What is RMC(Ready Mix Concrete)?
Ready mix concrete that is concrete that is manufactured in a factory or batching plant, according to a set recipe, and then delivered to a work site by truck mounted in–
transit mixers. This results in a precise mixture, allowing specialty concrete mixtures to be developed and implemented on construction sites. The first ready-mix factory was built in the 1930s, but the industry did not begin to expand significantly until the 1960s, and it has continued to grow since then. It is often preferred over on-site concrete mixing because of the precision of the mixture and reduced work site confusion. Ready-mix concrete, or RMC as it is popularly called, refers to concrete that is specifically manufactured for delivery to the customer’s construction site in a freshly mixed and plastic or unhardened state.
Scope of Ready to Mix Concrete:
Long, Long years ago, their where simple houses but in 21st Century we can see houses constructed in R.C.C. Therefore concrete got more importance then any other construction material. So the use of concrete is increasing day by day. For construction most of the contractors and builders have to collect the raw materials required for the construction before starting actual works. These materials should be stored at the site properly. This technique can be possible when there will bemoreempty space at the construction site which is not possible in congested areas. At this time there is one solution toovercome all these problems that is nothing READYMIX CONCRETE by using R.M.C we can save the time and money required
for the labours.
In following places ready mix concrete can be used:
1. Major concerting projects like dams, roads, bridges, tunnels, canals etc.
2. for concreting in congested areas where storage of materials is not possible.
3. Sites where intensity of traffic makes problems.
4. When supervisor and labour staff is less.
5. To reduce the time required for construction etc.
6. Huge industrial and residential projects.
