Aggregates, which account for 60 to 75 percent of the total volume of concrete, are divided into two distinct categories - fine and coarse. Fine aggregates generally consist of natural sand or crushed stone with most particles passing through a 3/8-inch (9.5-mm) sieve. Coarse aggregates are any particles greater than 0.19 inch (4.75 mm), but generally range between 3/8 and 1.5 inches (9.5 mm to 37.5 mm) in diameter.
Quanto à dimensão, os agregados classificam-se em:
miúdo: o agregado miúdo é a areia natural quartzosa, ou, se artificial, a resultante do britamento de rochas estáveis, de dimensão máxima característica igual ou inferior a 4,8 mm (NBR 7211 – ABNT).
graúdo: o agregado graúdo é o pedregulho natural, ou a pedra britada proveniente do britamento de rochas estáveis, de dimensão máxima característica superior a 4,8 mm (NBR 7211 – ABNT).
