7.6 LOAD TESTING ON COMPLETED STRUCTURES
During the period of construction or within the defect liability period the Engineer-
in-Charge may at his discretion order the load testing of any completed structure or
any part thereof if he has reasonable doubts about the adequacy of the strength of
such structure for any of the following reasons:
Financial Bid Vol. II (Specifications) 174
Barapulla Elevated Corridor : Phase II

A.E.(P) E.E.(P) Correction ............NIL........
Deletion .............NIL........
Insertion ........ NIL........

(i) Results of compressive strength on concrete test cubes falling below the
specified strength.
(ii) Premature removal of formwork.
(iii) Inadequate curing of concrete.
(iv) Over loading during the construction of the structure or part thereof.
(v) Carrying out concreting of any portion without prior approval of the
Engineer-in-Charge.
(vi) Honey combed or damaged concrete which in the opinion of the Engineer-
in-Charge is particularly weak and will affect the stability of the structure to
carry the design load, more so in important or critical areas of the structure.
(vii) Any other circumstances attributable to alleged negligence of the contractor
which in the opinion of the Engineer-in-Charge may result in the structure or
any part thereof being of less than the expected strength.
All the loading tests shall be carried out by the contractor strictly in accordance
with the instructions of the Engineer-in-Charge, IS: 456 and as indicated
hereunder. Such tests shall be carried out only after expiry of minimum 28 days or
such longer period as directed by the Engineer-in-Charge.

7.6.1 Methodology
The structure shall be subjected to a super-imposed load equal to 1.0 times the
specified superimposed load assumed in the design. This load shall be maintained
for a period of 24 hours before removal. During the test, struts strong enough to
take the whole load shall be placed in position leaving a gap under the members
as directed. The deflection due to the superimposed load shall be recorded by
sufficient number of approved deflectometers capable of reading up to 1/500 of 1
cm and located suitably under the structure as directed by the Engineer-in-Charge.
The structure shall be deemed to have passed the test if the maximum deflection
at the end of 24 hours of loading does not exceed the deflection given by the
following expressions
D = 0.001 L
2
/25 T
Where,
D = max deflection due to imposed load only
L = span of the member under load test (the shorter span in case of slabs).
The span is the distance between centers of the supports or the clear distance
between the supports plus the depth of the member, whichever is smaller. In case
Financial Bid Vol. II (Specifications) 175
Barapulla Elevated Corridor : Phase II

A.E.(P) E.E.(P) Correction ............NIL........
Deletion .............NIL........
Insertion ........ NIL........

of cantilever, this shall be taken as twice the distance from the support to the end
and deflection shall be adjusted for movement of the support.
T = depth of member.
If within 24 hours of the removal of the superimposed load, the structure does not
recover at least 75% of the deflection under the superimposed load, the test
loading shall be repeated after a lapse of 72 hours. If the recovery after the second
test is less than 80% of the maximum deflection shown during the second test, the
structure shall be considered to have failed to pass the test and shall be deemed
to be unacceptable.
In such cases the portion of the work concerned shall be taken down or cut out
and reconstructed to comply with the specifications. Other remedial measures may
be taken to make the structure secure at the discretion of the Engineer-in-Charge.
However such remedial measures shall be carried out to the complete satisfaction
of the Engineer-in-Charge.

7.6.2 Cost of Testing
All costs involved in carrying out the tests (except integrity test for piles) and other
incidental expense thereto shall be borne by the contractor regardless of the result
of the tests. The contractor shall take down or cut out and reconstruct the defective
work or shall make the remedial measures instructed at his own cost including
consultancy charges for suggestion of remedial measures.

7.6.3 Other Tests
In addition to the above load tests, non-destructive test methods such as core test
and ultrasonic pulse velocity test shall be carried out by the contractor at his own
expense if so desired by the Engineer-in-Charge. Such tests shall be carried out
by an agency approved by the Engineer-in-Charge and shall be done using only
recommended testing equipment. The acceptance criteria for these tests shall be
as specified by the testing agency or good engineering practice and as approved
by the Engineer.

7.7 CEMENT CONCRETE

7.7.11 Transportation, Placing and Compaction of Concrete

Mixed concrete from the RMC / Batching plant shall be transported to the point of
placement by transit mixers and placed in position through concrete pumps and/or
steel closed bottom buckets capable of carrying minimum 0.6 cum concrete. In
case the concrete is proposed to be transported by transit mixer, the mixing speed
shall not be less than 4 rev/min. of the drum nor greater than a speed resulting in a
peripheral velocity of the drum 70 m/minutes at its largest diameter. The agitating
speed of the agitator shall be not less than 2 rev/min nor more than 6 rev/min of
the drum. The number of revolution of the mixing drum or blades at mixing speed
shall be between 70 to 100 revolutions for a uniform mix, after all ingredients, have
been charged into the drum. Unless tempering water is added, all rotation after
100 revolutions shall be at agitating speed of 2 to 6 rev/min and the number of
such rotations shall not exceed 250. The general construction of transit mixer and
other requirement shall conform to IS:5892.

In case concrete is to be transported by pumping, the conduit shall be primed by
pumping a batch of mortar through the line to lubricate it. Once the pumping is
started, it shall not be interrupted (if at all possible) as concrete standing idle in the
line is liable to cause a plug. The operator shall ensure that some concrete is
always there in the pump receiving hopper during operation. The lines shall
always be maintained clean and shall be free of dents.

at all stages. Special precaution shall be taken that surrounding temperature
during concreting shall not exceed 30 degree centigrade

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 450 mm.
Unless agreed to by the Engineer- in-Charge, concrete shall not be dropped into
place from a height exceeding 1.5m. In order to avoid such situations chutes,
tremie pipe or closed bottom buckets shall be used. These shall be kept clean and
used in such a way as to avoid segregation. Slope of the chute shall be so
adjusted that concrete flows without the use of excessive quantity of water. The
delivery end of 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 formwork. The
concrete shall be compacted by using immersion type vibrators. When the
concrete is being continuously deposited to a uniform depth along a member,
vibrator shall not be operated within one meter of free end of the advancing
concrete. Every effort shall be made to keep the surface of the previously placed
layer of concrete alive so that the succeeding layer can be amalgamated with it by
the vibration process. In case the concrete in underlying layer has hardened to
such an extent that it cannot be penetrated by the vibrator but is still fresh (that is,
just after initial set), un-imposed bond shall be achieved between the top and
underlying layer by first scarifying the lower layer before the new concrete is
placed by systematically and thoroughly vibrating the new concrete. The points of
Financial Bid Vol. II (Specifications) 182

insertion of vibrator in the concrete shall be so spaced that the range of action
overlap to some extent and the freshly filled concrete is sufficiently consolidated at
all locations. The spacing between the dipping positions of vibrator shall be
maintained uniformly throughout the surface of concrete so that concrete is
uniformly vibrated. The vibrating head shall be regularly and uniformly inserted in
the concrete so that it penetrates of its own accord and shall be withdrawn slowly
whilst running so as to allow redistribution of concrete in its way and allow the
concrete to flow back into the hole behind the vibrator. The vibrator head shall be
kept in one position till the concrete within its influence is completely consolidated.
Vibration shall be continued until the coarse aggregate particle have blended into
the surface but have not disappeared. The contractor shall keep at least one
additional vibrator in serviceable condition to be used in the event of breakdowns
and maintenance problems.

The vibrator head shall not be brought more than 200 mm near to the formwork as
this may cause formation of water stagnations. The formwork shall be strong and
great care shall be exercised in its assembly. It shall be designed to take up
increased pressure of concrete and pressure variations caused in the
neighbourhood of vibrating head, which may result in excessive local stress on the
formwork. The joints of the formwork shall be made and maintained tight and
close enough to prevent the squeezing out slurry or sucking in of air during
vibration. The formwork to receive concrete shall be cleaned and made free from
standing water, dust, etc. The contractor shall keep provision for screed and
shutter vibrators at site.

No concrete shall be placed in any part of the structure until the approval of
Engineer-in-Charge has been obtained. 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 shall be done 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 a proper construction joint is
formed. 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. The 13 mm layer of mortar shall be freshly mixed and placed
immediately before placing of new concrete.

Where concrete is not fully hardened, all latency shall be removed by scrubbing
the wet surface with wire or bristle brushes. Care shall be taken to avoid
dislodgement of particles of coarse aggregate. The surface shall then be
thoroughly wetted, all free water removed and then coated with neat cement grout.
Particular attention shall be given to corners and close spots.

7.7.12 Surface Finish

The exposed surface of concrete of all grades shall be shutter finished except
where form liner is used. Concrete with surface defects larger than 1/6th of the
Financial Bid Vol. II (Specifications) 183

cover shall be rejected. Any special surface finish such as form liner finish of outer
surface of crash barrier, shall be as per approved drawing or as directed by the
Engineer-in-Charge. The quoted rates shall deemed to have included such
elements and nothing extra shall be payable on this account.

All members above ground or formation level shall have shutter finished surfaces.
The contractor shall ensure that Piers are cast in a single pour without any
construction joint. No tie bolt shall be permitted in piers. Cast-in-situ superstructure
shall be casted in single pour between the expansion joints. Utmost care shall be
taken by the contractor in erection of formwork for components cast in stages if
any. Location of construction joints in between such stages shall be pre-decided
and all such joints shall be treated in a manner approved by the
Engineer-in-charge so as to match with the surrounding concrete without leaving
any visual aberration or bad patches and/or bands. The contractor shall be
deemed to have included the cost of such operation in his quoted rates and no
claim whatsoever shall be entertained at a later date.

The form finished concrete surfaces shall be free from honeycomb, blemishes,
holes, surface defects, surface undulation etc. In no case such defects shall
exceed 200 mm in any direction for individual spots or the continued area of such
defects shall not exceed 0.2% of the entire area of related surface. Any variation
beyond this limit shall be considered as a substandard work and shall be liable for
rejection. The Engineer-in-Charge shall have the option to accept the so formed
concrete at a reduced rate for defects exceeding this limit provided it is structurally
adequate and due matching of defective patches is done by the contractor to the
entire satisfaction of the Engineer-in-Charge.

Special care shall be taken to ensure that no stains are left on the formed concrete
either from formwork or exposed reinforcement bars. Such stains shall be
removed by the contractor at no extra cost so as to match with adjoining concrete
surfaces to the satisfaction of the Engineer-in-Charge.

7.7.13 Additional Specifications for Concrete M60 or Above

Mineral admixture in the form of micro-silica or condensed silica fume shall be
permitted in the design mix. It shall comply with ASTM C 1240-03a Standard
Specifications for Silica Fume used in Cementitous Mixtures.

(i) It should be procured from proven and reliable manufacturer / supplier to
the satisfaction of the Engineer-in-Charge.
(ii) Adequate and complete dispersal of the micro silica during the concrete
mixing shall be ensured.
(iii) When micro-silica is used in powder form the contractor shall take all
precautions against potential health hazards during handling of the material.
(iv) Chilled water and / or ice shall be used in the concrete mix depending on
the ambient temperature, dimensions of the concrete element, rate of
pouring and design mix constituents.

(v) Special detailed curing arrangements shall be made for dissipation of the
heat of hydration. The water curing shall be continued for a period of 21
days.
(vi) The concrete design mix and arrangement for mixing, transportation and
curing of concrete shall be subject to the approval of the Engineer-in-
Charge.

7.7.14 Curing of Concrete

Curing of concrete shall be complete and continuous using water that is free of
harmful amounts of deleterious materials that may attack, stain or discolour the
concrete.

Immediately after compaction and completion of any surface finishes, the concrete
shall be protected from evaporation of moisture by means of polyethylene sheets,
wet hessian or other material kept soaked by spraying. As soon as the concrete
has attained a degree of hardening sufficient to withstand surface damage, moist
curing shall be implemented and maintained for a period of at least 14 days after
casting.

Method of curing and their duration shall be such that the concrete will have
satisfactory durability and strength and members will suffer a minimum distortion,
be free from excessive efflorescence and will not cause undue cracking in the
works by its shrinkage.

The top surface of the slabs and other horizontal surfaces shall be cured by
impounding water in cement mortar bunds. Steeply sloping and vertical formed
surfaces shall be kept completely and continuously moist prior to and during the
striking of formwork by applying water to the top surfaces and allowing it to pass
down between the formwork and the concrete. After removal of form, moist curing
to be done by wrapping hessian cloth, etc. and keeping it moist by suitable means.
Approved non-wax base curing compounds can be applied on vertical and inclined
surfaces, after 7 days of moist curing, where permitted by the Engineer-in-Charge
at no extra cost. However it is required to be proved that using curing compound
the concrete shall not have less strength than concrete cured by water curing. It
shall not leave any discolouration on the structural concrete. Such approved
compounds shall be applied to all exposed surfaces of the concrete.

Steam curing with approved methodology can be adopted if required, for precast
segments. No additional payment will be made for adopting steam curing.

7.7.15 Concreting of Narrow Members

Wherever the concreting of narrow member as in case of piers/ column (as
adjudged by Engineer-in-Charge) is required to be carried out within shutters of
considerable depth, temporary openings in the sides of the shutters shall, if so
desired by the Engineer-in- charge, be provided to facilitate the pouring and
Financial Bid Vol. II (Specifications) 185

consolidating of concrete. Before any concreting is commenced, shutters and
centering shall be carefully examined and the space to be occupied by the concrete
be thoroughly cleaned out. The concrete in such members shall be compacted with
suitable shutter vibrators as appropriate.

7.7.16 Protection of Concrete below ground level

Concrete placed below the ground shall be protected from falling earth during and
after placing. Concrete placed in ground containing deleterious substances shall
be kept free from contact with such ground and with water draining there from
during placing and for a period of seven days or as otherwise instructed thereafter.
Approved means shall be taken to protect immature concrete from damage by
debris, excessive loading, abrasion, vibrations, deleterious ground water, mixing
with earth or other materials, and other influences that may impair the strength and
durability of the concrete.

7.7.17 Construction Joints

Before the concrete is fully hardened, all latency shall be removed by scrubbing
the wet surface with wire or bristle brushes. Care shall be taken to avoid
dislodgement of particles of coarse aggregate. The surface shall then be
thoroughly wetted, all free water removed and then coated with neat cement grout.
Particular attention shall be given to corners and close spots.

Construction joints in all concrete work shall be made as directed by the Engineer-
in-Charge. Where vertical joints are required, these shall be shuttered as directed
and not allowed to take the natural slope of the concrete. Before fresh concrete is
placed against a vertical joint, the old concrete shall be chipped, cleaned and
moistened.

When a horizontal construction joint is formed, provision shall be made for
interlocking with the succeeding layer by the embedment of saturated wooden
blocks or wooden strips beveled on four sides to facilitate their removal. Prior to
the next pour the wooden pieces shall be loosened and removed in such a manner
as to avoid injury to the concrete. After about 8 to 12 hours of concreting, contact
surface shall be hacked to expose the aggregate surface and remove laitance.
Immediately thereafter clean the surface using compressed air to remove all the
dirt. The surface shall then be compressed cleaned to remove all dirt. Before
applying fresh concrete, the contact surface shall be wetted for at least 6 hours.
After the surface has dried, a coat of cement slurry shall be applied uniformly using
a brush over the old concrete just before placing the fresh concrete. The fresh
concrete shall be placed immediately after applying the cement coats. The fresh
concrete shall be thoroughly vibrated near the construction joint so that the mortar
from the new concrete flows between the large aggregate and develop proper
bond with old concrete. The construction joint shall ensure proper bond and leak
proof joint.

If use of metal, rubber or plastic water stops is specified, this shall be cast into
joints. Measures shall be taken by the Contractor to ensure that no displacement
or distortion of water stops takes place during placing of concrete. The
construction joints shall ensure proper bond and leak proof joint.


7.7.18 Defects in Concrete

A. Cracks
If external cracks developed in concrete construction are more than 0.2 mm and in
the opinion of the Engineer-in-Charge, these are detrimental to the strength of the
construction, the Contractor at his own expense will conduct Loading Tests on the
structure in the manner as specified elsewhere in this document. If under such test
loads the cracks develop further, the Contractor shall dismantle the construction,
carry away the debris, replace the construction and carry out all consequential
work thereto.

If any cracks develop in the concrete construction are not more than 0.2 mm or in
the opinion of the Engineer-in-Charge, the cracks are not detrimental to the
stability of the construction, the Contractor at his own expense shall grout the
cracks with neat cement grout or with other composition as directed by Engineer-
in-Charge and also at his own expense and risk shall make good to the satisfaction
of the Engineer-in-Charge all other works such as plaster, moulding, surface finish,
which in the opinion of the Engineer-in-Charge have suffered damage either in
appearance or stability owing to such cracks. The Engineer-in-Charge's decision
as to the extent of the liability of the Contractor in the above matter shall be final
and binding.

B. Honeycombing

If any concrete be found honeycombed or in any way defective, such concrete
shall be cut out partially or wholly by the Contractor as per the directions of the
Engineer-in-charge and made good at his own risk and cost using pressure
grouting or any other technique. If Engineer-in-Charge feels that repaired structure
will not be having same strength or shape or uniformity with other exposed surface
as original desired structure / original structure, the same shall be rejected by
Engineer-in-Charge and required to be dismantled and disposed by contractor at
his own cost as instructed by Engineer-in-Charge. Decision of the Engineer-in-
Charge shall be final binding in this regard.

On no account shall concrete surfaces be patched or covered up or damaged
concrete rectified or replaced until the Engineer-in-Charge or his representative
has inspected the works and issued written instructions for rectification. Failure to
observe this procedure will render that portion of the works liable to rejection.
Contractor shall submit methodology for rectification of defects for approval.
Proprietary products for concrete repair shall be used.

7.7.19 Additional Specifications for Precast Concrete

A. Handling and Storage

The precast units shall be stored as directed by the Engineer-in-Charge. The
area intended for the storage of precast units should be surfaced in such a way
that no unequal settlement can occur.

To prevent deformation of slender units, they should be provided with supports
at fairly close intervals and should also be safeguarded against tilting. Lifting
and handling positions should conform to the Engineer-in-Charge's directions
and drawings. In addition, location and orientation marks should be put on the
members, as and where necessary. During erection the precast units should be
protected against damage caused by local crushing and chafing effects of lifting
and transport equipment.

B. Temporary Supports and Connections

Temporary supports provided during erection should take into account all
construction loads likely to be encountered during the completion of joints
between any combination of precast and in-situ concrete structural elements.
The supports should be arranged in a manner that will permit the proper
finishing and curing of any in-situ concreting and grouting associated with the
precast member being supported when the gaps of joints have to be filled with
concrete or mortar. They should first be cleaned and faces of the joints should
be wetted. The mixing, placing and compacting of cement and mortar should
be done with special care. Mortar of a dry consistency should be in the
proportion of 1:1 (1 part of cement to 1 parts of sand) and should be placed
in stages and packed hard from both sides of the joint.

C. Tolerances

The following tolerances apply to finished precast products at the time of
placement in the structure. The forms must be constructed to give a casting
well within these limits :
i Overall dimensions of members should not vary more than + 6mm per 3m
length with a maximum variation of + 20mm.
ii Cross-sectional dimensions should not vary more than the following :
+ 3mm for sections less than 150mm thick
+ 4mm for sections over 150mm & less than 450mm
+ 6mm for sections over 450mm to 1000mm
+ 10mm for sections over 1000mm
iii Deviation from straight line in long sections should not be more than + 6mm
up to 3m, + 10mm for 3m to 6m, + 12mm for 6m to 12m.

7.8 PILE FOUNDATIONS
The bored cast-in-situ reinforced concrete piles conforming to relevant IRC/IS
Codes shall be provided. The Contractor is advised to go through the sub-soil
investigation report kept in the office of Executive Engineer-123, PWD for
reference purpose. The information provided in the sub-soil investigation report is
for the guidance and indicative only. The Contractor shall assess all other
necessary information at his own cost.

7.8.1 Length
The average basic length of the piles mentioned in the drawings is tentative. The
final length of the pile shall be decided by the contractor with the approval of the
Engineer-in-charge on the basis of resistance actually observed during initial load
test at site. It will be the responsibility of the contractor to ensure by subsequent
routine load tests that the installed length of piles is able to carry the specified safe
load and the resulting deflections shall be within permissible load test.

The contractor should study the bore log data (which may be seen in the Office of
the Engineer-in-Charge) and satisfy himself regarding the sub soil and adequacy
of designed length of piles. In case of failure of any pile in routine load test, the
additional remedial measures shall be borne by the contractor and no claim shall
be entertained on his account.

7.8.2 Methodology, Programme and Records
The Contractor shall submit full details of his proposed piling plant, and detailed
method statements for carrying out the Works to the Engineer-in-Charge for
approval prior to the commencement of piling work by at least two weeks. The
method statement should include all details of casings and concreting methods in
respect of bored cast in situ concrete piles. The method adopted shall be chosen
giving due consideration to the subsoil data, ground water conditions and to the
other relevant conditions at site as well as to the presence of adjacent structures.
Piles shall be constructed in a sequence approved by the Engineer-in-Charge.
During boring, the Contractor shall, where required by the Engineer-in-Charge,
take soil, rock or ground water samples and transport them to an approved testing
laboratory or carry out soil tests as directed.

The Contractor shall not commence any piling until the plant and methods which
he proposes to use have been approved by the Engineer-in-Charge but such
approval shall not relieve the Contractor from any of his obligations and
responsibilities under the Contract. If for any reason the Contractor wishes to
make any change in the plant and methods of working which have been approved
by the Engineer-in-Charge, he shall not make any such change without having first
obtained the Engineer-in-Charge approval thereof.

The Contractor shall intimate the Engineer-in-Charge, in writing, each days
programme of piling in advance by one day and shall give adequate information of
his intention to work outside normal hours and at weekends, whenever required.
Financial Bid Vol. II (Specifications) 189
Barapulla Elevated Corridor : Phase II

A.E.(P) E.E.(P) Correction ............NIL........

The Contractor shall keep complete records of all data required by the Engineer-in-
Charge covering the fabrication, driving and installation of each pile and shall
submit two copies of these records in pre-approved format to the Engineer-in-
Charge within 24 hours of the execution of any pile.

7.8.3 Reinforcement
The reinforcement shall be pre-fabricated in one length, hoisted & lowered by a
crane. The quantity of reinforcement to be provided at each cross section shall be
in accordance with the prescribed/approved drawings and shall be got approved
by the Engineer-in-charge beforehand and should also comply with the stipulations
laid down for "steel reinforcement". The minimum cover to the reinforcement shall
be 75mm and minimum clear spacing between main bars shall be 100mm. Only
circular concrete cover blocks threaded on to the helix shall be used for ensuring
the specified cover. Joints in main longitudinal bars will be permitted only where, in
the opinion of the Engineer-in-Charge, each bar cannot be supplied in one
complete length. Where permitted, joints shall be provided at permitted spacing,
designed to develop the full strength of the bar across the joint, provided with
adequate extra links or stirrups and staggered in position from those of adjacent
longitudinal bars, all with the approval of the Engineer-in-Charge.

All main longitudinal bars shall be tack weld at lapping if any. The last one circle of
helical stirrups at each end shall be welded to main longitudinal bars. Any extra
tack welding required for handling and lowering of cage in borehole shall be done
by the contractor at no extra cost. The reinforcement cage shall be maintained in
position during the casting.

If the bore hole trench excavation is done deeper than the designed or the
specified depth, the pile has got to be done for such depth but payment will be
restricted to the specified depth only. It shall be ensured that before lowering the
reinforcement cage the excavation is done to the required depth so that there is no
short fall in the penetration of the pile below the desired bottom level of excavation.

7.8.4 Boring
Boring shall be done using hydraulic drilling rigs suiting to different kinds of strata
encountered. As a general guideline, size of cutting tool shall in no case be less
than the diameter of the pile minus 75mm. However the size of cutting tool shall be
chosen by contractor depending on the type of substrata and equipment employed
by contractor so that executable pile shall not have diameter less than nominal
diameter of pile as specified in drawing. The contractor shall also ensure that there
is no reduction in poured concrete quantities. These calculations shall be based on
consumption of concrete poured in bore (as recorded in pour log) and actual
concrete required in bore on theoretical basis i.e. based on nominal diameter of
pile and actual bore hole length (based on actual sounding of founding level).
Deficiency in quantity of poured concrete in pile by more than 5 % quantities will
make it liable for rejection. In general piling shall be done by using hydraulic rig
with temporary liner of minimum 5 metre depth from ground level to protect loose
Financial Bid Vol. II (Specifications) 190
Barapulla Elevated Corridor : Phase II

A.E.(P) E.E.(P) Correction ............NIL........
Deletion .............NIL........
Insertion ........ NIL........

soil falling in bore hole as directed by Engineer-in-Charge. No extra payment shall
be made to the contractor for using temporary liner, over the item of piling as in
BOQ. However if Permanent liner is to be provided, extra for using permanent liner
in place of temporary liner shall be paid as per agreement item.

A. Drilling Mud
The bentonite used for preparing the solution shall be of approved quality and shall
have the required properties as per IS:9556 so as to hold the excavated side of the
borehole firmly without any collapse or erosion. The specific gravity of the solution
will be as approved and the contractor shall provide the necessary laboratory
facilities at site for checking the quality of the bentonite earth and the specific
gravity of the solution during the course of the work.

The work shall be carried out in such a way that the area is kept clean and tidy
without causing any nuisance due to over flow or spilling of bentonite slurry or any
other material all over the place. The working area shall be suitability fenced if
required by the Engineer-in-Charge. A certificate shall be obtained by the
contractor from the approved supplier of the bentonite powder showing properties
of the consignment delivered to site. This certificate shall be made available to the
Engineer-in-Charge.

The bentonite powder shall be mixed thoroughly with clean fresh water. The
percentage of bentonite used to make the slurry shall be such as to maintain the
stability of the borehole.

Control tests shall be carried out on the bentonite & bentonite slurry using suitable
apparatus to determine the specified parameters as stated below:

i Mud Density < 1.05 gm/cc
ii Marsh Cone Viscosity between 30 and 40 seconds
iii The pH value between 9.5 and 12
iv Particles with size more than 75 < 1%
v The liquid limit of bentonite > 400%.
vi Bentonite shall be saturated for 24 hours and then used.

Tests to determine density, viscosity & pH etc. shall be carried out initially until a
consistent working pattern has been established, taking into account the mixing
process, any blending of freshly mixed bentonite slurry and previously used
bentonite slurry and any process which may be employed to remove impurities
from previously used bentonite slurry.

Where bentonite slurry is re-used and possibly blended with freshly mixed slurry or
has chemical additions made to preserve its properties, there will be a need for
routine checking throughout the work, particularly in regard to the tests for density
and viscosity.

Financial Bid Vol. II (Specifications) 191
Barapulla Elevated Corridor : Phase II

A.E.(P) E.E.(P) Correction ............NIL........
Deletion .............NIL........
Insertion ........ NIL........

The frequency of testing may initially need to be on each pile basis where
bentonite slurry becomes heavily contaminated during its first use and may in other
cases (e.g. mainly in clayey soil) be on a daily basis where contamination is slight.
Frequency will be decided by the Engineer-in-Charge in the light of the test results
obtained.

In those cases where a mechanical process is employed to remove contaminating
solids from the slurry, the frequency of testing depends on the circumstances and
the equipment employed. The contractor shall indicate to the Engineer-in-Charge
prior to the commencement of the work, that he intends to employ such a method
and tests should be carried as for re-used and blended slurries.

B. Bentonite Slurry in Bore Hole prior to Placing Concrete
Prior to placing concrete in any bore hole, the contractor shall ensure heavily
contaminated bentonite slurry which could impair the free flow of concrete from the
tremie pipe, has not accumulated in the bottom of bore hole. If it occurs, the
proposed method of checking this situation is to be stated by the contractor and is
to be got approved from the Engineer-in-Charge prior to commencement of work. If
the bentonite slurry is found to exhibit properties outside the agreed appropriate
range, then it shall be modified or replaced till the required agreed condition is
achieved. Flushing shall be done with fresh bentonite slurry after lowering of
reinforcement cage and tremie before starting of concreting.

NOTE : One method of identifying contaminated bentonite slurry is to take a
sample of the slurry from near the bottom of the borehole excavation (say about
0.2 m above the base of the borehole) and to carry out a density test on this using
mud balance. Where this method is employed, the density determined should not
be greater than 1.25 g/ml to enable satisfactory concrete placing.

During construction, the level of bentonite slurry in the borehole shall be
maintained within the depth of the temporary casing, and at a level not less than
1.5m above the level of external standing ground water.

Where saline or chemically contaminated ground water occurs, special measures
shall be taken as required by the Engineer-in-Charge to modify the bentonite
slurry.

The modification required depends on the nature of the contamination. In Saline
conditions it is frequently necessary to ensure that the bentonite is fully hydrated in
fresh water before supplying it to the borehole.

All reasonable steps shall be taken to prevent spillage of bentonite slurry on the
site away from the immediate vicinity of the borehole. Discarded bentonite slurry,
which has been pumped from the borehole, is to be removed promptly from the
site. The contractor shall ensure proper disposal of bentonite and the associated
water especially from the point of view of environmental hazard. He shall obtain
Financial Bid Vol. II (Specifications) 192
Barapulla Elevated Corridor : Phase II

A.E.(P) E.E.(P) Correction ............NIL........
Deletion .............NIL........
Insertion ........ NIL........

necessary permission of the concerned statutory bodies before disposing off the
bentonite.

In order to avoid collapse of upper soft soil into the borehole, temporary liner of
thickness not less than 6mm shall be provided upto 5m. from the existing ground
level. The liner shall be provided by hydraulically/mechanically operated
mechanism. After concreting of borehole, the liner shall be extracted.

C. Cleaning of Borehole Bottom
When borehole is stabilised by casing and drilling mud or by maintaining water
head using temporary/permanent casing, the bottom of the hole shall be cleaned
very carefully by reverse circulation. Alternative method shall be employed only
with the prior permission of Engineer-in-Charge in writing before concreting work is
taken up. Cleaning / flushing methodology shall be submitted and got approved by
the Engineer-in-Charge prior to commencement of piling.

Generally, to lift the spoil at founding level before concreting, borehole hole shall
be agitated by jetting with fresh drilling mud at a relatively higher pressure than
that used during boring, or air through tremie pipe. The specific gravity of the mud
suspension in the vicinity of the bottom of borehole shall be determined by using a
suitable slurry sampler. Concreting shall not be taken up when the specific gravity
of bottom slurry is more than 1.20. Consistency of the drilling mud suspension
shall be controlled throughout the boring as well as concreting operation in order to
keep the sides of the hole stabilized as well as to avoid concrete mixed up with the
thicker suspension of the mud.

7.8.5 Tremie Method for Concreting
The concrete for piles underwater or in drilling mud shall be placed with a tremie
pipe. The tremie pipe shall not be less than 200mm diameter for 20mm aggregate.
It is essential that the water level within the pile bore be in equilibrium before
commencement of concreting. The concrete levels in the tremie shall be checked
for every half a metre in order to note the difference, if any, between the theoretical
quantity that should have been placed and actual quantity that has gone in. This
serves to locate the position of over cut during pouring. The dia. of tremie pipe
shall be 200mm minimum and the funnel should be capable of holding 0.4 cum of
concrete.

The following rules shall strictly be observed prior to and during the tremie method:

i The concrete shall be coherently rich in cement and having slump in the range
of 150 to 200mm. Suitable precautions shall be taken for prevention of
segregation. Internal vibrators shall not be used unless the Contractor is
satisfied that segregation will not result because of vibration and unless the
method of use has been approved by the Engineer-in-Charge.

ii The first charge of concrete shall be placed in the hopper over a sliding plate at
the bottom of the hopper. The charge should be adequate in volume to ensure
Financial Bid Vol. II (Specifications) 193
Barapulla Elevated Corridor : Phase II

A.E.(P) E.E.(P) Correction ............NIL........
Deletion .............NIL........
Insertion ........ NIL........

flushing action to prevent mixing of water or drilling mud and concrete.
Alternatively floating plugs of approved specification may be used before the
first charge of concrete.

iii The tremie pipe shall always penetrate deep enough into the concrete with an
adequate margin of safety against accidental withdrawal. The tremie pipe shall
not be withdrawn until the completion of concreting. At all times a sufficient
quantity of concrete shall be maintained within the pipe to ensure that the
pressure from it exceeds that from the seepage water. Spot measurements
shall be taken at suitable intervals to check that the tremie pipe has an
adequate penetration into previous concrete.

iv The joint between the hopper and tremie pipe as well as the joints in the tremie
pipe shall be water tight in order to avoid mixing of borehole fluid with the
concrete.

v The tremie shall essentially be water tight All tremie tubes shall be scrupulously
cleaned after every use.

A. Prolonged Delays In Concreting
Prolonged delays in the commencement of concreting after the completion of
the boring shall not be permitted. The time interval between the completion of
boring and placing of concrete shall not exceed 6 hour. The concreting of a pile
must be completed in one continuous operation. In case of long piles of large
diameter, large size mixers or more mixers shall be used so that the entire
concreting operation is completed in not more than two hours. In case, under
the unavoidable circumstances, the operation has to suspend for a period of 2
hours (maximum), the tremie shall not be taken out of concrete. Instead, it shall
be raised and lowered slowly from time to time which would prevent the
concrete around the tremie from setting. Concreting should be resumed by
introducing a little richer concrete (5% additional cement) with a higher slump
for easy displacement of the partly set concrete.

If the concreting cannot be resumed before final set of the concrete already placed,
the pile so cast may be liable for rejection. Acceptance with modifications shall be at
the sole discretion of the Engineer-in-Charge provided contractor is able to prove to
the satisfaction of the Engineer-in-Charge that the modifications suggested by him
are acceptable. Nothing extra shall be paid on this account. Similarly, contractor
shall be liable to carry out all remedial measures at no extra cost to the Department.

In case of withdrawal of tremie out of the concrete either accidentally or to remove a
choke, the tremie may be reintroduced in the following manner to prevent
impregnation of latence or scum lying on the top of the concrete already discharged
in the borehole.

The tremie shall gently be lowered on the old concrete with a very little
penetration initially followed by a vermiculite plug introduced in the tremie. A
Financial Bid Vol. II (Specifications) 194
Barapulla Elevated Corridor : Phase II

A.E.(P) E.E.(P) Correction ............NIL........

fresh concrete of slump between 150mm and 200mm shall be filled in the
tremie which shall push the plug forward and shall emerge out of the tremie

7.8.6 Cut Off Level ( Col)
Cut off level of piles shall be indicated in working drawings or as indicated by
Engineer-in-Charge.

The top of concrete in pile shall be brought above the cut off level to remove all
laitance & weak concrete and to ensure good concrete at cut off level. Pile is
required to be finished to a height of one meter above the designed cut-off level.
The top of concrete in a pile shall be brought above the cut-off level since the top
concrete is loose and is weak because of contamination with water/drilling mud.
This ensures good concrete at the cut-off level.

As general guidelines, for cut off level up to 1.5m below working level, the concrete
shall be cast of 1000mm above COL. Higher allowance may be necessary
depending on the length of the pile, as directed by the Engineer-in-Charge, when
concrete is placed by tremie method, to permit overflow of concrete for visual
inspection or to a minimum of 1 meter above cut off level. In the circumstance
where COL is below ground water level, the need to maintain a pressure should be
observed & accordingly length of extra concrete above COL shall be determined
by the Contractor and approval of Engineer-in-Charge obtained. No extra payment
over and above the quoted rate for the pile shall be allowed for such spoils.

Any defective concrete in the head of the completed pile shall be cut away and
made good with new concrete.

When a casing is being extracted a sufficient quantity of concrete shall be
maintained within the bore to ensure the pressure from external ground water and
soil is adequately exceeded by the pressure of concrete. Otherwise necking of the
pile may result. No concreting shall be placed in the bore once the bottom of the
casing has been lifted above the top of concrete.

After each pile has been cast any empty bore shall be protected and carefully
backfilled as soon as possible with approved materials.

Complete boring and concreting records shall be submitted to the Engineer-in-
Charge for each pile. The records shall include the duration of concreting, tremie
lengths (individual and cumulative), tremie pipe lengths removed, theoretical
sounding, actual sounding, actual lengths of pile concreted and the volume of
concrete placed, cut off level, founding levels etc, For piles with temporary casings
records of sequence of casing withdrawal and levels of concrete before and after
withdrawal shall also be included in the reports.

The anchorage system shall permit tendons to be inserted in the member after
erection of segments and tensioned from one end or both end.

Care shall be taken to ensure that deformations of match cast segments due to
thermal gradients caused by the heat of hydration of the new cast concrete are
negligible. These deformations shall be prevented by properly protecting both
the match cast and new cast segments with curing blankets and plastic
sheeting. Both the previous segment and the new segment will be maintained
at the same temperature.

Reinforcing steel shall be fabricated in cages and placed according to the shop
drawings (based on execution drawings) made by contractor and approved by
Engineer-in-charge. Any conflict or interference with the proper location of
sheathing and / or reinforcement or block-outs shall be promptly resolved and
corrections made as directed by the Engineer-in-Charge.

All segments shall be marked on the inside with a unique identification at the

segments.

Positive means of holding the sheathing in its correct position shall be provided
in all cases and shall be indicated on the shop drawings submitted for approval.
The sheathing shall be stiffened from the inside by rubber or plastic hoses or by
inflatable rubber tubes.

C. Methods Of Casting

Match cast segments may be cast by the long line or short line method. The
Contractor has to select the option carefully and provide appropriate type of
formwork as well as casting and handling operations. The "short line" method
requires much greater precision in the work as compared to the "long line"
method. Hence short line method will be permitted only for length of flyover
which is straight in plan alignment.

I. The "Long Line" Method
Match cast segments may be cast by the long line method.

The principle of the long line method is the casting of the segments, in their
correct relative position, on a long line casting bed which exactly reproduces
the profile of the structure. A long line is easy to set up, whilst the geometry of
the segments is easily controlled. The segments shall be cast by long line
method for spans curved in plan.

After stripping the forms it is not necessary to take away the segments
immediately. Substantial space may be required for the long line. The
theoretical length for casting alone is normally slightly more than the length of
Financial Bid Vol. II (Specifications) 219
Barapulla Elevated Corridor : Phase II

A.E.(P) E.E.(P) Correction ............NIL........
Deletion .............NIL........
Insertion ........ NIL........

the longest span of the structure. It must be constructed on a firm foundation
which will not settle or deflect under the weight of the segments. In case the
structure is curved, the long line must be designed to accommodate horizontal
and vertical curvature as well as twists, if any, because the forms are mobile,
equipment for casting, curing, etc has to move from place to place. Handling
and Storage Suggested Deck Alignment on Vertical Curves

On Vertical Curves, deck will follow the path of straight line joining the two
points on adjacent piers.

On circular / transition horizontal curves, each segment of the deck will follow
the profile of short chord line. The bottom and side form for segment to be cast
are positioned to span between the stiff fixed end bulkhead and the previously
match cast segment. The previously match cast segment shall be oriented
w.r.t. segment to be cast and it should be ensured that fixed bulkhead always
remain perpendicular to end face of formwork.

Due to orientation of match cast segment, the length of segment towards inner
side of curve will be less and towards outer side of curve will be more than
segment length along centreline. The formwork to be used should have
flexibility to adjust the segment length on both sides by adjusting the position of
the match cast segment without any additional pieces and it shall be ensured
that offset of match cast segment and segment to be cast is limited to value so
calculated.

II. The Short Line Method

The segments are cast at the same place in stationary forms and against a
neighboring element. After casting, the neighboring element is taken away and
the last element is shifted to the place of the neighboring element, clearing the
space to cast the next element. The space needed for the short line method is
small in comparison to the long line method, approximately three times the
length of a segment for one short line. The entire process is centralized.
Horizontal and vertical curves and twisting of the structure are obtained by
adjusting the position of the neighboring segment and through specified
formwork.

To obtain the desired structural configuration, the neighboring segments must
be accurately positioned. Care must be taken that the formwork be sufficiently
flexible to allow for adaptation at the joint with the accurately positioned
matching segment.

D. Separation Of Match-Cast Segments

The Contractor shall provide equipment to be used for uniform separation of
match cast segments without damage. The method as well as details of the
equipment to be used for separating match cast segments shall be included in
Financial Bid Vol. II (Specifications) 220

Deletion .............NIL........
Insertion ........ NIL........

shall be at least the equivalent of saturated surface dry (no visible water).

B. Mixing Of Epoxy

Mixing shall not start until the segment is prepared for installation. Application
of the mixed epoxy bonding agent shall be according to the manufacturers
instructions using trowel rubber glove or brush on one or both surfaces to be
joined. The coating shall be smooth and uniform and shall cover the entire
surface with a minimum thickness of 1 to 2mm applied on both surfaces. Epoxy
should not be placed within 20 mm of pre-stressing ducts to minimize flow into
the ducts. A discernible bead line must be observed in all exposed contact
areas after temporary post-tensioning. Erection operations shall be coordinated
and conducted so as to complete the operations of applying the epoxy bonding
agent to the segments erection assembling and temporary post-tensioning of

about 1 mm each on both the joining surfaces. In order to prevent intrusion of
epoxy in sheathing, an O-ring (10-20mm wide and 4mm thick) of polypropylene
shall be provided on both mating surfaces. The purpose of the epoxy joint shall
be
i to serve as lubricant during segment positioning,
ii to provide water proofing of the joints for durability in service conditions
and
iii to provide a seal to avoid cross-over of grout during grouting of one cable
into other ducts.

The epoxy material shall be applied to all surfaces to be joined within the first
half of the gel time as shown on the containers. The segments shall be joined
within 45 minutes after the application of the first epoxy material placed and a
minimum required temporary pre-stress over the cross section should be
applied within 70 percent of the open time of the epoxy material. The joint shall
be checked immediately after the erection to verify uniform joint width and
proper fit. Excess epoxy from the joint shall be removed where accessible. All
tendon ducts shall be swabbed immediately after stressing while the epoxy is
still in the non-gelled condition to remove or smooth out any epoxy in the
conduit and to seal any pockets or air bubble holes that have formed that joint.

If jointing is not completed with 70 percent of the open time, the operation shall
be terminated and the epoxy bonding agent shall be completely removed to the
maximum possible extent from the surfaces. The surface must be prepared
again and fresh epoxy shall be applied to the surface before resuming jointing
operations. As general instructions cannot cover all situations, specific
recommendations and instructions shall be obtained in each case from the

tests which govern the properties of epoxy for its application and subsequently
determine the durability of joint are required to be done in laboratory
temperature controlled condition. Some tests for evaluating properties of epoxy
are critical in the upper limit of specified application temperature range while
other tests are critical for evaluating the properties in the lower limit of specified
application temperature range. The tests shall be conducted in laboratories
equipped to handle controlled temperature conditions. All tests shall conform to
FIB requirements.

Every batch of Epoxy procured at site shall be tested at the site laboratory at
prevailing ambient temperature (except shear modulus, instantaneous and
deferred modulus in compression and water absorption, heat resistance, shear
strength and solubility in water) are required to be done to conform to the
uniformity of standard of supplied product. In case the received batch is kept at
site for a period of more than three months all tests are required to be re-done.

With every erection, tests for pot life and open time are required to be done at
site at prevailing ambient temperature. Nothing extra shall be payable for
providing epoxy and all related operations.

E. Temporary Pre-stressing Of Epoxy Jointed Segments

bar systems). A minimum compressive stress of 3 kg/cm
2
shall be provided
uniformly over the cross-section for the closure stress on the epoxied joint until
the epoxy has set. This temporary compressive stress can be accomplished
using short HTS bar connecting the adjoining segments. The bars shall be
anchored on temporary steel frame in deck slab and soffit slab. All passing-
through holes in deck slab and soffit slab shall be filled with free flow, high
strength non-shrink cement grout. The curing period for application of the
compressive stress, method of mixing and application of epoxy and all related

7.13.4.2 Cable Profile And Threading The Strands

Pre-stressing steel shall be accurately located and maintained in position, both
vertically and horizontally, as per drawings, within a maximum tolerance of 5 mm.
Tendons shall be so arranged that they have a smooth profile without sudden
bends or kinks. Sheathing shall be placed in correct position and profile by
providing suitable ladders and spacers. Such ladders may be provided at intervals
of approximately 1.0 m. Sheathing shall be tied rigidly with such ladders/spacer
bars so that they do not get disturbed during concreting. The sheathings or the
duct formers being supported and fixed at intervals not exceeding 0.75 m by fixing
steel chairs or spacer bars to secondary reinforcement in such a manner that the
profiles of the cables is in no way disturbed by heavy and prolonged vibrations or
by the pressure of wet concrete or by workmen or construction traffic as well as to
minimise frictional effects during stressing operations.

The positioning of pre-stressed cables shall be such as to facilitate easy placement
and vibration of concrete in between the tendons.

In viaduct constructed by pre-cast segmental construction, cables shall be
threaded after application of temporary pre-stressing. In any cast-in-situ
continuous unit, cables will be stressed as various segments are cast
progressively. Such cables shall be threaded after concreting. During concreting
operation of the segments, it shall be ensured that sheathing is not blocked by
concrete / slurry. In such cases, a temporary flexible PVC tube of 90 mm O.D.
shall be homed through sheathing which will provide adequate stiffness to
sheathing during concreting and also prevent blockage of sheathing in case of
possibility of leakage. The temporary PVC tube shall be pulled out before

Permissible tolerances for positional deviation of pre-stressing tendons in
precast segmental construction shall be limited as defined elsewhere in the
tender document.


7.13.4.3 Concrete Strength Prior To Pre-stressing

It shall be ensured that in no case, the load is applied to the concrete before it
attains the strength specified on the drawing or as stipulated by the pre-stressing
system supplier, whichever is more. No post tensioning of the steel shall take
place until the concrete has attained the specified strength as ascertained from
tests on cubes cured and hardened under the same conditions as the concrete of
the member. Sufficient cubes shall be cast so that if the stipulated strength is not
achieved, further cubes will be available for such additional testing as may be
required.

7.13.4.4 Pre-stressing Operations

Tensioning force shall be applied in gradual and steady steps and carried out in
such a manner that the applied tensions and elongations can be measured at all
times. A small initial tension shall be applied to remove any slackness in the pre-
stressing strands and to hold the jack in position without any support. The initial
tension shall be taken as the starting point for measuring elongation i.e. a datum
shall be established of wires for measuring elongation. This shall be obtained by
plotting on graph a few readings of gauge pressure as abscissa and measured
extensions as ordinates and extending the line joining these points to meet the
vertical axis. The pressure gauge shall be periodically calibrated to ensure that
they are recording pressures correctly. After pre-stressing steel has been
anchored, the force exerted by the tensioning equipment shall be decreased
gradually and steadily as to avoid shock to the pre-stressing steel or anchorage.
The tensioning force applied to any tendon shall be determined by direct reading of
the pressure gauges or dynamo-meters and by comparison of the measured
elongation with the calculated elongation. The calculated elongation shall be
invariably adjusted with respect to the modulus of elasticity of steel for the
particular lot as given by the manufacturer. The required elongation and
corresponding or appropriate pre-stressing force shall be as per the relevant
drawings. The elongation is based on assumed frictional losses, should the
specified elongation not be obtained with the specified force then the force shall be
modified as directed by the Engineer-in-Charge.

The pre-stressing force should be applied from one end or both the ends as
specified in the drawings. Measurement of the force shall be by an accurate gauge
indicating the force of the hydraulic jack and also by the elongation of the steel
after allowing for any initial slip in the wedge or jaws of the grips. When stressing
from one end only, the slip at the end remote from the jack shall be accurately
measured and an appropriate allowance made in the measured extension at the
jacking end.

The sequence of stressing, applied tensions and elongations shall be in
accordance with the approved drawing or as directed by the Engineer-in-Charge.
Each wire, pair or wires, cables, strand or bar shall be attached in such a manner
as to ensure that the elongation is uniform throughout its length, should any
tensioned steel or anchorage break or be damaged, it should be replaced if so
ordered

Throughout all tensioning operations, a spare jack capable of maintaining the
designated load should be available. All tensioning shall be carried out in the order
specified or approved.

1. Elongation In Strands And Pre-stressing Force
The difference between calculated and observed tension and elongation during
pre-stressing operations shall be regulated as follows:

I. If the calculated elongation is reached before the specified gauge pressure is
obtained, continue tensioning till attaining the specified gauge pressure,
provided the elongation does not exceed 1.05 times the calculated elongation.
If 1.05 times the calculated elongation is reached before the specified gauge
pressure is attained, stop stressing and inform the Engineer-in-Charge.

II. If the calculated elongation has not been reached at the specified gauge
pressure, continue tensioning by intervals of 5kg/sq. cm until the calculated
elongation is reached provided the gauge pressure does not exceed 1.05 times
the specified gauge pressure.

III. If the elongation at 1.05 times the Specified gauge pressure is less than 0.95
times the calculated elongation, the following measures must be taken, in
succession, to determine the cause of this lack of discrepancy

i. Check the correct functioning of the jack, pump and leads. De-stress the
cable. Slide it in its duct to check that it is not blocked by mortar which has
entered through holes in the sheath. Re-stress the cable, if free of any
blockage or obstruction.

ii. Re -establish the modulus of elasticity of steel for the particular lot from an
approved laboratory. Contractor may suggest other remedial measure for
approval of the Engineer-in-Charge.

IV. If the required elongation is still not obtained, contact the designer and till
further instructions, further finishing operations as cutting or sealing, should not
be undertaken without the approval of the Engineer-in-Charge.

with elongation and jack pressure data shall be maintained in the format given in
Appendix 1800/II of MORTH Specification. shall be kept by the contractor. Three
copies of all such records shall be furnished to the Engineer-in-Charge.

At transfer of the pre-stress, the measured deflection of the girder shall not exceed
the limits given on the drawings, or as specified to the satisfaction of the
Engineer-in-Charge.

No cracks will generally be permitted on account of (a) shrinkage, settlement of
formwork, or damage in handling before application of pre-stress, (b) local
weakness of concrete at or immediately following pre-stressing, or (c) improper
handling and transporting after application of pre-stress. Any breakage of

place)
d. Overall Length - shall not exceed 10mm or 0.1% of the
span length, whichever is lesser
e. Permissible surface irregularity - 5mm when measured with a 3m
straight edge or template

The tolerances given above are specified for local aberrations in the finished
concrete surface and should not be taken as tolerance for the entire structure taken
as a whole or for the setting and alignment of formwork, which should be as
accurate as possible to the entire satisfaction of the Engineer -in- charge. Errors, if
noticed, in any lift/tilt of the structure after stripping of forms, shall be corrected in the
subsequent work to bring back the surface of the structure to its true alignment
provided always that prior approval of the Engineer-in-charge shall be obtained in
respect of acceptability of such corrective measures without affecting the component
structurally or aesthetically.

rubbed with carborundum stone immediately on stripping the forms.

The work of form work removal should be planned and a definite scheme of
operation worked out. Formwork shall be removed carefully without jarring the
concrete, and curing of the concrete shall be commenced immediately. Concrete
surfaces to be exposed shall, where required by the Engineer-in-Charge, be
rubbed down with carborundum stone or bush-hammer to obtain a smooth and
even finish. Where the concrete requires plastering or other finish later, the
concrete surface shall be immediately hacked lightly all over as directed by the
Engineer-in-Charge. No extra charge will be allowed to the Contractor for such
work on concrete surfaces after removal of forms. The consent of the
Engineer-in-Charge shall be obtained in writing in all cases before any shuttering is
removed. The contractor must notify the Engineer-in- Charge well in advance to
enable him to inspect the concrete, if he so desires. The contractor shall record in
any approved manner, the date on which concrete is placed in each part of the work
and the date on which the formwork is removed there from and have this record

any visual aberration or bad patches and/or bands. The contractor shall be deemed
to have included the cost of such operation in his quoted rates and no claim
whatsoever shall be entertained at a later date.
The formed finished concrete surfaces shall be free from honeycomb, blemishes,
holes, surface defects, etc. In no case such defects shall exceed 200mm in any
direction for individual spots or the continued area of such defects shall not exceed
0.2% of the entire area of related surface. Any variation beyond this limit shall be
considered as a substandard work and shall be rejected.
Special care shall be taken to ensure that no stains are left on the formed concrete
either from formwork or exposed reinforcement bars. Such stains shall be removed
by the contractor at no extra cost so as to match with adjoining concrete surfaces to
the satisfaction of the Engineer- in- charge.

these aspects of extra high level quality assurance system.

8.2 QUALITY ASSURANCE MANUAL

The tables given in Annexure - QA shows the tentative Quality Assurance Plan for
testing some typical materials to be used in this work. QAP is given in 4 columns
indicating the name of the test, frequency of testing, check level, Referred codes.
The levels shown under the check level are defined as below.

a. Level 1 indicates the Manufacturers Test Certificate (MTC) or the tests
performed by the contractor at his own level before requesting the
department for accepting the material for its approval .

b. Level 2 (2A or 2B) indicates the tests to be conducted in order to ensure
the suitability of the material being used. Level 2 is classified in two
categories i.e. Level 2A for the tests conducted at site laboratory and level
2B for the tests conducted outside the site laboratory as necessary
facilities cannot be made available at site.

c. Level 3 indicates the testing of the sensitive material from an independent
source equipped with proper controls like temperature, humidity etc.
essential for the specific material testing and also equipped with well-
qualified staff, from whom an expert opinion can be obtained.

Within the two months of start of work, the contractor shall establish a complete
site testing laboratory and arrange all relevant Indian and International codes and
standards. The contractor shall depute at least two full time qualified Engineers,

exclusively for supervising all the laboratory tests to the satisfaction of Engineer-in-
charge. The quoted rates shall include cost of all test material and their tests to be
conducted at field laboratory for the purpose of quality assurance. Similarly, for the
tests to be carried out by the external laboratories, the contractor shall supply free
of charge all the materials required for testing and the testing charges shall be
borne by the contractor. Nothing shall be paid on this account.

All the testing machines and equipment (including batching plant) shall be
calibrated prior to first use and recalibrated periodically as determined by the
Engineer-in-charge to detect errors. The calibration certificates/ charts (from an
approved laboratory) shall be submitted to the Engineer-in-charge well in advance
of execution of work. The moulds for cubes shall be checked at regular interval as
decided by Engineer-in-Charge and made to conform to specifications contained in
IS-516.

The contractor or his authorised representative shall associate in collection,
preparation forwarding and testing of such samples. In case he or his authorised
representative is not present or does not associate himself, the Engineer-in-charge
shall do the needful for getting the samples collected and tested, the results of
such tests and consequences thereof shall be binding on the contractor.

The contractor shall give not less than 7 days notice for all tests in order that the
Engineer-in-charge may be present. Two copies of all test certificates shall be
supplied by the contractor to the Engineer-in-charge for approval immediately after
the completion of the tests. Test certificates shall invariably be supplied to the
Engineer-in-charge well in advance before the materials or components are used
in the works, unless the Engineer-in-charge directs otherwise.

The Engineer-in-Charge shall be free to carry out such additional tests as may be
decided by him at his sole discretion, from time to time, in addition to those
specified in this document. The Contractor shall provide the samples and labour
for collecting the samples. Nothing extra shall be payable to the Contractor for
