. Some solutions Wet aggregates Pour concrete early in the morning (before sunrise) Wet forms Use Cool water Start early curing Cure with water Use retarders Cool concrete trucks by sprinkling water Use fog spraying 13. What is the modulus of rupture for a concrete with an f’ c = 4000 psi.? The modulus of rupture is given by psi 470 4000 5 . 7 f f 5 . 7 f r ' c r = = 14. Could the average of three consecutive concrete tests be below the specified concrete strength? Explain your answer. No. According to ACI (a) every arithmetic average of any three consecutive strength tests shall equal or exceed f’ c . 15. The tests results for two cases with a specified f’c = 5000 psi are shown in the Table below. Determine if the concrete is acceptable in each case. Explain your answer.

    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.
