An investigation into the potential use of crushed sandstone aggregates in high performance concrete (HPC) has been carried out. A suitable mix design of HPC has been developed using crushed sandstone coarse and fine aggregates. The engineering properties of both fresh and hardened HPC have been obtained by conducting tests on slump, air content, fresh concrete density, compressive

ADVERTISEMENTS: After reading this article you will learn about the rock aggregates and its suitability. Rocks can be crushed and graded to make aggregate which can be added to a bonding material like cement to form concrete, or bitumen to serve as a road stone. Various civil engineering works need different grades of aggregate. The
