Abstract: This paper report an experimental study carried out to investigate to influence of addition of different size aggregate and w/c ratio on the mechanical properties of controlled concrete. The standard size cube and cylinder specimens are prepared and cured for period of 7 and 28 days. At the end of each curing period the compressive strength of each specimen are determined. The result indicate that the cement content in mix are increasing, the ratio of cylinder to cube strength is in case of 10mm aggregate than the 20mm aggregate are also increasing. The results also show there is no unique relationship between the strength of cube and strength of cylinder.
Keywords: Aggregate Size, Compressive Strength, Cube And Cylinder Specimen, W/C Ratio.
