Abstract:
Introduction.-Before attempting a discussion of the gradation and character of aggregates as a factor in the workability of concrete, i t is necessary that we have clearly in mind what we mean by the term workability. Concrete is thought of as being workable when it may be conveyed with the greatest ease and with the least amount of segregation and when it may be distributed within the forms and brought to the desired finish with the least amount of effort.
