What nominal maximum sizes of aggregate are recommended?
Because maximum aggregate size can impact concrete properties such as shrinkage, and also the cost of concrete, the largest aggregate size consistent with the requirements of 26.4.2.1 should be permitted. With the w/cm fixed, the larger the nominal maximum size of aggregates, the lower the cement content for a given consistency. Or, stated ...

Maximum Aggregate Size  CivilWeb Spreadsheets
BS EN 138771 limits the maximum aggregate size in concrete to one third of the spacing between reinforcing bars. This is a more onerous restriction than in US standards which specify a maximum aggregate size of ¾ of the minimum spacing. The designer can make a judgement if the maximum aggregate size is likely to cause issues with closely ...

The effect of maximum size of aggregate on concrete strength
A. As the nominal maximum size of the aggregate is increased, the amount of water needed for the same workability is reduced. At the same cementitious material content, strength is therefore greater because the w/cm is lower. But in the highstrength range, over 40 MPa (5800 psi), higher compressive strengths are usually obtained at a given w ...

3. The advantage of small aggregate in the waterratio strength relationship may or may not be sufficient to offset the effects of its higher mixing water demand. It appears that optimum maximum size, so far as strength is concerned, will vary for different aggregates, different cement factors, different test ages and probably other conditions. 4.

Aggregate in Concrete  The Concrete Network
Aggregates are generally thought of as inert filler within a concrete mix. But a closer look reveals the major role and influence aggregate plays in the properties of both fresh and hardened concrete. Changes in gradation, maximum size, unit weight, and moisture content can all alter the character and performance of your concrete mix.
