Abstract:

This document describes the aggregate suspension mixture proportioning method. The method is suitable for normalweight concrete with workability ranging from zero-slump to self-consolidating. This method may not be suitable for mass concrete mixture proportioning. It is adapted from a method originally published by Koehler and Fowler (2007).
