Appearance Density Of Fresh Concrete Mix And Workability

Influence of aggregate characteristics on

· Physical characteristics of aggregates have a significant influence on the performance of concrete Compared to conventional concrete the mix design of highly flowable concrete is more complex and should ensure that the mixture can develop adequate static and dynamic stability The selection of aggregate plays a major role for the mix design and mixture optimization of flowable concrete

Understanding the Density of Concrete •

· As for concrete itself the density of concrete of normal weight is about 2 400 kg per cubic meter or 145 lbs per cubic foot The concrete density varies depending on the amount and density of the aggregate how much air is entrapped or purposely entrained the cement concentration and the maximum size of aggregate used

Properties of Concrete Workability Setting

· Fresh concrete is that stage of concrete in which concrete can be moulded and it is in plastic state This is also called "Green Concrete" Another term used to describe the state of fresh concrete is consistence which is the ease with which concrete will flow The transition process of changing of concrete from plastic state to hardened state

Fresh Concrete Workability

Workability is the ability of a fresh (plastic) concrete mix to fill the form/mold properly with the desired work (vibration) and without reducing the concrete s quality Workability Workability depends on water content aggregate (shape and size distribution) cementitious content and age (level of hydration) and can be modified by adding chemical admixtures like superplasticizer Factors
