concrete grow dramatically with close to 15 million tons used in con-crete, concrete products and grouts in the u.s. in 2005 (acaa 2006). historically, fly ash has been used in concrete at levels ranging from 15% to 25% by mass of the cementitious material component.the actual amount used varies widely depending on the application, the properties,(doc) design and construction of an industrial sand,the main uses of sand include; 1. concrete sand which is often a principal component of concrete; 2. moulding sand; also known as foundry sand is moistened or oiled and hen shaped into moulds for sand casting: 3. it is the principal component in glass manufacturing. 4. brick manufacturing sand plants use sand as an additive with a mixture of
in conventional concrete, the percentage of sand in the aggregate is 30% to 40%. however, the foamed cement of this process/invention is preferably mixed with an aggregate having a higher ratio of sand. preferably in the range of 40% to 50%. this reduces or eliminates voids in the concrete mixture, since,south african national standard - sabs,en 12390-4, testing hardened concrete compressive strength specification for testing machines. amdt 1 sans 5860, concrete tests dimensions, tolerances and uses of cast test specimens. sans 5861-2, concrete tests sampling of freshly mixed concrete. sans 5861-3, concrete tests making and curing of test specimens. 3 apparatus compression testing machine, that is of sufficient capacity and that

most specifications require that batching be done by mass rather than by volume (astm c 94 or aashto m 157). water and liquid admixtures can be measured accurately by either volume or mass. volumetric batching (astm c 685 or aashto m 241) is used for concrete mixed in con-tinuous mixers. specifications generally require that materials be,5 aggregate specifications and requirements,all fine aggregates, except air-cooled blast furnace slag sand or granulated blast furnace slag sand, must have an acid insoluble content of not less than 40 percent. when using these slag sands, the acid insoluble content must not be less than 25 percent. the acid insoluble content is determined by itm 202.
from on-site slump testing as you pour your concrete, through to testing hardened samples for physical characteristics in our laboratories, our concrete testing includes: sampling of fresh concrete and slump testing on site; making and curing test specimens on your site and in our laboratory; compression and flexural testing; compression tests on molded specimens and on hardened concrete cores; mass per unit volume testing for hardened concrete; securing and testing cores from hardened concrete,8 types of concrete finishes [pdf] - the constructor,trowel finish is the most common and popular finish of concrete used for major types of applications. after the concrete is laid in the formwork and leveled, the trowel is used to smooth and fine-level the surface of concrete. fig 1: trowel finished concrete. trowels are available in both manual and mechanical types.

testing of fresh concrete should be a minimum of 0.028 m3 (1 ft3). the sample should not be taken from the very first or last portion of the batch. a sample should be ob-tained for every 75 m3 (100 yd3) of concrete, at least once per day. the common method of measur-ing air content in fresh concrete is the pressure method (fig. 3). this,chapter 4: construction details, section 40: concrete,where air entraining admixtures are required by the project’s pavement climate region, in accordance with section 40-1.02b(4), “air entrainment,” of the standard specifications, perform verification testing and use quality control testing for acceptance for air content of concrete pavement.
