Example text

Working with the material Concrete is compacted by vibration when poured in order to remove air voids in the mix and to achieve an even distribution of the material in the formwork. Too little compaction of the wet material can result in air pockets being left in the mix, weakening the concrete. Too much compaction brings the fine aggregate to the surface, making the surface crumbly, and causing surface staining. A vibrating instrument, inserted into the wet concrete, is used to ensure an even consistency.

Most shrinkage of the material occurs, as creep, during the first year after casting. • Moisture movement occurs but is less significant than timber. • Slightly permeable to water. • It will not set properly if the air temperature approaches freezing point. If the air temperature is too high, it will set too quickly, causing cracking. A. A. Architect: Santiago Calatrava TWA Terminal, JFK Airport, New York.

Because of the loadbearing strength of lime mortar being approximately half that of cement-based mortar that would have been required for this project, the walls were thicker but, at one and a half bricks thick, are no wider than an equivalent cavity wall, but with piers which are two bricks thick. The avoidance of movement joints assured the monolithic appearance and structural efficiency of this structure. In other applications of loadbearing masonry, the positioning of the thermal insulation in the centre of the wall allows the benefits of thermal mass to be used within the building as well as a weathering surface on the outside, along with the possibility of the masonry being exposed within the building.
