BUILD & CARE Academy

BUILD & CARE Academy

Core object of the academy is Technical TRAINING & CONCRETE TESTINGS

TRAININGS

It is a knowledge center primarily to act as a Platform for providing Trainings to

  • Practicing Civil engineers
  • Builders
  • Construction company Engineers and supervisors
  • Engineering college students
  • Construction company Technicians

“To Enhancing the service life of built environment through sharing of knowledge and practice in the field of Constructions, Concreting, Waterproofing, Structural protection, repair & Rehabilitations”

The academy is promoted by BUILD & CARE and it is managed and operated on a standalone basis. It is registered under section 25 of the Indian Company Act 1956.

One of the objectives of the Academy is to bring and popularize the state with the Indian Standards and practices in constructions, Waterproofing, Repair and Rehabilitations Technologies. As a step towards achieving this objective, the academy has been conducting several programmes and Events all over the state for creating awareness and skill development in the field Constructions, Waterproofing and repairs of structures.


VISION


To become a premier national knowledge and skill development center for capacity enhancement in Construction practice, waterproofing and other areas of repair, restoration and renewal engineering based on sustainable and Green Technologies


MISSION


To act as a platform of stat and networking for sharing of knowledge and practices in the fields of construction, waterproofing, repair, restoration and renewal engineering in the contact of life cycle assessments of the built environment for adoption of best practices by the country’s construction industry.

CONCRETE NDT – TESTINGS


It is often necessary to test concrete structures after the concrete has hardened to determine whether the structure is suitable for its designed use. Ideally such tasting should be done without damaging the concrete. The tests available for testing concrete range from the completely non-destructive, where there is no damages to the concrete.

The range of properties that can be assessed using non-destructive tests and partially destructive tests is quite large and includes such fundamental parameters as density, elastic modulus and strength as well as surface hardness and surface absorption and reinforcement location ,size and distance from the surface. In some cases it is also possible to check the quality of workmanship and structural integrity by the ability to detect voids, cracking and delimitation.

Non –destructive testing can be applied to both old and new structures. For new structures, the principal applications are likely to be for quality control or the resolution of doubts about the quality of materials or constructions. The testing of existing structures is usually related to an assessment of structural integrity or adequacy.

NDT – Applications in Concrete

  • To determine the density and strength of concrete in a structure.
  • To determine the homogeneity of concrete.
  • To determine the location of reinforcement bars and cover over the bars.
  • To determine the number and size / diameter of reinforcement bars.
  • To determine the extent of defects such as corrosion.
  • To determine internal defects like voids, cracks, delimitation, honey combings and dampness.

METHODS FOR NDT OF CONCRETE STRUCTUCTURE.

  • Visual inspection.
  • Rebound hammer test.
  • Cover meter test.
  • Radiographic testing.
  • Ultrasonic pulse velocity test.
  • Infrared thermograph test.
