Title: Concrete Mix Design: What To Look For

Description: Concrete Mix Design can be as simple as the time-honored 1:2:3 blend of cement, sand, and stone. Or it can be as complicated as 1, 2, 3, or 4 cementitious materials and up to 5 aggregate bins. But there are a few fundamental principles that apply to all concrete mixes, and understanding those principles can help you troubleshoot, modify, or adjust a mix to produce the results that you need.

Learning Objectives
1. Understand why water-control is essential.
2. Know what to look for in aggregate size, shape, and textures
3. Recognize the advantages and disadvantages of supplementary cementitious materials and admixtures.
