Construction Material Testing

At Constrovision Engineering Consultants, our construction materials testing laboratory ensures that projects are constructed with the same quality controls and assurances with which they were designed. Our laboratory is equipped with current technology and provides a quick turn around on test results and reports. We comply with ASTM and AASHTO requirements, and our staff includes trained professionals with appropriate certifications to perform the testing that a project requires.. Construction Material Testing is critical in taking a design off a blueprint and making it a reality.

CEMENT Testing

Cement as a binder, a substance that sets and hardens independently, & can bind other material together such as steel, bricks, & many other likewise civil material. Recommended

Test for cement performed here are:

  • Consistency
  • Setting Time
  • Fineness (by dry sieving & by blaineʹs air permeability)
  • Density
  • Soundness
  • Compressive Strength

AGGREGATE Testing

Aggregate is a term for any particulate material It includes gravel, crushed stone, sand, slag recycled concrete & geosynthetic aggregate. Aggregate make upto 60-80 % of concrete mix and provide compressive strength & bulk to concrete. Aggregate are divided into either 'Coarse' or 'Fine' depending up to size of particulates.

Tests on aggregate we provide are:

  • Sieve Analysis
  • Water Absorption
  • Specific Gravity
  • Bulk Density
  • Impact Value
  • Crushing Strength
  • Fineness Modulus (in fine aggregate) & so on.

Steel Testing

Steel is the leading construction material fo sustain ability, as it can be multi cycled endlessly with no detrimental effect on its properties. It does not warp, buckle, twist, or bend and is flexible & easy to install. Because of its increased quality & ease of maintenance steel is an attractive building material. Use of Steel in Civil has enormous advantages benefits Steel structures are significantly lighter than concrete equivalents, they require less extensive foundations, which reduce the environmental impact of the build. If steel pile foundations are used, these can be extracted and recycled or reused at the end of a building's life, leaving no waste material on site. Steel is not only durable & economical but also proofs to avoid environmental harms.

Test necessary on Steel:

  • Percentage Elongation
  • Yield Stress Tensile Strength
  • Bend Test Rebend Test

Concrete Testing

Concrete is a mix of cement, fine aggregate (sand), coarse aggregate (gravel or crushed stone), and water. Concrete is the most widely used construction material in the world Important properties of concrete, governing design of a concrete mix, are strength, durability, workability, economy. So as to know the Strength of concrete, a part of concrete is been tested in the form of CUBES or BEAMS.
