• ACI 2111: Maximum Aggregate Size For Concrete Mix

    In this post I shall discuss maximum aggregate size that can be used in design Large maximum sizes of aggregates produce less voids than smaller siz Hence, concretes with the larger-sized aggregates require less mortar per unit volume of concrete, and of.

  • What is the size of coarse aggregate used in concrete?

    When the size of aggregate is greater than 475 mm ( say 5 mm) it is called coarse aggregate Graded aggregates are used for better particle packing The larger the size of aggregate lesser the cement required for same strength up to certain grade.

Correct me if I'm wrong but if we keep the same w/c ratio for both mixes (compare apples to apples) we now have to add additional water and cement to our mix for the smaller aggregate because of additional surface area associated with a smaller aggregate size.
