#### Grading of Aggregates Aggregate Grading The

In grading of aggregates, the voids in the mixed aggregate would be minimum when the sand is just sufficient to fill the voids in the coarse aggregate. Voids in the coarse aggregate are filled in by sand and voids in the sand are filled in by cement. Mix that occupies the least volume is the densest and will produce the best results.

#### A Detailed Guide on Grading of Aggregates. civilseek

Grading of aggregates is a method of determining the average grain size of the aggregates before they are used in construction. The aggregate sample is sieved through a set of sieves and weights retained on each sieve in percentage terms are summed up. When the coarse aggregates are packed to make the concrete, the voids formed within
