Shape Index Caliper

W A is Dry weight of aggregate (The weight in g of ovendried aggregate in air) W B is Weight of aggregate immersed in water (The weight in g of the saturated surkedry aggregate in air) Note: Water absorption shall not be more than 2% per unit by weight. In case in Water absorption is higher than 2% than soundness test is required.

TESTING ALKALI

the current physical tests are indirect methods of measuring the shape property of aggregates. Also, some of the current physical test methods are laborious and time-consuming, and there is a need for better methods that are accurate and rapid in measuring the aggregate shape properties.

Nov 16, 2019· The flakiness index of aggregates is the percentages by weight of particles whose least dimension (thickness) is less than 3/5 th (0.6) of their mean dimension. The test does not apply to sizes smaller than 6.3 mm. [For example, the mean sieve size for an aggregate piece passing through 50 mm and retained on 40 mm sieve is (50+40)/2 i.e. 45 mm.
