Project 3 Concrete for bored piles
Concrete is required for the bored piles for the foundations of a new motorway bridge in the North-East of England. The piles are 35m deep and 600mm diameter. They have a design life of 75 years and the concrete is to be strength class C30/37. The contractor has stated that it would be helpful to the construction sequence if a cube compressive strength of 35 MPa is achieved at 5 days. The results of the analysis of groundwater taken from the location are given in Appendix 1 Details and test results from available sources of aggregates, Portland cement and fly ash are given in Appendices 2 and 3....
