on the porosity and size of the aggregates. The principal requirements for pumice to be considered a desirable aggregate for use in structural lightweight concrete are a low density and relatively high strength. The density is determined by the voids content, which is a function of the type
Coarse aggregate size in accordance with ASTM C330 for lightweight aggregates. Slump: Minimummaximum slump at point of placement in inches when tested in accordance with ASTM C143. Strength: Minimum compressive strength in psi after    days, tested in accordance with ASTM C39.
Mar 19, 2019· Select the maximum aggregate size, the larger the aggregate of the concrete mix, the better for minimizing shrinkage and curling. Using ACI table, estimate the water and air content. Select the watercement ratio for the concrete mix. Calculate the cement content by dividing the water content by the watercement ratio.
The resistive strength of concrete for compression is around 4,000 pounds per square inch, while the resistive strength for concrete in tension is probably less than 400 pounds per square inch. Generally, the tension strength of concrete is less than 10% of its compression strength.
2. Order concrete for the time you will be ready to start pumping. 3. Stagger coffee breaks. 4. Operator should know max. slump he can use. 5. 5" minimum steel lines; minimum rubber at end of line. 6. Low pressure pumps will have the least slump loss. Ready Mix Producers. 1. Soak the aggregate. 2. Moisture content should be checked every time bins are filled. 3.
Minimum Steel Reinforcement in Concrete. The percentages indicated are based on the gross crosssectional area of the concrete to be reinforced. Where the thickness of the section exceeds fifteen (15) inches (380 mm), a thickness of fifteen (15) inches (380 mm) should be used in determining the temperature or minimum reinforcement.
Classification Coarse Aggregate (CA) Size: mm (3/16 in.) to 50 mm (2 in.) (retained on No. 4 sieve) Fine Aggregate (FA) Size: < mm; >75 m ( in.) (retained on No. 200 sieve) Mass concrete may contain up to 150mm (6 in.) coarse aggregate.

insufficient, the reinforcing bar will pull out of the concrete before it can transfer the entire load the steel can handle. Table shows the embedment length required for different size bars and 2inch concrete cover. The minimum reinforcing cover for all reinforcing bars is 2 inches. Table
In the eurocode series of European standards (EN) related to construction, Eurocode 2: Design of concrete structures (abbreviated EN 1992 or, informally, EC 2) specifies technical rules for the design of concrete, reinforced concrete and prestressed concrete structures.
The air contents were in the desired range of + for all the mixes. The fresh concrete unit weights were nearly the same for all concretes, and had an average value of kg/m3 (146 lbs/) for quartzite aggregate, kg/m3 (147 lbs/) for limestone, kg/m3 (145 lbs/) for granite.
However in structural concrete of usual proportions, from the strength point of view, use of greater size aggregate than 25 mm or 38 mm has not been found advantageous. There are structural limitations also on the size of the aggregate. As per the maximum size should not be greater than 1/5 to 1/4 of the thickness of concrete section.
When the maximumsize aggregate is larger than 3 / 8 inch ( mm), the test panels shall have minimum dimensions of 18 inches by 18 inches (457 mm by 457 mm). When the maximumsize aggregate is 3 / 8 inch ( mm) or smaller, the test panels shall have minimum dimensions of 12 inches by 12 inches (305 mm by 305 mm).
concrete mix shall consist of a minimum 55 percent AASHTO M 43 size No. 67 coarse aggregate by weight of total aggregate. Class S40 concrete is a dense high strength structural concrete. Additional requirements are: An approved water reducing admixture shall be incorporated in the mix.
