Effect Of Maximum Size Of Aggregate On Concrete Strength

Effect Of Maximum Size Of Aggregate On Concrete Strength

The strength of normal or high-strength concrete is affected by the maximum size of a well-graded coarse aggregate. Concrete mixes containing larger coarse aggregate particles need less mixing water than those containing smaller coarse aggregates In other words small aggregate particles have more surface area than a large aggregate particle.

    COARSE AGGREGATES IN HIGH STRENGTH CONCRETE Given the critical role that the interfacial transition plays in high-strength concrete the mechanical properties of coarse aggregate will have a more pronounced effect than they would in conventional-strength concrete. Important parameters of coarse aggregate are shape texture grading cleanliness and nominal maximum size. In

    3.2.1 Maximum size of coarse aggregate In general the effect of Variation in maximum size of coarse aggregate on concrete properties is well known. The increase in maximum size results in lower compressive strength in rich mixes and higher compressive strength in leaner mixes using rounded coarse aggregates gravels 1.

    In a study to assess the effect of size of aggregate in higher grade concrete using high volume fly ash Bhikshma and Florence 2013 found that aggregate sizes influence its strength and that maximum size of coarse aggregate of 12.5 mm gave the highest compressive strength splitting tensile strength and flexural strength.

    Effect Of Maximum Aggregate Size On The Bond Strength

    The bond between reinforcements and concrete is the only mechanism that transfers the tensile stresses from concrete to reinforcements. Several factors including chemical adhesion roughness and reinforcement interface and bar bearing affect the bond strength of reinforcements with concrete. This work was carried out considering another varying factor which is maximum aggregate size.

    The Effect Of Maximum Size Of Aggregate On Concrete Strength

    As the nominal maximum size of the aggregate is increased the amount of water needed for the same workability is reduced. At the same cementitious material content strength is therefore greater because the wcm is lower. But in the high-strength range over 40 MPa 5800 psi higher compressive strengths are usually obtained at a given wcm .

    The concrete mix that was made with medium size PKS only produced lower compressive strength of about 11 compared to the mix that contained all sizes of PKS. However the exclusion of medium size particles didnt cause any segregation in the gap-graded aggregate concrete. The strength of PKS and bond governed the failure of PKSC.

    1. A decrease of the water requirement and content of cement and an increase of the density of concrete due to a decrease of the sand content and corresponding increase of the stony component are a positive aspect of increasing the size of the aggregate. 2.

    Dec 01 2000 Q. Ive 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 dont 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
