Bulk Density and Void Percentage Test for Aggregates

Bulk density of aggregate is the mass or weight of the aggregate that is required to fill a container of a specified unit volume. The percentage of space or voids between the individual particles and in a unit ...

Determination of Specific Gravity of Fine Aggregates

Specific gravity of fine aggregate (sand)  is the ratio of the weight of given volume of aggregates to the weight of equal volume of water.The specific gravity of sands is considered to be around 2.65. Apparatus for Specific Gravity TestA ...

Aggregate Crushing Value Test – Determine Aggregate Crushing Strength

Aggregate crushing value test on coarse aggregates gives a relative measure of the resistance of an aggregate crushing under gradually applied compressive load.Coarse aggregate crushing value is the percentage by weight of the crushed material obtained when test aggregates are subjected ...

Splitting Tensile Strength of Cylindrical Concrete specimen

The tensile strength of concrete is one of the basic and important properties which greatly affect the extent and size of cracking in structures.Moreover, the concrete is very weak in tension due to its brittle nature. Hence. it is not expected to ...

Tests on Hardened Concrete for Quality Check of Construction

Hardened concrete gains strength with time and testing these hardened concrete for quality check is important for structures. Different types of tests are available to check different properties of hardened concrete which are discussed. Properties of Hardened ConcreteEarly volume change ...
