  • Effect of Fineness of Sand on the Cost and Properties of

    Fineness Modulus of Sand affects Compressive and flexural strength of Concrete. Sand, with higher FM, results in higher strength of concrete. It is evident by cost benefit ratio that overall concrete mix is becoming economical if we use sand with higher FM. The results indicate that with the increase in FM, workability gets affected considerably. The cement demand also gets modified. Some of the

    Another issue associated with river sand is that of obtaining required grading with a fineness modulus (FM) of 2.4 to 3.1. Generally FM of 2.2 to 2.6, 2.6 to 2.9 and 2.9 to 3.2 indicates that the sand is fine, medium and coarse confirming to grading zones ranging from IV to I (IS383).

  • Effect of Sand Fines and Water/Cement Ratio on Concrete

    amount of sand fines in concrete results in poor workability. This eventually leads to the addition of water to the concrete mix before or even during the unloading process to improve workability [12]. Meanwhile, research have also shown that an increase in water/cement ratio result to a decrease in the compressive strength of concrete [13,14]. Additionally, the increase in sand

  • The Effect of Fineness Modulus of Fine Aggregate (sand)

    The fineness modulus of sand differs for each sand quarry. The purpose of this research is to analyze the effect of fineness modulus of fine aggregate (sand) on concrete compressive strength. The sand quarry taken in this study are from three sand quarry in Aceh Tamiang District. They are Johar quarry, Tanjung Karang quarry, and Alur Bamban quarry. The specimens of concrete used in the form of

  • Fineness Modulus Method of Concrete Mix Design

    Fineness Modulus Method of Concrete Mix Design The index number, which describes the relative sizes of coarse and fine aggregates, is called as fineness modulus (FM). Fineness modulus is determined separately by sieving coarse and fine aggregates through the following set of sieve. IS sieves for coarse aggregates are 80 mm, 40 mm, 20 mm, []

  • The Importance of Fineness Modulus| Concrete

    01.01.1994· Fine aggregate affects many concrete properties, including workability and finishability. Usually, a lower FM results in more paste, making concrete easier to finish. For the high cement contents used in the production of high-strength concrete, coarse sand with an FM around 3.0 produces concrete with the best workability and highest compressive strength.

  • Effects of cement fineness on cement properties

    Effects of cement fineness on cement properties. Q. How does the fineness to which the clinker is ground affect the properties of the cement? A. Increasing the fineness increases the rate of hydration of cement, which increases the rate of gain in strength and also the rate at which heat is liberated as in Type III compared with Type I cement (ASTM C150).
