Aggregate is classified as two different types, coarse and fine. Coarse aggregate is usually greater than 4.75 mm retained on a No. 4 sieve, while fine aggregate is less than 4.75 mm passing the No. 4 sieve. The compressive aggregate strength is an important factor in the selection of aggregate.
Concrete consists of cement, water, sand and coarse aggregate as a major ingredients. The coarse aggregate provide the strength to the concrete while the mixture of cement, sand and water gives you the matrix that helps to bind the coarse aggregat
The source rock has sustained significant geothermal alteration, which together with weathering results in an aggregate that exhibits high wetdry strength variation and dimensional instability i
Concrete and aggregate used in your construction projects has to meet strict regulations and quality standards. As these standards are often compulsory, concrete and aggregate testing by an independent thirdparty is necessary to help assure compliance.
INFLUENCE OF AGGREGATE PROPERTIES ON CONCRETE. Aggregates influence the properties of concretemortar such as water requirement, cohesiveness and workability of the concrete in plastic stage, while they influence strength, density, durability, permeability, surface finish and colour in hardened stage.
Strength of coarse aggregates is difficult to measure. While we talk about the strength of coarse aggregates it refers to the crushing strength of the aggregate itself. However, the required information on strength of coarse aggregates can be obtained from indirect tests crushing strength of prepared rock samples, crushed value of bulk

The aggregate crushing value test indicates the strength of aggregate which is the most essential property of coarse aggregate. After that, remove the basket and aggregates from water and take the weight of basket suspended in water as A2. Dry those aggregates with a dry cloth and then take the weight of these dry aggregates, and denote it
2 The workability and the strength of both portland cement concrete and asphalt pavements The best aggregates to use for strength are crushed stone or crushed gravel. Crushed aggregate have irregular, angular particles that tend to interlock when compacted or consolidated.
If the surface is rough but porous, maximum bond strength develops. In porous surface aggregates, the bond strength increases due to setting of cement paste in the pores. 4. Specific Gravity. The ratio of weight of oven dried aggregates maintained for 24 hours at a temperature of 100 to 110 0 C, to the weight of equal volume of water displaced
Aggregate crushing value W2 x 100 W1W W2 Weight of fraction passing through the appropriate sieve. W1W Weight of surface dry sample. The mean of two result to nearest whole number is the aggregate crushing value. The aggregate crushing value of the given sample Aggregate Crushing Values for Roads and Pavement Construction.
An aggregate is considered unsound when the volume changes in aggregate induced by weather e.g., alternate cycles of wetting and drying, or freezing and thawing ,result in the deterioration of concrete. IS limit Fine Aggregate 10 weight loss of five cycles with Na2SO4 Fine Aggregate 15 weight loss of five cycles with MgSO4
Aggregate strength depends on its parent rock composition, texture and structure. The modulus of elasticity is related to strength of the aggregate. It is very important for a number of reasons E values of aggregate very different from paste will cause a mismatch at the interface, and this region can thus get prone to cracking.
The first, oven dry, means exactly what it sounds like. The aggregates, which contain pore spaces of their own, have those pore space filled only with air. The second, saturated surface dry condition, is defined as the condition in which all of the pore space within the aggregate is full of water, but no water is present on the surface.
To conduct crushing strength test we need compression testing machine, cylindrical measure, plunger and Isa sieves. First sieve the sample aggregate, aggregate passing 12.5mm sieve and retaining 10mm sieve is oven dries at 100110 o C for 34 hrs. The cylinder is filled with aggregate in 3 layers, 25 strokes of tampering for each later.
Curing process of concrete hydrating amp gaining strength dependent on moisture and temp.when hydration stops, strength gaining stopscuring does not equal dryingdrying of concrete is not usually good occurs when it does not have enough moisture to hydrate. drying causes shrinkage
Dryrodded unit weight Dryrodded unit weight is the mass weight of one cubic meter foot of dry coarse aggregate that is compacted, by rodding in three equal layers, in a standard container. For any one aggregate the dryrodded unit weight varies with the size and gradation.
The dry ovendry and SSD conditions are not typically found for aggregate in storage, but are used as the basis for moisture content measurements and associated calculations. The properties of fresh and hardened concrete are affected by the quantity of mixing water in the concrete mixture.
Fine aggregate should fall within gradation limits provided in ASTM C 33, Section 6. If there is a deficiency in a locally available fine aggregate, concrete may benefit from the addition of air entrainment, additional cement, or a supplemental cementitious material SCM to address these shortcomings.
The flexural strength of concrete reduces and water demand and the tendency of segregation increases in elongated coarse aggregate particles. Strength Of Coarse Aggregates By crushing strength of rocks, aggregate crushing value, aggregate impact value and abrasion value the material strength of these aggregate is indicated. Aggregates Absorption
