How Concrete is Made - Portland Cement Association

In its simplest form, concrete is a mixture of paste and aggregates, or rocks. The paste, composed of portland cement and water, coats the surface of the fine (small) and coarse (larger) aggregates. Through a chemical reaction called hydration, the paste hardens and gains strength to form the rock-like mass known as concrete.

Recycled Concrete Aggregate- How to Make It and What

2021-7-12  Concrete aggregates are usually divided into two types: uprocessed concrete aggregate and processed aggregate. The former means that the concete waste experiences only crushing process, thus the RCA concrete may contain impurities. Processed concrete aggregate are usually even and fine-sized aggregate. Applications of processed RCA concrete ...

Cement and Concrete: The Environmental Impact — PSCI

2020-11-3  The Production Process of Concrete: Concrete is constructed using cement mixed with an aggregate-- a grainy blend of materials such as stone and sand. After mixing, the concrete is poured into a mold and left to harden then use in building. The aggregates are sourced from a local body of water and crushed in a natural procedure.

On the Shape Simulation of Aggregate and Cement

2015-10-11  Aggregate occupies at least three-quarters of the volume of concrete, so its impact on concrete’s properties is significant. Both size and shape of aggregate influence workability, mechanical properties, and durability of concrete. On the other hand, the shape of cement particles plays also an important role in the hydration process due to surface dissolution in the hardening process.

Everything You Need to Know About Exposed Aggregate

2020-9-23  The installation process of exposed aggregate concrete is pretty much the same as regular concrete. However, nylon-bristled brushes and water is used after the surface has cured partially to remove a part of the cement. This helps the surface achieve a slightly stubby texture thereby giving it more traction even in wet and humid condition.
