This guide is intended as a supplement to ACI 211.1. A procedure is presented for proportioning concrete that has slumps in the range of zero to 25 mm (1 in.) and consistencies below this range, for aggregates up to 75 mm (3 in.) maximum size. Suitable equipment for measuring such consistencies is described. Tables and charts similar to those in ACI 211.1 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. This document also includes appendices on proportioning mixtures for roller-compacted concrete, concrete roof tile, concrete masonry units, and pervious concrete for drainage purposes. Examples are provided as an aid in calculating proportions for these specialty applications.
