Read MoreThis paper is devoted to the studies of material and mechanical properties of recycled aggregate concrete using packing density method strength vs water cement ratio at 7 and 28 days curing.
Read MoreConcrete mix design is the process of finding right proportions of cement sand and aggregates for concrete to achieve target strength in structures so concrete mix design can be stated as concrete mix cementsandaggregates.
Read MoreBoth the shape and surface texture of aggregates influence the strength of concrete especially so for high strength concrete generally flexural strength is more affected than compressive strength rougher texture results in a greater adhesion or bond between the particles and cement matrix.

Read MoreThe four basic ingredients for making concrete are portland cement sand aggregate stone and water the strength of concrete mixture depends on the ratio in which these four ingredients are mixed concrete mix ratio of 133 on mixing 1 part cement 3 parts sand with 3 parts aggregate produces concrete with a compressive strength of 3000 psi.
Read MoreFor example for m30 grade the mix proportion can be 112 where 1 is the ratio of cement 1 is the ratio of sand and 2 is the ratio of coarse aggregate based on volume or weight of materials the strength measure with concrete cube or cylinders by civil engineers at the construction site.
Read MoreProcedure for compressive strength of mortar take 200gm of cement and 600gm of standard sand in the mix ratio 13 by weight in a pan the standard sand shall be of quartz of light gray or whitish variety and shall be free from silt.
Read MoreIn the nominal mix concrete all the ingredients and their proportions are prescribed in the standard specificationsthese proportions are specified in the ratio of cement to aggregates for certain strength achievement the mix proportions like 1153 124 136 etc are adopted in nominal mix of concrete without any scientific base only on the basis on past empirical studies.

Read MoreThe basic requirements for the design of concrete mix ratio are 1 meet the strength grade of concrete design 2 meet the concrete peaceability 3 meet the durability of the use of concrete 4 meet the above conditions to save cement and reduce the cost of concrete the strength of concrete is divided into twelve grades such as c75 c10.
Read MoreConcrete grades are denoted by m10 m20 m30 according to their compressive strength the m denotes mix design of concrete followed by the compressive strength number in nmm 2 mix is the respective ingredient proportions which are cement sand aggregate or cement fine aggregate coarse aggregate.
Read MoreA concrete mix of ratio 124 by volume was used as control to which the properties of the other mixes were compared sawdust was used to replace sand at percentages of 25 50 75 and 100 by volume a water cement ratio of 055 was adopted concrete was produced by mixing the constituent raw materials in an electric concrete mixer.
Read MoreJun 08 2012nbsp018332first of all we have to prepare a mixture of cement and sand having ratio of 13 that is one part of cement and three parts sand we take the weight of cement equal to 200 grams and therefore the weight of sand equal to 300 grams this will make a 13 mortar then we have to calculate the amount of water for this ratio according to the astm.
Read MoreWhile using aggregate in the concrete water on the surface of the aggregate should be taken into account as it will contribute to the water in the mix and will affect the water.
