RCC experiment

Can I use a rammer for making an RCC since i cant use a roller in a small container for molding.

RE: RCC experiment

maybe you could re-state your question so it makes sense. provide lots of details

RE: RCC experiment

cvg, im making blocks of RCC, interlocking blocks for a park here in our country, and my mold is small, if i use a roller vibrator it wont fit in a small container, and i was thinking if i can use the rammer for compaction in RCC since i can fit the rammer in the container.

RE: RCC experiment

We use hydraulic hammers for making specimens of RCC for compressive testing. How big is your mould?

RE: RCC experiment

WOW! I knew it would work. maybe the surface to be in compression would be slightly be smaller, the depth is 17 cm. THANKS FOR SHARING!!
