Abstract

Experimental study on the effect of particle size reduction on the strength and water absorption of the concrete has been carried out. For concrete mix particle size reduction done according to reduced scale of 1:5 for five different proportions 1:6:12, 1:5:10, 1:4:8, 1:2:4 and 1:1.5:3 with constant water cement ratio of 0.6. concrete cubes were tested and variation in strength and water absorption due to scaling had been noted.
