# packing of concrete aggregates

### Characterization of the packing of aggregate in concrete ...

2009-10-1 Aggregate is packed into a mould to form the structure of concrete, while cement particles are “compacted” in water between aggregate grains. The packing phenomenon for concrete is therefore significant on a meso-level as well as on a micro-level. Particle packing details will directly affect the characteristics of concrete.

More### What Aggregate Packing is Optimal?

2017-8-5 Aggregate packing is one of several factors to consider in selecting aggregates. Aggregate gradings finer than maximum packing density are often preferred. The packing density, along with shape, is useful in determining amount of paste required. Consider the combined solid particle size distribution.

1997-9-1 Keywords: aggregates; high-performance concrete; mix price; natural resources; optimization; packing; Date: 9/1/1997. Abstract: Concrete mix designs include a number of sub-designs of e.g. the aggregate mix. The aggregates are usually selected and combined according to simple mix design rules, which requires each of the aggregates to be graded.

2010-8-19 In the present work, a computer model was developed to simulate random packing of aggregates. For the sake of simplicity, two dimensional situation was considered and all of the aggregates in concrete were assumed as ellipse. 2D elliptical models of random packing were firstly demonstrated in periodic boundary condition. In addition, the ellipse random packing model was
