aggregate. In the laboratory test, conventional fine aggregate was replaced at replacement level. A total of 18 cubes were cast, cured and tested. The strength development of the concrete mixes containing egg shell aggregates was compared to that of conventional concrete with sand as fine aggregate.
Properties of aggregates affect the durability and performance of concrete, so fine aggregate is an essential component of concrete. Natural sand is mainly excavated from river beds and always contain a high percentage of inorganic materials, Chlorides, sulfates, Silt and Clay that adversely affect the strength, the durability of concrete and ...
Conventional concrete aggregate consists of sand (fine aggregate) and various sizes and shapes of gravel or stones (coarse aggregate). However, there is a growing interest in substituting alternative aggregate materials, largely as a potential use for recycled materials. While there is significant research on many different materials for aggregate substitutes such as granulated coal …

Quality of Fine Aggregate for Concrete and Asphalt c. A. ROGERS, M. L. BAILEY, AND B. PRICE The sulfate soundness test has been used for many years for evaluating the physical suitability of fine aggregate. This test suf fers from poor within-laboratory and multilaboratory precision; it is a time-consuming and expensive test.
to make high-strength concrete, it is easier to do so with coarse aggregates below 12.5 mm (Y, in.) (ACI 363-95). There has not been much research on the effects of coarse aggregate content
identify the ideal replacement material for fine aggregate in the concrete preparation . Worldwide consumption of concrete is estimated to be about 11.5 billion tons per year and by year 2050 it is expected to reach to 18 billion tons of concrete per year .
aggregates cannot be overemphasized. The fine and coarse aggregates generally occupy 60% to 75% of the concrete volume (70% to 85% by mass) and strongly influ-ence the concrete's freshly mixed and hardened proper-ties, mixture proportions, and economy. Fine aggregates (Fig. 5-1) generally consist of natural sand or crushed
This paper deals with the possibility of using fresh concrete waste as recycled aggregates in concrete. An experimental program based on two variables (proportion of fine aggregates replacement and proportion of coarse aggregates replacement) was implemented. The proportions of replacement were 0%, 50%, and by mass of aggregates.
Concrete is a mixture of cement, fine aggregate and coarse aggregate, which is mainly derived from natural resources. Increasing population, expanding urbanization, climbing way of life due to technological innovations has demanded a huge amount of natural resources in the construction industry, which has resulted in scarcity of resources.
Materials and Methods 2.1. Characterization of Materials A commercial siliceous sand (Natural aggregate: NA) was used as a reference, and a fine recycled aggregate from structural concrete waste (RCA) was used as an alternative.
In order to reduce both these problems, an eco-friendly solution using sea sand and crushed sand as alternative fine aggregate in geopolymer concrete (GPC) is proposed. In this study, an M40 grade GPC with fly ash and Ground Granulated Blast Furnace Slag as binder and a combination of hydroxide and silicates of sodium is used as reaction liquid.
4.2 Fine Aggregate The sieve analysis for fine aggregate expressed a fineness modulus of 2.36. Specific gravity of fine aggregate is 2.59. 4.3 Coarse Aggregate The coarse aggregate used in concrete mix is of nominal size of 20 mm aggregates with aspecific gravity of 2.6. 4.4 Fly ash
improve the grading and reduce fine powder content. This comparison study gives an insight into the various characteristics of fine aggregates playing role in making good pumpable concrete along with other important hardened concrete properties. 2 P. ROBLEM . D. EFINITION. Excessive instream sand-and-gravel mining causes the degradation of rivers.
alternative for conventional fine aggregate. In this study the compressive strength characteristics of mortar and concrete made with partial replacement of fine aggregate using induction furnace slag was considered. For the experimental investigation, mixes were prepared with fine aggregate replacement using 20 percent, 30 percent,
aggregate is crushed stone, in the same way the test is performed using Brick khoa as a coarse aggregate. This study ensures the stone powder or as an appropriate alternative of sand (fine aggregate) in concrete manufacturing as a building materials. As a low cost coarse aggregate Brick chip is considered to ensure the

More performance tests are also used to test aggregates in concrete. A typical consensus specification for fine and coarse aggregate for concrete is ASTM C 33. Synthetic aggregates may be either byproducts of an industrial process, in the case of blast-furnace slag, or products of processes developed to manufacture aggregates with special
industrial waste materials in concrete reimburses the lack of natural resources, solving the disposal problem of waste. There are a number of industrial wastes used as fully or partial replacement of coarse aggregate or fine aggregate. Ferrochrome slag (FS) is a solid waste residue that is obtained
