A full report on the investigations of the effect large coarse aggregate on the trength and elastic properties of mass concrete and of the use of large cylinders in compression tests. This study shows that when testing a given concrete in cylinders of different sizes, the strength decreases as the size of cylinder is increased and that for a given consistency the strength per unit of cement is increased as the maximum size of aggregate is increased. The effect of wet-screening the larger sizes of aggregate and of curing condition.
