Concrete is the hard, strong construction material we all know. This consists of sand, gravel, pebbles, broken stone, or slag in a mortar or cement matrix. Cement is the powder that is mixed with water to bind it all together. The final properties of the concrete body are determined by a number of properties including the quantity and quality of the aggregate, the amount of cement in the mixture, and the fineness of the cement itself. While chemical composition of the cement, proportions of the different components, and conditions of the mixing and setting may have a significant effect on final performance, this note will address the effects of particle size in manufacturing and in the final product.
