Design a concrete mixture that has a 28 day compressive strength of 4000 psi and a maximum size aggregate of 0.75 in. The concrete would be placed in a column exposed to freezing and thawing and will be in contact with a soil that has a sulfate content of 0.3%.

Step 1: Assemble information from specifications and local materials

Cement:

Use any type and assume a specific gravity of 3.15

Coarse Aggregate:

Bulk Specific Gravity (BSG) – 2.65

Absorption Capacity – 1.5%

Surface Moisture – 1.0%

Dry-Rodded Unit Weight = 105 lb/ft^3

Fine Aggregate:

Bulk Specific Gravity (BSG) – 2.75

Absorption Capacity – 1.0%

Surface Moisture – 3.0%

Fineness Modulus – 2.7

Step 2: Select Slump

Step 3: Determine the maximum size of the aggregate

Step 4: Estimate the mix water and the air content

Step 5: Choose the water-to-cement ratio

Step 6: Determine the Cement Content

Step 7: Estimate the Coarse Aggregate Content

Step 8: Estimate the Fine Aggregate Content for a cubic yard

Step 10: Summarize batch proportions in a table

Workers’ compensation represents a compromise between the needs of employees and the needs of employers.

 True False

Question 2 (2 points)

Contributory negligence means that an employee knew that the job involved risk; he or she could not expect to be compensated when the risks resulted in accidents and injuries.

 True False

Question 3 (2 points)

There are three types of workers’ compensation insurance: state funds, private insurance, and self-insurance.

 True False

Question 4 (2 points)

Temporary disability:

 Is the state that exists when it is probable that an injured worker, who is currently unable to work, will be able to resume gainful employment with no or partial disability Exists when an injured employee's disability is such that he or she cannot compete in the job market Exists when an injury is minor None of these

Question 5 (2 points)

Which of the following is the whole-person theory of handling permanent partial disability cases?

 Requires a determination of how much the employee could have earned had the injury not occurred. Applied like a subtraction problem. What the worker can do after recuperating from the injury is determined and subtracted from what he or she could do before the accident. Based not just on what the employee earned at the time of the accident, but also on what he or she might have earned in the future. None of the above

Same as Problem 13.5.A, except span = 18 ft, superimposed dead load = 50 psf, live load = 75 psf, f ′ c = 4 ksi, fy = 60 ksi.

*Problem 13.5.A: A one-way solid concrete slab is to be used for a simple span
of 16 ft. In addition to its own weight, the slab carries a superimposed dead
load of 40 psf and a live load of 100 psf. Using the strength method with
f ′c = 3 ksi and fy = 40 ksi, design the slab for minimum overall thickness.
