Aggregate plays a key role on the performance of fresh and hardened concrete. Alterations in gradation, maximum size, unit weight, and moisture can all affect the properties of the concrete. Choosing strong and durable good quality aggregate free of clay coatings, absorbed harmful chemicals, when used in correct proportions can produce concrete with consistent strength, workability, finishability, and durability.
