In my previous post, i talked about reinforcement iron rod and it's advantages in construction.
This time around am going to talk about the Casting of the Mat reinforcement iron rod for blinding of the foundation which was done with a concrete mixing ratio, ratio 1:3:6... We have different kinds of concrete mixing ratio which are 1:5:10 which is mass concrete, 1:2:4, 1:3:6, 1:1/2:3 etc.. so depending on the work load and design of a particular buildings. We have different factors that determine the type of foundation to use iron rod and concrete in the sub-structure, sometimes in a loosed soil, water locked area etc and also it can be used in superstructure.
This is the pouring process, the concrete is transported after mixing with wheelbarrow and head-pan to the area needed.
Batching of the materials,
1:3:6. This means 1head-pan of cement to 3head-pan of sharp sand and 6 head-pan of granite.
This is the ratio in which it is mixed
Mixing of the concrete after batching
The labourer here is moving the mixed concrete to the place where is needed.
The concrete is poured into the wheelbarrow to be poured inside the foundation prepared.
The concrete poured is been spread with handtrowel tapped with range to give it desire design.
This is process of moving the concrete mixed to the foundation.
This is the final outcome for the foundation blinding. Remain setting of block work.

Nice followup to your previous post on rebar (or 'reo' as we call it here in Australia).

We Aussies like things that are easy
Smiled😊, we do too but bad government spoiling things for engineers. How are you doing?
@ligayagardener what's that? What you writing?
Governments are generally bad.
