Testing of aggregates, Civil Engineering

Testing of Aggregates:

For use in pavement, road aggregates have to be strong, durable and of good shape. A well-graded aggregates adds to the stability of the layer. The following tests are commonly conducted on aggregates to determine their suitability for road construction :

(a) Particle size distribution (gradation)

(b) Presence of deleterious material

(c) Specified gravity and water absorption

(d) Strength

(e) Shape

(f)  Stripping

(g) Soundness test
