PROPORTIONING AND EVALUATION OF CONCRETE MIXTURES

Common practice in concrete mix proportioning and control relates the consistency of concrete, as measured by slump, with water requirement. A more realistic approach is to relate slump with aggregate content, keeping the water and cement fixed constants in trial mixes. The amount of aggregate that can be used with a given quantity of paste provides a realistic evaluation of the value of comparative proportions of materials used.
