classification of aggregates based on size and shape,aggregates are the important constituents of the concrete which give body to the concrete and also reduce shrinkage. aggregates occupy 70 to 80 % of total volume of concrete. so, we can say that one should know definitely about the aggregates in depth to study more about concrete. classification of aggregates as per size and shape.classification of aggregates,lightweight aggregates: as mentioned in the body of this paper, lightweight concrete contains aggregate that is natural or synthetic which weighs less than 1100 kg/m 3.the lightweight is due to the cellular or high internal porous microstructure, which gives this type of aggregate a low bulk specific gravity..

aggregate type (recycled aggregates, siliceous rounded sand and gravel, manufactured sand, and crushed aggregates) was also shown to affect aggregate packing density and rcc properties. fly ash or ground granulated blast furnace slag replacement of cement statistically reduced the early-age rcc strength and likely would delay opening the rcc pavement to traffic.
1. introduction. concrete is a construction material that is extensively used because of its excellent properties such as durability, workability, satisfactory strength, and the easy availability of raw materials (cement, aggregates, and water), which are used to produce it .by definition, concrete is a composite material that consists of a binding medium and aggregate particles and can be
mechanical properties of concrete and steel reinforced concrete (rc, also called rcc for reinforced cement concrete) is a widely used construction material in many parts the world. due to the ready availability of its constituent materials, the strength and economy it provides
construction material. about four tons of concrete are produced per person per year worldwide and about 1.7 tons per person in the united states. the term concrete refers to a mixture of aggregates, usually sand, and either gravel or crushed stone, held together by a binder of cementitious paste. the paste is typically made up of
in the world of construction, concrete like other materials is playing an important role in development. concrete is a composite material which is a mixture of cement, fine aggregate , coarse aggregate and water .the major constituents of which is natural aggregate such as gravel, sand, alternatively, artificial aggregates such manufactured sand furnace slag, fly ash, expanded clay, broken bricks and steel may
in this paper , the effect of using copper slag as a fine aggregate on properties of cement mortars and concrete various mortars & concrete mixtures were prepared with different proportions of copper slag ranging from (0cs+100s)%, (10cs+90s)%, (20cs+80s)%,(30cs+70s)%, (40cs+60s)%, (50cs+50s)%, (60cs+40s)%, (70cs+30s)%, (80cs+20s)%, (90cs+10s)%, (100+0s)%.

the best aggregates to use for strength are crushed stone or crushed gravel. crushed aggregate have irregular, angular particles that tend to interlock when compacted or consolidated. the crushed stone or crushed gravel aggregate make the asphalt or concrete mix somewhat difficult to place. to improve the workability, many mixes
the mechanical properties including the moduli of elasticity and rupture, stress-strain relationship, splitting and direct tensile strengths, shear friction strength, and bond strength were proposed as power functions of the compressive strength and oven-dried density of concrete. the mechanical properties predicted using the proposed equations closely agreed with the test results; the
the mechanical properties of concrete are a key factor for estimating the stiffness and strength of the buildings and members (davraz et al., 2018 ). the determination of the compressive strength of concrete is very important for structures that require strict control of the deformability ( davraz et al., 2018 ).
the shape and texture of aggregate influence the concrete strength considerably. the flexure strength is more affected than the compressive strength. these factors are more significant in the case of high strength concrete. surface texture affects compressive strength by 44% and flexure strength by 26%.
recycled aggregates should be treated as one of the basic properties, which is to be taken into account while designing the mixture of new concrete on the basis of this aggregate. through the influence on the water-cement ratio porosity and consistency, an increased water absorption of recycled aggregate
why use aggregate reduce the cost of the concrete – 1/4 - 1/8 of the cement price reduce thermal cracking – 100 kg of opc produces about 12oc temperature rise reduces shrinkage – 10% reduction in aggregate volume can double shrinkage high aggregate : cement ratio (a/c) desirable a/c mainly influenced by cement content imparts unit weight to concrete
explore in detail the influence of aggregate source, mineralogy, and material properties on concrete performance. eleven aggregates of differing mineralogy were identified and obtained both for bulk characterization and for incorporation into two concrete mixtures. the first concrete
the effect of aggregate properties on concrete concrete is a mixture of cementious material, aggregate, and water. aggregate is commonly considered inert filler, which accounts for 60 to 80 percent of the volume and 70 to 85 percent of the weight of concrete.
coarse aggregates have properties such as size, shape, moisture contents, specific gravity, density etc. which affects concrete strength and durability in many ways. these effect of aggregate properties on concrete are discussed in detail. concrete is a mixture of cementitious material, aggregate and water.
the workability of fresh concrete is thus a composite property. it is difficult to define precisely all the aspects of the workability in a single definition. is 6461 (part-vii)-1973 defines workability as that property of freshly mixed mortar or concrete that determines the ease and homogeneity by which it could be mixed, placed, compacted, and completed .
the blended concrete paste was prepared using the water-binder ratio of 0.5 wt.% of blended cement. the fresh concrete pastes were first cured at 100% relative humidity for 24 h and then cured in water for 28 days. the hardened concrete was thermally treated at 100, 200, 400, 600 and 800°c for 2 h.
concrete is the most common building material with a high thermal mass, and it is of interest to study how thermal mass of buildings influences such factors as their peak power consumption and their thermal comfort. we have studied whether it is possible to improve the thermal properties of concrete for buildings with high thermal mass by using aggregates with high heat capacity and/or

although aggregates are most commonly known to be inert filler in concrete, the effects of aggregate properties on concrete impacts the strength, durability, workability, and economy of concrete. these different properties of aggregate allow designers and contractors the flexibility to meet their design and construction requirements as well as manage costs of the concrete effectively.
the aggregate and the bulk cement past – continue to change with time. in this respect, concrete resembles wood and other living systems. in fact, the word concrete comes from the latin term concretus, which means to grow. strength and some other properties of concrete depend on the cement hydration products, which continue to form for
no segregation of cement paste from aggregates (especially coarse ones) fluidity & compactability known as workability. higher workability concretes are easier to place and handle but obtaining higher workability by increasing water content decreases strength and durability. properties of concrete. following are the important properties of fresh concrete
