Oven Dry Aggregates

Study on Tests Fine and Coarse Aggregate Engineering.

01 09 2017  However the OPBC aggregates were crushed using a crushing machine and then sieved The both aggregates OPS and OPBC were prepared with the similar grading of the aggregates with the maximum size of 12 mm For each concrete mix the OPBC and OPS aggregates were weighed in dry conditions and immersed in water for 24 h.

As aggregates mass varies with the moisture content we determine the specific gravity of aggregate at a fixed moisture contentThere are four moisture contents defined for aggregates which is dependent on the amount of water that is held within the pores on the surface of the particles.

Concrete is one of the most widely used construction materials throughout the worldMany desirable properties such as high compressive strength excellent durability and fire resistance contributed toward its wide range of applicability.

It is the ability of aggregates that resist sudden impact or shock load on it Also it can be defined as the resistance of aggregate to failure by impact load is known as the Impact Value of Aggregate.

Note that pores not connected to the surface are not considered.

Nov 09 2014nbsp018332Put the oven to a temperature of 110 degree CelsiusOnce the sample is oven dried weigh the sample mark as Mass at Dry condition or M2The sieves number that you will use in the 20 size aggregate samples are 37Place the bigger size of sieve on top of smaller and in order.

Placing the aggregate in the oven under 105110 C186 for 24 hours so that they are in the Oven Dried condition Bulk Specific Gravity of Aggregate HIF10003 Pavements Bulk specific gravity of aggregate is important information for designing HMA because it is used to calculate SSD mass water submerged mass and oven dry mass.

Ovens used for the test are usually electrically heated and sit on a counter top The outside dimensions vary in size from 1w x 1d x 2h on up At the university our largest oven is about 6 x 4 x 4 and when we need something larger we set our laboratory kiln to the correct conditions to create an oven in which we can oven dry whole boards.

Pavement Interactive was developed by the Pavement Tools Consortium a partnership between several state DOTs the FHWA and the University of Washington as part of their effort to further develop and use computerbased pavement tools.

Specific GravityRelative density of Coarse Aggregates.

Since aggregates are porous to some extent they can absorb moistureGenerally this is not a concern for HMA because the aggregate is dried before HMA productionHowever this is a concern for PCC because aggregate is generally not dried and therefore the aggregate moisture content will affect the water content and thus the watercement ratio also of the produced PCC and the water content also affects aggregate proportioning because it contributes to aggregate weight.

Since the asused moisture content is greater than the absorption for each aggregate each aggregate contributes the excess water to the mix thus reducing the water that must be added to mixThe water added to the mix is the water computed for ovendry aggregates 305 Ibyd1 plus the excess water in each aggregate.

Air Dry Density Oven dry density 85kgm3 equilibrium moisture content 5 Fresh Wet Density Oven dry density 250kgm3 Density classes should be taken from Table 9 of BS EN 206 – 1Concrete using coarse Lytag LWA and natural fine aggregate should be assumed to be Density Class 1.

The weight of oven dry aggregate divided by its absolute volume including the natural pores in the aggregate particlesThe weight of aggregate required to fill a container of unit volumeThe difference in weight of the aggregate in saturated surface dry condition and in moist condition.

They provide the foundation for roads bridges and buildings while also making up over 90 of asphalt pavement and up to 80 of a concrete mixOn average 38000 tons of aggregates are necessary to construct one lane mile of interstate highwayConstruction of the average home requires 400 tons of aggregate while the average size school or hospital requires 15000 tons.

The impact test on aggregate is carried out to know the response of aggregates to different kinds of loads that the aggregates will be subjected to during their service life.
