FOR PILE FOUNDATION WORKS
Section : GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR IMPLEMENTATION

1.

Details of categories of check codes A, B & C including accepting and deviation dispositioning authorities are indicated
at Annexure-I.

2.

GETCO specification shall mean GETCO technical specification, approved drawings/data sheets and A/T
provisions applicable for the specific contract.
3.

Acceptance criteria and permissible limits for certain tests are indicated at Annexure-II. For balance tests, site to
verify the same with respect to GETCO specification, relevant Indian Standards and/or prevalent code of practice.

4.

It is clarified that the tests indicated at column 2 of this FQP i.e. against column "Component operation & Description
of Test," are only generally required to be conducted. However, GETCO reserves the right to carry-out any
additional tests at any stage if the situation so warrants.

5.

GETCO site representative shall witness all the tests conducted by the contractor as mentioned in this FQP.
However, in case of tests conducted in the GETCO approved lab, it is preferred to witness the tests in the lab
itself, if possible.

6.

Head of Construction Division shall approve testing laboratory before accepting the test results from the lab.

7.

Head of Construction Division shall approve the sources for cement, coarse aggregate, fine aggregate & water before
actual utilisation.

8.

All the testing & measuring equipments used by the contractor for testing are required to be calibrated. A copy
of valid calibration report shall be retained by GETCO as records.

9.

Classification of foundations shall be approved by GETCO based on the Joint Inspection Report & soil
investigation reports.

10.

Curing of concrete work should be continued for a minimum period of 10 days.

11.

Zone-IV fine aggregate shall not be used for concreting work.

CEMENT

12.1

In case supply of cement is in the scope of the contractor, the same shall be procured from sources approved by
GETCO site and got tested at site on sample basis for specified acceptance tests as specified in this FQP at a
reputed Third Party Lab approved by GETCO site.

12.2

The samples of cement for site testing shall be taken within three weeks of the delivery and all the tests shall be
commenced within one week of sampling.

13.

REINFORCEMENT STEEL

13.1

In case supply of reinforcement steel is in the scope of the contractor, the same shall be procured from the main producers
i.e. SAIL, TISCO, IISCO or Rashtriya Ispat Nigam or the rerollers approved by main producers. The reinforcement
steel shall be got tested at site on sample basis for specified acceptance tests as specified in this FQP at a reputed
Third Party Lab approved by GETCO site.

13.2

The results of the testing of cement and reinforcement steel referred to in 13.1 and 14.1 above shall be got approved
from GETCO site before cement and reinforcement steel are put to use. However, in exceptional cases due to
exigencies of work., GETCO site may authorise the contractor to use Cement and Reinforcement Steel even before the
test results are received. However, in all such cases, if the test results subsequently received are found to be not
complying with the specified acceptance criteria, the contractor shall have to dismantle and recast all such foundations
cast with such non-conforming materials at his own cost. Confirmation to this effect shall be obtained from the
contractor by the Project authorities beforehand in all such cases.

CONCRETE CUBE TEST


For nominal (volumetric) concrete mixes, compressive strength for 1:1:3 (cement : sand : Coarse aggregate)
concrete shall be 265 kg/cm2 for 28 days and for 1:2:4 nominal mix, it shall be 210kg/cm2.

FOR

NOMINAL

MIX

a)

The average of the strength of three specimen be accepted as the compressive strength of the concrete,
provided the strength of any individual cube shall neither be less than 70% nor higher than 130%
of the specified strength.

b)

If the actual average strength of accepted sample exceeds specified strength by more than 30%,
the Engineer-in-charge, if he so desires, may further investigate the matter. However, if the strength
of any individual cube exceeds more than 30% of specified strength, it will be restricted to 30%
only for computation of strength.

c)

If the actual average strength of accepted sample is equal to or higher than specified strength upto
30%, then strength of the concrete shall be considered in order and the concrete shall be accepted
at ful rates.

d)

If the actual average strength of accepted sample is less than specified strength but not less than
70% of the specified strength, the concrete may be accepted at reduced rate at the discretion of
Engineer-in-Charge.

e)

(G)

If the actual average strength of accepted sample is less than 70% of specified strength, the Engineerin-Charge shall reject the defective portion of work represented by sample and nothing shall be paid
for the rejected work. Remedial measures necessary to retain the structure shall be taken at the
risk and cost of contractor. If, however, the Engineer-in-Charge so desires, he may order additional
tests to be carried out to ascertain if the structure can be retained. All the charges in connection
with these additional tests shall be borne by the Contractor.

ACCEPTANCE CRITERIA FOR DESIGN MIX CONCRETE SHALL BE AS PER IS:456
