EFFECT OF COARSE-AGGREGATE CHARACTERITICS ON MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF HIGH-STRENGTH CONCRETE

An experimental study investigated the influence of 4 coarse aggregate types available in Northern California on the compressive strength and elastic behavior of a very high-strength concrete mixture. Using identical materials and similar mix proportions, it was found using diabase and limestone aggregates produced concretes with significantly higher strength and elastic modulus than those using granite and river gravel. The mineralogical differences in the aggregate types are considered to be responsible for this behavior.
