Procedure *Select W/C, W/C+P (W/CM) Strength: f cr = f c + 1.34S [psi, MPa] f cr = f c + 2.33S - 3.45, MPa = f c + 2.33S - 500, psi f cr = required average strength f c = specified strength S = standard deviation NOTE: X i = individual strength test, a test is an average of two cylinders @ 28 days = average of n strength tests. )] 1 n ( ) X 2 X i [( 2 / 1 S - ÷ - = X

Durability: Exposure conditions as: wear, freezing and thawing, deicer salts, sulfate exposure, etc. Non-air-entrained/air-entrained Exposures: Mild: indoors or outdoors where there is no exposure to f & t or deicing salts, may use entrained air to improve workability. Moderate: some f & t occurs, but concrete is not exposed to moisture or free water for long periods prior to freezing, no exposure to deicing salts. Severe: f & t of saturated concrete, exposure to deicing salts.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
