                            METHODS OF TRANSPORTATION OF CONCRETE

 

 

The following are the usual methods of transportation of concrete:

 

By pan : In most small and medium- sized buildings in India, concrete is transported by labourers standing in a row and passing the mixed concrete from the mixer to the spot for placing concrete. This requires a large number of labourers and the work is also slow. The output depends on a number of factors including distance of the work from the mixer. On an average 8 labourers are counted for 100 cft concrete on ground floor-2 to 3 more labourers added for each upper floors.

 

By wheelbarrows:When concrete is transported by wheelbarrows in order to prevent segregation in wet mixes or compaction in dry mixer, it is important to avoid jolting the concrete. The wheelbarrows should run smooth, and scaffold boards should be securely clipped. The wheel of the barrows themselves should be kept at the correct pressure. Concrete should be covered in hot or windy weather to prevent its drying out and also in heavy rains from getting wet.

 

By dumpers and lorries : It is when dumpers or lorries are used that one should have to watch out more for segregation or compaction. The weight of the concrete itself is enough to compact the concrete, if it is in the container for a considerable time and jolting must be guarded against as much as possible to prevent segregation.
