FAQs
How does stone size affect the concrete strength?
Changing the stone size from 6 mm to 10 mm (or 10 mm to 14 mm or 14 mm to 20 mm) will reduce the water required to obtain a nominal 75 mm slump by about 10 L/m3. It is the reduction in water not the increase in stone size that increases the strength of the concrete.
What does it mean to cure concrete?
Curing concrete means keeping the concrete wet to allow the mix water to chemically react with cement to develop the required strength. Curing time is the time taken for concrete to reach its optimum strength.
What is a practical method to cure concrete?
Covering the concrete with plastic or spraying with a curing compound is the most practical method.
What concrete mix can be used for a home driveway?
A good practical mix would be 1:2:3 by volume mix. This means 1 part cement to 2 parts sand to 3 parts stone, measured with a container (e.g. a 10 litre bucket). Do not measure your mix by shovelfuls.
Why should a shovel not be used to measure materials for concrete or mortar?
Cement is dry and flows easily while sand is usually damp and sticks together. The result is a shovelful of cement will lie fairly flat on the shovel and thus will be less in volume than a shovelful of sand.
