The water absorption value for the lightweight aggregate may be difficult to determine with precision; the moisture condition of the aggregate is a critical property affecting workability, rate of loss of workability, water demand, w/c and strength. As a consequence, it may be necessary to ensure aggregates are fully saturated before use in trials and in full-scale production. No-fines Note: See Murdock et al. (1991, pp. 386–8) and Neville (1995, pp. 711–13). g. blocks; kerbs; reconstructed stone Pumping Note: See Masterton and Wilson (1997).

G. surface finish. Not surprisingly, with all the different purposes, methods and aspects that may need to be covered, a wide range of solutions needs to be available, some of which will be purpose-made to suit the requirements of specific sectors of industry or individual companies and for particular applications. For example, a ready-mixed concrete producer needs to have a large number of accurate mix designs ready for immediate use to cater for ‘same-day’ orders. Because of the large amount of test data being accumulated, the producer can utilize this information to develop and update the designs routinely within a control system.

A comprehensive series of graphs is provided enabling the proportion of fine to total aggregate to be estimated, dependent on maximum aggregate size, effective w/c, consistence and fine aggregate grading (per cent passing 600 μm). 24 to a single set of graphs of per cent fine aggregate plotted against effective w/c, for different sizes of fine aggregate. A set of multiplying factors enables the use of a maximum aggregate size other than 20 mm and a target slump other than 50 mm. 24 are used to adjust the per cent fine aggregate estimated from the graphs.
