Effects of sand/aggregate ratio on strength, durability

Compressive strength is provided mainly by coarse aggregate, the proportion of which decreases inversely to the S/A ratio. Thus, replacing coarse aggregate with an equal volume of fine aggregate led to a significant reduction in compressive strength under absolute volume conditions (1 m 3).
