Aggregate Crushing Test:

In which the layer of aggregates in a cylindrical measure is subjected to a compressive load of 40 T, and the per cent fines generated are determined, known as the Aggregate Crushing Value. A value of 10 signifies a strong aggregate and values of above 35 signify a weak aggregate. The apparatus is shown in Figure.
