CHAPTER 16 - RCC AND FORM WORK

Notes: 1. Rates include- (a) Lead up to 100 m for all materials for all items. (b) Cost of all material including cost of water. (c) All lifts for all materials unless specified otherwise. (d) Mixing of concrete in mixer. (e) Mechanical vibration of concrete. (f) Finishing to all surfaces of R.C.C. (g) Cost of curing 2. (a) Rates are for metal other than black trap, basalt or granite. (b) Blasting charges for metal are payable as per Item 514 for the quantity required vide appendix-1 (c) Extra rate for use of black trap, basalt or granite is payable as per item 733. 3. Though separate rate for centring, shuttering and formwork has been specified in respect of this chapter, however in principle all the rates given in this chapter are inclusive of formwork. 4. For nominal mix (volumetric mix concrete) the boxes of internal size 35x25 and 40 cm depth shall be used for measuring sand and aggregate. (a) The proportion of materials for nominal mix shall be used as given in table 13 of specification Vol. I para 7.5.2.4.1 of page 7- 32. It should be on the basis of weight of cement & aggregates. Nominal mix proportion by volume under special circumstances only may be permitted by the Superintending Engineer under written orders before commencing the work. A rough guide for the nominal mix proportion by volume will be 1 : 5 : 10,1 : 4 : 8, 1 : 3 : 6,1 : 2 : 4,1 : 1.5 : 3, 1 : 1 : 2, for M-5,M-7.5, M-10,M-15, M-20, & M-25 concrete respectively.

( b) For cement which normally comes in bag and used by weight ,volume shall be worked out taking 50 kg. of cement as 0.035 cum. in volume .The quantity of water per 50 kg. (0.035 cum.) of cement shall be as specified in table-13 of specification. 5 The proportioning of sand shall be done on the basis of its dry volume and in case of damp sand, allowance or bulkage shall be made as given in note 4 of chapter 6 "Mortars". The rates for form work include-(a) All lifts and all leads unless otherwise specified. (b) Providing, erection and stripping of shuttering, propping and centring and strutting.

6.

(c) Coating with oil to prevent adhesion of concrete with shuttering, inclusive of cost of refined pale paraffin mineral oil / raw linseed oil, after thoroughly cleaning the surface. 7. The form work shall be of timber, timber coated with metal sheet lining, plywood, steel (steel plates stiffened with steel angles) or any other material depending upon the requirement of work. Measurements: - R.C.C. (i) Dimensions shall be measured to nearest 0.01 m. except for the thickness of slab which shall be measured to nearest 0.005 m. The areas shall be worked out to nearest 0.01 sq. m. The cubical contents shall be worked out to nearest 0.01 cum. (ii) No deduction shall be made for the following:(a) Ends of dissimilar materials for example, beams, posts, girders, rafters, purlins, trusses, corbels and step up to 0.5 sq. m in cross section; (b) Opening up to 0.1 sq. m in area (in calculating area of an opening, the thickness of any separate lintel or sill shall be included in height. No extra labour for forming such openings or voids shall be measured); (c) Volume occupied by reinforcement; (d) Volume occupied by pipes, conduits, sheathing, etc. not exceeding 0.1 sq. m. each in cross sectional area; and (e) Moulds, drip moulding, chamfers, splays, rounded or coved angles, beds, grooves and rebates up to 10 cm in width or 15 cm in girth. (iii) Columns shall be measured from top of column base to underside of first floor slab and subsequently from top of floor slab to underside of floor slab above. (iv) In case of columns for flat slabs, flare of column shall be included with column for measurement. (v) Beams shall be measured from face to face of columns and shall include haunches, if any, between columns and beams. The depth of beams shall be measured from bottom of slab to bottom of the beam except in case of inverted beams where it shall be measured from top of slab to top of beam. Form work(vi) Dimensions shall be measured to nearest 0.01 m and area shall be worked out to nearest 0.01 sq. m. (vii) Form work shall be measured as the actual surface in contact with the concrete or any other material requiring form work. (viii)No deduction shall be made for opening up to 0.4-sq. m. 9.
