to limit the alkali content of the portland cement. Based on a recent review of all U.S. state highway agency (SHA) concrete specifications, 28 states impose a limit on the alkali content of portland cement, with 0.60 percent Na 2 O eq maximum being specified as the limit in most cases (TMRC 2019). Although in some cases there are similarities


content with low-alkali cement may increase the alkali concentration of the concrete pore solution and may cause deleterious expansion. However, Shayan and Xu (2004) showed that the use of up to 30% glass aggregate in concrete might not cause deleterious effects, particularly if the alkali content of the concrete is below 3 kg/m3.

If you want detailed calculation you can refer this post for calculation procedure for Nominal mix concrete. Alleged M25 Mix Ratio = 1:1:2. The volume of cement required per cubic meter for M25 grade ratio concrete= (1 / (1+1+2)) * 1.5 = 0.375 m3. Bulk density of cement is 1440 kg/m3. Therefore weight of cement required = 0.375 * 1440 = 540 kg/m3.


Option 1 – Limit the alkali loading of the concrete. Calculate the alkali loading based upon the alkali content of the Portland cement alone; do not include alkalies contained in SCMs. The maximum permissible alkali loading will be in the range of 3 lbs./cubic yard to 5 lbs./cubic yard. If the alkali loading is less than the permissible limit ...


One current practice to minimize the potential for alkali-silica reaction (ASR) is to limit the soda equivalent of the cement or the total alkali content in the concrete, with upper limits for ...


Concrete for XXX members shall comply with the following: Minimum cement content xxx lb/yd3 Note: The limit on minimum cement content is sometimes stated as minimum content of cementitious materials. In an NRMCA review of more than 100 specifications for private work, these limits were noted in 46% of the speci-fications.


The grading and grading limits are usually expressed as the percentage of material passing each sieve. Fig. 5-6 shows these limits for fine aggregate and for one size of coarse aggregate. There are several reasons for specifying grading limits and nominal maximum aggregate size; they affect relative. 82. Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures ...


The alkali content of the cementitious material is 0-6% or less and alkalis from other sources do not exceed 0-2 kg/m3 of concrete. This limit can be met by (a) using a Portland cement with a guaranteed maximum alkali content of 0-6% (b) replacing part of the Portland cement by PFA or GGBS by the requisite amount of PFA or GGBS provided that at ...


At any UK cement works the day to day variation within 25 days production may be up to ± 0 • 15 % about the mean level for the 25 days in question. So in meeting the 3 kg limit the actual alkali content within the concrete could in extreme cases lie in the range 3-5—3-85 kg/m3, the maximum level depending on the alkali content of the cement.

The approximate bulk density of aggregate commonly used in normal weight concrete ranges from about 1200 kg/m3 to 1750 kg/m3 (75 lb/ft3 to 110 lb/ft3) while lightweight concrete aggregates range from 560 kg/m3 to 1120 kg/m3 (35 lb/ft3 to 70 lb/ft3), and heavyweight aggregates is typically over 2100 kg/m3 …


The ∆tol values in Table 3 (2.9-4.6 kg Na2Oeq/m3) are always well above the maximum supplementary alkali input Smax envisaged throughout the service life of concrete structures (1.5 kg Na2Oeq/m3). So, these data show the great ability of the four blended cements to prevent the development of deleterious ASR expansion as well as the ...


M1: Restrict the alkalinity of pore solution, e.g. limit the alkali content of concrete, use of low alkali cement, include PFA, GGBS, etc. M2: Avoid the presence of a critical amount of reactive silica, e.g. identify non-reactive aggregate M3: reduce the access of moisture and maintain the concrete in a sufficiently dry state, e.g. use external

It may be possible in some instances to limit the ingress of water into the concrete, but this will only slow down rather than stop the progress of deterioration. Limit the alkali content of the concrete by minimizing the amount of alkali contributed by the Portland cement. Another solution is to limit or prohibit the use of reactive aggregates ...

Concrete alkali content.The potential for ASR increases as the alkali content of concrete increases. For example, a concept used in Canada addresses the total alkali "loading" in concrete. Using field perfor-mance as a guide, alkali limits are established in concrete to control ASR.

ASTM C 150 has optional limits on the equivalent alkalies in portland cement expressed as %Na 2 O + 0.658 × %K 2 O), often referred to as "Na 2 Oeq" where alkali silica reactivity is a potential problem. The prescribed limit of 0.6% by mass of the cement, which was developed over 40 years ago, has been questioned as not being sufficiently restrictive in some circumstances.

Alkali reactivity: If the aggregates proposed are alkali reactive then the presence of alkali oxides (Nao+0.658 K 2O) in cement have to be carefully examined. Alkali oxides in cement should not be beyond permissible limits i.e. more than 1 %, which may cause cracking and disintegration of concrete …
