2020-2-3 Concrete mix estimation. Our mix-on-site concrete calculation is based on batching by volume (Large construction sites employ batching by weight which is more exact). You can also estimate the quantity of sand and gravel required by weight; Simply multiply the volumetric quantity of sand and gravel with 1400 kg/m 3 (bulk density of sand) and ...

Read More2021-11-28 What Is Concrete Mix Ratio? Making concrete, it is important to use the correct concrete mixing ratios to produce a tough, long life, durable concrete mix. To make concrete, four basic materials you need: Cement, sand, aggregate, water, and add-mixture. This concrete mix ratio of aggregate to sand to cement is an important factor in determining the compressive strength of the concrete mixture.

Read More2000-3-2 A basic mixture of mortar can be made using the volume proportions of 1 water : 2 cement : 3 sand. Most of the student activities can be conducted using this basic mixture. Another "old rule of thumb" for mixing concrete is 1 cement : 2 sand : 3 gravel by volume. Mix the dry ingredients and slowly add water until the concrete is workable.
Read More2019-12-10 1. Introduction. The cement concrete pavement is a thin-plate structure, which is exposed to the external environment for a long time. Due to evaporation and hydration, the internal humidity of the concrete cannot be maintained in an appropriate range, which causes a negative pressure in the capillary pores and thus produces shrinkage and cracks inside the concrete , .
