ABSORPTION OF CONCRETE AGGREGATES. THE SIGNIFICANCE OF TESTING TECHNIQUES

INCORRECT TESTING TECHNIQUES AND INACCURATE ALLOWANCES FOR THE ABSORPTION OF CNCRETE AGGREGATES HAVE LED TO MISLEADING OBSERVATIONS CONCERNING THE STRENGTH OF CONCRETE. IT IS SHOWN THAT CONTROVERSIES ABOUT THE EFFECT ON THE STRENGTH OF CONCRETE OF INCREASING THE CEMENT CONTENT AT A GIVEN WATER/CEMENT RATIO, CAN BE RESOLVED BY CONSIDERING THE DIFFERENCES IN THE TESTING TECHNIQUES WHICH WERE USED IN THE VARIOUS INVESTIGATIONS. THIS ARTICLE IS COMPLEMENTARY TO A TECHNICAL PAPER JUST PUBLISHED BY THE CONCRETE SOCIETY IN WHICH A METHOD FOR DETERMINING THE ABSORPTION OF AGGREGATES IS PROPOSED THAT IS BOTH MORE ACCURATE AND MORE CONVENIENT THAN THE EXISTING STANDARD TESTS. /RRL(A)/
