• Use of sea sand as fine aggregate in concrete making

    Concrete is a mixture of cement, coarse aggregates, fine aggregates or sand and water. The approximate ratios of these components are as below: Based on the ratios and the anticipated cement consumption in the country, the expected requirement of sand will be about 500550Mt in the next few years or so. Traditionally, river sand has been the main source of supply but the restrictions now ...

    This experiment is carried out to find and check the gradation of the fine aggregate sand. The concrete consists of three basic solid materials, one is the sand whose fineness is checked by experiment no 1, the other two materials are the coarse aggregate that is the crush while the third is the fine aggregate that is the sand. As there are different types of sand, so we will have to ...
