By measuring the cement stone and sand you will have a consistent concrete mix throughout your entire project 3000 psi concrete mix ratio To produce a 3000 psi cubic yard of concrete 27 cubic feet the concrete mixture ratio is 517 pounds of cement or 234kg 1560 pounds of sand or 707kg 1600 pounds of stone or 725kg
The strength of nominal mix concrete varied widely for given workability due to variation of mix ingredients M 15 124 M 20 1153 are the nominal mix ratio of concrete Standard Mix The nominal concrete mix of a fixed proportion of cement sand and aggregate provide considerable variation in strength resulting in the poor or overrich mix
M stands for mix Mix represents concrete with designated proportions of cement sand and aggregate And the number following M represents compressive strength of that concrete mix in Nmm 2 after 28 days For example for M20 grade of concrete mix its compressive strength after 28 days should be 20 Nmm 2
May 17 2017018332Nominal Mix Nominal Mix is generally adopted for small scale constructions In this type of mix the mix ratios and concrete constituent proportions are prefixed and specified Eg M201153 the quantity of cement sand and aggregate is batched in volume as per the fixed ratio
The specifications for concrete prescribed these proportions of cement sand aggregates and water These mixes of the fixed cement sand and aggregate ratio that ensures adequate strength are termed nominal mixes Nominal concrete mixes offer simplicity and under normal circumstances have a margin of strength above that specified However because of the variability of mix ingredients
The final mix proportions selected after trial mixes may need minor adjustment In case of fly ash cement concrete water content may be reduced by about 3 to 5 and proportion of fine aggregate may be reduced by 2 to 4 4 American Concrete Institute Method of Mix Design

American Concrete Institute Method of Mix Design ACI2111 This method of proportioning was first published in 1944 by ACI committee 613 In 1954 the method was revised to include among other modifications the use of entrained air In 1970 the method of mix design became the responsibility of ACI committee 211
GUIDELINES FOR REVIEWING CONCRETE MIX DESIGNS In Accordance with the 2010 CBC I Introduction Concrete mix designs are submitted for review so that the reviewer can verify the contractor is interpreting the construction documents correctly These guidelines were developed to assist the engineer reviewing concrete mix designs
The American Concrete Institute ACI is a leading authority and resource worldwide for the development and distribution of consensusbased standards technical resources educational programs certification programs and proven expertise for individuals and organizations involved in concrete design construction and materials who share a commitment to pursuing the best use of concrete

The concrete mix ratio refers to the proportion of the components in the concrete The concrete mix ratio is usually represented by the quality of various materials per cubic meter of concrete or amount proportion of various materials The basic requirements for the design of concrete mix ratio are 1 meet the strength grade of concrete design
The common method of expressing the proportions of ingredients of a concrete mix is in the terms of parts or ratios of cement fine and coarse aggregates For eg a concrete mix of proportions 124 means that cement fine and coarse aggregate are in the ratio 124 or the mix contains one part of cement two parts of fine aggregate and
ACI METHOD OF PROPORTIONING CONCRETE MIXES The ACI Standard 2111 is a Recommended Practice for Selecting Proportions for Concrete The procedure is as follows Step 1 Choice of slump Step 2 Choice of maximum size of aggregate Step 3 Estimation of mixing water and air content Step 4 Selection of watercement ratio Step 5
