Uses of Concrete Sand:
This is important for using the right type, and better quality of aggregates should be optimized. Two types of aggregates fine and coarse aggregates. Generally compulsion of concrete volume up to 60% to 75%.
The first type of Fine aggregates generally consists of natural sand (Fig. 5-1) or crushed stone in little pieces up to a size of 5 mm (0.2 in.).
Requirements of as well as water and cement most probably an Aggregate proportions, shrinkage, pump ability, durability, porosity and workability of concrete.Concrete from Variations in grading majorly affects the uniformity of the concrete step to step.
Workability of Sand:
In generally produce the most satisfactory results of aggregates that is tough to give a smooth grading curve aggregates but do not deficiency or excess of any size.
Mixing of Concrete Sand:
Mixing with cement and aggregate for concrete work Uses of concrete and have included, filling of palms, pavers, and horse arenas.The best concrete sands gets from California Sand. It also called fine aggregate.
After that mixing of cement and water, then that fills the air spaces between the coarse aggregate. Sands can also used in pipe sand or walkways as a levelling medium and pools, patios or though uses in the creation of cement.
