Concrete crushing

About a month ago on 19th February, my materials & construction class had a hands-on lab where we were to make a batch of concrete that would be compression tested. The test was on the 17th of April.

Our mix consisted of:
  • 40oz Cement
  • 45oz Water
  • 45oz Sand
  • 40oz Aggregate
  • 1ft² sheet of fiber glass cut up
  • 1ft² sheet metal mesh cut up
  • Concrete dye
  • 65 paper clips
Our volume had a 6" diameter and was 9" tall.
The design mix held 197,000 lbs!!
