Sieve Analysis of Coarse Aggregate – 5 Steps

Sieve Analysis of Coarse Aggregate – 5 Steps

Aggregate sieve analysis test is a method of determining the particle size distribution of aggregate samples in concrete technology practice. It is used to classify into different groups based on their grain size and shape. Sieve analysis of coarse aggregate is a crucial process in determining the particle size distribution and quality of aggregates used…

Properties of Aggregates and their Usefulness in Construction

Properties of Aggregates and their Usefulness in Construction

Aggregates are most commonly used engineering material in construction and have many applications as they have several desirable characteristics. Aggregates are the granular materials that are mixed with cement and water to form concrete. They occupy generally 60 to 75% of the concrete volume and 70 to 85% by mass.   Aggregates can be natural such…

Aggregates in Concrete Technology

Aggregates in Concrete Technology

Aggregates are one of the main components of concrete, along with cement and water. They are granular materials that occupy most of the volume of concrete and provide strength and stability to the mixture. Aggregates can be natural, such as sand, gravel, and crushed stone, or artificial, such as slag, fly ash, and recycled concrete….

Classification of Aggregates

Classification of Aggregates

Classification of aggregates plays a pivotal role in ensuring the quality and performance of construction materials. One of the most important building materials in construction and in civil engineering projects is aggregates as they form the body of the concrete when mixed with mortar or cement paste. In civil engineering, aggregate plays a crucial role…
