The relationship between cement content and strength allows the selection of a mix to satisfy any specified strength requirement when account is taken of the design margin as described earlier. In preparing batch books for production purposes, adjustments are made to allow for the batching of wet aggregates.

For flowing concrete see Neville (1995, pp. 757–8). g. admixture manufacturers. 7 Simplified mix design methods Two methods are considered under the heading of simplified methods • DoE (1988) • ACI (1991). 1/31 Concrete mix design These two methods are outlined to show the main principles adopted. A third method, for medium-strength concretes only, and possibly still in wide use, is the Basic Mix Method of Owens (1973) to which readers are referred, by which a single mix is first designed using a data bank provided.

1(b) referred to above illustrate the two commonly quoted assumptions concerning standard deviation, which are constant standard deviation above a certain level and constant coefficient of variation at lower levels. e. ) ACI (1991) permits either assumption to be made so that standard deviations and margins to be used in design will differ depending on the assumption made, on the specified strength level and on the level at which standard deviation is measured for quality-control purposes. 4 Useful simplifying assumptions There are a number of ‘approximate’ rules which can be used to simplify mix design but it needs to be recognized that they are approximate and that they may lead to unsafe or uneconomic mix designs.
