Limestone sand for concrete

Limestone sand for concrete

LIMESTONE SAND Kuert

Limestone Sand is ideal for a base material for concrete slabs or concrete pavers as it compacts very well. It can also be used for walking paths or pipe bedding. Our Limestone Sand is roughly.25″ down to dust. Category: Decorative Stone, Sand Aggregates

The effects of limestone aggregate on concrete

2010-12-1  The limestone sand used for this research has the density of 2.70 g/cm 3 and the density of mountain sand is 2.65 g/cm 3. According to Tarr and Farny, hard and dense aggregates reduce the shrinkage in concrete. As realized, there exists a small difference of the densities between fine aggregates of limestone and sand in the experiments. 3.5.

2015-1-27  Abstract. Satisfying the ever-growing demand of concrete aggregates poses a problem in many parts of the world due to shortage of natural sand. Moreover, to conserve natural resources and protect civil engineering infrastructures, there is a need to find alternative materials. Crushed stone sand has been identified as a potential substitute material for natural sand in making good quality concrete. The main objective of the present investigation is to determine an adequate mix design method and evaluate engineering properties of crushed limestone sand concrete mixtures in both the fresh and hardened sates. More than thirty concrete mixtures were examined. The results indicate that water demand and cement paste content in crushed sand concrete are generally higher than that used in similar conventional concrete. Good mechanical properties were obtained for concrete using crushed limestone sand as fine aggregates with a superplasticizer. However, a higher than normally used dosage of superplasticizer is required in these concrete
