Procedure of Concreting R.C.C  Slope Roof Slab.

We can do the concrete of  RCC slope  roof with the same concrete mix using for
concrete of flat Slab . No need of  reducing the water content . First we have to do
the concrete of  a stretch of  600mm wide area of Slab ( starting from the  lower
part of slope slab ) . Kindly refer the  drawing  of a Slope roof attached to get
the procedure to be followed. Up to 65 degree slope slab,  first we can
do the concrete of  maximum  450mm to 600mm wide  stretch of  slab . We have
to
complete this stretch concrete  from one end to other end . By this time , the
concrete in the starting point will be  able to hold the  pressure of  next 6mm
wide Stretch  of Concrete. Before starting the 2nd stretch of concrete Cement
Grout to be poured on the earlier  Stretch of Concrete. This will avoid all loop
holes in slab affecting strength.

Example : Refer the picture of Slope Roof Attached .

We will start the Slab Concrete  at Location "A "for a maximum width of  600
mm and will continue  up to  Location" B ". While doing concrete it will all ways
having a tendency to slide  towards down . This has to be  clearly observed and
600mm to 750mm length and  100mm to 150mm wide heavy wooden
trowel to be used for levelling ( with  hand ) the concrete according to the

4/22/2018 What is the correct procedure of concreting an RCC Slope Roof Slab? - Quora

we formed day joints preparing the edges for the next pour each time, however
we were applying multiple layers of concrete.

If there's a Spanish engineer out there they may answer this question better as
they concrete a lot of sloping roofs, I was involved in a number of large house
building projects all of which used as beam and block frame with numerous
additional internal walls ( using non structural type bricks) which were then
sealed with a thin concrete pour (used mainly to seal the gaps in the beams and
blocks) a final screen like concrete was pumped onto the roof and manually
working, the mix was quite dry and sets quickly with the entire roof completed
in one day, unfortunately I was never told what the mix was as it was a standard
mix used throughout that area and every body new what it was, they simply
ordered as roofing mix, similar to asking for pea gravel for a trench in the uk, we
all know what Pea gravel is so rarely state the size of material.

So as stated above the methods will change based on the variables but a couple
of points below are important to remember for all cases.
1. Do not mess around with your concrete mix, that is part of your design
criteria.
2. If additives are to be added i.e fast cure, water proffer etc. then make sure
these are accounted for in the design .
3. Supports! on so many Jobs I've seen bad temporary supports and remembers
even if steel beams are being used below check that the design criteria has not
requested temporary support under those whilst construction loading is
underway.
4. Protection! weather protection whilst curing is more important at Height.
5. Safety! this relates to point 3 I've investigated a number of collapses some
related to design but most due to poor or inadequate supports, remember an
adjustable prop out of plumb will dramatically reduce its load capacity and the
angle of incline WILL make a difference.
