Example text

Formulae and computer software have been developed to make this process automatic. 9 1 N = cement/cement plus fine agg by vol. Voids ratio Voids ratio As for mortar voids ratio diagrams, concrete displays a series of change points depending on the voids ratios and mean sizes of the coarse aggregate and the particular mortar solids. 11 it will be observed that at one of the change points, ‘d’ in this example, the water demand is a minimum. Concretes to the left of ‘d’ will be progressively more uncohesive and those to the right will be progressively over-cohesive.

For more onerous placing conditions it may be necessary to move ‘x’ further to the right. 9 1 n = mortar solids/concrete solids by vol. 11 Void ratio diagrams for mortar, and for concrete made with the mortar at point C and a particular coarse aggregate. The process is repeated for combinations of coarse aggregates with the other mortars, A, B, D, E and F, to complete the development of the concrete series ‘a–f’ at 50 mm slump. It is then necessary to convert the data for voids ratios, cement solids/mortar solids and mortar solids/concrete solids into the more familiar cement, fine aggregate, coarse aggregate and water contents per cubic metre together with other essential properties such as plastic density and water/cement ratio.

5 BRMCA mix design method stage IV and V: analysis, presentation and use of mix design data. The relationship between cement content and strength allows the selection of a mix to satisfy any specified strength requirement when account is taken of the design margin as described earlier. In preparing batch books for production purposes, adjustments are made to allow for the batching of wet aggregates. Where designed concretes are supplied the producer has the responsibility of controlling the quality of the concrete so that the conformity tests are satisfied.
