Concrete Mix Designer 1.0.0

An advanced tool that helps engineers calculate the compute ratio between cement, water, and coarse and fine aggregate for designing concrete mixes
Concrete Mix Designer is a lightweight software application built specifically for helping engineers calculate the compute ratio between cement, water, and coarse and fine aggregate for designing concrete mixes according to the ACI (American Concrete Institute) standards.

Straightforward layout

You are welcomed by a clean interface that allows you to carry out most operations with minimal effort. The dedicated parameters are easy-to-configure but you need to have some knowledge in the field of engineering for understanding the terminology.

Main features

Concrete Mix Designer gives you the possibility to select the type of concrete (precast, reinforced cast, or prestressed) and construction (e.g. pavement and slabs, reinforced foundation walls and footing, mass concrete, building columns).

You may also opt for an air entrained mode or non-air entrained, check the built-in tables for the relation between water/cement and average compressive and strength of concrete.

The utility enables you to specify the exposure condition (e.g. fresh water, sulfate), pick the average compression strength and average specified compressive strength, and choose the construction slump.

There are also several dedicated parameters for helping you select the maximum size of aggregate and coarse and fine aggregate absorption and moisture content, specify the gravity of water, cement, and coarse and fine aggregate, and set up other dedicated parameters as well.

Bottom line

To sum things up, Concrete Mix Designer proves to be a reliable application that comes packed with a handy suite of features for helping you calculate the compute ratio between cement, water, and coarse and fine aggregate for designing concrete mixes, and is suitable especially for advanced users.
