2012-10-1 The higher value of Shape Index represents more angular shape of aggregate and greater influence it would have on the resulting concrete. Also, since similar sizes of LWA were used in this research, therefore, aggregate size has no effect on Shape Index. The results of Shape Index are presented in Table 6. The YC aggregate possessed the highest ...

Mean dimension is the average size through which the particles pass and the sieve size on which these are retained. For example, mean size of the particles passing through 20 mm sieve and retained on 16 mm sieve is (20+16)/2=18 mm.
