Abstract:Quality of a concrete slab or floor is highly dependent on achieving a hard and durable surface which is plane and free of cracks. The properties that the surface has are determined by the quality of the concreting operations. Furthermore, timing of these concreting operations and finishing techniques is critical. Otherwise, undesirable changes occur at the wearing surface; these may lead to soft or dusting surfaces, permeable concrete, cracking, and poor durability. To obtain a good floor, the project specifications must cover all aspects of site preparation, concreting materials, concrete mixture proportions, concreting, workmanship, and curing. Adequate supervision and inspection are required of all job operations including particularly those of finishing.
