Aggregates Portland Cement Association

Gravels constitute the majority of coarse aggregate used in concrete with crushed stone making up most of the remainder. Natural gravel and sand are usually dug or dredged from a pit, river, lake, or seabed. Crushed aggregate is produced by crushing quarry rock, boulders, cobbles, or large-size gravel.

How Are Aggregates Used in Concrete? A.L. Blair

May 24, 2018· In concrete, aggregates are the granular substances that hold a concrete mix together in its solid form. Aggregates vary in size and shape, ranging from fine sand to coarse gravel and crushed stone. When combined with cement and water, aggregates create a bond that holds concrete mixes together.

Recycled Concrete Aggregates: Its Properties & Uses

Recycled concrete aggregate as such, holds original aggregate with hydrated cement paste. Hence first, that demolished concrete is cleaned from dirt and other loose particles. After that, it is broken into smaller pieces to produce aggregate known as recycled concrete aggregate. Recycled concrete aggregates are available in size of 20mm to 50mm.

Recycled Concrete Aggregate an overview ScienceDirect

Recycled concrete aggregate (RCA) is the designation used in BS 8500-2 for recycled aggregate principally comprising crushed concrete. Designations of recycled aggregate other than RCA are of lower quality and may contain significant quantities of masonry which would preclude or limit their use in structural concrete.

Effects of Aggregate Properties on Concrete Size, Grading

Hence, it is required that optimum size of aggregates is used so that concrete can easily be transported, handeled, compacted and finished with ease. 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.
