It was found that the Indian standard recommends grade 25 concrete for water retaining structures and all other codes recommend higher grades of concrete for water retaining structures Furthermore it was observed that concrete in almost all the structures which were design and built based on BS 5337 and CP 2007 are in good conditions

At present recommendations given in BS 8007 are used for design and construction of water retaining structures in Sri Lanka in which minimum recommended grade of concrete is grade 35 Furthermore the maximum cement content is limited to 400 kgm3 in the present code3790
Concrete Specification The concrete mix is the same as normal concrete with the addition of PUDLO at a rate of 2 by weight of cement this equates to 8kg per 1m3 of concrete The concrete should contain a minimum of 350kgm3 of cement and the watercement ratio should not exceed 04The target slump should be 100mm 20mm3714
Jun 24 2019018332Plain concrete It is the simplest kind of concrete that does not require any reinforcement The most commonly used mix is cement aggregates and water in the proportion 124 The density of this concrete is between 2200 and 2500 kgcubic metre whereas its compressive strength is in the range of 200 to 500 kgsquare centimetres3051
There are inconsistent in the concrete requirements among different specifications Examples include Max cementitiouscontent for liquid retaining structure A Particular WSD project 430kgm3 GS 450kgm3 ASD 440kgm3 Min cementitiouscontent for Grade 20 Concrete plain concrete BD 290kgm3 GS 270kgm33492
CONCLUSION 1 For 45 Nmm 2 flexural strength concrete having same material and requirement but without water reducer the PPC and OPC required will be 175042 417kgm 3 2 With the use of superplasticizer the saving in cement is 62 kgm 3 and water 26 litm 3 for PPC and OPC 3 In the Fly ash concrete the saving in cement is 122 kgm 3 and water 33 litm 3 including utilization of 984160
When to use waterproof concrete Waterproof concrete also called integral concrete is generally best for water retaining structures and less critical basements that are less than 10 meters deep where soil conditions are not aggressive and where the consequences of flooding are less severe4676

For a concrete mix 136 and water cement ratio 06 both by weight the quantity of water required per bag is 10 kg 12 kg 14 kg 16 kg For the design of retaining walls the minimum factor of safety against overturning is taken as 15 20 25 30 The factor which affects workability is water content and its temperature4969
Standard mixes IS 4562000 has designated the concrete mixes into a number of grades as M10 M15 M20 M25 M30 M35 and M40 In this designation the letter M refers to the mix and the number to the specified 28 day cube strength of mix in Nmm24522
Feb 12 2018018332Concrete Grade C6020 This concrete grade is used for the most important part of the structural concrete element which is Column and Shear wall The highest quality concrete grade is the high strength concrete grade This is the grade used for beams and girders columns and other major structural members It can be used also for retaining wall4394
Requirements Optional use of Specified the use of Concrete grade 40 or Concrete grade 40 must Concrete grade 40 or PFA must be used PFA amp GGBS CSF with either PFA above must contain contain PFA Grade 50 or above PFA must be added or GGBS wither PFA or GGBS 60 must contain CSF Grade 35 or below either CSF may be used3851
Use of Sea Water for Mixing Concrete Mixes Seawater contains a small quantity of sodium and potassium saltThe salinity of seawater is 35 percentThese salt can be reacted with reactive aggregate and alkali cement Therefore sea water should not be used for the mixing of concrete if the aggregate is potentially reactive3822
At the lowest level Grade 1 there is Watertight which simply means that water will not run or flow freely through the concrete but minor seepage and dampness is accepted at the upper level Grades 3 there is Dampproof which not only requires there to be no visible water ingress or dampness but also that very high levels of watervapour resistance will be achieved4061
Sep 17 2010018332Concrete can be used for all standard buildings both single storey multistory and containment retaining structures and bridges LEARNING OUTCOMES After completing the unit you should be able to 1 identify the principle of reinforced concrete structure 2 know the function of concrete in structure 4 identify the reinforced concrete3949
Water Only use clean fresh water for concrete A rule of thumb is if the water is suitable for drinking it is suitable for concrete Avoid using water with a high mineral content such as bore or sea water Mix onsite and save Mixing concrete onsite is the cheapest way of producing quality concrete provided the correct procedures are3294

In all other cases the designated mix should be used 3 Exposure classes XC14 and XF1 are defined in BS 85001 Table A1 4 In this situation ST4 mix may be used only for small quantities of concrete In all other cases the appropriate designated mix should be used4453
Jan 09 2018018332The characteristics strength is defined as the strength of concrete below which not more than 5 of the test results are expected to fall As per IS 456 concrete mix always designed for the target strength computed as Target strength Characteristics strength 165 x standard deviation M20 is the minimum grade of concrete for use in RCC work 24535
