P 208 SPECIFICATION P–208 AGGREGATE BASE COURSE DESCRIPTION 208–1.1 This Work consists of a base course composed of hard durable particles or fragments of crushed coarse aggregate blended with either binder and fine aggregate or filler Construct it on a prepared underlying course in accordance with these Specifications and in conformance


The ASTM C 33 Standard Specification for Concrete Aggregates grading requirements for coarse and fine aggregates are shown on Tables 3 and 4 respectively There are several reasons for specifying grading limits and maximum aggregate size most importantly workability and cost.

Fineness Modulus of Fine Aggregate

Fine aggregate sand grading affects consistence and finishability Fineness Modulus FM is an empirical calculation used to support the optimisation of a concrete mix design It is used to determine degree of uniformity of the grading This can create a relationship between grading and consistence and/or the amount of cement or water

Sizes and Grading of Aggregates for Road Maintenance and

With fine aggregate we use sieve sizes such as No 6 No 8 No 16 No 30 No 50 and No 200 to graded coarse and fine aggregate The importance of ordering and using the correct size of aggregates to fit the job and of

Soil classification

Soil classification is the separation of soil into classes or groups each having similar characteristics and potentially similar behaviour A classification for engineering purposes should be based mainly on mechanical properties e.g permeability stiffness strength.

Aggregate Crushing Value Test Determine Aggregate

17 05 2019  Concept and significance of the Aggregate crushing value test The aggregate crushing value test ` gives a relative measure of the resistance of an aggregate to crushing under a gradually applied compressive load Aggregate crushing value is defined as the percentage by weight of the crushed or finer material obtained when the test aggregates are subjected to a specified load

Classification of Aggregate used in Construction Purpose

09 03 2018  1.Fine Aggregate The fine aggregate used for making mortar is silt and clay.The particle size of silt and clay is less than 4.75mm.Highly organic clay is also included in this classification.they are dark in colour fibrous and bad odour The other classification of fine aggregate is based on the compressibility that is highly compressible


5 GRADING AND TYPE OF AGGREGATE The grading of aggregate influences the mix proportions for a specified workability and water cement ratio Coarser the grading leaner will be mix which can be used Very lean mix is not desirable since it does not contain


NOTE The use of 2 by mass of the total aggregate of hydrated lime or cement filler reduces the risk of water stripping the binder from some aggregates in particular flint gravel This might also be achieved by the addition of adhesion agents to the bitumen or at the mixing stage B.2.4.2 Fine aggregate B. Type of fine aggregate

Aggregates Meaning and Classification

Fine aggregate having fineness modulus less than 1.0 should not be used Higher the F.M harsher the mix lower F.M gives an uneconomical mix Generally the fineness modulus for fine aggregates varies from 2.0 to 3.5 and for coarse aggregate between the 5.5 and 8.0 and for all in aggregate

Grades of Concrete Different Grades of Concrete M10 M15

Note General ratio of fine aggregate to coarse aggregate is 1 2 The ratio can be adjusted between 1 1.5 to 1 2.5 based on the grading of fine aggregate and coarse aggregate size Choose water from the above table For M20 Grade Concrete Sand is confirmed to Zone II average grading .


increase in aggregate size results in a decrease in the compressive strength of concrete Cook 1989 showed that for compressive strengths in excess of 69 MPa 10 000 psi smaller sized coarse aggregate produces higher strengths for a given water to cement ratio In fact it is generally agreed that although larger coarse aggregates can be used
