Aggregate used in road construction, should be strong enough to resist crushing under traffic wheel loads. If the aggregates are weak the stability of the pavement structure is likely to be adversely affected. The strength of coarse aggregates is assessed by aggregate crushing test.
Aggregate crushing value test on coarse aggregates gives a relative measure of the resistance of an aggregate crushing under gradually applied compressive load. Coarse aggregate crushing value is the percentage by weight of the crushed material obtained when test aggregates are subjected to a.
Name of the experiment Aggregate Crushing value test. Objective 1. Determine the aggregate crushing value of coarse aggregate. 2. Assess suitability of coarse aggregates for use in different types of road. Theory The “aggregate crushing value” give a relative measure of the resistance of an aggregate to crushing under gradually applied.
Metso Aggregate crushing value test on coarse aggregates gives a relative measure of the resistance of an aggregate crushing under gradually applied compressive load. Coarse aggregate crushing value is the percentage by weight of the crushed material obtained when test aggregates are subjected to a specified load under standardized conditions. Metso Aggregate crushing value is defined [ ].
Mar 29, 2021 Aggregate crushing Test procedure. Oven dry the aggregates. Firstly, sieve the aggregate using Indian standard sieves. Then collect the specimen passed through 12.5 mm and retained on a 10mm sieve. Thus is the test sample of aggregate. Then put the cylinder on the base plate and weight it (W). The aggregate sample should be filled in 3 layers.
AGGREGATE CRUSHING VALUE This test helps to determine the aggregate crushing value of coarse aggregates as per IS 2386 (Part IV) – 1963. The apparatus used is Cylindrical measure and plunger, Compression testing machine, IS Sieves of sizes – 12.5mm, 10mm and 2.36mm Procedure to determine Aggregate Crushing Value i) The aggregates passing through 12.5mm [ ].
This test is repeated once or twice and the average crushing value of the aggregate is determined. The average crushing value in the different tests is the actual crushing value of aggregate. Important points to remember. It is recommended that the crushing value of aggregate should be less than 30 .
This resistance of aggregate may differ from resistance to gradual load which we measure in the crushing value test. Importance of Impact Test on Aggregates The impact test on aggregate is carried out to know the response of aggregates to different kinds of loads that the aggregates will be subjected to during their service life.
Aggregate crushing test is standardized by IS 2386 part-IV and used to verify the crushing strength of aggregates. The aggregates should be oven dried, which can passes through 12.5mm and retained on 10mm sieve. The cylindrical steel cup is stuffed in three layers of aggregate. Each and every layer is tamped with 25 strokes by the rounded end.
AGGREGATE CRUSHING VALUE This test helps to determine the aggregate crushing value of coarse aggregates as per IS 2386 (Part IV) – 1963.as per is code it should not be than 25 for wearing surfaces 45 for non wearing surfaces.
Mar 28, 2021 Aggregate crushing test is done to find out the strength of aggregate which is the fundamental and essential components of concrete, flexible pavements, etc. than 70 to 80 per cent of the volume of concrete is aggregate. Aggregates are a very important component of concrete, so the quality really matters when it comes to aggregates.
1.The ratio of the weight of fines formed to the total sample weight in each test shall be expressed as a percentage, the result being recorded to the first decimal place Aggregate Crushing Value = (B A) X 100 where A = weight of oven-dried sample B = weight in 'g' of fraction passing through 2.36 mm IS sieve. 6.Video Aggregate Crushing Value Test.
May 01, 2021 In the single- and multi-particle crushing tests, the particle size was approximately 25 mm, which is the representative aggregate size from on-site CDW in Hangzhou. Because of the requirements of the specifications of the aggregate crushing value test, the particle size ranged from 9.5 to 13.2 mm. The experimental program is listed in Table 1.
The crushing value test is conducted on aggregates that are used for the construction of roads. Lower crushing value aggregates give much durability for roads due to its lower crushed fraction under the compression load. The road is subjected to motion pressure continuously. So the aggregate used for road construction should be able to sustain that motion pressure.
These tests are a measure of the crushing properties of aggregate and use the same basic equipment. The ACV test requires a standard load of 400 kN to be applied over a period of 10 minutes while the TFV test measures the force required to produce a specified depth of plunger penetration. 150mm Aggregate Crushing Value Apparatus.
Clarification IS 2386 part 4 is used for details on crushing and toughness tests on aggregates. IS 2386 part 5 is used for hardness and durability test. IS 2386 part 1 is used to follow guidelines for shape test. 15. A sample having stripping value as 0 cannot be used for pavement construction.
Feb 08, 2012 The aggregate impact value (AIV) is B AIV = 100 ( ) . . . (1) ARESULTSAn average is taken of the two tests and the result is recorded to the nearestwhole number as the Aggregate Impact Value.The AIV is normally about 105 per cent of the Aggregate Crushing Value and itcan be used for the same purpose. For weak aggregates, the required load.
Aggregate suitable for use as pipe bedding would display a low compaction fraction, indicating it reaches a state of near full compaction under loose placement. Test Method Crushing Value The Aggregate Crushing Value offers a related measure of the resistance of an average to crushing under a compressive load that is gradually applied.

Tamping rod Weigh balance IS Sieves -(12.5mm,10mm 2.36mm) Procedure of the test Aggregate sample shall consists of particles passing on 12.5mm Sieve and retained on 10mm sieve. The aggregate shall be in saturated surface dry condition. Fill the cylindrical measure in three layers of Continue reading AGGREGATE.

Aggregates may be broadly classi fied as natural or artificial, both with respect to source and to method of preparation. Natural sands and gravels are the product of weathering and the action of wind or water, while manufactured crushed fine aggregate and crushed stone coarse and fine aggregate are produced by crushing natural stone.
Jul 01, 2019 The apparatus of the aggregate impact value test consists of A testing machine weighing 45 to 60 kg and having a metal base with a plane lower surface of not less than 30 cm in diameter. Level and plane concrete floor of minimum 45 cm thickness are used to support it. The base of the machine should also have provisions for fixing its base.
