**Types of Gradations * Uniformly graded - Few points of contact**

- Poor interlock (shape dependent) - High permeability * Well graded - Good interlock - Low permeability * Gap graded - Only limited sizes - Good interlock - Low permeability

Example 1. Concrete is required for portion of structure that will be below ground level in a location where it will not be exposed to severe weathering or sulfate attack. Structural considerations require it to have an average 28-day compressive strength of 24 MPa with slump of 75 to 100 mm. the materials properties are as follows nominal max. size of coarse aggregate = 37.5 mm. dry rodded mass of 1,600 kg/m3 cement type I : S.G. = 3.15 bulk specific gravity of coarse aggregate = 2.68, absorption = 0.5% bulk specific gravity of sand = 2.64, absorption = 0.7%, F.M. = 2.8 Determine the quantities ingredients per m3 of concrete.

15
**Example 1. Step 1 From A1.5.3.1 Slump = 75-100 mm.**

Step 2 Given max size = 37.5 mm. Step 3 From A , estimate mixing water = 181 kg/m3 Step 4 From A (a) W/C = 0.62 Step 5 Cement = 181/0.62 = 292 kg./m3 Step 6. From A and fineness modulus (FM) of sand = 2.8 and max. size of coarse aggregate = 37.5 mm, Volume of CA = 0.71 dry mass of CA = 1600 x 0.71 = 1,136 kg. Step 7.1 Mass Basis From A the mass of cubic meter of concrete = 2410 kg Water = 181 kg Cement = 292 kg CA = 1136 kg Total = 1609 kg, hence mass of sand = = 801 kg.

16
**Example 1. Step 7.2 Absolute Volume Basis**

V of water = 181/1000 = m3 V of cement = 292/(3.15*1000) = m3 V of CA = 1136/(2.68 x 1000) = m3 V of entrapped air = 0.01 x 1 = m3 Total solid volume of ingredients except fine aggregate = m3 V of sand = 1.0 – = m3 Required weight of dry sand = x 2.64 x 1000 = 771 kg

17
Example 1. Step 8. Adjusted weight from moisture of sand and coarse aggregate = 5.3 % 0.7 % SAND absorption surface water CA 0.5 % = 1.5 % CA wet = 1.02 x 1136 = 1159 kg. Sand wet = 1.06 x 771 = 849 kg. Add water =181-(0.015 x 1136 ) – (0.053 x 771) = 122 kg.

18
Example 1. The estimate batch masses for a cubic meter of concrete are : Added water = 122 kg Cement = 292 kg Wet coarse aggregate = 1159 kg Wet sand = 849 kg Total = 2422 kg
