Manufactured Sand vs. Natural Sand Concrete, Sand,

The choice of fine aggregate, whether it is manufactured or natural sand, can greatly impact the fresh concrete properties of a mixture such as the workability, pumpability, and finishability. Natural sand has an ideal shape for use as fine aggregate in concrete. The natural sand particles are well-rounded and are usually nearly spherical.

How concrete is made material, manufacture, making, how

Concrete made with Portland cement is considered superior to that made with natural cement because it is stronger, more durable, and of more consistent quality. According to the American Society of Testing of Materials (ASTM), Portland cement is made by mixing calcareous (consisting mostly of calcium carbonate) material such as limestone with silica-, alumina-, and iron oxide-containing materials.

How to make stronger, "greener" cement MIT News

Sep 25, 2014 · The findings come from the most detailed molecular analysis yet of the complex structure of concrete, which is a mixture of sand, gravel, water, and cement. Cement is made by cooking calcium-rich material, usually limestone, with silica-rich material — typically clay — at temperatures of 1,500 degrees Celsius, yielding a hard mass called "clinker."

What is the exact difference between manufactured sand

Today there is a tremendous demand for natural sand and government doesn't allow illegal extraction of sand from rivers so, to eradicate the natural sand and use replacement sand, artificial sand was found and is being used largely. Artificial sand affects workability and makes the concrete stiff. This can be improved by use of fly ash.
