With high performance concrete, it is desirable that the specifications be performance-based. Class P(HPC) is intended for use in prestressed concrete members with a specified concrete compressive strength more than 6.0 ksi (approx. 41.4 MPa) and should be always used for specified concrete strength more than 10.0 ksi (68.9 MPa).

A typical layout of a mill using the kraft chemical pulping process is shown in figure 2-1. Mechanical, semichemical, and sulfite pulp mills differ in detail, particularly in wood preparation, fiber separation, and bleaching, but many of the downstream refining, bleaching, and papermaking processes are similar.

Cement manufacturing is a complex process that begins with mining and then grinding raw materials that include limestone and clay, to a fine powder, called raw meal, which is then heated to a sintering temperature as high as 1450 °C in a cement kiln. In this process, the chemical bonds of the raw materials are broken down and then they are ...

Proportions are an endless subject of debate but the formula of 1 part cement, 2 parts sand and 3 parts gravel by volume is a good starting point. Mix the dry ingredients first and then slowly add water. You want "workable" concrete. As you add water the concrete will go from unworkable to workable to sloppy.
