This method is based on the classicationo aggregate particles as faky when they have athickness (smallest dimension) o less than 0.6 otheir nominal size, this size being taken as the meano the limiting sieve apertures used or determiningthe size raction in which the particle occurs. Thefakiness Index o an aggregate sample is ound byseparating the faky particles and expressing theirmass as a percentage o the mass o the sampletested. The test is not applicable to material passinga 6.30 mm BS test sieve or retained on a 63.0 mmBS test sieve.
The ollowing apparatus is required.1. A metal thickness gauge o the pattern shown inFigure 5 or special sieves having elongated aper-tures. The width o the apertures and the thicknesso the sheet used in the gauge or sieve shall be asspecied in Figure 5.2. BS test sieves as shown in Table 9 as appro-priate.3. A balance accurate to 0.5% o mass o the testsample.
c. Smpe f es:
The sample or this test shall betaken in accordance with BS 812. It shall comply withthe appropriate minimum mass, or sieve analysiswith due allowance or 63.0 mm BS test sieve andpassing a 6.30 mm BS test sieve. The sample shallbe taken rom the laboratory sample by quartering orby means o a sample divider. Beore testing it shallbe brought to a dry condition by standard methods.
Carry out a sieve analysis using thesieves given in Table 9.
