The mix design for M35 Grade Of Concrete for pile foundations provided here is for reference purpose only. Actual site conditions vary and thus this should be adjusted as per the location and other factors.
Grade of Concrete : M35
Characteristic Strength (Fck) : 35 Mpa
Standard Deviation : 1.91 Mpa*
Target Mean Strength : T.M.S.= Fck +1.65 x S.D.
(from I.S 4562000) = 35+ 1.65×1.91
= 38.15 Mpa
Test Data For Material:
Aggregate Type : Crushed
Specific Gravity
Cement : 3.15
Coarse Aggregate : 2.67
Fine Aggregate : 2.62
Water Absorption:
Coarse Aggregate : 0.5%
Fine Aggregate : 1.0 %
Select Water Cement Ratio = 0.43 for concrete grade M35
(From Fig 2. of I.S. 10262 1982)
Select Water Content = 172 Kg
(From IS: 10262 for 20 mm nominal size of aggregates Maximum Water Content = 186 Kg/ M^{3 })
Hence, Cement Content= 172 / 0.43 = 400 Kg / M^{3}
Formula for Mix Proportion of Fine and Coarse Aggregate:
1000(1a_{0})_{ }= {(Cement Content / Sp. Gr. Of Cement) + Water Content +(F_{a }/ Sp. Gr.* P_{f })}
1000(1a_{0})_{ }= {(Cement Content / Sp. Gr. Of Cement) + Water Content +C_{a }/ Sp. Gr.* Pc_{ })}
Where C_{a }= Coarse Aggregate Content
F_{a }= Fine Aggregate Content
P_{f } = Sand Content as percentage of total Aggregates
= 0.36
Pc = Coarse Aggregate Content as percentage of total Aggregates.
= 0.64
a_{0 }= Percentage air content in concrete (As per IS :10262 for 20 mm nominal size of
aggregates air content is 2 %) = 0.02
Hence, 1000(10.02)_{ }= {(400 /3.15) + 172 +(F_{a }/ 2.62 x 0.36)}
Fa = 642 Kg/ Cum^{ }
As the sand is of Zone II no adjustment is required for sand.
Sand Content = 642 Kg/ Cum
1000(10.02)_{ }= {(400 /3.15) + 172 +(C_{a }/ 2.67 x 0.64)}
Hence, Ca = 1165 Kg/ Cum^{ }
From combined gradation of Coarse aggregates it has been found out that the proportion of 53:47 of 20 mm & 10 mm aggregates produces the best gradation as per IS: 383.
Hence, 20 mm Aggregates = 619 Kg
And 10 mm Aggregates = 546 Kg
To obtain slump in the range of 150190 mm water reducing admixture brand SP430 from Fosroc with a dose of 0.3 % by weight of Cement shall be used.
Hence the Mix Proportion becomes:

Mix Design For Concrete Roads As Per IRC152002
ABSTRACT:
The stresses induced in concrete pavements are mainly flexural. Therefore flexural strength is more often specified than compressive strength in the design of concrete mixes for pavement construction. A simple method of concrete mix design based on flexural strength for normal weight concrete mixes is described in the paper.
INTRODUCTION:
Usual criterion for the strength of concrete in the building industry is the compressive strength, which is considered as a measure of quality concrete. however, in pavement constructions, such as highway and airport runway, the flexural strength of concrete is considered more important, as the stresses induced in concrete pavements are mainly flexural. Therefore, flexural strength is more often specified than compressive strength in the design of concrete mixes for pavement construction. It is not perfectly reliable to predict flexural strength from compressive strength. Further, various codes of the world specified that the paving concrete mixes should preferably be designed in the laboratory and controlled in the field on the basis of its flexural strength. Therefore, there is a need to design concrete mixes based on flexural strength.
The type of aggregate can have a predominant effect, crushed rock aggregate resulting in concrete with higher flexural strength than uncrushed (gravel) aggregates for comparable mixes, assuming that sound materials are used. The strength of cement influences the compressive and flexural strength of concrete i.e. with the same watercement ratio, higher strength cement will produce concrete of higher compressive and flexural strength.
MIX DESIGN DETAILS
IRC: 152002 specified that for concrete roads OPC should be used. This code also allowed PPC as per IS: 1489 may also be used. Accordingly OPC + fly ash may be used in concrete roads. However, IS: 4562000 specified that fly ash conforming to grade1 of IS3812 may be used as part replacement of OPC provided uniform blended with cement is essential. The construction sites where batching plants are used this may be practicable. In ordinary sites where mixer or hand mixing are done uniform blending of fly ash with cement is not practicable. At such construction sites, PPC may be used.
TEST DATA FOR MATERIALS AND OTHER DETAILS
1. The grading of fine aggregate, 10 and 20 mm aggregates are as given in Table. 1 ( given in the end). Fine aggregate is of zoneII as per IS:3831970. 10 and 20 mm crushed aggregate grading are single sized as per IS: 3831970.
2. Properties of aggregates
3. Target average flexural strength for all A, B and C mixes
S = S^{’}+ J_{a}o
= 4.5 + 1.65 x 0.5
= 5.3 N/mm^{2} at 28 days age
4. For Mix A and B free W/C ratio with crushed aggregate and required average flexural target strength of 5.3 N/mm^{2} at 28 days from Fig. 1 Curve D ( Figure shown in the end) found to be 0.42. This is lower than specified maximum W/C ratio value of 0.50
Note: In absence of cement strength, but cement conforming to IS Codes, assume from Fig. 1
Curve A and B  For OPC 33 Grade
Curve C and D  For OPC 43 Grade
Take curves C and D for PPC, as PPC is being manufactured in minimum of 43 Grade of strength.
5. Other data’s: The Mixes are to be designed on the basis of saturated and surface dry aggregates. At the time of concreting, moisture content of site aggregates are to be determine. If it carries surface moisture this is to be deducted from the mixing water and if it is dry add in mixing water the quantity of water required for absorption. The weight of aggregates are also adjusted accordingly.
DESIGN OF MIXA WITH PPC
a) Free W/C ratio for the target flexural strength of 5.3 N/mm^{2} as worked out is 0.42
b) Free water for 30 mm slump from Table 2 for 20 mm maximum size of aggregate.
2/3*165 + 1/3*195
= 175 kg/m^{3}
From trials it is found that Retarder Super plasticizer at a dosages of 15gm/kg of cement may reduce 15% water without loss of workability
Then water = 175 – (175 x 0.15) = 148.75 kg/m^{3}
For trials say 149 kg/m^{3}
c) PPC = 149/0.42 = 355 kg/m^{3}
This is higher than minimum requirement of 350 kg/m^{3}
d) Formula for calculation of fresh concrete weight in kg/m^{3}
U_{M } = 10 x G_{a} (100 – A) + C_{M}(1 – G_{a}/G_{c}) – W_{M} (G_{a} – 1)
Where,
U_{m} = Weight of fresh concrete kg/m^{3}
G_{a} = Weighted average specific gravity of combined fine and coarse aggregate bulk, SSD
G_{c} = Specific gravity of cement. Determine actual value, in absence assume 3.15 for OPC and 3.00 for PPC (Fly ash based)
A = Air content, percent. Assume entrapped air 1.5% for 20 mm maximum size of aggregate and 2.5% for 10mm maximum size of aggregate. There are always entrapped air in concrete. Therefore ignoring entrapped air value as NIL will lead the calculation of higher value of density.
W_{m} = Mixing water required in kg/m^{3}
C_{m} = Cement required, kg/m^{3}
Note: The exact density may be obtained by filling and fully compacting constant volume suitable metal container from the trial batches of calculated design mixes. The mix be altered with the actual obtained density of the mix.
U_{m} = 10 x G_{a} (100 – A) + C_{m} (1 – G_{a}/G_{c}) – W_{m} (G_{a} – 1)
= 10 x 2.65 (100 – 1.5) + 355(1 2.65/3.00) – 149 (2.65 1)
= 2405.9 kg/m^{3}
Say 2405 kg/m^{3}
e) Aggregates = 2405 – 355 – 149 = 1901 kg/m^{3}
f) Fine aggregate = From Table 3 for zoneII Fine aggregate and
20 mm maximum size of aggregate, W/C ratio = 0.42, 30 mm slump found to be 35%.
Fine aggregate = 1901 x 0.35 = 665 kg/m^{3}
Coarse aggregate = 1901 – 665 = 1236 kg/m^{3}
10 and 20 mm aggregate are single sized as per IS: 3831970. Let they be combined in the ratio of 1.2:1.8 to get 20 mm graded aggregate as per IS: 3831970
10 mm aggregate = 1236×1.2/3 = 494 kg/m^{3}
20 mm aggregate = 1236×1.8/3 = 742 kg/m^{3}
g) Thus for 4.5 N/mm^{2} flexural strength quantity of materials per cu.m. of concrete on the basis of saturated and surface dry aggregates:
Water = 149 kg/m^{3}
PPC = 355 kg/m^{3}
Fine Aggregate (sand) = 665 kg/m^{3}
10 mm Aggregate = 494 kg/m^{3}
20 mm Aggregate = 742 kg/m^{3}
Retarder Super Plasticizer = 5.325 kg/m^{3}
MIX B WITH OPC
a) Water = 175 – (175 x 0.15) = 149 kg/m^{3} say 149 kg/m^{3}
b) OPC = 149/0.42 = say 355 kg/m^{3}
c) Density: 10 x 2.65 (100 – 1.5) + 355 (1 – 2.65/3.15) – 149 (2.65 – 1)
= 2420.8 kg/m^{3} say 2420 kg/m^{3}
d) Total Aggregates = 2420 – 355 – 149 = 1916 kg/m^{3}
Fine Aggregate = 1916 x 0.35 = say 670 kg/m^{3}
Coarse aggregate = 1916 – 670 = 1246 kg/m^{3}
10 mm Aggregate = 1246×1.2/3 = 498 kg/m^{3}
20 mm Aggregate = 1246×1.8/3 = 748 kg/m^{3}
e) Thus for 4.5 N/mm^{2} flexural strength quantity of materials per cu.m of concrete on the basis of SSD aggregates are given below:
Water = 149 kg/m^{3}
OPC = 355 kg/m^{3}
Fine Aggregate (sand) = 670 kg/m^{3}
10 mm Aggregate = 498 kg/m^{3}
20 mm Aggregate = 748 kg/m^{3}
Retarder Super Plasticizer = 3.550 kg/m^{3}
MIX. C WITH OPC + FLYASH
With the given set of materials increase in cementitious materials = 10.7%
Total cementitious materials = 355×1.107 = 393 kg/m^{3}
Fine Aggregate = 0.6994 – 0.4702 = 0.2292
= 0.2292 x 2650 = 607 kg
Note:
1. Specific gravity of Normal Superplasticizer = 1.15
2. Addition of Flyash reduces 5% of water demand.
Note:
1. For exact W/C ratio the water in admixture should also be taken into account.
2. The W/C ratio of PPC and OPC is taken the same assuming that the strength properties of both are the same. If it is found that the PPC is giving the low strength then W/C ratio of PPC have to be reduce, which will increase the cement content. For getting early strength and in cold climate the W/C ratio of PPC shall also be required to be reduced.
3. PPC reduces 5% water demand. If this is found by trial then take reduce water for calculation.
4. If the trial mixes does not gives the required properties of the mix, it is then required to be altered accordingly. However, when the experiences grows with the particular set of materials and site conditions very few trials will be required, and a expert of such site very rarely will be required a 2^{nd} trial.
5. It may be noted that, for the fly ash concrete the total cementation material is greater but the OP cement content is smaller, the coarse aggregate content is deliberately, the same, the water is reduced and the density is reduced, because of the lower density of fly ash compared with OPC.
CONCLUSION
1. For 4.5 N/mm^{2} flexural strength concrete having same material and requirement, but without water reducer, the PPC and OPC required will be 175/0.42 = 417kg/m^{3}
2. With the use of superplasticizer the saving in cement is 62 kg/m^{3} and water 26 lit/m^{3} for PPC and OPC.
3. In the Fly ash concrete the saving in cement is 122 kg/m^{3} and water 33 lit/m^{3} including utilization of 98 kg/m^{3} of fly ash witch is a waste material.
4. In the financial year 20092010 India has produces 200 million tonnes of cement. In India one kg of cement produce emitted 0.93 kg of CO_{2}. Thus the production of 200 million tonnes of cement had emitted 200 x 0.93 = 186 million tonnes of CO_{2} to the atmosphere.
5. If 50 million tonnes cement in making concrete uses water reducers 7500000 tonnes of cement can be saved. 3750000 KL of potable water will be saved and the saving of Rs. 3300 crores per year to the construction Industry. 6975000 tonnes of CO_{2} will be prevented to be emitted to the atmosphere. The benefits in the uses of water reducers not limited to this. When water reduces shrinkage and porosity of concrete are reduces which provides the durability to concrete structures.
6. India is facing serious air, water, soil, food and noise pollution problems. Every efforts therefore are necessary to prevent pollution on top priority basis.
7. As the stress induced in concrete pavements are mainly flexural, it is desirable that their design is based on the flexural strength of concrete. The quality of concrete is normally assessed by measuring its compressive strength. For pavings, however, it is the flexural strength rather than the compression strength of concrete which determine the degree of cracking and thus the performance of road, and it is imperative to control the quality on the basis of flexural strength.

Dear All,
Here i am giving the mix designs as per IS102622009 which gives to change the procedure for calculating the concrete ingredients

U_{M } = 10 x G_{a} (100 – A) + C_{M}(1 – G_{a}/G_{c}) – W_{M} (G_{a} – 1)
Where,
U_{m} = Weight of fresh concrete kg/m^{3}
G_{a} = Weighted average specific gravity of combined fine and coarse aggregate bulk, SSD
G_{c} = Specific gravity of cement. Determine actual value, in absence assume 3.15 for OPC and 3.00 for PPC (Fly ash based)
A = Air content, percent. Assume entrapped air 1.5% for 20 mm maximum size of aggregate and 2.5% for 10mm maximum size of aggregate. There are always entrapped air in concrete. Therefore ignoring entrapped air value as NIL will lead the calculation of higher value of density.
W_{m} = Mixing water required in kg/m^{3}
C_{m} = Cement required, kg/m^{3}
Note: The exact density may be obtained by filling and fully compacting constant volume suitable metal container from the trial batches of calculated design mixes. The mix be altered with the actual obtained density of the mix.
U_{m} = 10 x G_{a} (100 – A) + C_{m} (1 – G_{a}/G_{c}) – W_{m} (G_{a} – 1)
= 10 x 2.65 (100 – 1.5) + 355(1 2.65/3.00) – 149 (2.65 1)
= 2405.9 kg/m^{3}
Say 2405 kg/m^{3}
e) Aggregates = 2405 – 355 – 149 = 1901 kg/m^{3}
f) Fine aggregate = From Table 3 for zoneII Fine aggregate and
20 mm maximum size of aggregate, W/C ratio = 0.42, 30 mm slump found to be 35%.
Fine aggregate = 1901 x 0.35 = 665 kg/m^{3}
Coarse aggregate = 1901 – 665 = 1236 kg/m^{3}
10 and 20 mm aggregate are single sized as per IS: 3831970. Let they be combined in the ratio of 1.2:1.8 to get 20 mm graded aggregate as per IS: 3831970
10 mm aggregate = 1236×1.2/3 = 494 kg/m^{3}
20 mm aggregate = 1236×1.8/3 = 742 kg/m^{3}
g) Thus for 4.5 N/mm^{2} flexural strength quantity of materials per cu.m. of concrete on the basis of saturated and surface dry aggregates:
Water = 149 kg/m^{3}
PPC = 355 kg/m^{3}
Fine Aggregate (sand) = 665 kg/m^{3}
10 mm Aggregate = 494 kg/m^{3}
20 mm Aggregate = 742 kg/m^{3}
Retarder Super Plasticizer = 5.325 kg/m^{3}
MIX B WITH OPC
a) Water = 175 – (175 x 0.15) = 149 kg/m^{3} say 149 kg/m^{3}
b) OPC = 149/0.42 = say 355 kg/m^{3}
c) Density: 10 x 2.65 (100 – 1.5) + 355 (1 – 2.65/3.15) – 149 (2.65 – 1)
= 2420.8 kg/m^{3} say 2420 kg/m^{3}
d) Total Aggregates = 2420 – 355 – 149 = 1916 kg/m^{3}
Fine Aggregate = 1916 x 0.35 = say 670 kg/m^{3}
Coarse aggregate = 1916 – 670 = 1246 kg/m^{3}
10 mm Aggregate = 1246×1.2/3 = 498 kg/m^{3}
20 mm Aggregate = 1246×1.8/3 = 748 kg/m^{3}
e) Thus for 4.5 N/mm^{2} flexural strength quantity of materials per cu.m of concrete on the basis of SSD aggregates are given below:
Water = 149 kg/m^{3}
OPC = 355 kg/m^{3}
Fine Aggregate (sand) = 670 kg/m^{3}
10 mm Aggregate = 498 kg/m^{3}
20 mm Aggregate = 748 kg/m^{3}
Retarder Super Plasticizer = 3.550 kg/m^{3}
MIX. C WITH OPC + FLYASH
With the given set of materials increase in cementitious materials = 10.7%
Total cementitious materials = 355×1.107 = 393 kg/m^{3}

1. For exact W/C ratio the water in admixture should also be taken into account.
2. The W/C ratio of PPC and OPC is taken the same assuming that the strength properties of both are the same. If it is found that the PPC is giving the low strength then W/C ratio of PPC have to be reduce, which will increase the cement content. For getting early strength and in cold climate the W/C ratio of PPC shall also be required to be reduced.
3. PPC reduces 5% water demand. If this is found by trial then take reduce water for calculation.
4. If the trial mixes does not gives the required properties of the mix, it is then required to be altered accordingly. However, when the experiences grows with the particular set of materials and site conditions very few trials will be required, and a expert of such site very rarely will be required a 2^{nd} trial.
5. It may be noted that, for the fly ash concrete the total cementation material is greater but the OP cement content is smaller, the coarse aggregate content is deliberately, the same, the water is reduced and the density is reduced, because of the lower density of fly ash compared with OPC.
CONCLUSION
1. For 4.5 N/mm^{2} flexural strength concrete having same material and requirement, but without water reducer, the PPC and OPC required will be 175/0.42 = 417kg/m^{3}
2. With the use of superplasticizer the saving in cement is 62 kg/m^{3} and water 26 lit/m^{3} for PPC and OPC.
3. In the Fly ash concrete the saving in cement is 122 kg/m^{3} and water 33 lit/m^{3} including utilization of 98 kg/m^{3} of fly ash witch is a waste material.
4. In the financial year 20092010 India has produces 200 million tonnes of cement. In India one kg of cement produce emitted 0.93 kg of CO_{2}. Thus the production of 200 million tonnes of cement had emitted 200 x 0.93 = 186 million tonnes of CO_{2} to the atmosphere.
5. If 50 million tonnes cement in making concrete uses water reducers 7500000 tonnes of cement can be saved. 3750000 KL of potable water will be saved and the saving of Rs. 3300 crores per year to the construction Industry. 6975000 tonnes of CO_{2} will be prevented to be emitted to the atmosphere. The benefits in the uses of water reducers not limited to this. When water reduces shrinkage and porosity of concrete are reduces which provides the durability to concrete structures.
6. India is facing serious air, water, soil, food and noise pollution problems. Every efforts therefore are necessary to prevent pollution on top priority basis.
7. As the stress induced in concrete pavements are mainly flexural, it is desirable that their design is based on the flexural strength of concrete. The quality of concrete is normally assessed by measuring its compressive strength. For pavings, however, it is the flexural strength rather than the compression strength of concrete which determine the degree of cracking and thus the performance of road, and it is imperative to control the quality on the basis of flexural strength.

Mix Design For M35 Grade Of Concrete
The mix design for M35 Grade Of Concrete for pile foundations provided here is for reference purpose only. Actual site conditions vary and thus this should be adjusted as per the location and other factors.
Grade of Concrete : M35
Characteristic Strength (Fck) : 35 Mpa
Standard Deviation : 1.91 Mpa*
Target Mean Strength : T.M.S.= Fck +1.65 x S.D.
(from I.S 4562000) = 35+ 1.65×1.91
= 38.15 Mpa
Test Data For Material:
Aggregate Type : Crushed
Specific Gravity
Cement : 3.15
Coarse Aggregate : 2.67
Fine Aggregate : 2.62
Water Absorption:
Coarse Aggregate : 0.5%
Fine Aggregate : 1.0 %
MIX DESIGN
Take Sand content as percentage of total aggregates = 36%Select Water Cement Ratio = 0.43 for concrete grade M35
(From Fig 2. of I.S. 10262 1982)
Select Water Content = 172 Kg
(From IS: 10262 for 20 mm nominal size of aggregates Maximum Water Content = 186 Kg/ M^{3 })
Hence, Cement Content= 172 / 0.43 = 400 Kg / M^{3}
Formula for Mix Proportion of Fine and Coarse Aggregate:
1000(1a_{0})_{ }= {(Cement Content / Sp. Gr. Of Cement) + Water Content +(F_{a }/ Sp. Gr.* P_{f })}
1000(1a_{0})_{ }= {(Cement Content / Sp. Gr. Of Cement) + Water Content +C_{a }/ Sp. Gr.* Pc_{ })}
Where C_{a }= Coarse Aggregate Content
F_{a }= Fine Aggregate Content
P_{f } = Sand Content as percentage of total Aggregates
= 0.36
Pc = Coarse Aggregate Content as percentage of total Aggregates.
= 0.64
a_{0 }= Percentage air content in concrete (As per IS :10262 for 20 mm nominal size of
aggregates air content is 2 %) = 0.02
Hence, 1000(10.02)_{ }= {(400 /3.15) + 172 +(F_{a }/ 2.62 x 0.36)}
Fa = 642 Kg/ Cum^{ }
As the sand is of Zone II no adjustment is required for sand.
Sand Content = 642 Kg/ Cum
1000(10.02)_{ }= {(400 /3.15) + 172 +(C_{a }/ 2.67 x 0.64)}
Hence, Ca = 1165 Kg/ Cum^{ }
From combined gradation of Coarse aggregates it has been found out that the proportion of 53:47 of 20 mm & 10 mm aggregates produces the best gradation as per IS: 383.
Hence, 20 mm Aggregates = 619 Kg
And 10 mm Aggregates = 546 Kg
To obtain slump in the range of 150190 mm water reducing admixture brand SP430 from Fosroc with a dose of 0.3 % by weight of Cement shall be used.
Hence the Mix Proportion becomes:
