    From the Editors Desk...

    haunches, a substantial saving of steel and concrete along

    with a safer and durable structure is possible!

    An experimental study on the strength characteristics

    of slurry infiltrated fibrous ferro-cement with partial

    replacement of natural sand by manufactured sand reveals

    higher flexural strength, toughness indices and impact

    strength. In the next paper on polymer modified fibre

    reinforced concrete, the influence of polymer and fibres on

    workability and wet density of fresh concrete, the effect of

    dry curing on various strengths of fibre reinforced concrete

    has been investigated.

    The section Point of View features two papers Evaluation

    of the performance of multi-blended mix concretes

    containing fly ash and silica fume, and A review on the

    effect of mineral and chemical admixtures on the properties

    of mortar and concrete.

    We hope that the selection of papers in this issue interests

    you. Do write to us with your feedback and views.

    Under the Governments Make in India initiative,

    corporates have committed to huge investments in various

    states. NHAI and other road projects have begun work.

    Focus is on the forthcoming Union Budget due this week

    that should set the direction towards a concrete road for a

    sustainable growth that India should witness until at-least

    2020!

    All eyes are on India, and all eyes are also on us as

    engineers to get into project mode to complete projects

    on time and within budget!

    In this issue, the first paper looks at how to cut noise from

    the tyre-pavement interaction. Though concrete pavements

    are more durable and cost effective when compared with

    the more flexible bituminous concrete pavements, the

    noise generated by the cement concrete pavements, make

    it an unpopular option to deal with. Porous concrete is one

    such option that has a potential for noise reduction!

    Elevated water tanks are designed for worst of wind and

    seismic forces. The authors analyse various types of staging

    of water tanks with haunched braces for dynamic behaviour

    and suggest that with a little increase in shuttering cost of
