Investigations on physical properties and bulking of natural sand and artificial sand

Author(s):
SK Jain
Abstract:
The specific gravity of natural sand was found to be 2.50 and that of artificial sand was 2.65. The average loose bulk density of natural sand was found to be 1.640 g/cc and that of artificial sand was found to be 1.780 g/cc. The average compacted bulk density of natural sand was found to be 1.715 g/cc and that of artificial sand was found to be 1.856 g/cc. The average void ratio of natural sand and artificial sand was found to be 0.344 and 0.288 respectively. Bulking of artificial sand was higher than natural sand for same percentage of water added. At 8 per cent water content in natural sand and artificial sand, maximum bulking was occurred.
