Temperature Time Factor

Temperature Time Factor (TTF) calculations and compressive strength results are used for estimating concrete strength gain using the maturity method as outlined in ASTM C 1074.  To develop the data used for this type of evaluation, cylinders are cast to be broken at certain intervals. The total curing time in either days or hours and

Water/Cement Ratio Evaluations

Most concrete producers have hundreds of mix designs to choose from.  They cover a multitude of design characteristics to meet the needs of their customers.  Despite this wealth of variation in mix designs, project specifications can prescribe a mix that doesn’t match anything that is already at the plant.  It is often common practice to
