—Grading Of Aggregates for Concrete Aggregate comprises about 85 % volume of mass concrete— —Concrete contains aggregate upto a maximum size of 150 mm ——Way particles of aggregate fit together in the mix, as influenced by the gradation, shape, and surface texture— —Grading effects workability and finishing characteristic of fresh concrete, consequently  the properties of… Read More »

General Considerations for Workability of Concrete

General Considerations for Workability of Concrete Workability Workability represents consistency & cohesiveness of concrete General Considerations for Workability Water content The higher the water content, the higher will be the fluidity of concrete, which is one of the important factors affecting workability. a/c Ratio The higher the aggregate/cement ratio, the leaner is the concrete In… Read More »
