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,

Importance of Aggregate Gradation of concrete slab

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).

Concrete Aggregates

Fine aggregates contain particles in the size range 75 m to 4.75 mm, and coarse aggregates from 4.75 to about 40 mm, except for mass concrete which may contain particles up to 150 mm. Most natural mineral aggregates, such as sand and gravel, have a bulk density of 1520 to 1680 kg/cum and produce normal-weight concrete with approximately 2400 kg/m3 unit weight.

Aggregate Sizing Explained

Jan 15, 2016Aggregate serves as a reinforcement to add strength to composite materials such as concrete. Aggregates can be categorized into three groups: fine aggregate, coarse aggregate, or all-in aggregate. Fine aggregate, such as concrete or masonry sand is defined as material that mostly passes through a 4.75 mm IS sieve.
