    Properties of Aggregates: Composition: For use in concrete, aggregates should not be included in materials that can react with alkali in cement. Size: The largest possible size of aggregate results in a reduction in water requirement, cement content and reduction of drying shrinkage. The maximum size of coarse aggregate should be less than: One-fourth of the minimum dimension of concrete

    Aggregates make up some 60 -80% of the concrete mix. Fine Aggregate Vs Coarse Aggregate-Fine aggregates generally consist of natural sand or crushed stone with most particles passing through a 3/8-inch sieve.

  • How Coarse Aggregate Affects Mix Design of Concrete?

    Coarse aggregate is one of the essential components of concrete and occupies the largest volume in the mix. That is why it greatly affects the concrete mix design. Its properties such as strength, maximum size, shape, and water absorption influence water demand, the quantity of cement and fine aggregate in concrete mixture.

    Coarse aggregates are any particles greater than 0.19 inch, but generally range between 3/8 and 1.5 inches in diameter. Gravels constitute the majority of coarse aggregate used in concrete with crushed stone making up most of the remainder. Natural gravel and sand are usually dug or dredged from a pit, river, lake, or seabed.

  • Understanding the Role of Aggregates in Concrete

    Coarse aggregates are defined as any material greater than 4.75 mm. A coarse aggregate is also identified as any aggregate retained in a #4 sieve. Fine aggregates are any material less than 4.75 mm that can pass through a #4 sieve and is retained on a #200 sieve. Why do we use aggregates in concrete? There are many reasons. Perhaps the biggest

  • Uses of Aggregates

    Concrete aggregates are composed of geological materials such as gravel, sand and crushed rock.
