Target mean strength of concrete


Target mean strength of concrete for M50 grade concrete assuming accepted proportion of low results as 1 in 20 fck = fck+t*s = 50 + 1.65*5 = 58.25 N/mm2

Selection of water cement ratio


From Fig.1 of IS 10262-1982 for 28 days target mean strength of 58.25N/mm2 after interpolation W/C ratio = 0.3 (rounded off to 4 decimals)

Selection of Water Content and Fine to Total aggregate ratio


These values are as per standard conditions From table 4 of IS 10262-1982 for max. size of aggregate as 20mm for one cum of M50 absolute vol. of concrete Water content (assuming ssd agg.) = 180 kg Sand to Total aggregate ratio = 25 %

After correction is applied Water content (assuming ssd agg.) (W) Sand to Total agg. ratio (p x 100)

180 Kg

22.5 %

Calculation of Cement content


Cement Content (C ) = 180 / 0.3 = 600 Kg Cement content is adequate as per table 5 of IS456-2000 assuming RCC (300Kg)

Calculation of Aggregate content


As per the formula given vide 3.5.1 of IS 10262-1982 with usual notations

V = [ W + C/Sc + 1/p. fa/Sfa ] x 1/1000 (for calculating fine aggregate content) Absolute Volume of fresh concrete Sand content (fa) = = 0.98 359.965 Kg

V = [ W + C/Sc + 1/(p-1). Ca/Sca ] x 1/1000 (for calculating Coarse aggregate content) Coarse aggregate content (Ca) = 1329.45 Kg

The mix proportion as worked out as per IS 10262-1982 is Wt/cum 1kg of cem 50kg of cem Water 180 0.3 15 Cement 600 1 50 Fine aggregate 359.965 0.599942 29.99712 Coarse aggregate 1329.45 2.215757 110.7879
