"Until then, hold your breath under water until you turn blue."

Nope -- that is wrong. There should be no 'until' in there. Either hold breath underwater idefinitely, or give us the information requested!

The quantity of cement contained in a unit volume of concrete or mortar, preferably expressed as weight, but frequently given as bags of cement per cubic yard of concrete, e.g., a 6 ?-bag mix.

RE: cement factor

by Jacky Howe In reply to cement factor

Concrete is made from cement, sand, gravel and water. These ingredients are commonly combined in a 1:2:4 proportion to achieve maximum strength (1 part cement, 2 parts sand, 4 parts gravel). You can buy the dry ingredients, ready mixed in a bag or, for larger quantities you can order the ingredients separately.

Cement must be kept dry, to avoid its quality deteriorating.

If mixing by hand, work on a hard, fairly smooth and waterproof surface.

Estimating How Much Concrete You Need
Measure the area to be concreted and multiply by the thickness to be laid.

Refer to manufacturer's mix guides to work out how much you need.

Add 10 per cent to final figure for wastage.

For bigger jobs of 2-3 cubic metres, you may need to hire a concrete mixer or buy ready-mixed concrete.

Mixing Concrete
Measure sand and gravel onto mixing board. Make a crater in the centre and add cement. Mix together.

Form another crater, add water gradually until pile is well mixed - not too slippy or too crumbly.

Test the mix by using the back of the shovel to flatten. The surface should be close-knit and moist but not showing too much water.

Moving Concrete
Try and mix the concrete close to where you will use it

A bucket can be used for small quantities but you may need a wheelbarrow with a pneumatic tyre for larger loads

Laying scaffolding planks on any soft ground will stop the wheelbarrow from leaving ruts.

Mixing by Machine
Add approximately 2/3 of the required water. Add the coarse aggregate followed by the sand and then the cement. Blend together until a uniform colour is achieved. Add rest of water slowly and sparingly until a workable mix is achieved. Run the mixer for 5 or 6 minutes after all the materials are in the drum.

Even a firm mixture of concrete will flow into shape when tapped or vibrated because the water moves to the top. For this reason the best way to remove air bubbles from the form work side that will be visible when the job is finished is to tap the board firmly with a hammer.

Always protect new concrete from rain until it has hardened. Never lay concrete on extremely hot days because the evaporation during mixing and curing will give a poor result. Curing involves keeping the concrete damp so that the chemical reaction that causes the concrete to harden will continue for as long as necessary. When the slab has hardened, lightly spray with water for the first day and/or cover with wet hessian bags so it can cure slowly.

If you do a good job then the <b>WORD</b> will be <b>PASSED</b> around and you may find employment as a Concreter. You may have to talk to the Project Manager if you don't have a Mixer.
