AASHTO #57 Stone Specs AASHTO #57 Stone Specs AASHTO #57 stone as defined by quarries, state agencies, etc is an open-graded, self-compacting aggregate blend of size 5, 6, & 7 stone This material cannot be 'compacted' in a true sense, but can be properly oriented with compaction equipment This is particularly important when using #57 stone under Flexi-Pave surfac...
Gradation and Size Gradation Charts The charts below show typical gradations of various products based on required specifications from agencies and organizations such as state DOTs, AASHTO, etc Anti-Skid Coarse Aggregat Fine Aggregat Micro-Surfacing Rip Rap...
Aggregates for Concrete The important characteristics of aggregates for concrete are listed in Table 5-2 and most are discussed in the following section: Grading Grading is the particle-size distribution of an aggregate as determined by a sieve analysis (ASTM C 136 or AASHTO 80 Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures EB001 Table 5-1 Rock and Mineral Constituents ....
Sieve analysis A sieve analysis (or gradation test) is a practice or procedure used (commonly used in civil engineering) to assess the particle size distribution (also called gradation) of a granular material by allowing the material to pass through a series of sieves of progressively smaller mesh size and weighing the amount of material that is stopped by each sieve as a fraction of the whole mass...

Aggregate Testing Equipment Aggregate Angularity & Elongation equipment determines the shape characteristics fine and coarse aggregates to evaluate their suitability for asphalt and concrete mixtur Calipers quickly determine percentages of flat and elongated particles in coarse aggregate fractions of 3/8in (95mm) or larger...
Reclaimed Concrete Material Gradation: Recycled concrete material should be crushed and screened to produce aggregate that satisfies the AASHTO M6 (5) and M80 (6) gradation requirements for PCC With appropriate adjustments, a plant can produce any desired gradation Crushed fine aggregates (minus 475 mm (No4 sieve)) are generally not used or are blended with natural sand...
Aggregate in Concrete 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 Broad coarse-aggregate gradation ranges are listed in Table 2 of ASTM C 33...
Effect of Continuous (Well Effect of Continuous (Well-Graded) Combined Aggregate Grading on Concrete Performance Phase A: Aggregate Voids Content 2 Introduction It has been generally accepted that if the aggregate volumes are so chosen that the packing density of the combined aggregates is maximum then the amount of cementitious paste volume required for a...
