a. Gee:
This method is based on the classicationo aggregate particles as faky when they have athickness (smallest dimension) o less than 0.6 otheir 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.
B. appus:
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 asspecied 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. Smpe 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. Beore testing it shallbe brought to a dry condition by standard methods.
D. Pedue:
Carry out a sieve analysis using thesieves given in Table 9.
