The number of sieves is five for the coarse aggregates and ten for allinaggregates it is only six in the case of fine aggregates sieve size for grading of aggregates coarse aggregates 80 mm 40 mm 20 mm 10 mm is nos 480 fine aggregates is no 480 240 120 60 30 and 15
For a good concrete mix aggregates need to be clean hard strong particles free of absorbed chemicals or coatings of clay and other fine materials that could cause the deterioration of concrete aggregates which account for 60 to 75 percent of the total volume of concrete are divided into two distinct categoriesfine and coarse
Aggregates which comprise 75 percent of concrete by volume improve the formation and flow of cement paste and enhance the structural performance of concrete fine grade comprises particles up to 20 of an inch five millimeters in size while coarse grade includes particles from 20 to 79 of
Light weight aggregate made up of low density artificial and natural material to produce a very light weight concrete mix thats used to create light weight concrete blocks fire proof covering and also some sound proofing applications a good example of such an aggregate is vermiculite

One of the best concrete mix ratios is 1 part cement 3 parts sand and 3 parts aggregate this will produce approximately a 3000 psi concrete mix the strength of this mix ratio is good for most concrete slabs footings steps and foundation walls
Aggregate concrete provides a beautiful and functional surface for driveways sidewalks and decks because of the exposed aggregate the surface wont stain as easily as concrete another benefit to beauty and stain resistance is safety aggregate concretes surface offers more traction than concretes typical smooth finish
Concrete mix ratio of 133 on mixing 1 part cement 3 parts sand with 3 parts aggregate produces concrete with a compressive strength of 3000 psi on mixing water with the three ingredients a paste is formed that binds them together till the concrete mix gets hardened the strength concrete is inversely proportional to the watercement ratio
Sign a twoaggregate normalweight block mix with an industryrecommended fm of 370 the mixer can handle a total dry aggregate batch weight of 4500 pounds step 1 aggregate fms as indicated in the table below our coarse aggregate gravel has an fm of 482 and our fine aggregate sand has an fm of 275 step 2 aggregate proportioning
Fine aggregate grain sizes range from 015mm up to 5mm eg they easily pass through a sieve of 475mm but collect on a sieve of 015mm a good example of a fine aggregate is sand more can be found about the different types of sand here course aggregate grain sizes range from 5mm up to around 95mm eg they are trapped by a 5mm sieve a good example of a course aggregate is gravel
Jun 05 2020 cement sand coarse aggregate and water with a suitable proportion of water all of these components are mixed according to batching or concrete grade table maybe m10 m20 m25 m30 etc mostly m25 and m30 always used in construction industries for multistory buildings
In common practice normal sand as fine grade and lightweight coarse grade aggregate of less than 19 mm are used to make a concrete called sanded lightweight concrete density of lightweight concrete mix lightweight concrete mix design is generally doe by trial mixes
Apr 12 2018 smaller gravel particles equals a fine grade of concrete use the fine aggregate for concrete slabs or other smooth surfaces a coarse aggregate means using larger pieces of gravel coarse concrete is helpful for sturdier projects concrete with a coarse aggregate doesnt produce a smooth look or feel but is stronger than a finer grade

General use concrete the most common concrete mix for general construction use is a 3 2 1 mix this mix would have 3 parts gravel usually 12 or 34 clear gravel plus 2 parts masonry sand plus 1 part portland cement
Aggregate will have a huge influence on the overall compressive strength of the concrete because if there is either too little or too much water then the overall strength of the concrete will be too weak there are formulas to help gain a better understanding of the complex chemical process in concrete hydration process 2caosio2 xh2o 2caosio2xh2o ideal ratios water to cement by weight 065 1
The minimum grade of concrete for plain cement concrete pcc is m15 the minimum grade of concrete for reinforced cement concrete rcc is m20 concrete grade and mix ratio table as per is 4562000 the grades less than m20 should not be used in rcc works
Jul 31 2018 aci 302 recommends material with 10 to 30 fines passing the no 100 sieve with no clay silt or organic materials manufactured aggregate works wellcrushed recycled concrete aggregate can also work well

We all know that concrete is primarily portland cement aggregate and water and in general its best to keep it simple since more ingredients can make it more difficult to control water the single most important thing to start with is the watercement ratio wc nearly 100 years ago duff abrams discovered the direct relationship between
Jan 28 2020 he notes that water content is often higher in lightweight concrete than in standardweight concrete and that sufficient aggregate moisture is critical in successfully pumping lightweight concrete the critical factor is to make sure the lightweight aggregate is saturated surfacedry as it goes in so that it will not absorb water from the mix
