  • Gradation Test | Sieve Analysis of Fine and Coarse Aggregates

    Jun 02, 2012 · Importance: This experiment is carried out to find and check the gradation of the fine aggregate i.e. sand. The concrete consists of three basic solid materials, one is the sand whose fineness is checked by experiment no 1, the other two materials are the coarse aggregate that is the crush while the third is the fine aggregate that is the sand.. As there are different types of sand, so we will ...
