Aggregate

The tests for Aggregate Crushing Value (ACV) and FACT (10% Fines Aggregate Crushing Test) measure the crushing strength of broken rock. These results do not necessarily relate to the flexural or compressive strength of concrete made with that aggregate, but are a useful index of overall quality. Normal values for ACV range from 14 to 30%, and for

AN INVESTIGATION INTO QUALITY OF AGGREGATE IN ROAD ...

And this coarse aggregate should be tested and analyzed before using in any constructional purposes to ensure durability of engineering products. CHAPTER ONE. INTRODUCTION. The basic thing in investigation into the quality of aggregate in road construction is that aggregates serves as reinforcement to add strength to the overall composite material.

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. +7. 33.

Aggregates are defined as:

Aggregates produced using such method are usually flaky and donot satisfy the grading requirements set by standard recommendations. Nevertheless, such aggregates are used for construction in areas where aggregates crushing machine(s) is not available, and quality control is not a criteria in the execution of the work.

Aggregates for Concrete

Key points. • ''Aggregate'' is a term for any particulate material. It includes gravel, crushed stone, sand, slag, recycled concrete and geosynthetic aggregates. Aggregate may be natural, manufactured or recycled. • Aggregates make up some 60 -80% of the concrete mix. They provide compressive strength and bulk to concrete.

Aggregates for Concrete

Crushed stone is produced by crushing quarry rock, boul-ders, cobbles, or large-size gravel. Crushed air-cooled blast-furnace slag is also used as fine or coarse aggregate. The aggregates are usually washed and graded at the pit or plant. Some variation in the type, quality, cleanli-ness, grading, moisture content, and other properties is expected.

Aggregate Crushing Value

 · Aggregate Crushing value depends on the shape of agg also. Angular aggregates have a lower ACV, than Irregular or rounded aggregates.If we cut a core out of the same agg (Say in the quarry) and test for compressive strength, will give a higher MPa value. It can be considered as a concrete cylinder or UCS tested in lab. So it is hard to corelate
