American Concrete Institure allows sand which hasfineness modulus different from mixed design ±O.l, if its more, the engineer would make new concrete mixed design. This research used sand form Khon Kaen which is mixed with sand from Nakomrachasima is more coarse. Mixed sand had fineness modulus 1.7, 19, 2.0, 2.2 and 2.4. Concrete mixed designed for compressive strength 18 N/mm2 and 28 N/mm2 and used gravel from Ubolrachatanee and Udonthanee instead of stone. The result showed more compressive… CONTINUE READING
