- Steps
Step 1. Estimation
E
of
o mixing water
w
and airr content baased on you
ur targeted sslump and M
MSA.

Therefore, the water requirementt is 385 lb/yd

d3 and the reecommendedd air contentt is 3 %

Step 2. Selection
S
of water/cemeent ratio.

Thus, thee estimate fo

or required w/c
w ratio to give a 28-dayy strength off 4000 psi is 0.57

Step 5. Calculation

of cement content.

W) = 1251 lb
lb/yd3

Step 7. Estimation of Fine Aggregate Content

Water = 385 lb / 62.4 lb/ft3

= 6.17 ft3

Cement = 675.44 lb / (3.15 62.4 lb/ft3) = 3.44 ft3

CA = 1251 lb / (2.68 62.4 lb/ft3)

= 7.483 ft3

Air = 3 % 27 ft3

= 0.81 ft3
Total

= 17.90 ft3

Thus, FA = 27 17.90 = 9.1 ft3

FA weight = 9.1 ft3 (2.67 62.4 lb/ft3) = 1516 lb/yd3

Water = 3.85 lb

Cement = 6.75 lb

FA = 15.16 lb

Step 8. Moisture Correction

FA: 15.16 + (2.37/100) 15.16 = 15.52 lb
CA: 12.51 + (-0.81/100) 12.51 = 12.41 lb
Water: 3.85 - (2.37/100)15.16 - (-0.81/100)12.51 = 3.58 lb
Cement: 6.57 lb

CA = 12.51 lb
