The mix design for M35 Grade Of Concrete for pile foundations provided here is for reference purpose only. Actual site conditions vary and thus this should be adjusted as per the location and other factors.
Grade of Concrete : M35
Characteristic Strength (Fck) : 35 Mpa
Standard Deviation : 1.91 Mpa*
Target Mean Strength : T.M.S.= Fck +1.65 x S.D.
(from I.S 4562000) = 35+ 1.65×1.91
= 38.15 Mpa
Test Data For Material:
Aggregate Type : Crushed
Specific Gravity
Cement : 3.15
Coarse Aggregate : 2.67
Fine Aggregate : 2.62
MIX DESIGN
Take Sand content as percentage of total aggregates = 36%
Select Water Cement Ratio = 0.43 for concrete grade M35
(From Fig 2. of I.S. 10262 1982)
Select Water Content = 172 Kg
(From IS: 10262 for 20 mm nominal size of aggregates Maximum Water Content = 186 Kg/ M^{3 })
Hence, Cement Content= 172 / 0.43 = 400 Kg / M^{3}
Formula for Mix Proportion of Fine and Coarse Aggregate:
1000(1a_{0})_{ }= {(Cement Content / Sp. Gr. Of Cement) + Water Content +(F_{a }/ Sp. Gr.* P_{f })}
1000(1a_{0})_{ }= {(Cement Content / Sp. Gr. Of Cement) + Water Content +C_{a }/ Sp. Gr.* Pc_{ })}
Where C_{a }= Coarse Aggregate Content
F_{a }= Fine Aggregate Content
P_{f } = Sand Content as percentage of total Aggregates
= 0.36
Pc = Coarse Aggregate Content as percentage of total Aggregates.
= 0.64
a_{0 }= Percentage air content in concrete (As per IS :10262 for 20 mm nominal size of
aggregates air content is 2 %) = 0.02
Hence, 1000(10.02)_{ }= {(400 /3.15) + 172 +(F_{a }/ 2.62 x 0.36)}
Fa = 642 Kg/ Cum^{ }
As the sand is of Zone II no adjustment is required for sand.
Sand Content = 642 Kg/ Cum
1000(10.02)_{ }= {(400 /3.15) + 172 +(C_{a }/ 2.67 x 0.64)}
Hence, Ca = 1165 Kg/ Cum^{ }
From combined gradation of Coarse aggregates it has been found out that the proportion of 53:47 of 20 mm & 10 mm aggregates produces the best gradation as per IS: 383.
Hence, 20 mm Aggregates = 619 Kg
And 10 mm Aggregates = 546 Kg
To obtain slump in the range of 150190 mm water reducing admixture brand SP430 from Fosroc with a dose of 0.3 % by weight of Cement shall be used.

Thank you……………………………………
I found it very useful,
Will author tell us what is a typical use for concrete grade M35, in which members or which kind of structures it is mostly used.
The mix design of Mix Design For M35 Grade Of Concrete for pile foundations provided here is for reference purpose only. Apart from this depending on the structural requirements it can be used for other components as well
GOOD
How can i ever thankyou for this
tis a great ……………………
Thank you for the design,Please do clarifystandard deviation is seen as 1.91Mpa how did you assume that,the water content as 172kg. Is this all assumed.
No,its not assumed..It is taken from the respective codes. Please read it carefully ðŸ™‚
Thanks a lot***********
vary usefull guidline m35
IT IS A VERY USEFUL ,THANKS A LOT
Very Usefull
very useful
Pl send a mix for m30 with cement 340kg per m3
its useful to engineers form R&B Dept
how to know the mix proportion of high strength concrete? target mean strength is 90 mpa n 100 mpa. pliz give me the mix proprotion. tq
It is very valuable, i’m sarching the degin of concrete mix form college. thank for completing my *********
its useful data for all civil engineers , wherever they are working, for QS’s this will help a lot
plz send me pavement Quality concrete(PQC)design mix specifation
It is very useful…\
Thank you
