Maximum size of aggregate is often restricted by clear cover and minimum distance between the reinforcement bars Maximum size of coarse aggregate should be 5 mm less than clear cover or minimum distance between the reinforcement bars, so that the aggregates can pass through the reinforcement in congested areas, to produce dense and homogenous concrete...
Typically, coarse aggregate sizes are larger than 475 mm (5 mm in British code), while fine aggregates form the portion below 475 mm A maximum size up to 40 mm is used for coarse aggregate in most structural applications, while for mass concreting purposes such as dams, sizes ,...

SIEVE ANALYSIS AND FINENESS MODULUS Sampling Since the reason for sampling aggregates is to determine the gradation (particle , as the maximum particle size in the aggregate increases, the size of the sample must increase to maintain accuracy in testing How To Take a Sample , Coarse Aggregate: All the materials retained on and above the No ....
Generally the size of coarse aggregate used is 10-125 mm If we use the proportional mix of different sizes small to large (>45 mm to 20/25 mm), this make the concrete structure compact by align themselves in voids depending upon their size and compact mass will be formed with increased strength...
The following conditions decide the maximum size of coarse aggregate to be used in concrete It should not be more than one fourth of the minimum thickness of the member provided that the concrete can be placed without difficulty so as to aurround all reinforcement thoroughly and fill the corner of the form...
