The effects of maximum size coarse aggregate on the relationship between accelerated strength and 14-day normally cured strength of normal and superplasticized concrete have been investigated. The results obtained show that differences among maximum size coarse aggregates are greater in normal concrete than in superplasticized concrete in strength-producing properties. Among the various sizes of aggregates investigated, one-half inch maximum size of coarse aggregate exhibited higher strength producing properties. This report includes the test results as well as the procedures for the preparation and testing of concrete specimens. These specimens were prepared and tested at the concrete laboratory at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University.
