Optimizing, Concrete Mix


The cost-effectiveness and optimization of mixture proportions for concretes, contain many constituents and are often subject to several performance, constraint, can be difficult and time consuming task. Statistical experiment design and analysis methods have been developed specifically for the purpose of optimizing mixtures. This study is an attempt to enable the people to achieve the lowest cost of Concrete Mix every time they design the mix before actual trails. It also illustrates that how one can find the most economical combination of various constituents available to achieve the desired strength. The effect of various options available in the market has also been analyzed. The performance of concrete changes with change in various constituents and conditions, that’s why it is necessary to design an optimum concrete mix according to change constituents and their combinations.
