Abstract:
The question oten arises as to which of two sands to choose for use in concrete. A coarse, well-graded sand may be available at a considerable expense. Perhaps, a finer sand, satisfactory in every respect except its grading, may be obtained at a nominal cost. In the vast majority of cases concrete of equal strength and durability can be made from either sand. The question of which to use is one of economy, and can easily be answered if one is able to calculate the proportions which will give the same strength for both sands.
