excavations made for column pits, trenches and basements shall be treated with the
chemicals emulsion mentioned above at 5 litres per sq. meters of surface area.

3.03 Treatment to Backfill Earth :

After the column foundations, wall foundations and retaining walls of the basement come
up, the backfill in immediate contact with the foundation structure shall be treated with
chemical emulsion at the rate of 15 litres/m2 of the vertical face of the substructure of
each side. The earth is usually spread in layers and treatment shall be carried out in
similar stages. The chemical emulsion shall be directed towards the concrete or
masonary surface of the columns and walls so that the earth in contract with these
surfaces is well treated with chemicals.

3.04 Treatment to RCC Framed Structures :

The treatment described in 2 and 3 above applies essentially to masonary foundations


where there are voids in the joints through which termites can seek entry into the
superstructure. Hence the foundations require to be completely enveloped by a
chemical barrier. In the case of RCC framed structures wit columns and plinth beams
and RCC basements the concrete mix is rich and dense (being 1:2:4 or M. 150 or
richer), it is unnecessary to start the treatment from the bottom of excavation start at a
depth of 50 cm. below ground level. From this depth, the back fill around the columns,
beams and RCC basement walls shall be treated at the rate of 15 / m 2. of the vertical
surface. The other details of the treatment shall be as laid down in 3 above.

inner wall surfaces from the ground level of the filled earth surface. To achieve this, a
small channel 3 x 3 cm. shall be made at all junctions of wall and columns with the floor
(before laying the sub-grade) and rod holes made in the channel upto the ground level
15 cm. apart and the rod moved backward and forward to break up the earth and
chemical emulsion poured along the channel at the rate of 5 litres per linear meter so as
to soak the soil right to the bottom. The soil should be tamped back into place after this
operation.

3.07 Treatment to Soil Along External Perimeter of Building :

Finally the earth round the external perimeter of the building upto a depth of 30 cm. shall
be treated at the rate of 4.5 litres per running meter of plinth wall. To facilitate this
treatment, solid M.S. rods should be driven into the soil as close as possible to the plinth
wall at intervals of 15 cm. and upto a depth of 30 cm. and the rods moved backwards
and forward in direction parallel to the wall to break up the earth so that the chemical
emulsion mixed intimately with the soil.

3.08 Treatment of Soil Surrounding Pipes, Wastes and Conduits :

When pipes, pastes and conduits enter the soil inside the area of the foundation, the soil
surrounding the point of entry must be loosened around each such pipe, waste or
conduit for a distance of 15 cm. and upto a depth of 7.5 cm. before treatment is
commenced. When they enter the soil external to the foundation, they shall be similarly
treated unless they stand clear of the walls of the building by about 7.5 cm. for a
distance of over 30 cm.

3.09 Spraying Equipment :

A pressure pump shall be used to carry out spraying operations to facilitate proper
penetration of chemical into the earth.

22.0 VITRIFIED TILES :

22.1. Vitrified tiles are those tiles, which have higher amount (percentage) of vitrification and
less water absorption. Vitrification is nothing but partial development of glass phase
inside the tile while firing, which mainly due to melting crystal formation of raw materials
used in the body of the tile.

22.2. Laying :

When laying the tiles, use special porcelain stoneware adhesives. However, if you have
chosen the traditional laying method, using cement mortar, the adhesive drying times
are longer, since cement has different drying times to adhesives. Do not get the material
wet before it is laid. You should lay the tiles with an open joint, leaving a joint of 2-4 mm.
to enable the jointing material to take and to allow for settling and/or the expansion of the
surface below or any slight laying imperfections. Use the correct expansion joints. Do not
mark the surface of the material with pencils or indelible markers.

For the grouting, use a jointing material, which matches the colour of the floor, for both
technical and aesthetic reasons. Always remove any grouting residue when it is still wet.
If you do not remove it all, or you attempt to remove later, the task will be more difficult.

22.3. AFTER LAYING :

Traces of mortar, cement or working residues will remain on the floor surface, invisible to
the naked eye. These deposits may retain dirt, acting as anchorage points. It is essential
then to remove these deposits carefully using acid-based scale remover or other specific
products. When the laying is complete, protect the floor from any damage that could be
caused by work being carried out in the building.

22.4. VITRIFIED TILES STANDARDS :

The following standards are given below :

Thickness = + / - 5 %
Water absorption = Less than or equal to 3 %
Flexion Resistance = Less than or equal to 27 Nmm.
MOHS hardness = Greater than or equal to 6 MOHS.
Abrasion Resistance = Greater than or equal to 205 mm.

or for any other reason, it shall be considered a new mix and initially be subject to the
acceptability criteria as stated above.

1.2.7.3 The above specification is based on an assumed standard deviation of 5.5 Mpa, and a
probability of concrete strengths failing below the desired minimum strength of 1 to 20.
In case quality control is very good at site and the cube test results consistently show a
standard deviation better than the standard deviation assumed here, the Engineer may
in his discretion reduce the required target strength tcm for any particular grade of
concrete, and in current the current margin.

1.2.7.4 If the concrete produced at site does not satisfy the above strength requirements, the
Architects will reserve the right to required the Contractor to improve the methods of
batching, the quality of the ingredients and redesign the mix with increased cement
content if
necessary. The Contractor shall not be claimed any extra cost for the extra cement used
for the modifications stipulated by the Engineer for fulfilling the strength requirements

7.0 Conducting Field Permeability Tests in Bore Holes :

7.1 The Procedure for conducting field permeability tests in over burden will be according to
IS 5529 Part-I, subject to the following modifications :

i) The length of the test pocket and its diameter shall be as directed by the
Consultant. The duration of the test and frequency of observation of levels and
flow shall be as directed. Rising, falling or constant head test shall be performed
as directed.

ii) The test pockets shall be formed by driving a test tip below the bottom edge of
the casing to a stipulated depth. The diameter of the testing tip will be 50 to 75
mm. and will consist of a hard conical tip with a slotted steel pipe alongwith the
blank section. The total length of the assembly comprising the pipe and the tip
shall be two meters or shorter where directed by the Consultant. The testing tip
shall be two meters or shorter where directed by the Consultant. The testing tip
shall be attached to the lower end of the drill string by suitable threaded coupling.
Details such as the number and spacing of slots, length of the blank section etc.
shall be as directed by the Consultant. The slotted pipe shall house a perforated
pipe wrapped in a strainer fabric to prevent clogging and washed at the end of
the each testing operation. The precise details of the test tip shall be decided
after initial trials and minor modifications to achieve satisfactory results.

7.2 If a field permeability test is to be carried out in rock immediately after completing boring
in over burden a suitable size of ordinary M.S. pipe shall be socketed atleast 50 to 100
cm. into the rock to obtain a proper seal. The space between this pipe and the wall of the
borehole (or casing if one has been used) is grouted. As the grout fills, the annular
space rises up and spills out of the boreholes., the casing pipe (if one has been used) to
be gradually extracted. The grout should be either of neat cement or clay (Bentonite)
cement. The grouting should be carried out so as to obtain a water tight joint at the

Bank of India, HO, Mumbai Technical Specifications-Vol.II Page 158


socketing of the MS pipe in the bed rock capable of sustaining the pressure specified in
the IS 5529 Part II for the constant head permeability test in bed rock. Further procedure
of conducting field permeability test in underlying bed rock should conform to 7.3.

7.3 The procedure for conducting field permeability test in rock shall follow IS 5529 (Part II),
but the length (zone) of tests, test pressure, sequence of application of pressure,
positioning of packers etc. shall be as directed by the Consultant. Cyclic packer
permeability tests shall be conducted in rock.

7.4 The following precautions are necessary when carrying out lugeon permeability test :

1. Packers are to be carefully set to prevent leakage of water. When the amount of
injection water is considered excessive, the cause is likely to be :

a) A defective packer which must be changed or reset, or

b) A badly located packer, which must then be adjusted upwards or


downwards.

2. When the amount of injected water exceeds the capacity of the pump and the
injection pressure does not rise to 10 kg./sq.cm., either the pump must be
exchanged for one with larger capacity, or the length of the test section must be
shortened.

3. Each test is to continue until the rate of injection or water becomes steady.

4. The conditions under which testing was carried out are to be clearly recorded.
These include the level of the waterable, the quantity and pressure of artesian
water, bore hole diameter and the location of the pressure guage etc.

5. Since an accurate lugeon value cannot be obtained for those parts of the strata
which have been grouted and at fault zones where packer setting is difficult, both
these conditions are to be clearly recorded.

6. When large amounts of water are used the friction loss within the injection
equipment must be taken into account.

8.0 Collection of Soil and water samples for chemical analysis :

Wherever a water sample is required to be collected, the Contractor shall not use drilling
mud for boring the hole. The sample shall be collected from a case bore hole and only
after flushing out the entire contents of the bore hole by means of air flushing or a
percussion bailer or any other method approved by the Consultant. The samples shall
be collected from the bore holes at depths selected by the Consultant.

The water samples shall be collected in air tight amber glass containers (two containers
of one litre capacity each for each sample). The Contractor shall store such samples in a
covered shed.

The Contractor shall reach the samples to the approved laboratory within ten days of
their collection and secure a proper receipt for the Consultants.

The Contractor shall allow for sand blow while quoting a unit rate for this item. Th unit
rate should include the cost of all operations such as flushing and cleaning for advancing
the bore hole deeper.
