The river sand, which is a non-pozzolanic material, was ground into 3 different particle sizes. Portland cement type I was replaced by the ground river sands at 10wt%wt% of binder to cast mortar. Compressive strengths of mortar were investigated and the filler effect of different fine particles of sand on the compressive strength of mortar was evaluated.

With leaner mortars-that is, those with a smaller proportion of cement-the greater density of the dirty mortars would doubtless be more ap-parent.

Adjusting the strength of concrete based on the ratio of sand to cement is easy to do. The closer you bring the ratio to an even one-to-one ratio of sand to cement, the stronger you will make the concrete. On the other hand, if you push the ratio in the other direction you will get a product that has slightly less strength.

Effect of sand particle size on the strength and density of normal Portland cement mortars by Eric Montgomery Wilson Download PDF EPUB FB2

The influence of sand particle size on the strength of cement-based mortars is considered on the assumption that the mortar is a sand-cement composite material.

It is shown that, for the particular class of sand gradings investigated, the absolute size of the particles has no effect on the tensile strength of the mortar and that failure. After modification, Toufar model was used to calculate the packing degrees of sand mixtures with different particle sizes.

For four gradations of sands, the weight ratios of different types of sands with different size ranges, which achieve maximum packing degrees, have been obtained using the modified Toufar model. A strength test of reactive powder concretes (RPCs) with the four gradations Cited by: 3.

This study aims to investigate the effects of some physical properties of sands (e.g., size and shape) on the hydraulic conductivity (k). The paper presents the results of an extensive series of experimental investigations performed using sands with different sizes and particle shapes.

Three different particle size ranges ( mm, Zhang et al. [3], Celik [4] and Osbaeck et al. [5] analyzed the effects of particle size distribution and surface area upon Portland cement strength.

Tsivilis et al. [6] and Garcia-Cassilas et al. This research investigated the effects of sand grain size and sand-to-cement ratio on the properties of the interfacial transition zone (ITZ) between mortars and high-strength deformed steel fibers. Three grades of sands and two matrix compositions were used, and single fiber tests were performed to study the interfacial bond by: The effects of four sand contents on the compressive, flexural and splitting-tensile strength of cement mortars were evaluated.

Moreover, we experimentally investigated the pore structure of cement mortar brought about by changing the sand content and water/cement ratio. The changes in the pore structure were quantified by measuring the porosity and pore size distribution obtained by using.

The flexural strength of normal­ strength concrete containing the basalt or limestone used in this study is not affected by aggregate type, and is limited by the matrix strength and the strength of the interfacial transition zone. The flexural strength of normal and high-strength concrete is not affected by aggregate size.

The variation of density with FM of sand is shown in Figure 3 for different cases. From this figure, it is evident that there is slight increase in density i.e.

Nine mix proportions by the amount of different sizes of cement were classified based on the accumulated remains denoted as R at 10 m (R10), 20 m (R20), 40 m (R40), and 80 m (R80) using an Alpine air jet sieve shaker, as shown in Table 5, and the fineness.

The effect of shape and texture [1,3,4], grading [5], strength and stiffness [6], maximum size [7], relative density (specific gravity), soundness and toughness [8] on either fresh concrete or. However, a comparison of bending strength gains at an early age (of 2 and 7 days) and 28 days shows that bending strength gains for mortars with PBV become greater than those of mortars with PBB at 28 days.

PBV and PBB being finer than sand, its partial substitution for both kinds of glass powder of which grain size was spread, can improve the. Both finer sand and nanoparticles have a filler effect on mechanical performance of cement-based composite. In this paper, the influence of sand size in mechanical performance of cement-based composites, containing polyvinyl alcohol fiber (PVA) and nano-SiO2 (NS), was investigated.

The studied mechanical performance, included compressive, flexural, tensile strength, and fracture toughness. For example, in Bui et al. published a paper in which they burnt Vietnam rice husk in a drum incinerator for RHA production and researched the particle-size effect on the strength of RHA blended gap-graded Portland cement concrete.

For this reason, this study investigates the strength activity index of mortars containing residual RHA that. For ASTM Cthe cement mortar strength with % of insoluble residue has to be not lower than MPa at 3 days and MPa at 7 days for Portland cement type I.

Sample MH70 gives compressive strength of mortar at 3, 7 and 28 days equal toand MPa, respectively. This means that the insoluble residue up to % in.

The strength gain ratio up to an age of 7 days was insignificantly affected by the natural sand content (\(R_{s} \)) for replacing lightweight fine aggregates; however, the long-term strength gain ratio was higher when compared with the conventional values of – as determined from normal.

Blending of RHA with the fine cement PC40 provides less efficient particle packing due to the narrower particle size range as compared to blending with the coarser PC30 cement.

Hence, only a moderate contribution is given by the filler effect to early-age strength. Specifically, the OPC used in this study was Type-1 Portland cement ( kg/m 3, fineness: m 2 /kg), the BFS served as a mineral admixture (density: kg/m 3, fineness: m 2 /kg), and the fine aggregate was International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standard sand (density: kg/m 3, SiO 2: 99%, mm passage amount: 0.
