HOW TO EVALUATE QUALITY OF AGGREGATES FOR

2016-2-9  Evaluating Quality of Aggregates. Selecting an aggregate material for use in an asphalt concrete depends upon the availability, cost, and quality of the material, as well as the type of construction that is intended. The suitability of aggregates for use in asphalt concrete is determined by evaluating the material in terms of: (1) Size and grading

Aggregate Testing

Aggregate testing is performed to evaluate the properties of aggregates for asphalt and concrete mixes. Various testing methods are utilized to analyze characteristics including strength and angularity. Alterations in gradation, maximum size, unit weight and moisture can all affect the properties of concrete and asphalt.

Effect of waste glass aggregate on performance of asphalt ...

2021-11-8  AIMS can accurately evaluate angularity and form2D for aggregate based on digital images. The aggregates investigated in this paper are basalt and waste glass with a size of 2.36–4.75 mm and 4.75–9.5 mm. The angularity calculated by gradient vector method is used to characterize the edge sharpness of particles, which range from 1 to 10000.
