Division of Engineering Services:: The particle is flat and elongated if the flattest portion of the particle can be placed through the smaller opening. The complete procedure for determination of relative shape characteristics of coarse aggregates using the Four- Station Caliper is described in ASTM D Flat and elongated particles have long been considered undesirable in hot asstm asphalt HMA mixes due to their tendency to break down during construction and traffic.
Determine the proportion of the sample in each group by mass. Mining Equipment Sales Companies.
specification of flat and elongated particles
Coarse aggregate shall be aggregate retained on the No. Add to my manuals Add.
Provide coarse aggregate free of coatings of clay and silt. The data for comparison, as well as the results of the 5: The particles shape of course aggregates influences the properties of some construction materials and may affect their placement and consolidation.
This test method provides a means for checking compliance with asgm that limit such particles or to determine the relative shape characteristics of coarse aggregates.
For Classification of Elongated Particle Testing:. Flat Particles, Elongated Particles, or Flat and Elongated Particles in Coarse Aggregates Background Flat or elongated aggregate particles can, if present in sufficient number, 1 impede compaction or 2 affect HMA behavior by fracturing during compaction. The blending shall produce a consistent and acceptable product.
If the thickness of the same. Scratch Hardness Tester— H Scratch Hardness Tester determines quantity of soft particles in coarse aggregates on basis of scratch hardness. Flat and Elongated Particles shall be determined on the aggregate blend.
Currently, the Superpave mix design system currently specifies a maximum limit of 10 percent of flat and elongated particles at the 5: Flat and elongated particle pavementinteractive.
