Abstract: 
Packing of particles, either of the aggregate or of the (blended) binder is becoming an issue of raising importance, due to the development of high performance concrete and to growing popularity of using mineral admixtures to replace part of the Portland cement. The paper discusses continuous grading and gap grading, and size segregation effects on packing efficiency.
