The Effect of Aggregate Properties on Concrete Concrete is a mixture of cementious material, aggregate, and water. Aggregate is commonly considered inert filler, which accounts for 60 to 80 percent of the volume and 70 to 85 percent of the weight of concrete

Get PriceImportance of Aggregate on Mix Design The void content of a pervious concrete mixture is determined by the characteristics of the ingredients and how they are proportioned. More so than in any other concrete mix design, coarse aggregate properties affect the proportions of all other materials within a pervious concrete mix
Get PriceThe aggregate impact value is a measure of resistance to sudden impact or shock, which may differ from its resistance to gradually applied compressive load. Procedure o f Aggregate Impact Test The test sample consists of aggregates sized 10.0 mm 12.5 mm. Aggregates may be dried by heating at 100-110 C for a period of 4 hours and cooled
Get PriceJan 29, 2020 In Part 2, I will make some suggestions on the factors that lead to an increase or decrease in the water demand of a mix and describe the trade-offs in a mix design for achieving the required strength and durability while still getting a placeable and workable concrete. The go-to document in the concrete industry for mix design has, for many
Get PriceConcrete Mix Design Procedure. Data Required for Concrete Mix Design (i) Concrete Mix Design Provision ⦁ Characteristic Compressive Strength needed in the field at 28 days grade designation = M 25 ⦁ Maximum size of aggregate = 20 mm ⦁ Workability = 55-75 mm ( slump value ) ⦁ Degree of quality control = Good ( as per IS 456 )
Get PriceIf the specific gravity of aggregate is not known its value for un crushed aggregate may be taken as 2.6 and 2.7 for crushed aggregate may be assumed as shown on curves A and B of the Fig. 20.11. The aggregate content is determined by subtracting the weights of cement and water content from the weight of fresh concrete read from the Fig. 20.11
Get PriceSep 06, 2012 Concrete shrinkage can significantly impact the performance of slabs. Countless slab investigations for nationwide retail distribution firms have shown that a single mix or slab design does not provide consistent performance in different regions of the country. Concrete is made from locally-available materials and these materials determine the
Get Pricecodes of practice allow the concrete strength used in design to be varied according to the age of the concrete when it supports the design load. BS 8110 does not permit the use of strength greater than 28 – day value in calculations (3). It is important that the aggregates for making concrete should be clean of all sorts of impurities (4)

Get PriceThe aggregates crushing value test should be performed as per IS code 2386 Part IV. First, fill the sample aggregate with one-third of the cylindrical measure in three layers. Each layer should be tamped 25times freely. After filling the sample aggregate, weigh and record it as W1. Now fill the aggregate in the mould along with the plunger on top
Get Pricemix depends on a great number of va ri a b l e s. (In some areas the natu-rally occurring fine aggregate con-tains organisms which add 4 to 5 p e r cent accidental air to the mix.) In g e n e r al, it is easiest and most pro f - itable to consult the supplier of the ready mixed concre t e . He is familiar with aggre g a t e s , cements and other
