Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard.
CE Construction Materials Engineering: The test method covers the determination of the percentages of flat particles, elongated particles, or flat and …. Currently, the Superpave mix design system currently specifies a maximum limit of 10 percent of flat and elongated particles at the 5: BoxLewis Center, Ohio Percentages, calculated by mass for flat and elongated particles, for each sieve size tested, and the combined aggregate percent for flat and elongated particles. Origin of Life Selfassembly, Selforganization, and.
Use GDT to analyze these materials. Find out why Close. Find out why Close. Flat and elongated particles Clay Content. Enter text from picture: The user should carefully review the ASTM procedure before testing.
This characterization is used in the Superpave specifiion to identify aggregate that may have a tendency to impede compaction or have difficulty meeting VMA specifiions due to aggregate degradation.
The SI units in parentheses are for information purposes only. Consult the current edition of ASTM for procedure in its entirety and equipment specification details. For determining flakiness index. Add to my manuals Add. Granular subbase is also dense graded, but tends to be somewhat more coarse than granular base.

All test results were based on a percent of sample mass. Cubical particles are desirable, with a limited amount of flat or thin and elongated particles. It is the opinion of the research team that this percentage should be not more than 10 percent flat and elongated particles by weight utilizing a 5: Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Use the proportional caliper device, shown in Figure 1.
