Clause 1006

CEMENT
This clause shall read as follows:
Cement to be used in bridge structures shall conform to the following standard.
IS: 12269 Specification for 53 Grade ordinary Portland cement.
For other works ordinary Portland cement 33 grade conforming to IS: 269 or Ordinary Portland
cement 43 grade, conforming to IS 8112 can be used with the prior approval of the Engineer.

Minimum cement content mentioned elsewhere from durability considerations shall not be
reduced. From strength considerations, these cements shall be used with a certain caution as
high early strengths of cements in the 1 to 28 day range can be achieved by finer grinding and
higher constituent ratio for C3S/C2S, where C3S is Tricalcium Silicate and C2S is Dicalcium
Silicate. In such cements, the further growth of strength beyond say 4 weeks may be much
lower than that traditionally expected. Therefore, further strength tests shall be carried out for
56 and 90 days to fine tune the mix design from strength considerations directed by the
Engineer.
Total chloride content in cement shall not exceed 0.05 percent by mass of cement. Total
sulphur content calculated as sulphuric anhydride (SO3) shall in no case exceed 2.5 percent
and 3 percent when Tri-calcium aluminate percent by mass is up to 5 or greater than 5
respectively.
Manufactures test certificate shall be submitted to the Engineer by the Contractor for every
consignment of cement. The certificate should cover all the tests for chemical requirements,
physical requirements and chloride content as per the provisions of IS: 12269.
Independent tests of samples drawn from the consignment shall be carried out at the
site laboratory or in an independent laboratory approved by the Engineer, immediately after
delivery. The following properties shall be tested.
i)

Setting Time

ii) Compressive Strength


The cost of the tests shall be borne by the Contractor. In case the cement is stored
beyond 90 days from the date of delivery at site, the following tests shall be carried
out at the site laboratory before the cement is used.
i)

Setting Time

ii) Compressive strength.


Lot size for independent testing of cement at site shall be the quantity received at

Surface irregularities permitted for the various classes of finishes are termed either 'abrupt' or
'gradual' Fins or offsets caused by displaced or misplaced form sheeting, lining or form
sections, by loose knots in form lumber or by otherwise defective form lumber are considered
abrupt irregularities. All other cases are described as gradual irregularities. Gradual
irregularities will be measured with a template consisting of a straight edge for plain surfaces of
its equivalent for curved surfaces. The length of template for testing gradual irregularities in
formed surfaces shall be 1.5 m in length, the permissible gradual irregularities being measured
over this length of the template.

Finish F1, F2 and F2 shall describe formed surfaces.


Finish U1, U2 and U3 shall describe unformed surfaces.
Class F1I Finish
The class F1 finish shall apply to all formed surfaces for which class F2 or F3 is not specified.
It shall generally be formed by steel frame mounted with steel sheet. It shall be so constructed
that there shall he no loss of material from the concrete during placement and compaction.
After hardening, the concrete shall be in the required positions and shall have the shape and
dimensions called for in the drawings. Any abrupt irregularities shall not exceed 10m. All fins
and drifts in excess of the above limits shall be made good by chipping and grinding, if required,
by the Engineer. Small blemishes caused by entrapped air or water may be expected but
surface shall be free from voids, honeycombing or other large blemishes. Class Fl finish shall
be generally specified for al surfaces buried in ground or not visible during service or for
surfaces that are to receive further treatment such as plastering etc. Unless otherwise specified
in the item of Bill of Quantity the surface finish shall be understood to be Class Fl.
Class F2 Finish
Class F-2 finish shall be obtained by use of properly designed forms with steel lining. The
abrupt irregularities shall not exceed 5mm and gradual irregularities shall be less than 8 mm.
Small blemishes caused by entrapped air or water may be permitted but the surface shall be
free from honeycombing. voids and large blemishes. Surface irregularities in excess of those
stipulated shall be removed by chipping or rubbing with abrasive stone.
Class F3 Finish
Class F3 finish shall be formed by specially designed close jointed rigid forms having lining or
high quality form plywood. The surface irregularities shall be limited to nil for abrupt irregularities
and 3mm for gradual irregularities. Class F3 finish may be obtained from class F2 finish by
carefully removing all abrupt irregularities including fins and projections by rubbing / grinding. If
steel forms are used they shall have steel sheet backing faced with plywood.
In addition, finish F3 shall include filling air holes with mortar and treatment of the entire,
surface with sack rubbed finish. It shall also include cleaning of lose and adhering debris. For a
sack: rubbed finish, the surface shall be prepared within two days after removal of the forms.
The surface shall be wetted and allowed to dry slightly before mortar is applied by sack
rubbing. The mortar used shall consist of one part cement to one and one half parts by volume
of fine (IS No. 16 mesh) sand. Only sufficient mixing water to give the mortar a workable
consistency shall be used. The mortar shall then be rubbed over the surface with a fine burlap
or linen cloth so as to fill all the surface voids. The mortar in the voids shall be allowed to stiffen
and solidify after which the whole surface shall be wiped clean with clean burlap such that all
air holes etc., refilled and the entire surface presents a uniform appearance without air holes,
irregularities etc.
Class U1 Finish
This is the screened finish used on surfaces over which other finishes such as wearing coats
etc. are being placed. It is also the first step in the formation of U2 and U3 finishes. The
finishing operation, consists of leveling and screening the concrete to produce an even and
uniform surface so that the gradual irregularities are not greater than 5mrn. Surplus concrete
should be removed immediately after consolidation by striking it off with a sawing motion of a
straight edge or template across a wood or metal strip that has been set as guide. Unless the
drawings specify a horizontal surface or show the slope required, the tops of narrow surfaces
such as stair treads walls, curbs and parapets shall be sloped approximately 10mm per
300mm width. Surfaces to be covered with concrete topping, terrazzo, and similar surfaces

(108)World Bank Package No.-WBP/PH-I/47/11-12

shall be smooth screened and levelled to produce even surfaces, irregularities not exceeding
5mm.
Class U2 Finish
This is a floated finish used on all outdoor-unformed surfaces not prominently exposed to view
such as tops of piers etc. The floating may be done by hand or power driven equipment. It
should not however be started until some stiffening has taken place in the surface concrete and
the moisture film or shine has disappeared. The floating should work the concrete no more than
is necessary to produce a surface that is free from screed marks. All joints and edges should
be finished with edging tools. It shall include the repair of gradual irregularities exceeding 5mm.
All abrupt irregularities shall also be repaired unless a roughened texture is specified.
Class U3 Finish
This is a trowelled finish used on all surfaces exposed to view at close quarters such as tops of
parapets and kerbs etc. Steel trowelling should not be started until after the moisture film and
shine have completely disappeared from the floated surface and the concrete has hardened
enough to prevent an execs of ifne materials and water from being worked to the surface.
Excessive trowelling especially if started too soon tends to produce crazing and lack of
durability. Too long a delay with result in a surface too hard for proper finishing. Steel trowelling
should be performed with a first pressure that will flatten and smoothen the sandy surface free
of blemishes, ripples and trowel mark. It shall include the repair of all abrupt irregularities and
the repair of gradual irregularities exceeding 5mm. It shall also include finishing the joints and
the edges of concrete with edging tools."
