• INTRODUCTION
• Concrete is one of the major components of a structure, particularly a
multi-storied structure, where in it
• accounts for 30% - 50% of the total cost. Concrete is the most universal of
all the construction material and is
• frequently considered as the most economical one and is strong and
durable material. The quality of concrete has
• also a very direct effect on the strength & durability of the structure as a
whole. There are things which found
• fewer advantages to produce concrete on a worksite than RMC. Bags of
cement, sand, aggregate (gravel) &
• possibly other additives must be delivered to the construction area. A
supply of clean water is also necessary,
• along with a rented concrete mixing hopper. Even after all the dusty &
heavy ingredients have been loaded into
• the hopper, one small error in the wet/dry ratio of ingredients can render
an entire batch of concrete unusable.
• Quality of concrete is under threat for various reasons resulting in
deficient product.

Quality Control Of RMC
Statistical Quality Control can be
effectively applied to RMC industry for online (during production) and
also offline (before and after production)
quality monitoring and control.
Forward control basically deals with procedures of quality control to be
followed before the production
process. This covers (i) materials storage, (ii) monitoring of quality of
materials, (iii) modification of mix design,
(iv) Plant maintenance, (v) calibration of equipment and (vi) plant and
transit mixer condition.
Immediate control is concerned with instant action to control the
quality of concrete during
production or that of deliveries closely following production. This
covers (i) weighing – correct reading of batch
data and accurate weighing, (ii) visual observation and testing of
concrete during production and delivery
(assessment of uniformity, cohesion, workability, adjustment of water
content

Testing Of Raw material
Testing of Raw Materials, Fresh Concrete and Hardened Concrete: The
incoming materials particularly raw
materials like cement, coarse aggregate 10mm, coarse aggregate 20mm, fine
aggregate, admixtures should be
subjected to testing as per adopted acceptance sampling plan. A scheme for
the basic tests to be conducted for
raw materials, fresh concrete and hardened concrete (Annexure IV) along
with their frequency of testing.
1) Mix Design: This is the step done the mix design is very important step. The
various quantity of material is
decided at this step. The tested or received material is supplied to the
laboratory where Mix design is done. This
laboratory should be approved or authorized to do the mix design.
2) Approved by Authority: In this step the manager in charge or panel of
directors should approve the Mix

Testing Of Fresh Concrete & Hardened Concrete
• from mix design unit is supplied, and this unit casts the cubes as per given
mix design & verifies the target
strength, if target strength, is satisfactory, then this Mix design is confirmed &
data is send to central Mixture
• plant as recipes. And if target strength is unsatisfactory then the data from
Mix design is sand back for revision/redesign or resolutio. Receive in Coming
Material:This step gives the idea to inventory stock, As and when required
the material
i.e. cement, sand, aggregates admixture is purchased.
Testing and Inspection: This is the stage, where the quality of incoming material
is checked, The three
various activities are done quality checking, visual checks are the performed,
and if the same material from same
source is coming at the stock, and the testing as per IS code is previously done.
Acceptance sampling is next step
this gives the requirement of field tests e.g. fields tests on aggregates & cement
if necessary are carried out. But
if any material coming from new location or material with new brand, the
laboratory testing becomes necessary
