For a good concrete mix, aggregates need to be clean, hard, strong particles free of absorbed chemicals or coatings of clay and other fine materials that could cause the deterioration of concrete. Aggregates, which account for 60 to 75 percent of the total volume of concrete, are divided into two distinct categories--fine and coarse.

What is Bacterial Concrete or SelfHealing Concrete
The other advantage of this process is, as the oxygen is consumed by the bacteria to convert calcium into limestone, it helps in the prevention of corrosion of steel due to cracks. This improves the durability of steel-reinforced concrete construction. Preparation of Bacterial Concrete. Self-Healing Concrete is prepared in two ways
Concrete Porosity Destroys Basements
The pores constitute 12 18% or more of the concrete but they are invisible, much smaller than the diameter of human hair. After new concrete is poured, almost half of the water has to evaporate. As this surplus water pushes to the surface, it leaves behind a network of capillary pores in the concrete.
