At the dawn of the new millennium, many new homes were still being built to a formula little changed since the Victorian era, with solid concrete slabs downstairs and boarded 8x2inch timber joists 'up top'. But both types suffered from significant drawbacks. Timber floors were constrained by stunted spans
The building floor slab was constructed using clay brick hollow pot technology. This technology introduces hollow clay bricks into the slab .The hollow parts reduce the volume of the concrete hence reduces the cost as compared to the usual reinforced concrete slab which is usually 150mm thick. Hollow pot
The concrete is laid the same way but hollow pots are added to reduce weight. This blocks are hollow The suspended concrete floor hollow pots are either clay or concrete blocks. This blocks are eight When the suspended slab form work is ready, the laying of the hollow pots commences. The external
The gourd provides a natural hollow for bees, but most gourds are too small for an average bee colony, so that their use often induces swarming. There are two types The cheapest and most durable of all the traditional hives is the clay pot, very popular especially in the northern savannah of West Africa. The pot is similar
Hollow blocks are used to fill portions of the slab thickness; this results in deeper arm for the reinforcement while saving the amount of concrete and hence the own weight of the slab. The reinforcement is located between the blocks inside the ribs. Clay pot or blocks can be used. Blocks may be concrete
Keywords: Cost variation, Hollow slabs, Lagos state, Reinforced concrete, Solid slab, Waffle floor. 1. . monolithic solid slab and hollow clay pot slab will be .. The advantage of this method in material saving, good quality control, and delivery in time and within cost, can not be compared to the in-situ construction. Hollow
of the slab. Thus, voids or holes are formed within the slab system. These also give a significant advantage over the conventional solid slabs in terms . Clay Pot Slab\. Hollow (Ribbed) floors are floors eco- nomically designed and constructed using hollow blocks, removable foams or permanent voids former such as clay.
Most conventional throwing involves the production of hollow forms, and the rotating, centered clay must be "opened" by one or more methods. The mechanics of opening are relatively simple - a centered hole is forced into the hump to a suitable depth, leaving enough clay beneath the opening for the base of the pot.
Since most community colleges and recreation centers offer ceramics classes, you should take advantage of this training before the inevitable budget cuts of the future eliminate these programs. Pinch Pots: This is how students get introduced to pottery techniques. Roll a smooth, symmetrical ball of clay, then stick your
decreased dead load of the slab. B. MATERIALS SELECTION AS PER NEED AND DESIGN. Light weight, inert and inexpensive materials such as low grade Mangalore tiles, Burnt Clay Bricks, Hollow Concrete blocks, Stabilized Mud blocks/ Hollow Mud blocks, Clay pots, Coconut shells etc. can be used as filler materials.
India, to construct reinforced floor/roof slab with various materials as filler material. The paper of the slab. An internal cavity can be provided between the filler material which adds an extra advantage; Bricks, Hollow Concrete blocks, Stabilized Mud blocks/ Hollow Mud blocks, Clay pots, Coconut shells etc. can be used
The first step of pressing the rough ball of clay downward and inward into perfect rotational symmetry is called centring the clay—a most important skill to master before the next steps: opening (making a centred hollow into the solid ball of clay), flooring (making the flat or rounded bottom inside the pot), throwing or pulling
