Question 3

Which of the following statements is/are true?

1) According to Abram’s law, the strength of fully compacted concrete is directly proportional to water-cement ratio.

2) The fineness of cement is expressed in terms of specific surface of cement.

3) The fineness of cement can be calculated by Blaine air permeability method.

4) Coarser cement particles may cause bleeding by settling down in concrete.

Question 4

Void ratio of cement, fine aggregates and coarse aggregates are 55%, 40% and 45% respectively. Design mix proportion 1 : 2 : 6 (by weight) with a water cement ratio of 0.5 is prepared.
