increase in aggregate size results in a decrease in the compressive strength of concrete Cook 1989 showed that for compressive strengths in excess of 69 MPa 10 000 psi smaller sized coarse aggregate produces higher strengths for a given water-to-cement ratio In fact it is generally agreed that although larger coarse aggregates can be used...
