The small stones that are used in your concrete are called as Coarse Aggregates, i.e. gravel. If these are not of the proper type, the strength of your house may be at risk

Step No.1

The aggregates with more density and less sparkles

make a strong bond with the cement.

Step No.2

Take note that,

there should not be more dust and dirt in the

aggregates; it makes the grip of the cement loose.

Step No.3

See that, after soaking the aggregates in the water

for 24 hours, they do not absorb more than 2% of

the water; aggregates that absorb more water are

not suitable for use in concrete.

Step No.4

The quantity of slim and long stones in the aggregates

should be less than 35%.

Step No.5

For the RCC footing mostly the aggregates of

20mm size are used, but for more strength you

can mix the aggregates of 20mm and 10mm in

the ratio of 60:40.

Step No.6

Store different sized aggregates at different place,

so that it becomes easy at the time of using them.
