Shape tests on Coarse Aggregates- Flakiness index test and Elongation Index Tests.

Shape test on coarse aggregates constitutes flakiness Index and elongation index tests. The particle size and shape of aggregate is one of the major factors affecting the quality of the concrete.… Read More Shape tests on Coarse Aggregates- Flakiness index test and Elongation Index Tests.

Aggregate crushing test to find Strength of aggregate

Aggregate crushing test is done to find out the strength of aggregate which is the fundamental and essential components of concrete, flexible pavements, etc. More than 70 to 80 per cent of the volume of concrete is aggregate. Aggregates are a very important component of concrete, so the quality really matters when it comes to aggregates. Furthermore, their uses include flexible pavements, railway ballast, etc.… Read More Aggregate crushing test to find Strength of aggregate
