The Effect of Maximum Coarse Aggregate Size on the

Ghana for concrete production on the compressive strength of concrete. Coarse aggregate samples of maximum sizes of 10mm, 14mm and 20mm were used to produce concrete at constant water/cement ratio of 0.63. In all the experiments, the concreting procedures and materials were kept constant whiles the maximum coarse aggregate sizes were varied.
