In the majority of concrete works aggregate sizes of 20 mm or smaller are used To ensure good coarse aggregate compaction and higher concrete density it is recommended to mix 20 mm and 10 mm coarse aggregates in the ratio of 7030 or 6040 It is recommended to stack different aggregate sizes to use them efficiently

Coarse aggregates are classified into two main groups i singlesize aggregate and ii graded aggregate Singlesize aggregate is based on a nominal size specification It contains about 85 to 100 percent of the material which passes through that specified size of the sieve and zero to 25 of which is retained in the next lower sieve
