## 3. Target Mean Strength and Mix Proportioning

- As per MORTH the Target Mean Strength for M-50 Grade = 63 Mpa

## 4. Target Mean Strength and Mix Proportioning

- As per technical specification max Water/Cement + Binder = 0.4

## 5. Selection of water/Cement Ratio (W/C)

Ref Tab 2 , IS 10262 , Maximum water content per cum for 20mm Aggregate = 186 litre for 50 mm slump

= 186 + (0.09 * 186) (add 3% for every 25 mm increase )

= 203 lit

Based on trials with super plasticizers, water content reduced by 33%,hence the arrived water content = 135.84lit, So Let us add water 136 lit

## 6. Cementious content Calculation

Water-Cementitious Ratio = 0.31

Cementious content (Cement OPC 53 ) = 439

Say Cementitious content = 440 kg/m3

Cement = 440 kg/m3

Based on experience and lab trials, Based on experience and lab trials, super plasticizer = 0.57 %

## 7. Calculation Aggregate content Calculation

Ref Tab 3 of IS 10262 , for Sand Zone II , volume of coarse aggregate

per unit vol of total aggregate for 0.5 water-cement ratio = 0.62

Adjust for W/c ratio : Add @ 0.01 for every decrease in 0.05= 0.038

Therefore , corrected proportion = 0.658

Adjust for pumpability , i.e decrese by 10% = 0.59 %

Based on experience Considering Volume of coarse aggregate = 0.57

Therefore, Volume of Fine aggregate = 0.43

## 8. Mix volume Calculation per cubic meter of concrete

a) Volume of concrete = 1 m3

b) Volume of cement = (Mass of cement /specific gravity of cement) × 1000 = 0.1397 m3

c) Volume of water = (Mass of water /specific gravity of water)× 1000 = 0.136 m3

d) Volume of admixture = (Mass of admixture /specific gravity of admixture)× 1000 = 0.00234 m3

e) Volume of all in aggregate =[a-(b+c+d)] = 0.72 m3

f) Mass of coarse aggregate(CA)

1) 20 mm = e × volume of CA × sp. gravity × % of 20mm × 1000 = 0.72*0.57*2.65*0.5*1000 = 545.27 kg/m3, Say 545 kg/m3

2) 12 mm = e× volume of CA × sp. gravity × % of 12mm × 1000 = 0.72*0.57*2.63*0.5*1000 = 541.16 kg/m3, Say 541 kg/m3

g) Mass of Fine aggregate = e × volume of FA × sp. gravity × 1000 0.72*0.43*2.59*1000 = 804.06 kg/m3 Say 804 kg/m3
