Title: Concrete Mix Proportioning for Pumping - Some Influences of Material Properties - A Graphical Approach to Optimum Graduation

Author(s): Francis C. Wilson

Publication: Special Publication

Volume: 46

Issue:

Appears on pages(s): 25-46

Keywords: admixtures; aggregate graduation; fineness; mechanical properties; mix proportioning; particle size distribution; placing; porosity; pumped concrete; pumping; sands; saturation; water-cement ratio; workability

Abstract:
For practical placement via pipe and hose, concrete, in addition to other requisite properties, should be pumpable, a property closely related to workability, and influenced by variations in the properties of the mix ingredients.
