 Disadvantages
 Mixing process.
 Transit mixed concrete
INTRODUCTION :-
 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.
READY MIX CONCRETE IN INDIA :-
 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.
OBJECTIVES :-

• 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.
ADVANTAGES :-
• 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
DISADVANTAGES :-
• 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 PROCESS :-
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
TRANSIT MIXED CONCRETE : -
• In transit mixed concrete , also called truck mixed or dry
batched
• 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
discharged.
