Learn how to design a Self Compacting Concrete (SCC) in less than 5 minutes with Quality Mix!

Posted on | Posted in News @at, Tutorials, Videos

We posted a new tutorial video in our Youtube channel! Learn how to design a Self Compacting Concrete (SCC) in less than 5 minutes using Quality Mix, the Mix Design Calculator module by Concrete Quality.

You can watch the video here, or watch it in the Quality Mix Tutorials.

This video shows the Step by Step mix design mode. In the Step by Step mode you tell the software the concrete’s characteristics you want, then select the raw materials you want to use and that’s it! Quality Mix gives you the calculated mix design along with recommendations and warnings for transportation, casting and curing.

You can then save this to your database as a new mix design, as a version of an existing one, or create a trial batch to test it in the lab.

All of this in less than 5 minutes!

    Hello! In order to know the required quantities for your concrete we recommend that you use our concrete mix design optimization tool: Quality Mix. You can download the software and try it out for free.
    Once you input information about your raw materials (aggregates sieve analysis, etc.) Quality Mix will guide you through the mix design process and will ultimately tell you how much of each material you need. You can also watch a video tutorial about this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VXrgFa9TP50

    You can also contact us to request technical consulting to assist you in your mix design. One of our experts will study your case and propose the best solution available, customized for you. Send us an email to contact@concrete-quality.com to ask for a technical consulting quotation.

    Thank you for your comment!
