  Importance Of Bulking Of Sand
 

The phenomena of bulking of sand is discussed in the previous chapter. The important facts in connection with the bulking of sand are as follows:

(1) When moisture content is increased by adding more water, the sand particles pack near each other and the amount of bulking of sand is decreased. Thus the dry sand and the sand completely flooded with water have practically the same volume.

(2) The coarse aggregate is little affected by the moisture content.

(3) One of the reasons of adopting proportioning by weight is the bulking of sand as proportioning by weight avoids the difficulty due to the bulking of sand.

(4) The bulking of sand should be taken into account when volumetric proportioning of the aggregates is adopted. Otherwise, less quantity of concrete per bag of cement will be produced, which naturally will increase the cost of concrete. Also, there will be less quantity of line aggregate in the concrete mix which may make the concrete difficult to place.
