The same value of fineness modulus may therefore be obtained from several different particle size distributions In general however a smaller value indicates a finer aggregate Fine aggregates range from a FM of 2 00 to 4 00 and coarse aggregates smaller than 38 1 mm range from 6 50 to 8 00

The fineness modulus can be considered as a weighted average size of a sieve on which the material is retained keeping in mind that the sieves are counted from the finest For instance a fineness modulus of 4 00 can be interpreted to mean the the fourth sieve No 16 in the US series is the average size

1 The aggregate should be hard clean and well graded the fineness modulus of artificial sand should be in the range of 2 4-2 8 and that of natural sand should be in the range of 2 2-3 0 2 The moisture content of aggregate should be stable The moisture content of artificial sand should not exceed 6

Fineness modulus estimates the proportions of aggregate in construction materials Aggregate is inert granular material such as sand gravel or crushed stone used to form concrete The fineness modulus number affects the workability and finish of concrete Before calculating fineness modulus lab technicians pour aggregate onto sieves Fineness

4 2 Based on Fineness Modulus The fineness modulus is also considered as the indication of quality of aggregate According to IS recommendations the aggregate should posses the F M to the range of 2 6 to 3 2 Greater than 3 2 should be rejected The Classification of sand based on Fineness modulus is as follows Fine Sand 2 2 to 2 6

Sep 01 2014· Fineness Modulus of Sand Why to Determine Fineness Modulus Fineness modulus is generally used to get an idea of how coarse or fine the aggregate is More fineness modulus value indicates that the aggregate is coarser and small value of fineness modulus indicates that the aggregate is finer Fineness modulus of different type of sand is as per

Fineness of fine aggregate is related to term fineness modulus most commonly sand Fineness modulus is a measure to define fineness of aggregate precisely it defines coarseness or fineness of aggregate to be used in concrete This can be defined as value that is derived by following expression

Fineness modulus of sand fine aggregate is an index number which represents the mean size of the particles in sand It is calculated by performing sieve analysis with standard sieves The cumulative percentage retained on each sieve is added and subtracted by 100 gives the value of fineness
