Crushed sand in concrete – Effect of particle shape in ...

Studies of sand particle characteristics (shape, voids content, filler particle size distribution) and rheology of concrete (slump-flow, yield stress and plastic viscosity) show that the 0.125/2 mm particle shape and ≤0.125 mm filler properties are the most important factors for concrete workability when the sand grading 0/8 mm is kept constant.

CONCRETE MIX DESIGN USING CRUSHED SAND

 · Hence the crushed sand will have greater water demand than that of natural sand resulting in slightly higher cement consumption. However, if crushed sand is properly graded with adequate fines the mix may have lower water demand when compared to poorly graded natural sand. Besides crushed sand can afford better control on gradation when compared to natural sand.

2013-12-24 · The use of crushed sand as a fine aggregate has gradually increased in concrete industry due to the supplying short- age of natural (river) sand and the growing restrictions to get natural sand for environmental protection. The most crushed sand used in Korea are manufactured from lime- stone rocks while natural sands are weathered and worn out particles of rocks from rivers with the accounting of weathering. Based on the previous provided investiga- tions, the crushed sand has more wide different particle shapes, surface texture and grading of the fines compare to natural sand [1,2]. Furthermore, the quality of the cru- shed sand is strongly depends on the quality of original used rocks while the natural sand mostly has constant qualities. Also it was known that the crushed sand con- crete generally indicated lower workability than that of the natural sand concrete. …
