of pockets. In addition, smaller size aggregates shall be used for concreting in this
region also.
3.26 Preformed Fillers and Joint Sealing Compound
3.26.1 Materials
Preformed filler for expansion/isolation joints shall be non-extruding and resilient type
of bitumen impregnated fibres conforming to IS:1838 (Part I).
Bitumen coat to concrete/masonry surfaces for fixing the preformed bitumen filler
strip shall conform to IS:702. Bitumen primer shall conform to IS:3384.
Sealing compound for filling the joints above the preformed bitumen filler shall
conform to Grade 'A' as per IS:1834.

3.25.1 Workmanship

The thickness of the preformed bitumen filler shall be 25mm for expansion joints and
50mm for isolation joints around foundation supporting rotatory equipment's.
Contractor shall procure the strips of the desired thickness and width in lengths as
manufactured. Assembly of small pieces/thicknesses of strips to make up the
specified size shall not be permitted.
The concrete/masonry surface shall be cleaned free from dust and any loose
particles. When the surface is dry, one coat of industrial blown type bitumen of grade
85/25 conforming to IS:702 shall be applied hot by brushing at the rate of 1.20
kg/sq.m. When the bitumen is still hot the preformed bitumen filler shall be pressed
and held in position till it completely adheres. The surface of the filler against which
further concreting/masonry work is to be done shall similarly be applied with one coat
of hot bitumen at the rate of 1.20 kg/sq.m.
Sealing compound shall be heated to a pouring consistency for enabling it to run
molten in a uniform manner into the joint. Before pouring the sealing compound, the
vertical faces of the concrete joint shall be applied hot with a coat of bitumen primer
conforming to IS: 3384 in order to improve the adhesive quality of the sealing
compound.
Expansion joints between beams/slabs shall be provided with 100mm wide x 4mm
thick mild steel plate at the soffit of RCC beams/slabs to support and prevent the
preformed joint filler from dislodging. This plate shall be welded to an edge angle of
ISA 50 x 50 x 6mm provided at the bottom corner, adjacent to the expansion joint of
one of the beams/slabs, by intermittent fillet welding. Steel surfaces shall be provided
with 2 coats of red oxide zinc chrome primer and 3 coats of synthetic enamel paint
finish.

c) If plastic theory of design is used
Drawings prepared by the VENDOR/CONTRACTOR
The VENDOR/CONTRACTOR shall prepare all fabrication and erection drawings for
the entire work. All the drawings for the entire work shall be prepared in metric units.
The drawings shall preferably be of one standard size and the details shown there in
shall be clear and legible.
All fabrication drawings shall be submitted to the GWSSB for approval.
No fabrication drawings will be accepted for GWSSB’s approval unless checked and
approved by the VENDOR/CONTRACTOR’s qualified structural engineer and
accompanied by an erection plan showing the location of all pieces detailed. The
VENDOR/CONTRACTOR shall ensure that connections are detailed to obtain ease
in erection of structures and in making field connections.
Fabrication shall be started by the VENDOR/CONTRACTOR only after GWSSB’s
approval of fabrication drawings. Approval by the GWSSB of any of the drawings
shall not relieve the VENDOR/CONTRACTOR from the responsibility for correctness
of engineering and design of connections, workmanship, fit of parts, details, material,
errors or omissions or any and all work shown thereon. The GWSSB’s approval shall
constitute approval of the size of members, dimensions and general arrangement but
shall not constitute approval of the connections between members and other details.
The drawings prepared by the VENDOR/CONTRACTOR and all subsequent
revisions etc. shall be at the cost of the VENDOR/CONTRACTOR for which no
separate payment will be made.

4.3 Fabrication
4.3.1 General
All workmanship and finish shall be of the best quality and shall conform to the best
approved method of fabrication. All materials shall be finished straight and shall be
machined/ground smooth true and square where so specified. All holes and edges
shall be free of burrs. Shearing and chipping shall be neatly and accurately done
and all portions of work exposed to view shall be neatly finished. Unless otherwise
approved by the GWSSB, reference may be made to relevant IS codes for providing
standard fabrication tolerance. Material at the shops shall be kept clean and
protected from weather.
4.3.2 Connections
Shop/field connections shall be as per approved fabrication drawings.
In case of bolted connections, taper washers or flat washers or spring washers shall
be used with bolts as necessary. In case of high strength friction grip bolts, hardened
washers be used under the nuts or the bolt heads whichever are turned to tighten the
bolts. The length of the bolt shall be such that atleast one thread of the bolt projects
beyond the nut, except in case of high strength friction grip bolts where this projection
shall be at least three times the pitch of the thread.
In all cases where bearing is critical, the unthreaded portion of bolt shall bear on the
members assembled. A washer of adequate thickness may be provided to exclude
the threads from the bearing thickness, if a longer grip bolt has to be used for this
purpose.
All connections and splices shall be designed for full strength of members or loads.
Column splices shall be designed for the full tensile strength of the minimum cross
section at the splice.
All bolts, nuts, washers, electrodes, screws etc., shall be supplied/brought to site
10% in excess of the requirement in each category and size. Rates shall cover the
cost of this extra quantity.
All members likely to collect rain water shall have drain holes provided.
4.3.3 Straightening
All materials, shall be straight and, if necessary, before being worked shall be
straightened and/or flattened by pressure and shall be free from twists. Heating or
forging shall not be resorted to without the prior approval of the GWSSB in writing.
4.3.4 Rolling and Forming
Plates, channels, R.S.J. etc., for circular bins, bunkers, hoppers, gantry girders, etc.,
shall be accurately laid off and rolled or formed to required profile/shape as called for
on the drawings. Adjacent sections shall be match-marked to facilitate accurate
assembly, welding and erection in the field.
4.3.5 High Strength Friction Grip Bolting
Inspection after tightening of bolts shall be carried out as stipulated in the appropriate
standards depending upon the method of tightening and the type of bolt used.
