Concretes are adjusted automatically for adequate cohesion. Provision is made for input of any concrete test data for comparison purposes. Output data from MixSim include tables and graphs relating to water demand, per cent fines, plastic density, compressive strength (cubes or cylinders) and batch quantities taking account of batch size, moisture contents of aggregates and specified slump. D. Dewar, published by E & FN Spon, (1999). 7 using a mix design example. 1 MixSim – key features The main operating sections of the software are Materials database Mix details screen: Materials; Conditions; Specifications; Selected concrete; Selected materials quantities Trials data Tables; Graphs; Mix Comparison; Batchbook.

2. 64 × standard deviation when the specified maximum percentage is 5 per cent. However, taking into account the need for safety to cover time delay in obtaining strength results and other aspects introducing uncertainty, it would be very unwise to operate at this margin. Indeed, compliance requirements for strength are usually set at a level to discourage the use of low values for k. In UK practice values of k of less than 2 would not normally be adopted. The Quality Scheme for Ready Mixed Concrete, QSRMC (2001), for example in the UK, defines the Target Mean Strength (T) for cubes as follows: T ≥ fcu + M for values of T of 27 N/mm2 and above or where T≥ f cu for values of T below 27 N/mm 2 1 + M /27 M is the minimum design margin, k × SD k is the margin factor SD is the current standard deviation for the control mix.

2 Materials database The Materials Database (not illustrated here) separates the materials into four types P Powders – cements and cementitious additions F Fine aggregates – sands, crushed fine material, and mineral fillers C Coarse aggregates – gravels, crushed rock and artificial materials Liquid admixtures – including plasticizers and air-entraining agents The properties, including cost data, are recorded in the database for each material. Dropdown calculation sheets enable the required properties to be evaluated from basic test data.
