The particle is flat and elongated if the maximum dimension perpendicular to the length and width thickness can be placed through the smaller opening. Flat and elongated particle pavementinteractive.
When sieve mesh sizes are referenced, the alternate inch-pound designations are provided for information purposes and enclosed in parenthesis. A flat and elongated piece is defined as one having a asym of length to thickne ss greater than five. Proportional Calipers Device for Aggregates Testing This asfm is used in the Superpave specification to identify aggregate that may have a tendency atm impede compaction or have difficulty meeting VMA specifications due to aggregate degradation.
Evaluation of the Specification for Flat and Elongated Proportional Caliper for measuring flat and elongated particles Taking for example the current methodology for measuring flat and elongated asym, as per ASTM specification ….
The complete procedure for determination of relative shape characteristics of coarse aggregates using the Four- Station Caliper is described in ASTM D Find out why Close. Generally, throughout the country, very few coarse aggregates will fail the flat and elongated specification at a 5: Aggregates for Concrete Construction Aggregate Concrete. A flat and elongated piece is defined as one having a ratio of length to thickne ss greater than five. Use the proportional caliper device, shown in Figure 1.
Flat and elongated requirements do not apply.
Periodically, inspect to width greater than a specific value. The apparatus consists of a stainless steel hopper, stand, measure and strike-off bar and a mm square glass plate for calibration of the measure. Order overflow pan and material handling scoop qstm.
This test method covers the determination of the percentages of flat particles, elongated particles, or flat and elongated particles in coarse aggregates.
specification of flat and elongated particles
Method B is a comparison aztm the maximum particle dimension to the minimum particle dimension and is intended for use with Superpave specifications. Method B is a comparison of the maximum particle dimension to the minimum particle dimension and is intended for use with Superpave specifications. Flat and elongated particles of aggregates, for some construction uses, may interfere with asmt and result in harsh, difficult to place materials. For determining flakiness index. Furnished with one extra brass scratch rod.
Flat and elongated particles Clay Content. Table 1 Aggregate Quality Requirements Coarse aggregate shall be aggregate retained on the No. When sieve mesh sizes are referenced, the alternate inch-pound designations are provided for information purposes and enclosed in parenthesis. Enter text from picture: Flat and elongated particles have long been considered undesirable in hot mix asphalt HMA mixes due to their tendency to break down during construction and traffic.
Standard Test Method for Flat Particles, Elongated Particles, or Flat and Elongated Particles in Coarse Aggregate This test method covers the determination of the percentages of flat particles, elongated particles, or flat and elongated particles in coarse aggregates. The granular base is typically dense graded, with the amount of fines limited to promote drainage. 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.
In operation, the aggregate is allowed to free-fall mm from the funnel bottom into a mm diameter by mm high axtm measure. The applied ratios are 1: Method A is a reflection of the original procedure as developed prior to Superpave and is intended for all non-Superpave applications.

Page 2 Every six months add a drop of oil Elongated Particles — The particles having a ratio of length into the ratio holes for smooth operation. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of d479 standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
Provide coarse aggregate free of coatings of clay and silt. Length – the maximum dimension. Use to determine the uncompacted void content of a fine aggregate sample.
