Abstract: Around 65% of a concrete’s volume is occupied by aggregate. Based on this percentage, the properties of the aggregate should have a large impact on the properties of the concrete. The roles of aggregate in concrete are steadily being examined through extensive experimental work. In this contribution, we discuss the roles of aggregate in concrete, which are mainly based on the volumetric stability of the aggregate, based on our experimental data with the aid of references to illustrate how aggregates control the long-term properties of concrete.
