Abstract : Approximately 150 mixtures were made in this investigation. The effects of the size of test specimen, the size and type of coarse aggregate, the grading of the fine aggregate, the type of cement, and the type and quantity of water-reducing admixture were studied. The results indicate that a water-cement ratio of approximately 0.30, by weight, which generally requires the use of 10 bags of portland cement per cubic yard of concrete, a limestone, quartzite, or traprock coarse aggregate, and continuous moist curing for at least 28 days are required to produce workable concrete with a compressive strength in excess of 10,000 psi at 90 days.
