Title: Proposed Revision of ACI 211-65:
Recommended Practice for Selecting Proportions for No-Slump Concrete
Author(s): ACI Committee 211
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 153-170
Keywords: aggregate size: aggregates; coarse aggregates: compaction tests: concrete durability; consistency tests: fine aggregates; concretes: measuring instruments: mix proportioning; no-slump concrete: sluml; tests; test equipment; water-cement ratio.
Abstract:This standard is intended as a supplement to ACI Standard "Recommended Practice for Selecting Proportions for Normal and Heavyweight Concrete (ACI 211.1-74)." The standard describes a procedure for proportioning concretes having slumps in the range of zero to 1 in. and consistencies below this range, for aggregates up to 1 1/2 in. maximum size. Suitable equipment for measuring such consistencies is described. Tables similar to those in ACI 211.1-74 are provided which, along with laboratory tests on physical properties of fine and coarse aggregate yield information for obtaining concrete proportions for a trial mixture. Examples of the use of these tables, in conjunction with tables in ACI 211.1-74 are given. An appendix provides complete conversion of all tabular data to metric system units and shows a sample problem worked out with metric values.
