Mix design Characteristics and Performance for high strength Concrete

Author Name : Sachin, Mr. Yudhvir Yadav

ABSTRACT : In designing concrete mix, the most widely used and most popular methods are the ACI method and BS method. This research paper depicts the result of mix design for high strength concrete. This research involves the procedure of finding out experimentally the most suitable mix in order to obtained desired compressive strength. In this research work 53 grade OPC, smooth textured and round shaped sand, 12mm coarse aggregate were taken to decide the proportion of high strength concrete of grade M60. Each mix two 150 x 300 mm cylinders were cast after checking the slump of the concrete. The specimens demoulded after 24 hours and kept curing for 28 days.
