grading optimization of aggregates for concrete

Optimization of Aggregate Gradation and its effects on ...

2019-8-2  The optimization of aggregate grading is the most advantage technique for economical and technical reasons. By using of this optimization combined gradation of aggregates mixing cement content is reduced up to 10% to15% of the total volume of the concrete and durability of concrete increased by decreasing the permeability, decreasing drying shrinkage and cracking of the concrete. By increasing the volume of aggregates in total volume of concrete porosity and voids will be decreased it will lead to increasing the structural performance of concrete.
