This test is primarily used in the classification of material against specified grading envelopes. Also known as sieve analysis, this test is done to determine if the aggregates are fit for purpose.
The ALD is the arithmetic mean of all the measured least dimensions of the aggregate particles measured. The least dimension is the smallest perpendicular distance between two parallel plates through which the particle will pass.
The flakiness index of coarse aggregate is a measurement of the flatness of an aggregate which affects, among other things, the performance of road surfacing aggregates and the workability of concrete.
This test reveals the relative proportions of fine dust or clay-like materials in soils and fine aggregates. The test is used to assess the quality of fine aggregate used in concrete and asphalt.
The Aggregate Crushing Value and 10% Fines Aggregate Crushing tests determine particle strength of aggregate for concrete, surfacing (chips) and asphalt, as well as crushed stone base.
PSV simulates the resistance of aggregate to the polishing action of vehicle tyres under conditions similar to those occurring on a road surface.
This test is used to determine the relative compaction of a crushed stone base and mix design procedures of concrete and asphalt where the volumetric and water absorption properties of aggregates are required.
This test is used to determine the apparent density of crushed stone base. The results are used to determine compliance of the density with applicable specifications.
