Get PriceEmail contactGrading of aggregates is determining the average grain size of the aggregates before they are used in construction. This is applied to both coarse and fine aggregates . The aggregate sample is sieved through a set of sieves and weights retained on each sieve in percentage terms are summed up.

Get PriceEmail contactGrading of aggregates gives uniformity in the specific weight of concrete. Grading of aggregates reduces the chances of segregation in concrete. The graduation curve is also used to estimate the type of soil. The graduation curve is used to calculate the coefficient of uniformity and coefficient of curvature.

Get PriceEmail contactTypical gradations are near the 0.45 power curve but not right on it. Generally, a true maximum density gradation (exactly on the 0.45 power curve) would result in unacceptably low VMA. Gap Graded. Refers to a gradation that contains only a small percentage of aggregate particles in the mid-size range. The curve is flat in the mid-size range.

Get PriceEmail contactA slice of a core of well-graded aggregate concrete shows a packed field of many different particle sizes. It is characterized by the S- shaped in gradation curve. • Poor graded: Poor-graded aggregate is characterized by small variation in size. It contains aggregate particles that are almost of the same size.
