Water content is a critical aspect of any mix, and it’s essential to get it right in every scenario. Everything from the time of day to how far you’re digging into the aggregate stockpile can affect mix water needs. This course will address how to calculate mix water adjustments based on fine or coarse aggregate moisture contents. We will review how to calculate aggregate moisture content, identify the differences between moisture content and absorption capacity, and learn how to determine how much mix water is required based on aggregate moisture conditions.
At the conclusion of this webinar, you will be able to:
- Differentiate between various aggregate moisture conditions and how they affect batch water needs
- Calculate aggregate moisture content
- Calculate the necessary moisture adjustment based on aggregate moisture content
