Formula for void ratio

i) Void ratio . The ratio of the volume of voids to the volume of solids is known as a void ratio. It is denoted by (e). The formula for void ratio. i.e, e = Vv/Vs (The void ratio is expressed in decimal.) ii) Porosity (η) The ratio of the volume of voids to the total volume of soil mass is known as porosity. It is denoted by (η) (Neeta).

(PDF) Evaluation of strength, permeability and void

[27] From the literature, it is observed that the combination of 20-10 mm and 10-6 mm aggregates gave better strength at w/c ratio of 0.40. The w/c ratio is determined by the binder drainage test

Voids

The void space between aggregate particles of a compacted mix is referred to as VMA and is used to indicate the available space for bitumen to adequately coat each aggregate particle. The bulk specific gravity is the ratio of the weight of a given volume of aggregate, of

What is bulk density and % of voids of fine

And percentage of voids present in fine aggregate is calculated with the help of specific gravity of fine aggregate and their Loose bulk density by the following formula. % of voids = { (Gs _R)/Gs}100. Where Gs = specific gravity of fine aggregate and their value is

Relationship of void ration to rock size/shap

Jan 05, 2009If someone wants a void ratio of 0.4, say for that top layer, then they are asking for a single sized material, possibly 3 clear rock. On the subject of void ratio, if you have one size spheres, the maximum void ratio you can get is 0.92 with them stacked one on

Void ratio

Void ratio is usually used in parallel with soil porosity (n), which is defined as the ratio of the volume of voids to the total volume of the soil. The posoity and the void ratio are inter-related as follows: e = n /(1-n) and n = e / (1+e) The value of void ratio depends on the consistence and packing of the soil.
