MIX DESIGNS All mixes in this study were designed in accordance with the Building Research Establishment (BRE 1992) method, recommended by the UK Department of the Environment. Reference should be made therein to tables and graphs alluded to and available for use in this design method. All abbreviations and acronyms in the mix design sheets are those used in BRE’s 1992 method. Chapter 4: mix design calculation sheet for 40 N/mm2 concrete mix (28 day strength) A) NA
