CONCRETE MIX DESIGN

CUSTOMER/PROJECT

CONCRETE APPLICATION: WALLS, Boom pump. This is a basic mix design. Design strength requirements and existing mix designs at the readymix producer are more than likely going to be different. Similar mix designs with the required design strength will more than likely suffice. The critical component to watch is the coarse aggregate content. The higher the weight, depending on specific factors of the different ingredients may make the mix tough to pump and tough to consolidate.
