WE08 - Concrete Mix Design Part I: Evaluation of Mixtures

Wednesday, January 22 from 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM | Room N114, North Hall, Las Vegas Convention Center « Back

Will the mix design presented meet project needs? Part I of this two-part series is an overview of how the cement, water and aggregates interact in a concrete mix. Emphasis is on understanding reality, not on theory. Attendees will follow a mix design through the submittal process and learn how to review a proposed mix for yield, expected strength and durability, shrinkage, workability and cost. This sessi-on highlights valuable information for anyone who may use, produce, place, finish, specify or approve concrete mixtures or deal with complaints of cracking. Investigating aggregate gradation effects and admixtures will be covered in Part II.

  1. Analyze how cement, water and aggregates interact in a concrete mix
  2. Summarize mix design, proportioning, submittal and the evaluation process
  3. Clarify how to review for yield, expected strength and durability, shrinkage, workability and cost
  4. Explore building code requirements and available quality-control testing
