### Influence of aggregate size on the mechanical and ...

In this study, the influence of the aggregate size on the mechanical and transport properties of concrete and concrete-equivalent mortars is investigated. A concrete mixture was proportioned having a water–cement ratio of 0.45 and a cement content of 450 kg/m3 with a maximum aggregate size of 22.4 mm. Then, keeping the total aggregate surface area constant, three mixtures were proportioned ...

### Effect of coarse aggregate size on strength and ...

The properties of concrete were studied when the proportions of 37.5 and 19.5 mm stone in the coarse aggregate were varied. With the cement content of 160 kg/m 3 and the ratio of water/cement (w/c) greater than 0.9, the compressive strength is maximum at 25 percent by weight (w/o) of 37.5 mm stone.
