Different Types & Sizes of Aggregate for Concrete

2018-8-11  Typically the most common size of aggregate used in construction is 20mm. A larger size, 40mm, is more common in mass concrete. Larger aggregate diameters reduce the quantity of cement and water needed because of its lower Voids. When the aggregate is sieved through 4.75mm sieve, the aggregate retained is called coarse aggregate.

A. 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 w/cm is lower.

What nominal maximum sizes of aggregate are

Because maximum aggregate size can impact concrete properties such as shrinkage, and also the cost of concrete, the largest aggregate size consistent with the requirements of 26.4.2.1 should be permitted.

Crushed aggregate is produced by crushing quarry rock, boulders, cobbles, or large-size gravel. Recycled concrete is a viable source of aggregate and has been satisfactorily used in granular subbases, soil-cement, and in new concrete.
