How we can made M40 mix in lab
Sir, Thanks for your kind in design mix, it is very useful for me for m30 in my profession
Hi Sir, I want to ask your opinion. For M30, is it the minimum weight of cement for 1m3 concrete is 310kg/m3? Generally, the mix design that I used for 1m3 concrete is 940(sand) : 979(20mm) : 310 (OPC). For water, 170 litre while admixture 2.32 litre were used. The type of admixture used is RHEOBUILD 1100 (HG). Superplasticising Admixture. My question is, it is a good ratio for 1m3 concrete gred 30? Product result from the used of this ratio is not very good. I’m not really sure is it caused by the concrete or workers. I really hope you can help me with your opinion. Thank you Sir.
Reduce W/C Ratio from .54 to .40 to .45 for better result.
Dear Sir,
I have received M30 mixing reports from my subcontractor. Mix proportion are 1 : 2.27 : 3.42
(a) Cement : 350.0 Kg.
(b) Fine Aggregates – Sand : 794.0 Kg.
(C) Coarse Aggregate No. 1 – 10 mm : 538.0 Kg.
(d) Coarse Aggregate No. 2 – 20 mm : 657.0 Kg.
(e) Water : 180.4 Liters
He has not added Chemical Admixture . Can M30 strength can be achieved without adding Admixture and with above proportion
Thank your
