GRADED AGGREGATE BASE, COMPOSITE MIXTURE . Subsection 305.2.5.5 of the Standard Specifications, Edition of 2007 is amended such that the following gradation is optionally allowed for Macadam Base and Marine Limestone Base under limited conditions as specified herein. Refer to this gradation as Macadam Base Type B or Marime Limestone Base Type
Aggregate base is a construction aggregate typically composed of crushed rock capable of passing through a 20 millimetres 3 4 in rock component particles will vary in size from 20 mm down to dust. The material can be made of newly mined rock, or of recycled asphalt and concrete.
Examples are sands from river beds, pits and beaches, and gravels from river banks. ii Byeproduct These include materials obtained as wastes from some industrial and metallurgical engineering operations, which possess suitable properties for being used as aggregate. Examples Cinder obtained from burning of coal in locomotives and kilns.
Aggregate is primarily responsible for the loadsupporting capacity of a pavement. Aggregate types are natural or uncrushed smooth and roundor crushed with single or multiple crushed faces. Rough textured, crushed and angular aggregate is needed to carry heavy loads without rutting or deformation.
Dec 20, 2011 RE Dense Graded Aggregate vs. Crushed Stone for Sidewalk Construction cvg CivilEnvironmental 20 Dec 11 1455 doesnt really change the recommendation. a good base material should be well graded, granular material, composed of mostly crushed, sound aggregate, minimum of fines, able to be compacted to a dense mixture.
SECTION 02310 AGGREGATE BASE COURSES PART 1 GENERAL Aggregate for subballast shall consist entirely of crushed stone and have at least two fractured faces. No reclaimed asphalt or concrete shall cubic yards of base course material or one days production, whichever is the greater amount. PART 3 EXECUTION
coarse aggregates are used in HMA, compacted aggregates, and asphalt seal coats except asphalt seal coats used on shoulders. Crushed particles are defined as those particles having one or more sharp, angular, fractured faces. Fractured faces that have an area less than 25 percent of the
Fifty percent by weight of the combined coarse aggregate, other than naturally occurring roughtextured aggregate, shall consist of crushed pieces having one or more faces produced by fracture. Crushed, coarse aggregate is defined for the purpose of this specification as material passing a 50 mm sieve and retained on a 2 mm No. 10 sieve.
Crushed stone is a basic material used in various capacities. It is a widely used raw asset in the construction industry. The extraction of hard rock that is turned into various crushed stone grades is a great economic indicator. Crushed stone is and will continue to be a very integral part of things we build.

ii Abstract Cementtreated base CTB is a mixedinplace or centralplantproduced material consisting of soilaggregate, cement, and water that creates a strong and durable stabilized roadway base. This guide to CTB discusses its applications, benefits, design, construction, testing, and performance.
tests were conducted on base course aggregate gradation meeting VAOT base course specifications. It is well documented that the scalping of the larger stones and replacing with equivalent smaller aggregates changes the structure of the base course and

The crushed aggregate base material shall be placed on the moistened subgrade in layers of uniform thickness with a mechanical spreader. The maximum depth of a compacted layer shall
RCM is most often used as aggregate in a base or subbase course. Although it is generally of high enough quality to be used as base material, RCM can also be used for lesser applications like embankment or fill material.. Since RCM is a crushed material, the angular aggregates will provide excellent stiffness and load transfer capability.
Aggregate is commonly used for base and surface courses at recreation sites and on trails. Aggregate includes combinations of crushed stone, gravel, crushed gravel, sand, or other mineral materials. Aggregate is produced using crushing, screening, pitrun, or gridrolling methods.
Being a 100 percent crushed material, processed RCM aggregates lock up well in granular base applications, providing good load transfer when placed on weaker subgrade. The lower compacted unit weight of RCM aggregates compared with conventional mineral aggregates results in higher yield greater volume for the same weight, and is therefore

2001.2 Crushed Rock and Rock Dust. Crushed rock and rock dust shall be the product of crushing rock or gravel. The portion of the material that is retained on a 38inch 9.5mm sieve shall contain at least 50 percent of particles having three or more fractured faces. Not over 5 percent shall be pieces that show no such faces resulting from

Material shall be ordered in full truck load lots. 3. Contractor shall proceed with delivery of crushed aggregate base coarse Compaction Gravel upon 12 hour notice. 4.
a Subbase material may consist of any mixture of natural or crushed gravel, crushed stone or slag, crushed hydraulic cement concrete CHCC, natural or crushed sand with or without soil mortar. Subbase material may be used in a stabilized or unstabilized form. b Aggregate base material may be designated as Type I or Type II as follows
It includes gravel, crushed rock, sand, recycled concrete, slag, and synthetic aggregate. Aggregate is a granular material, such as sand, gravel, crushed stone, crushed hydrauliccement concrete, or iron blastfurnace slag, used with a hydraulic cementing medium to produce either concrete or mortar. Types of aggregates include Coarse aggregate and fine aggregate.
Important issues are reviewed to shed light onto what tests are used by agencies to characterize recycled materials for unbound granular base subbase acceptance and design. aGGREGaTE TYPES aND SOURCES According to the ASTM, aggregates are defined as granu lar materials of mineral composition such as sand, gravel, shell, slag, or crushed
OpenGraded Base Courses for SlabsonGround ASCC Position Statement 37 S ome specifications for concrete slabsonground call for concrete to be placed on a layer of granular solidated. This penetration into the subbase base restricts material containing very few fines. ASTM No. 57 and No. 67 coarse aggregates are examples of such materials.
All deficiency corrections and drainage provisions should be made prior to constructing the aggregate base. The crushed aggregate base course should consist of one or more layers placed directly on the prepared subgrade, spread, and compacted to the uniform thickness and density as required on the plans or established in the contract.
Bases and Subbases for Concrete Pavements . use less aggregate material. Issues for PCC included nonuniform and low compressive strength, inadequate mixture design, mixing, example of an asphalttreated base, and Figure 7 shows a cementtreated opengraded drainage
Coarse aggregate angularity is important to ensure adequate aggregate interlock and prevent excessive HMA deformation under load . Figure 1 Angular Coarse Aggregate. The CAA test estimates coarse aggregate angularity by visually inspecting a small sample of coarse aggregate and separating the sample into those pieces with a fractured face and those without Figure 2.
