 Introduction
 Rmc used in india
 Objectives
 Advantages
 Disadvantages
 Mixing process.
 Transit mixed concrete
 Ready mix concrete is a specialized material in which
the cement , aggregate and other ingredients are
weighed batched at a plant in a mixer or truck mixer
 The fresh concrete is manufactured in a plant away
from the construction site and transported to the site in
time. The fresh concrete will be available in site.
 In India RMC was first initially was used in 1950 during
the construction of sites of dam like bhakra nangal dam
and koyna
 At the construction the transportation of concrete is
done by either manually or mechanically using buckets
are conveyers system.

• Better quality of cement is produced.

• Elimination of storage space for basic materials
at site.
• Wastage of basic materials is avoided.
• Give the solution for efficient working of plant.
• Better quality of concrete is produced in lesser time
• Elimination of storage pace for basic matters at site
• Wastage of basic materials is avoided
• Labour charge is less
• Time required is gratly reduced
• Noise and dust pollution is reduced
• The materials are batched at plant and begins at the
plant. It is critical to travel for longer distance
• The mixed concrete should be reach and placed within
2 hours
• The site should have a capacity to take a load of truck
and concrete
• Ready mix trucks are large in size and may cover large
area in road blocking other traffic
Mixing of materials are essential for the production of
uniform concrete the mixing should be homogenous ,
uniform in colour. There are three methods of mixing RMC
Three types of mixing are:
• Transit mixer concrete
• Shrink mixed concrete
• Central mixed concrete
• In transit mixed concrete , also called truck mixed or dry
• The capacity of drum is 6.1m3
• All of the raw ingredients are charged directly in the truck mixer.
The water usually batched in the batched plant according to the
mix proportion.
• The drum is usually rotate in slow speed while it travels to the. It
rotates at the speed of 8rpm for 70 revolutions while traveling to
the site
• The drum rotates at the speed of 12 to 15 rpm for 50 revolutions
in the site for good mix and then the concrete will be
