  • Appendix JTips for Working With Concrete

    Concrete is made from cement, sand, gravel andwater. These ingredients are commonly combined ina 1:2:3 proportion to achieve maximum strength (1part cement, 2 parts sand, 3 parts gravel). Theamount of water used to mix the ingredients is by farthe most important factor in determining the nalstrength of the concrete: Use the least amount ofwater that will still give you a workable mix.Generally between 20 and 30 L of water is mixed witheach 50 kg bag of cement (see "Mixing Concrete"section below).

    Choice of Ingredients:Cement:The most common used cement is Portland. Itshould be dry, powdery and free of lumps. Whenstoring cement try to avoid all possible contact withmoisture. Store away from exterior walls, o dampoors, and stacked close together to reduce aircirculation.Water: In general, water t for drinking is suitablefor mixing concrete. Impurities in the water mayaect concrete, setting time, strength, shrinkage orpromote corrosion of reinforcement.Sand: Sand should range is size from less than .25mm to 6.3 mm. Sand from sea shores, dunes orriver banks is usually too ne for normal mixes.

  • However, you can sometimes scrape about 30 cm ofne surface sand o and nd coarser, more suitablesand beneath.Gravel: Optimum gravel size in most situations isabout 2 cm. Finer gravel may be used to ll theannular between the borehole and the well casing.

    It is extremely important to have clean sand andgravel. Even small amounts of silt, clay or bits oforganic matter will ruin concrete.

    To see if sand is good for making concrete, ll awide-mouthed jar half full of the sand. Cover with water,shake the mixture vigorously, and then allow it to standfor three hours. There will be a distinct line dividingsand suitable for concrete and that which is too ne. Ifmore than 10% of the sand is too ne, concrete madefrom it will be weak. Other sand must be found or siltand clay washed out of the available sand. To washsand, put it in a drum, cover it with water, stirthoroughly, let stand for a minute, and pour o theliquid. One or two such treatments will remove most ofthe very ne material and organic matter.Estimating Quantities of material needed.

    Calculate the volume of concrete needed.1.Estimate the total volume of dry material bymultiplying the required volume of concrete by 1.65to get the total volume of dry loose material needed(this includes 10% extra to compensate for losses).


    Add the numbers in the volumetric proportion thatyou will use to get a relative total. This will allowyou later to compute fractions of the total neededfor each ingredient. (i.e. 1:2:4 = 7).


    Determine the required volume of cement, sand andgravel by multiplying the total volume of drymaterial (Step 2) by each components fraction ofthe total mix volume (Step 3) i.e. the total amountcement needed = volume of dry materials * 1/7.

  • Calculate the number of bags of concrete bydividing the required volume of cement by the unitvolume per bag of cement (0.0332 m3 per 50 kg bagof cement or 1 ft3 per 94 lb bag).


    For example, for a 2 m x 2 m x 10 cm thick pumppad:

    Required volume of concrete = 0.40 m31.Estimated volume of dry material = 0.4 x 1.65 =0.66 m3

    2.Mix totals = 1+2+4 = 7 (1:2:4cement:sand:gravel)

    3.Ingredient Volumes: 0.66 x 1/7 = .094 m3 cement0.66 x 2/7 = .188 m3 sand0.66 x 4/7 = .378 m3 gravel


    # Bags of cement: 0.094 m3 cement / .0332 m3per 50 Kg bag= 2.83 bags of cement (use three bags)


    Concrete ReinforcementConcrete can be made much stronger by reinforcing itwith steel rods (rebar or rerod) that are embedded inthe concrete. Reinforced concrete should be at least 7.5cm thick. Rerod should take up 0.5% to 1% of the cross-sectional area. The rebar should be placed within theconcrete form and be located at least 2 cm from theedge of the form. It should be placed in a grid pattern sothat there is never more than 3 times the nal concretethickness between adjacent rods. (With a nal thicknessof 10 cm use a grid spacing of 25 cm). All intersectionswhere rods cross should be tied with wire. The properspace from the bottom of the pour in a slab is one thirdthe height of the nal thickness. It can be achieved bysetting the rod grid on a few small stones before theconcrete is poured or simply pulling the rebar grid acouple of centimeters up into the concrete after someconcrete has been spread over the whole pour.Mixing Concrete

  • Concrete must be thoroughly mixed to yield thestrongest product.A. Mixing by Machine: Add about 10% of the mixingwater in the drum. Then gradually add water uniformlywith the dry materials leaving another 10% to be addedafter the dry materials are in the drum. Allow 5 or 6minutes after all the materials are in the drum.B. Mixing by Hand: The mixing area must be both cleanand water tight. Use the following procedure:

    Spread the sand evenly over the mixing area.1.Spread cement evenly over the sand and combineuntil the colour is uniform.

    2.Spread the mixture out evenly and add the gravelon it and mix it thoroughly again. All dry materialsshould be thoroughly mixed before water is added.


    Shape dry mix into a pile and form a hollow bowl inthe centre. Pour some of the water into the bowl,gradually mixing in the dry mixture until all thewater is adsorbed. Re-form the pile and bowl, addand mix more water. Repeat until concrete is readyto pour.


    A workable mix should be smooth and plastic (not wetand runny or dry and crumbly). If the mix is too wet, addsmall amounts of sand and gravel (in the properproportions) until the mix is workable. If the mix is toosti, add small amounts of water and cement until themix is workable. Note the amounts of materials addedfor future batches.FinishingOnce the concrete is poured into the form, its surfaceshould be worked to and even nish. Where the surfacewill later be walked on it should be kept somewhatrough to prevent people from slipping when it gets wet.This texture can be achieved by nishing with a woodenoat (trowel) or by lightly brushing the surface.

  • After the forms are lled the concrete must be cureduntil it reaches the required strength. Curinginvolves keeping the concrete damp so that thechemical reaction that causes the concrete to hardenwill continue for as long as necessary. Once theconcrete dries the chemical hardening will cease andcannot be reactivated. The best way to keep theconcrete wet in very hot countries is to plug todrainage channel soak-away pit and then ll theconcrete pad and drainage channel with water. Watercan be added as needed to keep the concretecovered.

    Another easy way to keep the concrete from hardeningtoo quickly is to cover the exposed surface with a dampprotective cover. The covers can be canvas, emptyconcrete bags, burlap, palm leaves, or straw. Thecovering should be kept damp so that it will not absorbwater from the concrete.It is a good idea to place many thorn branches over thepad area and appoint local people to watch over the padto ensure that people do not walk on it during thecuring process.

    The concrete forms can be removed in 3 to 6 hours ifno load is on the structure. The pad will take 4-7days to harden completely if it is going to be moistcured. If possible, wait this long before nishinginstallation of the pump.
