Fine Aggregate Specific Gravity

Calculations

Gsb = A / (B + S - C)

A = mass oven dry

B = mass of pycnometer filled with water

C = mass pycnometer, SSD aggregate and water

S = mass SSD aggregate

Gsb,SSD = S / (B + S - C)

Gsa = A / (B + A - C)

Water absorption capacity, %

Absorption % = [(S - A) / A] * 100

Fine Aggregate Specific Gravity

Calculations - Example Problem

Given

A = mass oven dry =489.3

B = mass of pycnometer filled with water = 666.5

C = mass pycnometer, SSD aggregate and

water = 982.3

S = mass SSD aggregate = 500.1

Fine Aggregate Specific Gravity

Calculations - Example Problem

Gsb = A / (B + S - C) = 498.9/(666.5+500.1-982.3)

= 2.707

Gsb,SSD = S / (B + S - C) = 500.1/(666.5+500.1-982.3)

= 2.714

Gsa = A / (B + A - C) = 498.9/(666.5+498.9-982.3)

= 2.725

Water absorption = [(S - A) / A] * 100 =

(500.1-498.9)/498.9 = 0.24 %

Blending of Aggregates

Reasons for blending

Obtain desirable gradation

Single natural or quarried material not

enough

Economical to combine natural and

process materials

Blending of Aggregates

Numerical method

Trial and error

Basic formula

Blending of Aggregates

P = Aa + Bb + Cc + .

Where:

P = % of material passing a given sieve for

the blended aggregates

A, B, C, = % material passing a given

sieve for each aggregate

a, b, c, . = Proportions (decimal fractions)

of aggregates to be used in blend

Blending of Aggregates

P = Aa + Bb +

Batching of Aggregate

Blends

Why Batch?

We Want To Reproduce the Desired

Gradation for Mix Design

Batching

Things We Need To Know To Batch

% of Each Stockpile in Blend

% Retained For Each Sieve of Each

Stockpile

Batching

Mper sieve = %Ret * %Agg * Mbatch

Mper sieve = Mass of one aggregate in the blend for one sieve size

%Ret = Percent retained on the sieve expressed in decimal form

%Agg = The percent of the stock pile to being used in the blend in decimal form

EXAMPLE:

How much 1.18 mm material do I need from Aggregate #1 for a

4,000 gram batch given the following:

% Retained on 1.18 mm sieve = 23.0 %

% Agg. #1 Used in Blend = 30.0 %

Total Batch wt. = 4000 grams
