Normal Mix Design up to M 50 Grade
Our experts at Lab specialise in concrete mix design, including normal mix designs up to M50 grade. We have extensive knowledge and experience in creating optimal concrete mixtures that meet the required strength and durability specifications. Trust us to provide precise and efficient mix designs for your concrete projects, ensuring high-quality and reliable results up to M50 grade
- Strength: Normal mix design up to M 50 grade typically focuses on achieving compressive strength requirements ranging from 20 to 50 (MPa).
- Standard Specifications: The mix design follows established guidelines and specifications, such as those provided by relevant codes and standards (e.g., Indian Standards, ASTM).
- Aggregate Gradation: The selection of aggregate sizes and gradation plays a crucial role in achieving the desired workability, strength, and durability of the concrete mix.
- Water-Cement Ratio: The water-cement ratio is carefully controlled to ensure proper hydration of the cement and to maintain the desired workability while preventing excessive shrinkage or cracking.
Self-Compaction Concrete Mix Design
Self-compacting concrete (SCC) mix design is a specialised approach to proportioning concrete that is highly flowable and can easily fill and compact in congested reinforcement areas without the need for external vibration. Here are the key points about self-compacting concrete mix design:
- Flowability: SCC has high flowability, filling all corners and gaps without mechanical consolidation.
- Workability and Segregation Resistance: SCC maintains workability and prevents segregation or blocking, ensuring uniform distribution of aggregates and cement paste.
- Viscosity and Cohesiveness: SCC achieves the right balance of viscosity and cohesiveness to prevent excessive bleeding or segregation.
- Fine Aggregate Content: SCC contains more fine aggregates to enhance flowability and filling ability.
- Binder Content: Optimal cementitious material content, including cement and supplementary cementitious materials, ensures desired strength and durability.
