even though the structure of pe jaw crusher is relatively simple, all processing procedures require precise processing, for example: only precise machining, heat treatment and flaw inspection can guarantee the eccentric shaft to possess sufficient strength and rigidity; only precise blanking can guarantee the weights and structures of flywheel and grooved wheel to enhance the operating balance of the jaw crusher.

the objective of this standard is to specify the standard for design and construction of substation civil infrastructure to ensure: • that the relevant australian and state legal requirements are met; • that the requirements of the national electricity rules are met; • personnel and public safety; • ease in operation and maintenance;
why compact? there are five principle reasons to compact soil: increases load-bearing capacity prevents soil settlement and frost damage provides stability reduces water seepage, swelling and contraction reduces settling of soil types of compaction there are four types of compaction effort on soil or asphalt: vibration impact kneading
figure 41: 50 tonne marco roller large highway rollers can apply a load up to five tonnes through each of seven or nine pneumatic tyres at inflation pressures up to 0.9 mpa. this is adequate to prove most granular layers within a light duty aircraft pavement and the sub-base under a rigid pavement’s concrete
use an edging trowel around the entire perimeter of the concrete which will also compact the edges of the concrete. for larger slabs, use a jointing trowel to provide control joints at 150cm intervals, by creating a straight groove around 2cm deep in the slab. the inclusion of control joints will control cracking.
the 40 is the compressive requirement of 40 n/mm² of a crushed 100m concrete core and the 50 is a compressive requirement of 50 n/mm² for a crushed concrete cube. therefore using the method of testing using concrete cubes, the tested compressive strength
fill the mold in three equal layers by volume, not by height. rod each layer 25 times with a bullet-tipped 5/8-inch diameter rod to compact each layer. after filling and rodding, raise the cone to allow the concrete to subside. the distance the concrete subsides, or slumps, is based on its consistency.
step 2. spray down the slab area with water. don't spray so much water that puddles form, but you do want the soil to have an even, dark brown coloring. aim your hose spray into the air, about 5 inches over the surface of the soil as you spray, rather then spraying the water directly into the soil.
• the loading should be done without slackening and increased continuously at a rate of 140 kg/sq.cm./min. until the concrete cube breaks down or is crushed and no additional load can be sustained. • the appearance of concrete after failure and the observations of the failures must be recorded. 7. acceptance criteria for compressive strength:
a good base is everything! concrete will crack and crumble if it’s not poured over a solid, stable base. bringing in 4 to 6-in. of a good compact-able base is a good rule of thumb, but the exact amount of base a concrete driveway needs depends on the condition of the existing soil, the climate, and what you plan to park on your driveway.
most road base material approved by the local dot is suitable for the subbase. “we use 6 to 8 inches of crusher run,” says steve lloyd, lloyd concrete services, forest, va. “it includes lots of fines and we compact it to 98%. we will not use #57 stone, that’s like trying to place a slab on marbles.
the proper way to build a driveway is to excavate (depending on design load) from 1-3 feet down (generally about 12-18') depending on what your existing soil conditions are, place a structural geotextile if still poor (soft or muddy or clayey) conditions at that depth, then place and compact subbase material (which may be a crushed rock or a gravel, free-draining, typically 2' minus) up to
rammed earth walls are constructed by ramming a mixture of selected aggregates, including gravel, sand, silt and a small amount of clay, into place between flat panels called formwork. traditional technology repeatedly rammed the end of a wooden pole into the earth mixture to compress it. modern technology replaces the pole with a mechanical ram.
concrete strength also comes into play, but most slab concrete is around 3000 to 4000 psi, so it's not a major factor. the tensile strength of concrete is typically taken as 10 to 15% of the compressive strength, so only about 400 or 500 psi. compare that to the tensile strength of grade 60 rebar, which is 60,000 psi.
concrete-encased ducts: support ducts on duct separators. 1. separator installation: space separators close enough to prevent sagging and deforming of ducts, with not less than 5 spacers per 20 feet of duct. secure separators to earth and to ducts to prevent floating during concreting. stagger separators approximately between tiers.

roller compacted concrete (rcc) was originally limited to the sub-base of roads and airfield pavements, being called lean concrete or dry lean concrete. this type of concrete has become very popular due to the fact that it is a simple material to produce and because it can be placed fast while producing a great surface.
