Concrete Mix Design – M70 Grade of Concrete (OPC 53 Grade)

 

Concrete mix design – M70 grade of concrete provided here is for reference purpose only. Actual site conditions vary and thus this should be adjusted as per the location and other factors.

A. Design Stipulation:
Characteristic comprehensive Strength @ 28 days = 70 N/mm2
Maximum size of aggregate = 20 mm

E. Abstract:
20 mm = 405 kg/cum
10 mm = 612 kg/cum
r/sand = 340 kg /cum
c/sand = 334 kg/cum
water = 154 kg/cum

Admixture 0.50 % BY WT OF (C+F+MS) ASTP-1 OF BASF

Cube Compressive Strength (N/mm2)
3 days = 49.13
7 Days = 59.57
28 Days = 81.49

Note: Mix design is same for Crane bucket and Pump concrete only admixture dosage will fine tuned by 0.05 to 0.10%
