5 aggregate specifications and requirements,coarse aggregates are divided into classes based on quality requirements as noted on the classification of aggregates table. class ap is the highest class and is assigned to aggregates which meet the requirements for all indot uses. some indot contracts specify type ap aggregates for use in on-grade application of portland cement concrete.classification of aggregates: grain size, density, shape,classification of aggregates based on: grain size. the size of fine aggregates is defined as 4.75mm or smaller. that is, aggregates which can be passed through a number 4 sieve, with a mesh size of 4.75mm. fine aggregates include things such as sand, silt and clay. crushed stone and crushed gravel might also fall under this category..

grading of aggregates grading of aggregate is the particle size distribution of a sample of aggregates on the basis of sieve analysis and sedimentation analysis. the grading of aggregate is plotted in a semi-logarithmic graph to get the particle size distribution curve which is in form of ‘s’.
chapter 14 -aggregates page 77 • calculate cumulative percentage passing for the blended aggregate according the formula: a.a i + b.b i + c.c i si = (a +b +c) where si is cumulative percentage passing on i- sieve for the mixture ai, b i, c i are cumulative percentage passing on i- sieve for the individual aggregates
with regard to aggregate b, because there is 51 percent pass ing no. 30, the percentage of aggregate b required to arrive at the desi red 24 percent passing this sieve is b = 24/51 = 0.47; the percent of aggregate a in the blend will be 1 - 0.47 = 0. 53. the general equation for combining two aggregates
grading of aggregates. grading of aggregates is determining the average grain size of the aggregates before they are used in construction. this is applied to both coarse and fine aggregates.the aggregate sample is sieved through a set of sieves and weights retained

road aggregate 101: nominal maximum and/or minimum sized stone in mix the nominal size distribution of an aggregate specification is defined as the range of sieve openings through which 100% of the aggregate can pass. road aggregate 101: gradation or distribution of different sized stones open graded aggregate vs. well graded aggregate.
c4 - sieve analysis (aggregate grading) for fine and coarse aggregate. introduction aggregate is one of the basic constituents of concrete. aggregates are natural or artificial mineral particles that act as a filler, usually constituting about 75 per cent of the volume of the concrete.
the results may also be plotted on a suitable grading sheet-such as form a1/3. 5 notes 5.1 the washing procedure for samples containing a high percentage of minus 0,075 mm material may be facilitated by dry-sieving the sample prior.to washing. 5.2 if the minus 0,075 mm fraction is already washed out, e.g. in the case of aggregate tor
provide aggregate that is within ±0.20 of the average fineness modulus. provide a single point grading for the combined aggregates along with a plus/minus tolerance for each sieve. use plus/minus tolerances to perform quality control checks and by the engineer to perform aggregate grading verification testing.

the grading of aggregates is a major factor in the workability of a concrete mix. grading affects characteristics of fresh concrete and hardened state: strength, shrinkage and durability. ensure that the grading is kept constant during the concreting work; otherwise variable workability results.
to describe an aggregate by its maximum and minimum size is not sufficient. it has to be graded from its minimum to maximum size. is-383 recommends the following grading limit for fine aggregates. grading limits for fine aggregates sieve size percentage of passing for grading zone-i grading zone-ii grading zone-iii grading zone-iv 10 mm 100 […]
coarse aggregate is the one retained on 4.75 mm is sieve. when the aggregate contains sizes differently in suitable proportions, it is called graded aggregate. the workability of concrete is also improved with well graded aggregate. single size aggregates make the concrete harsh and does not work well with trowel and between the cables, strands
important attribute of the aggregate s. large aggregates are economically advantageous in portland cement and asphalt concrete, as they have less surface areaand, therefore, require less binder. however, large aggregate mixes, whether asphalt orportland cement
