  • Effects of Aggregate Properties on Concrete -

    Variation in the size of Aggregates changes the water demand, cement content, micro-cracking (strength) in concrete. It also effects pumpability, and durability of concrete. Grading of aggregates depends on the proportions of coarse and fine aggregate. If grading of aggregate is varied, it also changes cement paste content (cost economy), workability of the mix,

  • What is the effect of coarse aggregate size in

    1. The coarse aggregates should be properly graded, and the gradation becomes more and more important as we increase the maximum size of coarse aggregate because of greater voids, which needs to be filled to attain the desired compressive strength. As void fraction increases on increasing the size of aggregates. 2.

  • Effect of Maximum Aggregate Size on the

    The strength of (normal or high-strength) concrete is affected by the maximum size of a well-graded coarse aggregate. Concrete mixes containing larger coarse aggregate particles need less mixing water than those containing smaller coarse aggregates, In other words, small aggregate particles have more surface area than a large aggregate particle.

  • The Effect of Aggregate Properties on Concrete

    Aggregate is classified as two different types, coarse and fine. Coarse aggregate is usually greater than 4.75 mm (retained on a No. 4 sieve), while fine aggregate is less than 4.75 mm (passing the No. 4 sieve). The compressive aggregate strength is an important factor in the selection of aggregate.
