sandstones, coarse aggregates, concrete etc.
Previous studies shown the importance of aggregate packing and grading to enhance the performance of concrete. Changes in aggregate proportions and their influence on concrete properties such as strength and modulus of elasticity was studied by several researchers. Similarly, when sandstone used in concrete, compressive strength of resulting concrete might vary and it is being accepted as the most important mechanical property of structural concrete.
Thus the objective of the present work is
“To find out the possible use of sandstones as coarse aggregates obtained from Mahakoshal region, in cement concrete and also find out some of the properties of such concrete in fresh and hardened states.”
