Re: Cylinder Breaks vs. Mix Design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Randy,

Its not enough that the cylinder strengths are satisfactory. For a mix
design to be right you must look for the following:

  - first of all the 'workability'; implying the value of 'slump' or
    'workability factor' for which the mix has been designed. Its
    very easy to achieve higher strengths with a low workability
    which may not be practical for placing at the Site.

  - the aggregate/cement ratio

  - the physical properties of the aggregates used; especially its
    'soundness values' & 'the abrasion resistance values'.


I hope this helps. Regards,
