prakash gavhane says:

what is the ratio of concrete above m35,40,45& above?

mohd maqbool sofi says:

How we can made M40 mix in lab

B. Viswanadh, Assistant Engineer says:

Sir, Thanks for your kind in design mix, it is very useful for me for m30 in my profession

Aishah says:

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.

Asif Ali Tak says:

Reduce W/C Ratio from .54 to .40 to .45 for better result.

Nikhil Shetty says:

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

Md iqbal anwar says:

Yes it give full strength because the work of admixture not for strength there work is different

Ak Sahoo says:

Chemical Admixture only can increases the workability not strength.

hiren says:

Yes it’s possible..

arun jangid says:

Sir mere ko road work me job mili h road ka work kaise hota h plz step by step bata do plz request kar raha Hu

prerna says:

If we use opc grade 43 cement what will be the proportion

Ranjith says:

What is mix proportion for. M30 concrete M43 grade cement

shyam sundar kumar says:

What is mix proportion M30

Nithyashree says:

well i have got 1:1.87:3.37 for m30 opc 43 grade cement & no admixture used, is tht ryt answer ?

Manish Srivastava says:

Sir,
Please suggest the admixture / plastisizer for design mix M40,M30 and M25 with stone dust.

suresh kumar says:

Dear sir
Plz suggeste me ” what would be the proper ratio of concrete mix of M30. & M35 in the min the construction of bridge hammer head and return wall

Kamalaraj says:

Dear Sir

I have not much practice in grade 30 but in site we are using 30, So i need to know minimum sieve rate of the aggregate to allow the concrete.

Vimal kumar says:

Concrete ma m30 Kya hota h

Rajesh Kumar says:

I have a item for road work,in which M30 concrete is to be used with 40mm graded aggregate.The contractor submitted mix design for M30 where in only 20 & 10 mm aggregate is considered. As per item we have to use 40,20&10mm aggregate for mix design.my doubt are as below
1. Weather mix design is possible with 40 mm graded aggregate?
2. Should we re design mix with 40 mm graded aggregate?
3. What will be impact on strength & durability of road if we continue with mix design considering 20 mm in place of 40 mm.

kranthi says:

Sir if compaction factor given how to calculate cement content

How can we convert cum in Kilogram unit

PATEL HEMANT says:

how can we convert unit cum in kilogram in cement, sand, course aggregate,& fine aggregate

krishan says:

1 cub Meter of m30 in
determine the cement beg

Bablu jha says:

Is it required of admixture
