Aggregate Impact Value (BS 812: Part 3)1.ObjectiveTo determine the aggregate impact value in the laboratory2.IntroductionImpact value of an aggregate is the percentage loss of weight particles passing 2.36mmsieve by the application of load by means of 15 blows of standard hammer and drop, under specified test condition. The aggregate impact value gives a relative measure of theresistance of an aggregate to sudden shock or impact, which in some aggregates differsfrom their resistance to a slowly applied compressive load.3.Apparatusa.Impact testing machine:i.A cylindrical hammer of 13.5kg (30 lbs) sliding freely between twovertical supports (guides).ii.Falls automatically adjusted to the height of 38cm.iii.There is a brass plate over which an open cylindrical steel cup of internal diameter 10.2cm and 5cm depth placed and fixed to the brass plate.Figure 3.1: Impact Testing Machine1
 b.Tamping rod of 1cm diameter and 23cm long rounded at one end and pointed at the other end.Figure 3.2: Tamping Rod4.Methodologya.Samples are weighted up to 600g. b.The aggregate of size 12.5 – 9.5mm are filled in the cylindrical measure in 3layers lapped using tamping rod for 25 times. Straight edge was used as thelevel of surface tamping rod.c.The cylindrical measure was transferred to the brass plate.d.Hammer was released to fall freely on the aggregate and 15 blows aresubjected to a total of the test sample.e.Samples were sieved by 2.36mm sieve after removed from cup.f.Weights of retain ad passing were measured.2
