Total: 20 points (2 points to Final Grade).

1. Classify and list the aggregate sources?

2. How do you interpret sieve no. (e.g. No.8)?

3. Enumerate the shapes of aggregates particles

4. What are the aggregate’s moisture states?

5. List Consensus properties for coarse aggregate and fine aggregate (two each)

6. Which aggregates use more binder or cement paste, fine or coarse aggregates? Why?

7. Which aggregates are more pervious? Small or large? Explain.

8. In fine aggregate angularity test: Sand A = rounded particles; Sand B = angular particles,

which sand has tightest packing under a free fall?

9. A sample of aggregates has the following properties: Moist mass = 733.21g,
Dry mass = 666,19g. Mass of aggregate submerged in water = 329.5g.

Find :
a. The aggregate bulk dry specific gravity
b. The moisture content
c. Absorption (report as percent)

10. Fine aggregate angularity test; density of sand = 2.80 g/cc, Weight of sand = 200 g,
Volume of cylinder = 100ml. Calculate volume or % air in the cylinder after free fall.
