Requirements of concrete mix design should be known before calculations for concrete mix. Mix design is done in the laboratory and samples from each mix designed is tested for confirmation of result. But before the mix design process is started, the information about available materials, strength of concrete required, workability, site conditions etc. are required to be known.
Pumped concrete offers the advantage of high concrete installation rates and great construction site flexibility. The critical factors influencing the pumpability of the concrete are: Low water content to prevent segregation and bleeding. Optimised mix design with efficient use of fines and cements. Cement and aggregate type.
