THE DESIGN OF A CONCRETE MIXTURE

A DETAILED DESCRIPTION IS GIVEN OF THE DESIGNING OF A CONCRETE MIXTURE WHICH IS TO BE MADE OF SPECIFIC MATERIALS HAVING AN AVERAGE CRUSHING STRENGTH OF 4000 LBS. PER SQUARE INCH AT 28 DAYS, AND SUITABLE CONSISTENCY FOR PAVEMENT WORK. THE DESIGN WAS BASED UPON THE METHODS PROPOSED BY TALBOT AND RICHART. PREVIOUS EXPERIENCES WITH ONE OF THE MATERIALS USED WAS REPORTED AT THE SEVENTH PROCEEDINGS OF THE HIGHWAY RESEARCH BOARD. USE OF THE DESIGN MIX ON FIFTEEN MILES OF PAVEMENT SHOWED THAT THE CONCRETE WAS OF SATISFACTORY CONSISTENCY, THE AVERAGE STRENGTH WAS SLIGHTLY IN EXCESS OF THE REQUIREMENT, AND THE COST OF THE MATERIALS USED WAS 0.03 PERCENT LESS THAN THE ESTIMATE.
