Durability Assessment of Coarse Aggregates for HotMix Asphalt in Maine. In this study, microDeval and Los Angeles (LA) abrasion tests were used to evaluate the durability of 72 coarse aggregates used for hotmix asphalt (HMA) in Maine. Aggregates used in HMA must be durable and resistant to abrasion and degradation.
Dec 03, 2021 · The recycled coarse aggregate plays a great role as an alternative raw material that can replace the natural coarse aggregate for concrete. With the wave of sustainability on construction, new sustainable and reusable construction materials are needed. One .
Nov 23, 2021 · Acid mine drainage (AMD) entering the environment will cause longterm environmental pollution and ecological damage, the treatment or remediation for which has become a difficult worldwide problem. To control AMD at the source, a novel composite coating, hydroxyapatite (HA) as the filler embedded in a γmercaptopropyltrimethoxysilane (PropSSH) coating, was introduced in this study. .
Effects of using recycled concrete of different qualities as coarse aggregate upon the strength and deformation of concrete are reported. Tests on the aggregates showed that the recycled concrete aggregates have lower specific gravity and higher absorption capacity than the original crushed granite aggregate.
The vacuumdrying method using the CoreDry device was promising, but it was not able to completely dry highly absorptive materials such as BF slag coarse aggregate and recycled concrete. The results of Experiment 4 showed that testing the aggregate in its insitu moisture condition was a better alternative to the standard ovendrying method.
Oct 01, 2011 · Three coarse aggregate types were used in this research, one natural source which is commercially used in Ontario and two recycled sources. The natural aggregate (NA) was provided by a local aggregate supplier and consisted .
EAF oxidizing slag as a byproduct obtained during the process in steel making industry provides great opportunity to utilize it as an alternative to normally available coarse aggregates. The primary aim of this research was to evaluate the physical, mechanical, and durability properties of concrete made with EAF oxidizing slag in addition to ...
The demand for natural aggregates (river sand) is increasing day by day, leading to the destruction of the environment, a burden that will be passed on to young people. Further, wastes from various industries are being dumped in landfills, which poses serious environmental problems. In order to ensure sustainability, both the issues mentioned above can be solved by utilizing industrial waste ...
Jun 25, 2019 · The alarming rate of depletion of natural stone based coarse aggregates is a cause of great concern. The coarse aggregates occupy nearly 6070% by volume of concrete being produced. Research efforts are on to look for alternatives to stone based coarse aggregates from sustainability point of view. Response surface methodology (RSM) is .
The superplasticizer was a polycarboxylic etherbased liquid with a pH of about, a volumetric mass of kg/liter at 200C, and an alkali content of less than g Na 2 O equivalent/liter of admixture. Concrete was made with fine aggregates (M sand) that passed through a mm IS sieve and coarse aggregates that passed through a 20 mm sieve.
Full Article. Characterization and Impact of Curing Duration on the Compressive Strength of Coconut Shell Coarse Aggregate in Concrete. Mei Yun Chin, a Md. Rezaur Rahman, b, * Kuok King Kuok, a Wai Yun Chiew, a and Muhammad Khusairy Bin Bakri b Partial replacement with coconut shell coarse aggregates was studied as a means to produce lightweight coconut .

The Aggregate and Petrographic Laboratory (APL) at the TurnerFairbank Highway Research Center (TFHRC) provides facilities for the evaluation, preparation, and testing of aggregate sources, products, and samples for use in concrete, asphalt mixtures, and granular base course appliions.
In the following table the main differences between Fine and coarse aggregate are given: Fine aggregates are small size filler materials in construction. Coarse aggregates are larger size filler materials in construction. Fine aggregates are the particles that pass through mm sieve and retain on mm sieve.
Dec 02, 2021 · The influence of lightweight expanded clay aggregate (LECA) on the physicomechanical properties and microstructure of geopolymer mortar containing slag binder alkaliactivated with sodium silie solution before and after exposure to thermal loads was investigated. In the current procedure, siliceous sand was partially substituted with LECA fine aggregate at levels of 0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, .
SMA is made by a large number of coarse aggregate skeleton formed, so the coarse aggregate gradation on pavement performance of SMA effect. Since 80 time, SMA mixture in many European countries has been widely used. In recent years, our country road workers on SMA mixture also conducted very fruitful research, and started engineering appliion.
Mar 01, 2000 · Particle shape, angularity, and surface texture are critical properties in assessing aggregate usage for asphalt concrete. Fractured and flat and/or elongated particles are used in most specifiions to assure quality. The particle index and uncompacted void tests indirectly measure particle shape, angularity, and surface texture and offer alternative options.
