AGGREGATE FOR CONCRETE FROM THE NORTH SEA

TOESLAGMATERIAAL UIT DE NOORDZEE VOOR BETON

Aggregate from the sea is not used much in Holland for the preparation of concrete. It has been found, however, that both sea gravel and sea sand are very suitable concreting materials, and interest in them is growing constantly. It is therefore necessary for the properties of these materials to be made more widely known. With a view to studying the scope for sand and gravel from the North Sea for concrete, the Concrete Research Foundation of the Dutch Cement Industries has gathered literature on the subject and conducted some investigations. Samples of sea sand and gravel were analysed as to their petrographical and physical properties, shell, salt and silt content. Concrete was made with sea and river aggregate of identical grain structure. The effects on the workability of wet concrete and compressive strength values of concrete were determined in products made with sea sand and gravel instead of river sand and gravel.
