Abstract:

Tests in accordance with the Corps of Engineers Method of Test for Concrete Mixer Performance CRD-C 55 were made on a new 16-cu-ft-capacity, laboratory, tilting concrete mixer to determine its suitability for mixing concrete containing aggregate up to 6 in. in size, and structural concrete of high cement content. Three mixtures with aggregates graded up to 6 in., 3 in., and 38 in., respectively, were used in the evaluation. Each mixture was evaluated individually. Results indicated that the mixer would blend the constituents into a uniform mixture if the charging and mixing procedures developed in this investigation are used for each type of mixture. Author
