The Civil Engineering department organized a visit to Hot Mix Plant on 8th Feb. 2019. Hot Mix Plants are constructed to prepare the mix of bitumen & different size of aggregates at controlled temperature condition.
The purpose of this visit was to understand about the quality & suitability of different materials & their mixing and batching technique which is used as construction material in the construction of different layers of pavement structure. This information is very important for the students of civil engineering because they have to tackle the problems related the construction materials in future after joining any of the road construction company. This visit also covers various purposes like plant capacity & its working, accessibility of plant from construction site & remedial measures regarding the material mix. It made the students understand about the variation in physical properties of the material mix at plant & construction site.
