever the quality and grading of materials is changed irrespective of the quantity of concrete poured. The number of specimens may be suitably increased as deemed necessary by the Engineer-in-charge, when procedure of tests given above reveals a poor quality of concrete and in other special cases. All work shall be carried out under the supervision of qualified and a competent Engineer of the contractor at all stages in proportioning, placing and compacting of concrete. All necessary labour, materials, equipments etc., for sampling, preparing test cubes, curing, transportation and carrying out tests etc. shall be borne by the contractor. Testing of the materials and concrete may be arranged by the Engineer-incharge in an approved laboratory at the cost of the contractor. (iii) Standard of Acceptance The average strength of the group of cubes cast for each day shall not be less than the specified works cube strength. 20 percent of the cubes cast for each day may have values less than specified strength, provided the lowest value is not less than85 percent of specified strength. (iv) Manufacturer's Certification; Testing Rules etc. For all materials required for concrete including cement, aggregate, water, reinforcing and prestressing steel the original copies of test certificates, test results etc. either carried out by129the manufacturer or any other agency, the mix design recommendations etc. shall be submitted to the Engineer in charge for his approval and record. It shall remain the property of the Engineer in charge. (v) Chloride Contents. Since the chloride contents of the constituent materials of the concrete would be detrimental to the strength of concrete., it is desirable to keep check on the overall chloride content of the concrete to keep it minimum. Especially for reinforced concrete, the total chloride content of the concrete when manufactured according to the requirements of workability and strength shall not exceed 500 ppm. By weight of cement. The cost of testing for the chloride content of the ingredients of concrete and of undertaking remedial measures if the chloride content is more than the permissible limit shall be borne by the contractor. Repair Work : Concrete with satisfactory test results but with otherwise minor defects shall only be considered unsatisfactory. It shall be allowed to be repaired by cutting out the if so allowed by the Engineer in charge. Voids to be so filled shall be provided with anchors, keys or dovetail, slots whenever necessary to attach the new material securely in place. Surface of prepared voids shall be wetted for 24 hours immediately before the patching material is placed. Repair to concrete structure shall be carried out by skilled workmen. Repairs shall be made as soon as practicable after removal of forms and in a manner to meet the requirements for the finish specified for the particular location.For repair of the concrete works, the contractor may be permitted to use epoxy as a bonding agent prior to placing fresh concrete. The use of epoxy for the repair work will be at the discretion of the Engineerin-charge. Epoxies shall be applied in strict accordance with the instruction of the manufacturer. Epoxy is a two packed or three packed system containing base and hardners. The shelf life of the unmixed cans is about one year or more when stored in a place, where ambient temperature does not increase beyond 75 F. The base and hardener/s shall be mixed in the correct proportions recommended by the manufacturer. The blend, after mixing intimately, shall have a pot life of one hour and the material shall be applied over the old concrete in a thin film. Fresh concrete shall then be deposited immediately prior to the film drying up so as to ensure proper bonding between both new and old concrete.130Where the dry pack method is used, holes shall be sharpened and squared at the surface edges, but corners within holes shall be rounded. The perimeter of the hole shall be under cut in several places. Holes for dry pack shall have a minimum depth of 25 mm. The holes to be repaired shall be scrupulously clean and slightly wet with no free water on the surface. The surface shall then be dusted lightly with cement by means of dry brush. Under no condition shall the holes be painted with neat cement grout. The dry pack mix shall be proportioned by weight 1 part cement to 2 ½ parts of sand that will pass a No. 16 screen. Only enough water shall be used to produce a mortar which will stick together when moulded into a ball by a slight pressure of the hands and will not extrude but will leave the hands just damp. Dry pack material shall be placed and packed in layers having a compacted thickness of about 10 mm. Each layer shall be solidly compacted over its entire surface by use of hardwood stick and hammer. The stick is normally about 300 mm. to 460 mm long and not over 30 mm in diameter. Most of the tamping should be directed at a slight angle and towards the side of the hole to assure maximum compaction and bond. Water shall not be used to facilitate finishing. Filling material used in repair of surfaces which will be exposed after completion of the project shall be made with cement from the same sources as that used in concrete and blended with a sufficient amount of white portland cement to produce the same colour as in the adjoining concrete. Patched surfaces shall be given a final treatment as required to make the texture of the patch match that of the surrounding material. Immediately after patching is completed, the patched area shall be covered with an approved non staining, water-saturated material which shall be kept wet and protected against sun and wind for a period of 12 hours. Thereafter, the patched area shall be kept continuously wet by a fine spray or sprinkling for not less than 10 days as required. The layers of gunite may be reinforced with steel mesh if directed by the Engineer ­ in- charge. All materials, procedures and operations used in the repair of concrete and also the finished work shall be subject to the approval of the Engineer-in-charge. All fillings shall be tightly bonded to the concrete and shall be sound, free from shrinkage cracks, or dummy areas after the fillings have been cured and dried. The extent of repair shall be decided upon by the Engineer-in-charge. The cost of repairs of defective areas shall be borne by the Contractor. The Engineer may adopt, at his discretion, any other method of repairing like grouting with cement grout, epoxy grout or guniting etc.131which will be carried out by the contractor at his cost as per the specifications supplied by the Engineer. Use of Plums in Concrete : Use of plums in concrete shall not be permitted. Additional Points to be followed : (1) (2) (3) Major concrete above 5.0 m3 only will be allowed by RMC plant. Following RMC plant are approved. Ultratech, Lapharge, ACC, RMC(India) Frequency of Testing to be done from outside contractor's side. Out of which 60% shall be done though government organization. Contractors own RMC plant with computerized printing facility shall be allowed to be approved by VMSS.(4)Measurements for Payment : 1 The cement concrete shall be measured in cubic meter. In reinforced concrete the volume occupied by reinforcement shall not be deducted. Any concrete used in excess of theoretical dimension shown on the drawings will not be paid. Unacceptable work. All defective concrete work, including but not limited to defects arising out of honey combing, under sizing, under strength etc. will have to be demolished and rebuilt by the contractor at his own cost as may be directed by the Engineer in charge. In the event of such works being accepted by carrying out minor repairs etc. as suggested by the contractor and accepted by the Engineer in charge. He will be paid for the work actually carried out by him at the reduced rate as may be asked by the Engineer-in-charge for portion of the work that may be accepted with repairs done by the contractor. Rate : The unit rate for concrete shall include the cost of all materials, labours, tools and plant required for mixing, placing in position, vibrating, compacting, finishing as per directions of the Engineer in charge , and all other incidental expenses for producing and laying in position concrete of specified strength to complete the structure or its components as shown on the drawings and according to these specifications. The rate shall also include the cost of making, fixing1322 3and removing of all centering and forms required for the work unless otherwise specified in the contract. All expenses likely to be incurred by the contractor in transporting materials procured at the site of works, the expenses incurred in improving the quality of materials to acceptable levels (such as screening, washing etc.) and the expenses incurred for proper storage of materials as directed by the engineer in charge etc. are to be included in the unit rate.
