fineness modulus of aggregate it is an indication of average size of particle in the aggregate. fm = sum of all cumulative percentage retained/100 if fm=2-3.5, it is fine if fm=5-5.5, it is coarse significance of grading of aggregates if the aggregates are of uniform
if in a concrete mix the fineness modulus of coarse aggregate is 7.6., the fineness modulus of fine aggregate is 2.8 and the economic value of the fineness modulus of combined aggregate is 6.4 then the proportion of fine aggregate in coarse aggregate is concept:
aggregate is classified into two general sizes: coarse grained and fine grained. coarse aggregate is rock retained on a 3/8-inch (4 u.s. sieve). fine aggregates pass the 3/8-inch sieve and are retained on a 200 u.s. sieve. 6. fine aggregate consists of natural sand, manufactured sand, or a combination.
the effect of aggregate properties on concrete concrete is a mixture of cementious material, aggregate, and water. aggregate is commonly considered inert filler, which accounts for 60 to 80 percent of the volume and 70 to 85 percent of the weight of concrete.
the importance of fineness modulus. in 1925, duff abrams introduced the concept of fineness modulus (fm) for estimating the proportions of fine and course aggregates in concrete mixtures. the premise: 'aggregate of the same fineness modulus will require the same quantity of water to produce a mix of the same consistnecy and give a concrete of
quality of aggregates 1. the aggregate should be hard, clean and well graded; the fineness modulus of artificial sand should be in the range of 2.4-2.8, and that of natural sand should be in the range of 2.2-3.0. 2. the moisture content of aggregate should be stable.
fine aggregate gradation fineness modulus (fm) should be between 2.3 and 3.1 fm is empirical determined by dividing the sum of percent retained on a standard series of sieves by 100 (no. 4, 8, 16, 30, 50, 100) coarser fine aggregate has a higher fm
fineness modulus of grading of aggregate. fineness modulus is an empirical factor computed from the sieve analysis. it is defined as the sum of the cumulative percentages retained on the sieves of the standard series ranging from 80mm to 150microns and dividing the sum by 100. when all particles in a
fineness modulus is only a numerical index of fineness that gives some idea about the mean size of the articles in the entire body of concrete. determination of fineness modulus is considered as a method of standardization of grading of aggregate i.e the main object of finding fineness modulus is to grade the given aggregate for the most economical mix and workability with minimum quantity of
aggregates 1040 kg/ m, and natural sand with fineness modulus 3.23. mix (b); ordinary portland cement 450 kg/m was used with 30 recycled concrete aggregate 1040 kg/m by adding different levels of super plasticizer (0,3, 5, 8) litters per cubic meter, natural
coarse aggregate means the aggregate which is retained on 4.75mm sieve when it is sieved through 4.75mm. to find fineness modulus of coarse aggregate we need sieve sizes of 80mm, 40mm, 20mm, 10mm, 4.75mm, 2.36mm, 1.18mm, 0.6mm, 0.3mm and 0.15mm. fineness modulus is the number at which the average size of particle is known when we counted from
produced locally in nigeria and of grade 42.5 n. coarse river sand with fineness modulus of 3.0 with water cement ratio of 0.4 was used to produce the said concrete using mix ratio 1:1.5:3 (cement:sand:granite). the coarse aggregate
aggregate is an aggregation of non-metallic minerals obtained in particulate form and can be processed and used for civil and highway engineering construction. the aggregates passing 4.75 mm tyler sieve and retained on .075 mm sieve are classified as fine aggregate.
fineness modulus of sand. fineness modulus of aggregate is an index number which gives an idea about the finance of aggregate and is an approximate proportion of the average size of particle in the aggregate. it is found out by sieve analysis test of standard size in the laboratory. the thumb rule is lower the fineness modulus
fineness modulus = 2.7, surface moisture = 3 40 aci mix design mix design procedure step 1 -required material information step 8 -estimation of fine aggregate content water: 280 lb/ 62.4 lb/ft3 = 4
once the fineness modulus of the fine aggregate is known, it can be used to select proportions of coarse aggregate. in its standard practice 211.1-91 selecting proportions for normal, heavyweight, and mass concrete , the american concrete institute (aci) includes table a1.5.3.6 giving the volumes of coarse aggregates for various fineness moduli of fine aggregates.

how to calculate fineness modulus. procure to determine fineness modulus. sieve the aggregate using the appropriate sieves (80 mm, 40 mm, 20 mm, 10 mm, 4.75 mm, 2.36 mm, 1.18 mm, 600 micron, 300 micron & 150 micron) note down the weight of aggregate retained on each sieve. calculate the cumulative weight of aggregate retained on each sieve.
fineness modulus. a measure of the fineness of an aggregate; a factor obtained by adding the total percentages of an aggregate sample retained on each of the following sieves and dividing the sum by 100: no. 100 (150 m), no. 50 (300 m), no. 30 (600 m), no. 16 (1.18 mm), no. 8 (2.36 mm), no. 4 (4.75 mm), 3/8 inch (9.5 mm), 3/4
what percentage of the fine aggregate of fineness modulus of fine aggregate 2.5 to the coarse aggregate of fineness modulus 4.1 should be used for obtaining a c solution concept: (r=frac{p_2-p}{p-p_1}times 100) where, r = proportion of fine aggregate to the
what is fineness modulus of aggregate? fineness modulus is an empirical factor obtained by adding the cumulative percentages of aggregate retained on each of the standard sieves ranging from 80 mm to 150 micron and dividing this sum by 100. why to determine fineness modulus? fineness modulus is
fineness modulus (fm) is a numerical index used to determine the extent of fineness of aggregates. sieve analysis of aggregates - grading aggregates & fineness modulus in the grading process or sieve analysis, sample of aggregate is shaken through a series of wire-cloth sieves with square openings, that is nested one over the other in the decreasing order of sieve size.
