Proper gradation of coarse aggregates is one of the most important factors in producing workable concrete. Proper gradation ensures that a sample of aggregates contains all standard fractions of aggregate in required proportion such that the sample contains minimum voids. A sample of the well graded aggregate containing minimum voids will

Get PriceA sieve analysis (or gradation test) is a practice or procedure used (commonly used in civil engineering) to assess the particle size distribution (also called gradation) of a granular material by allowing the material to pass through a series of sieves of progressively smaller mesh size and weighing the amount of material that is stopped by each sieve as a fraction of the whole mass.

Get Price2014-06-25· The most efficient way to achieve workable of concrete is by adopting a good gradation of aggregate. Also aggregate comprises 85% of the volume of concrete. So we can definitely say that, most of the requirement of concrete in its plastic state is affected by aggregate properties and, “gradation of aggregate” is one of them.
