Aggregate Properties You Need to Know: Strength and Durability
Dry coarse aggregate samples are rotated in a large steel drum with an abrasive charge of steel balls. A hardened steel shelf lifts the sample and abrasive charge and drops them against the opposite side of the drum as it rotates creating an impactcrushing effect. Grinding and abrasion continue as the contents roll in the drum.
A Presentation on Aggregate.
Coarse aggregate crushing value is the percentage by weight of the crushed material obtained when test aggregates are subjected to a specified load under standardized conditions. Aggregate crushing value is a numerical index of the strength of the aggregate and it is used in construction of roads and pavements.
Quality improvement of recycled fine aggregate using steel
The density was the highest for the aggregates generated under Condition 8 where the weight ratio of aggregate to steel ball was 1:2 the volume ratio of aggregate to washing fluid was 1:0.5 and the abrasion time was 10 min.
Pavement materials: Aggregates
The crushed aggregate is allowed to pass through 2.36 mm IS sieve. And the impact value is measured as percentage of aggregates passing sieve W2 to the total weight of the sample W1 . Aggregate impact value W1 W2 100 Aggregates to be used for wearing course the impact value shouldnt exceed 30 percent. For bituminous
Recycled Concrete Aggregates: A Review International
There is a general trend that RCA has higher values for crushing and L.A. abrasion than NA meaning when the aggregate is contained and crushed or impacted by steel balls in the L.A. abrasion test RCA has more fine particles break off of than NA.
MicroDeval Abrasion of Aggregates
balls. Note 2Placing the aggregate test sample into the container after the steel balls will reduce potential abrasion and wear of the aggregate prior to testing. 5.4 Add 2000 500 mL of tap water at a temperature of 68 9 F to the MicroDeval container with the steel balls and test sample and let stand for a minimum of 1 hr.
2water and 5000 grams of the stainless steel balls. The jar aggregate water and steel balls are revolved at 100 rpm for two hours depending on the particle size. The sample is then washed and ovendried. The loss is the amount of material passing the 1.18 mm sieve expressed as a percent by weight of the original sample. Soundness Aggregates
