Ready Mixed Concrete (RMC) is one of the most popular building materials in construction industry nowadays and its demand keeps an increasing rate in recent years. The reasons for its growing popularity over site mixed concrete are the several benefits that RMC offer in terms of quality, convenience, consistency and economy of concrete mix. Today, even for small constructions such as an individual housing, ready mixed concrete is preferred wherever available. Now, the project developers find it easier to place orders for the supply of concrete of desired mix at their sites instead of setting up their own production units and hiring staff for management and control of these units. However, the main equipment behind the successful use and popularity of RMC are the transit mixers that supply the concrete to desired locations in the plastic stage.
Vrindavan Chandrodaya Mandir is the world's tallest temple under-construction at Vrindavan, Mathura, India. At cost of ?300 crore it will be one of the most expensively built temples in world by ISKCON Bangalore. The temple has a footprint of about 5 acres and rises to a height of about 700 feet (213 meters or 70 floors) and a built-up area of 5, 40,000 sq. ft. The temple is planned to be vibrant with festivals and religious activities throughout the year. It is going to be a must watch place for every Indian.
While some view shotcrete simply as another means of placing concrete and mortar, it is much more than that. Modern shotcrete technology, as used in infrastructure rehabilitation, is a sophisticated process that can provide high-quality, durable solutions for repair/retrofit challenges that likely couldn't be met as effectively, either technically and/or economically, with conventionally cast concrete procedures. Shotcrete is now a mature technology for a wide range of new construction and repair/retrofit applications.
Pavement distresses contribute to pavement failure in different ways. The most common flexible pavement distresses are cracking, roughness, weathering, raveling, rutting, and bleeding. Cracking is the most common, and often the first distress encountered in an asphalt pavement. It occurs when a stress is built up in surface layers that exceeds the tensile or shear strength of the pavement causing a fissure or crack to develop. Pavement cracking shows up in many forms: transverse, longitudinal, block and fatigue (alligator) cracks.
The production of concrete blocks consists of four basic processes: mixing, moulding, curing, and cubing. In moulding process, the concrete mix is fed into the appropriate mould which is then subjected to vibration and compaction. This process results in a dense, high-strength concrete block.

Placement of concrete in inaccessible areas has necessitated the use of pumps in today's construction. Especially with the growth of ready mixed concrete, the need for pumping has increased manifold. While pumping is very efficient and reliable means of placing concrete, a number of finer aspects can affect the pumping operation. Factors including pump line length, bends in the line, type of line, size of line, and line layout; all related to pump lines and the concrete mixture parameters affect the effective working of a concrete pump.
