Jul 16, 2013Abstract. Both coarse aggregates and fine aggregates are the main constituents of concrete because they not only give the body to the concrete, it also have a significant effect on the fresh concrete based on aggregate's shape, size, texture, grading and crushing type. Moreover it is proved that aggregate's types has the severe effect on
Even so, the shape of aggregates has an influence on the concrete strength and this is the subject of this paper. It is known that the stress at which cracks develop depends largely on the shape of the coarse aggregate; smooth gravel leads to cracking at lower stresses than
The objective of this paper is to study the shape factor of the aggregates used in Porto Alegre and evaluate its influence on the workability and compressive strength of the concrete. In order to do so, two mix proportioning have been tested and the only variation has been the type of the coarse aggregate.
May 10, 2017The coarse aggregate provide the strength to the concrete while the mixture of cement, sand and water gives you the matrix that helps to bind the coarse aggregate. The concrete fails when the coarse aggregate does not provide enough strength or when the binding is weak.
In general, the rheological properties are modified by effective superplasticisers and a proper ratio of water to binder. The aim of this study is to focus on the important aspect of the impact of shape of the coarse aggregate on fresh concrete mixture properties and the strength of high-performance, self-compacting concrete (HPSCC).
performance and service ability of hot-mix asphalt pavement. The shape of aggregate particle has a significant influence on the performance of the asphalt pavement. Particle shape can be described as cubical, flat, elongated and round. The strength and serviceability requirements of asphalt mixes such as Stability, Flow, Voids in Mineral
such as BIS , ACI , etc. However, these codes are silent about the influence of aggregate properties on the strength of concrete. The assumption that the strength of concrete is governed by the free water cement ratio irrespective of the type of aggregate seems to be on over simplification as size, shape and surface texture of aggregate
To study the performance and behaviour of influence of shape of coarse aggregates on strength of dense bituminous mix and also to determine the different individual properties of materials (aggregates and bitumen). a) To categorised the aggregates in to different shapes.
The properties of concrete were studied when the proportions of 37.5 and 19.5 mm stone in the coarse aggregate were varied. With the cement content of 160 kg/m 3 and the ratio of water/cement (w/c) greater than 0.9, the compressive strength is maximum at 25 percent by weight (w/o) of 37.5 mm stone. Conversely, for the cement content of 350 kg/m 3 and w/c ratios of less than 0.50, maximum
Shape and texture of aggregate is one of the major parameter that influence the properties of fresh and hardened state of concrete .The present methods on mix proportioning of normal concrete have incorporated shape characteristics of aggregate.
The VCA's were calculated in a way similar to the VMA's by replacing percent of aggregate in the mix with percent of coarse aggregate in the calculation. In this study, the behaviour of DBM mixes was studied with aggregates having different shapes and different
The shape of aggregate particle has significant influence on performance of the Bitumen pavement. Particle shape can be described as cubical, blade, disk and rod.The strength serviceability requirements of Bitumen mixes such as stability, flow, voids in mineral aggregate (VMA), voids filled with bitumen (VFB) and air voids are highly depend on
Nov 21, 2016• Coarse aggregate is used to describe particles larger than 4.75 mm, and the term fine aggregate is used for particles smaller than 4.75mm; typically, fine aggregates contain particles in the size range 75 m to 4.75 mm, and coarse aggregates from 4.75 to about 50 mm, except for mass concrete which may contain particles up to 150 mm.
Using the British mix design method, concrete mixes are designed for the following data: the. 28-day target strength of 40 MPa; maximum aggregate size = 10 mm.; sand zone No. 2; medium workability, and the resulting mix proportions for the uncrushed and crushed coarse. aggregates were shown in Table (1).
The Figure 4 illustrates the compressive strength of both types coarse aggregates for all five groups aged of 4 weeks. During this time, compressive strength of A-1 coarse aggregates ranges between 22 MPa to 41.5 MPa and compressive strength of A-2 coarse aggregates ranges between 19.5 MPa to 38.5 MPa.
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,

the influence of shape of aggregate on compressive strength and permeability properties of permeable concrete. In this paper the magnitude of this effect was determined by conducting laboratory trials on mixes of permeable concrete prepared by using proper aggregate differ in
This paper aims at evaluating the influence of coarse aggregate on the mechanical and physical properties of paving blocks made using melted Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE). Melted LDPE are mixed as binder with sand and coarse aggregate to make paving blocks for road pavement purposes.
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.
The Role of Aggregate in Concrete. Using larger coarse aggregate typically lowers the cost of a concrete mix by reducing cement requirements, the most costly ingredient. Less cement (within reasonable limits for durability) will mean less water if the water-cement (w/c) ratio is kept constant.
May 25, 2015The influence of the shape of a lightweight aggregate (a sintered fly-ash) upon the compressive strength of lightweight-aggregate concrete is described. The effective strength of the lightweight aggregate was calculated by extrapolation from the Bache-Christensen model.
The study on the substitution for natural coarse aggregates using waste CRT funnel glass in spherically shapes is still limited. In this paper, the waste CRT glass has been processed to form a spherical CRT glass (GS) and crushed CRT glass (GC), which were used as a coarse aggregate in concrete production. Results indicated that the inclusion of GS and GC has lower the compressive strength
Oct 01, 2016Size Shape. The size and shape of the aggregate particles greatly influence the quantity of cement required in concrete mix and hence ultimately economy of concrete. For the preparation of economical concrete mix on should use largest coarse aggregates feasible for the structure.
Various stress-strain curves and fracture patterns are presented and compared, which indicate that the aggregate size has very small effect on the tensile strength, compressive strength and fracture energy, and the effect of aggregate shape is a little more significant than that of the size.
To obtain high strength concrete, coarse aggregate size is usually held to a maximum size of 19 mm, but additional cement is required for the additional surface area. The fine aggregate can generally contain less material passing 300 um and 150 um sieve because of the higher cement content.
Jul 07, 2015Several researchers have been studying new automated and more precise techniques, such as the aggregate image measurement system (AIMS), to improve the determination of aggregate shape parameters. This paper presents an analysis of aggregates from three different mineralogical sources, investigating the influence of shape properties on HMA design and mechanical properties.
The quality and characteristics of coarse aggregate have a significant influence on the estimation of the strength of concrete [17,18]. According to de Brito et al. [ 19 ], shape regularity of the aggregate is one of the major factors that affect the influence of aggregates on concrete quality.
