On Aggregate Grading

Concrete international aggregates had average void ratios between 23.8% and 26.7%, with an overall average of 25.5%. NWG aggregates had average void ratios between 21.6% and 23.3% with an overall average of 22.5%. So, for this aggregate source, WG aggregates had about 3% higher void content than NWG aggregates.
