Does the use of larger coarse aggregate in a mix tend to produce concrete of higher strength? A recent report by the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association reached the following conclusions: 1. At a given water ratio, within the range employed in most structural concrete, smaller maximum sizes of aggregate will tend

In PCC, large maximum sizes may not fit between reinforcing bar openings, but they will generally increase PCC strength because the watercement ratio can be lowered. ASTM C 125 defines the maximum aggregate size in one of two ways: Maximum size. The smallest sieve through which 100 percent of the aggregate
