5 steps to mix calibration: make a minimum of 17 cylinders; 2 will be used for temperature monitoring while the other specimens will be used for compressive strength breaks. all cylinders must be cured together in a moist environment (astm c511). select a minimum of
the maturity method is an astm-standardized, non-destructive test method for estimating concrete strength that provides real-time results that construction teams use to expedite project schedules, reduce budgets, and satisfy project requirements for temperature or maturity monitoring.

• more cement means stronger concrete • supplementary cementitious materials are dilutants • aci 211 last revised in 1991 linear proportioning approaches present. absolute volume approach • paste volume based on coarse aggregate size • coarse aggregate volume based on subtracting the fineness modulus (fm) of sand from a fudge factor

make all specimens from the same batch of concrete. the batch size should be at least 3 cubic yards (2.3 cubic meters) and use the same materials, mix design and mixing technique that will be used for concrete on the project. mix at the maximum w/c ratio and
answer: 620 x 0.400 = 248 lbs of water. example 4 determine w/c given a mix design with 32 gallons of water and 517 lbs of cement per yd. answer: water weight = 32 gal x 8.33 = 267 lbs w/c = 267 / 517 = 0.516. dry rodded unit weight. dry rodded unit weight is sometimes called bulk or loose unit weight.
f. 'mass concrete' is any concrete system that approaches a maximum temperature of 70 degrees c 158 degrees f within the first 72 hours of placement. in addition, it includes all concrete elements with a section thickness of 1 meter 3 feet or more regardless of temperature.
the maturity method was used to predict in-place compressive strength of 6-ft cubes. • activation energies for four concrete mixtures for the cubes were determined. • the core strength of the 6-ft vertical cores was found to increase with depth. • the predicted strength values were comparable to the core strength at the center position. •
of concrete, fineness modulus of fine aggregate (ptm no. 501) and the solids percent in coarse aggregate (ptm no. 617). (2) test procedures: slump—aashto t 119; compressive strength—ptm no. 604, or maturity meter method—ptm no. 640. the upper age limit and lower age limit are defined by the values listed for 7-day
specifying mass concrete for bridge elements. element size is typically defined by design code • however, other factors may contribute to identification of “mass concrete” 1. high strength concrete 2. small coarse aggregate resulting in high paste volume a thermal analysis could identify the following examples as mass concrete:
the air meter investigates the deformation of the concrete at 14.5, 30, and 45 psi. it then releases the pressure to perform the same deformation steps for a second time. the differences between the first and second pressure steps are used to calculate the sam number, which is correlated with the average spacing between air voids in the concrete mixture. as a result, the sam number can be used to determine freeze-thaw according to aci 201 concrete
the concrete maturity method is based on astm c1074-11 standard practice for estimating concrete strength by the maturity method. the procedure for utilizing the concrete maturity method to determine in-place concrete strengths includes three steps: development of the strength-maturity relationship, monitoring the maturity of the concrete placement, and regular validation of the strength maturity

the variability of the concrete tensile strength is given by the following formulas: formula for mean tensile strength f ctm. f ctm [mpa] = 0.30⋅f ck 2/3 for concrete class ≤ c50/60. f ctm [mpa] = 2.12⋅ln[1+(f cm / 10mpa)] for concrete class > c50/60. formula for 5% fractile tensile strength f ctk,0.05. f ctk,0.05 = 0.7⋅f ctm
it has, however, the potential for providing a quick means of checking quality and maturity of in situ concrete. it also provides a means of assessing strength development with curing. the test is essentially non-destructive, since concrete and structural members can be tested in situ, with only minor patching of holes on exposed faces. 2.
c the slump values of more than 178 mm are only obtained through the use of water-reducing chemical admixtures; they are for concrete containing nominal maximum size aggregate not larger than 25 mm. chemical admixtures should be used only after an appropriate evaluation has been conducted to show that the desired effects have been accomplished under the conditions of intended use.
