25 25 Step V:- Compute the quantity of cement as follows. Water Cement = ------------- W/C Ratio = 185 / 0.45 = 411 Kg.

26 26 Step VI:- Then we find the quantities of Fine & Coarse aggregate by absolute volume method. V = (W+C/S c +(1/p) * (fa/S fa )) * (1/1000) - (Eq.1) and V = (W+C/S c +(1/(1-p)) * (ca/S ca )) * (1/1000) - (Eq.2) Where V = Absolute volume of fresh concrete = 1 m 3 W = Mass of Water (Kg) per m 3 of concrete C = Mass of Cement (Kg) per m 3 of concrete p = Percentage of fine aggregate. fa = Mass of fine aggregate ca = Mass of coarse aggregate S c = Specific gravity of cement. S fa = Specific gravity of fine aggregate. S ca = Specific gravity of coarse aggregate.

27 27 Substituting the values in Eq(1), we get 1000 = 185 + 411/3.0 + (1/0.36) * fa /2.6) = 185 + 137 + fa/0.936 = 322 + fa/0.936 fa = (1000 – 322) * 0.936 = 678 * 0.936 = 635 Kg.

28 28 Substituting the values in Eq(2), we get 1000 = 185 + 411/3.0 + (1/0.64) * ca /2.65) = 185 + 137 + ca/1.696 = 322 + ca/1.696 ca = (1000 – 322) * 1.696 = 678 * 1.696 = 1150 Kg.

29 29 So the mix proportion works out to be W : C : fa : ca = 185 : 411 : 635 : 1150 = 0.45 : 1 : 1.55 : 2.80 This mix will be considered as Trial Mix No.2

30 30 Step VII:- Make slump trials to find out the actual weight of water to get required slump. Make corrections to the water content & %FA, if required. Step VIII:- Compute 2 more trial mixes with W/C ratios as 0.40 & 0.50, taking %FA as 34% and 38% respectively.

31 31 Trial Mix No. 1:- Cement = 185 / 0.4 = 462.5 Kg. Substituting the values in Eq(1), we get 1000 = 185 + 462.5/3.0 + (1/0.34) * fa /2.6) fa = 584 Kg. Substituting the values in Eq(2), we get 1000 = 185 + 462.5/3.0 + (1/0.66) * ca /2.65) ca = 1156 Kg. So the mix proportion works out to be W : C : fa : ca = 185 : 462.5 : 584 : 1156 = 0.4 : 1 : 1.26 : 2.50

32 32 Trial Mix No. 3:- Cement = 185 / 0.5 = 370 Kg. Substituting the values in Eq(1), we get 1000 = 185 + 370/3.0 + (1/0.38) * fa /2.6) fa = 683 Kg. Substituting the values in Eq(2), we get 1000 = 185 + 370/3.0 + (1/0.62) * ca /2.65) ca = 1136 Kg. So the mix proportion works out to be W : C : fa : ca = 185 : 370 : 683 : 1136 = 0.5 : 1 : 1.85 : 3.07

33 33 Step IX:- Cast atleast 3 cubes for each trial mix. Step X:- Test the cubes for compressive strength at 28 days.

34 34 28 Days Compressive Strengths of Trial Mixes W/C Ratio C/W Ratio Compressive Strength (Kg/Cm 2 ) 0.402.50457 0.452.22420 0.502.00360

35 35 Step XI:- Draw a graph between compressive strength Vs C/W Ratio.

36 36

37 37 Step XII:- From the graph, find the W/C ratio for the required target mean compressive strength. Step XIII:- C alculate the mix proportions corresponding to the W/C ratio, obtained from the graph.

38 38 Final Mix:- From the graph, for a target strength of 390 Kg/Cm 2, W/C ratio = 0.47 Cement = 185 / 0.47 = 394 Kg. Substituting the values in Eq(1), we get 1000 = 185 + 394/3.0 + (1/0.38) * fa /2.6) fa = 675 Kg. Substituting the values in Eq(2), we get 1000 = 185 + 394/3.0 + (1/0.62) * ca /2.65) ca = 1123 Kg. So the mix proportion works out to be W : C : fa : ca = 185 : 394 : 675 : 1123 = 0.47 : 1 : 1.71 : 2.85

39 39 Step XIV:- Check the cement content & W/C ratio against the limiting values given in Table-5 of I.S: 456-2000 for given type of exposure & type of Concrete.

41 41 From the table 5 of IS: 456–2000, the minimum Cement content & W/C ratio, For moderate, for RCC are 300Kgs. & 0.5 The Cement content = 394Kgs. > 300Kgs. Hence Ok The W/C Ratio = 0.47 < 0.5 Hence Ok

51 51 Final Mix for RCC-M25:- From the graph, for a target strength of 322 Kg/Cm 2, W/C ratio = 0.57 which is > 0.5, So, limit W/C ratio to 0.5 only. Cement = 185 / 0.5 = 370 Kg. Substituting the values in Eq(1), we get 1000 = 185 + 370/3.0 + (1/0.38) * fa /2.6) fa = 683 Kg. Substituting the values in Eq(2), we get 1000 = 185 + 370/3.0 + (1/0.62) * ca /2.65) ca = 1136 Kg. So the mix proportion works out to be W : C : fa : ca = 185 : 370 : 683 : 1136 = 0.50 : 1 : 1.85 : 3.07

52 52 Specific Gravity of Cement [ IS : 4031 – 1988]: Specific gravity of cement (S c ) (W2 - W1) = ---------------------------- x 0.79 (W4 - W1) - (W3 - W2) Where, W1 = Weight of specific gravity bottle in g W2 = Weight of specific gravity bottle with about half filled cement in g W3 = Weight of specific gravity bottle with about half filled cement & rest is filled with kerosene in g. W4 = Weight of specific gravity bottle completely filled with kerosene in g 0.79 = Specific Gravity of Kerosene.

53 53 Specific Gravity of Fine Aggregate & Coarse Aggregate [ IS : 2386 (Part.3) - 1963]: D Specific gravity (Gs) = -------------- C – ( A – B) Where, A = Weight of Pycnometer vessel containing sample & filled with distilled water in g B = Weight of Pycnometer completely filled with distilled water only in g C = Weight of saturated surface dry sample in g D = Weight of oven dried sample in g
