lytag® lightweight aggregate concrete (lwac) skip mixes are generally designed around a bs 8500-1:2006 s2 consistence class (50mm – 90mm) or a target slump of 70mm. to pump lytag® lwac mixes requires the use of admixtures and an appropriate mix design to produce a semi-flowing concrete equivalent to bs 8500-1:2006 flow class f5 or target flow of 560–620mm.
mix with opc mix with opc + pfa (30%) step 6: selection of fine and coarse aggregate contents (fig. 6) proportion of fine aggregate = 47% fine aggregate content = 1691 x 0.47 = 795 kg/m3. coarse aggregate content = 1691 - 795 = 896 kg/m3. 20mm : 10mm ~ 2 : 1 20mm = 896 x 2/3 = 597 kg/m3. 10mm = 896 x 1/3 = 299 kg/m3.
depending on the mix design, either can be used to make essentially any range of concrete strengths. when you use a smaller aggregate, such as the 10mm as your nominal coarse aggregate size, the specific surface area of the total volume of coarse aggregate is much higher than for the 20mm aggregate.
type of aggregates – whether mixed graded aggregate will be usedor 20mm, 10mm aggregates will be used separately. iii. testing of concrete – whether casting & testing of concrete cubeswill be done regularly at site. iv. source of aggregate – whether sources of sand and aggregate will be standardised or likely to change frequently.
graded coarse aggregate shall be used. example: for an average grading of fine aggregate(that is zone ii of table 4 of is 383) the proportions shall be 1:1.5, 1:2, 1:2.5 for maximum size of aggregates 10mm, 20mm and 40mm respectively.

mostly use for pcc works. concrete mix design for m10 grade concrete with pure ppc cement only is as follows; ppc cement 53 grade – 220 kg. water cement ratio (w/c) – 0.6. free water – 132 liters. 20mm metal / aggregates – 666 kg. 10mm metal / aggregates – 539 kg. crush sand – 1038 kg. admixture dosage – 0.6%.
aggregates make up some 60 -80% of the concrete mix. • aggregates are divided into either ‘ coarse ’ or ‘ fine ’ categories. - coarse aggregates are particulates that are greater than 4.75mm. the usual range employed is between 9.5mm and 37.5mm in diameter. - fine aggregates are usually sand
determination of aggregate to cement ratio (a/c): a/c ratio can be calculated if following factors are known or determined: shape of the aggregate maximum aggregate size (10mm,20mm,40mm) zone of aggregates (1,2,3,4) degree of workability water-to-cement ratio if concrete ingredients consist of coarse crushed and natural fine aggregates then a/c is adjusted as follows : determine a/c for crushed aggregates for the mas fixed for the mix (say aca) determine a/c for rounded or irregular gravel
in designing concrete structures, normally maximum aggregate sizes are adopted with ranges from 10mm to 20mm. does an increase of maximum aggregate size benefit the structures? posted in concrete engineering | email this post |
c10. 'design strength mix' achieving 10 newton/28 day strength. consists of cement, 4-20mm stone, graded sand and water. can be supplied with 10mm stone for specialist applications, subject to a
mix design (m) = cement: sand :aggregate as per bs 8500-2 british/european standards the grade of concrete is denoted as c10, c15, c20,c25, etc., ‘c’ which means ‘ concrete strength class’ and number behind c refers to characteristic compressive strength of concrete in n/mm 2 @ 28 days when tested with the 15cm dia & 30cm height cylinder in direct compression test

given below the specifications of m50 concrete mix design. grade designation = m-50 type of cement = o.p.c-43 grade brand of cement = vikram ( grasim ) admixture = sika [sikament 170 ( h ) ] fine aggregate = zone-ii sp. gravity cement = 3.15. fine aggregate = 2.61 coarse aggregate (20mm) = 2.65 coarse aggregate (10mm) = 2.66
determine actual value, in absence assume 3.15 for opc and 3.00 for ppc (fly ash based) a = air content, percent. assume entrapped air 1% for 40 mm maximum size of aggregate, 1.5% for 20 mm maximum size of aggregate and 2.5% for 10mm maximum size of aggregate. there are always entrapped air in concrete.
concrete mix ratios are prescribed ratio of cement, sand and aggregate to get the desired strength in concrete. the volumetric mix ratio of m20 concrete is 1:1.5:3, hence 1 part of cement, 1.5 part of sand and 3 part of aggregate in volume is needed to prepare m20 grade concrete.
concrete mix design offers a lot of flexibility on type of aggregates to be used in mix design. mix design can give an economical solution based on the available materials if they meet the basic is requirements. this can lead to saving in transportation costs from longer distances. c) other properties: mix design can help us to achieve form finishes, high early strengths for early

if you want 10 mm and 20 mm aggregate mixed in the concrete, mix it in the ratio of 50:50 (of coarse aggregate volume). pcc should be usually be done with m15, so
2.1. below is a list of design requirements/assumptions that have been used for the concrete mix design: - a slump of 10mm to 30mm. - a characteristic 28-day compressive strength of 30 n/mm 2
it is obligatory to design the mix for high strength concrete. design mix for a site/construction results in economy. by designing a mix, we can achieve the required compressive strength and workability by consuming minimum quantity of concrete materials. it is suggested that all the contractors/builders should get the design mix done for bringing quality control in construction.
for 20 mm maximum size aggregate, sand confirming to grading zone ii, water content per cubic metre of concrete = 180 kg and sand content as percentage of total aggregate by absolute volume = 25 per cent. required water content = 180 + 5.4 = 185.4/m3. (f) determination of cement content:
then, proportion of fine aggregate is determined in the total aggregate using fig. 11.5. fig. 11.5(a) is for 10 mm size, 11.5(b) is for 20 mm size and fig. 11.5(c) is for 40 mm size coarse aggregate. the parameters involved are maximum size of coarse aggregate, the level of workability, the water/cement
