Regarding error in submission time of Assignment 8

Dear Students,

Due to some technical glitch, the submission time of Assignment 8 was wrongly registered as 11:59 am instead of 11:59 pm.  We will update soon regarding the same. 
In the meantime, please note that only 8 out of the 12 assignments will be considered for final marks and assignments have only 25% weightage overall. From our side we will ensure that nobody loses out on marks well deserved for the efforts.
Cheers and Happy learning. 



Re-evaluation of questions from assignments-61 and 7

In assignment 6  Q.No. 5, there has been confusion in using 1600 or 1800 kg/cu.m for bulk density of coarse aggregate, hence answers obtained using both the values are considered by extending the range. Range for Q6. continues to remain the same since it was clearly mentioned to use 1800 kg/cum.for it.
In assignment 7 Q.No. 6, option c (Adopting a higher initial slump value) has also been considered as right answer.
Please check your updated scores. For any queries related to scores, please send relevant screenshots also.


Week 9 contents released on the portal (Concrete Technology)
