# Aggregates

Example 4-2 The dry mass of a sample is 2239.1 g. The mass in saturated surface-

is 2268.4 g. The net volume is 835.4 cm3. Find the relative density values.

Mass of absorbed water

2268.4 - 2239.1 = 29.3 g

Volume of absorbed water

29.3 g

= 29.3 cm 3

1

g/cm 3

Bulk Volume

835.4 cm 3 + 29.3 cm 3 = 864.7 cm 3

Therefore

RD A =

2239.1 g

= 2.68

• 835.4 cm3 x 1 g/cm3

RD B =

2239.1 g

= 2.59

• 864.7 cm3 x 1 g/cm3

RD SSD =

2268.4 g

= 2.62

864.7 cm3 x 1 g/cm3

% Abs =

29.3 g

= 1.31%

2239.1 g
