Discussion :: Concrete Technology - Section 3 (Q.No.13)

13.

Pick up the incorrect statement from the following:

 [A]. In properly graded aggregates, bulk density is more [B]. In single size aggregates, bulk density is least [C]. In single size aggregates, bulk density is maximum [D]. None of these.

Explanation:

No answer description available for this question.

 Garry said: (Jan 13, 2018) How it is possible that a single size aggregate having maximum bulk density if we use all aggregates circular then there will be voids in between them which can't be filled by another aggregate so its density will be less but if I use a well-graded aggregate that will also feel those unfilled voids and bulk density will become maximum.

 Apurva said: (May 25, 2018) Simply, Single size aggregate can be termed as Fine aggregate, and Fine sand bulks more, Hence in single size aggregates, bulk density is maximum.

 Shubham said: (Jul 21, 2018) Properly Graded size aggregate would occurs maximum bulk density. And also we use this for obtaining dense concrete.

 Abubakar said: (Feb 22, 2020) @Garry. It asks which one is incorrect. So single size aggregate bulk density is maximum. So this is incorrect. So option C is the correct answer.
