Sol. Aeration is the process of mixing extra air with water which helps in the improvement of chemical and physical characteristics of water.
Sol. the hardness that is equivalent to alkalinity is known as carbonate hardness. It is also termed as temporary hardness. carbonate hardness is also defined as the minimum of these two i.e. alkalinity and total hardness.
Sol. Reflux valves are also known as check valves or non-returning valves.
Sol. As per IS 456-2000, The minimum grade of concrete used in Reinforced concrete is M20.
Sol. The initial Setting time of fresh concrete should not be less 30min. and the final setting time is 10 hours.
Sol. The compressive strength of M15 grade of concrete is 150 kg /cm² or 15 N/mm² of 15 cm. cube at 28 days.
