Aggregates for Concrete bination of gravels or crushed stone with particles predominantly larger than 5 mm (0.2 in.) and generally between 9.5 mm and 37.5 mm (3⁄ 8 in. and 11⁄ 2 in.). Some natural aggregate deposits, called pitrun gravel, consist of gravel and sand that can be readily used in concrete after minimal processing. Natural
aggregate affect the drying shrinkage of concrete, which is attributed to pronounced moisture movement inside the aggregate. Here, a relation between physical and chemical characteristics of limestone and the shrinkage in limestone concrete is studied. Results of limestone are compared with those of common aggregates. 2.
