Admixtures in Concrete

Admixtures in Concrete admixture in concrete Admixtures are those ingredients in concrete other than portland cement, water, and aggregates that are added to the mixture immediately before or during mixing (Fig. 6-1). Admixtures can be classified by function as follows:   Admixtures in Concrete Air-entraining admixtures Water-reducing admixtures Plasticizers Accelerating admixtures Retarding admixtures Hydration-control admixtures … Read more

Concrete-Mix-Design

ACI Method of Mix Design Outline The most common method used in North America is that established by ACI Recommended Practice 211.1 Any mix design procedure will provide a first approximation of the proportions and must be checked by trial batches Local characteristics in materials should be considered The following sequence of steps should be … Read more

ACI Mix Design Practical Example

ACI Mix Design Practical Example Consider the following example: The 28-day compressive strength should be 7,000 psi. The slump should be between 3 and 4 in. and the maximum aggregate size should not exceed ¾ in. The coarse and fine aggregates in the storage bins are wet. The properties of the materials are as follows: … Read more

Effect Of ACI Concrete Mix Design Parameters On Mix Proportion And Strength

Effect Of ACI Concrete Mix Design Parameters On Mix Proportion & Strength The effect of different mix design parameters in predicting mix proportions by ACI method of concrete mix design and their strength attainment has been studied. The parametric study revealed that ACI method fails in rational proportioning of fine aggregate content where coarse aggregate … Read more

Aci Method Of Concrete Mix Design: A Parametric Study

Aci Method Of Mix Design Absolute Volume Method

Aci Method Of Concrete Mix Design: A Parametric Study ABSTRACT: Concrete mix design by the ACI method requires various material properties as the input. The effect of variation of these input parameters on mix proportions has been studied here, with reference to strength attainment in few cases. The sensitivity of the mix has been expressed … Read more

Plastic Formwork Concrete Wall

Definition of Formwork Concrete Formwork can be define as a mould or box that is being poured with concrete and compacted to take the mould or box shape. Usually, form-works are temporary structures which are removed once the concrete is cured or after specified striking time. Function of Formwork Major functions of form-works are as … Read more
