A simple method for the design of concrete mixes in the Arabian Gulf

Auther : MAHFUZ S. EL-RAYYES

Department of Civil Engineering, University of Kuwait

 

ABSTRACT

 

This paper presents a concrete mix-design method well-suited to the local conditions prevailing in the Arabian Gulf. The proposed method takes into consideration the variations linked with the intrinsic properties of the locally available concrete constituent materials, which are commonly used in Kuwait and in neighbouring regions. Besides being quite practical, the method yields reliable results, covers all practical maximum sizes of coarse aggregate and serves a wide range of water / cement ratios and of workabilities. The mix-design procedure is illustrated by a numerical example given at the end.
