Importance of adequate mixing water is stressed and need for strict attention to mix and gradation of a must meet specifications and tests of As gregates. Pipe T M . Reinforced concrete processes: I) the is manufactured by three general proc- e cast process, (2) machine, and (3) cen- trifuga . Reinforcement is either elliptical or circular and made up in spiral wound cages.
