The dry volume of concrete mixture is always greater than the wet volume. The ratio of dry volume to the wet volume of concrete is 1.54. So 1.54 Cum of dry materials (cement, sand and aggregate) is required to produce 1 Cum of concrete. Volume of Cement required = 1/(1+2+4) X 1.54 = 1/7 X 1.54 = 0.22 Cum

increase in aggregate size results in a decrease in the compressive strength of concrete. Cook (1989) showed that, for compressive strengths in excess of 69 MPa (10,000 psi), smaller sized coarse aggregate produces higher strengths for a given water-to-cement ratio. In fact, it is generally agreed that, although larger coarse aggregates can be used

It is known that the smaller size aggregate produced higher compressive strength; preferably, the maximum particle size of the coarse aggregate should be set to 20 mm or less. Fine Aggregate It is preferable that a finer molecule of the fine aggregate be 2.8 to 3.0, to ensure derivable fluidity of the concrete and reduce the viscosity.

Firstly the definition of maximum aggregate size in concrete is the smallest sieve through which 100% of the aggregates will pass. The nominal size of aggregate is the smallest sieve which can retain more than 15% of the total aggregates, though this is sometimes taken as the next sieve size down from the maximum aggregate size.

More### Shape, Size - Coarse Aggregates

Coarse aggregates are classified into two main groups: (i) single-size aggregate and (ii) graded aggregate. Single-size aggregate is based on a nominal size specification. It contains about 85 to 100 percent of the material which passes through that specified size of the sieve and zero to 25% of which is retained in the next lower sieve.

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.

At a given water ratio, within the range employed in most structural concrete, smaller maximum sizes of aggregate will tend to produce higher concrete strengths than larger ones. 2. The larger sizes will require less mixing water and hence, for a given cement factor, will produce concrete of lower water-ratio than the smaller sizes. 3.

Dec 01, 2000 Q.: I've heard that pea-gravel concrete shrinks more than concrete made with a larger maximum-size coarse aggregate. Why? A.: Cement paste shrinks and most aggregates don't, so increasing the aggregate content (reducing the paste content) reduces shrinkage. To produce a workable concrete, a small maximum-size aggregate such as pea gravel requires a higher sand content than
