Causes Of Crack In A Concrete Building

 · Shrinkage can become critical in high strength concrete because of low water/cement ratio and also because of use of Mineral Admixtures. 3. Quality and Type Of Aggregate: The quality of aggregate used in concrete determines the overall strength of concrete. If the aggregate is of poor quality it will not make a proper bond with cement. 4.

Different Types & Sizes of Aggregate for Concrete ...

 · Typically the most common size of aggregate used in construction is 20mm. A larger size, 40mm, is more common in mass concrete. Larger aggregate diameters reduce the quantity of cement and water needed because of its lower Voids. When the aggregate is sieved through 4.75mm sieve, the aggregate retained is called coarse aggregate.
