Industry Visit for Precast Technology
The Department of Civil Engineering had organized an Industrial visit for Precast Technology understanding and enhancing the industrial safety-related knowledge during the 48th National Safety Day (Company Safety Week) to Godrej Golf Link Construction site on 8th March 2019.
This was a very fruitful visit which helped the students in understanding Pre-cast fabrication and Construction related safety hazards and the precautions taken to mitigate these hazards. Mrs. Pallavi Singh briefed us all about the safety precaution with various kinds of safety jackets, hand gloves, shoes and helmet used. Students were able to get a first-hand understanding of these safety-related kits in the Safety Mela which was organized to celebrate Safety Week.
Mr. Nikhil Jain, Engineer Precast Technology unit of Godrej accompanied the students to the fabrication site and explained the various steps and techniques involved in the pre-casting of various structural members. Students learned about the vibrating and non-vibrating types tilting table, magnetic form work which is used for casting of members and how to adjust for the required size. They also learnt about the use of lifting hooks, needle vibration. They also understood the concept of stripping time and what are its governing factors. Vapor curing system had been installed to accelerate the curing and hence reduced the stripping time.
Students also learnt about the connections in precast members which are the most important part of pre-casting, proper connections are necessary for proper joints and good finishing. Instead of dowel tube, they are using NMB sleeve which is a new Japan technology at the overlapping where the overlapping length is large.
Under the support and guidance of Ms. Sweety Rajput (HOD, Department of Civil Engineering) and two faculty members, Mr. Neeraj Kumar Verma and Mr. Satyam Garg had coordinated and accompanied the students to Godrej site at Sector 27, Greater Noida.
