In PCC, gradation helps determine durability, porosity, workability, cement and water requirements, strength, and shrinkage. Because of this, gradation is a primary concern in HMA and PCC mix design and thus most agencies specify allowable aggregate gradations for both. Maximum Aggregate Size
The standard gradation and sieve analysis test is: AASHTO T 27 and ASTM C 136: Sieve Analysis of Fine and Coarse Aggregates; Background. The particle size distribution, or gradation, of the constituent aggregate (Figure 3) is one of the most influential characteristics in determining how an HMA mixture will perform as a pavement material.
Concrete Aggregate Combined Gradation Example General MDT is moving toward optimized gradations for concrete aggregate. This example presents some basic computations for optimizing a blend of multiple aggregates. Included is the production of three optimization charts that may be required to be included in the concrete mix

If there is a deficiency in a locally available fine aggregate, concrete may benefit from the addition of air entrainment, additional cement, or a supplemental cementitious material (SCM) to address these shortcomings. Broad coarse-aggregate gradation ranges are listed in Table 2 of ASTM C 33.
The important characteristics of aggregates for concrete are listed in Table 5-2 and most are discussed in the following section: Grading. Grading is the particle-size distribution of an aggregate as determined by a sieve analysis (ASTM C 136 or AASHTO. 80. Design and Control of Concrete Mixtures EB001. Table 5-1.

Section 902. AGGREGATES 902.01. General Requirements. ... Ensure the fine aggregate portion of the gradation does not exceed a liquid limit of 25.0 percent or a plasticity index of 4.0. ... concrete aggregate according to the original coarse aggregate type, except in the following situations:
A gradation test is performed on a sample of aggregate in a laboratory. A typical sieve analysis involves a nested column of sieves with wire mesh cloth (screen). See the separate Mesh (scale) page for details of sieve sizing.. A representative weighed sample is poured into the top sieve which has the largest screen openings.
Dec 01, 2014· Sieve Analysis (ASTM C 136, AASHTO T-27): This test method evaluates the gradation of aggregate using a series of sieves. The results are then plotted on to a semi-log aggregate gradation chart. This chart shows the particle size distribution for any given aggregate and can then be better evaluated for its use in portland cement concrete and ...

This specification covers the quality and grading of fine aggregate for hydraulic cement concrete used in pavements or bases, highway bridges, and incidental structures. This specification is for use by a contractor, concrete supplier, or other purchaser as part of the purchase document describing the material to be furnished.
The aggregate gradation is an important characteristic because it determines the paste requirement for workable concrete. The aggregate gradation is an important characteristic because it determines the paste requirement for workable concrete. Home; News.
Gradation: Recycled concrete material should be crushed and screened to produce aggregate that satisfies the AASHTO M6 (5) and M80 (6) gradation requirements for PCC. With appropriate adjustments, a plant can produce any desired gradation. Crushed fine aggregates (minus 4.75 mm (No.4 sieve)) are generally not used or are blended with natural sand.
AND COARSE AGGREGATES AASHTO T 27 SCOPE The sieve analysis, commonly known as the gradation test, is a basic essential test for all aggregate technicians. The sieve analysis determines the gradation (the distribution of aggregate particles, by size, within a given sample) in order to determine compliance with design,
Aggregates can be classified in many ways. Classification of aggregates based on shape and size such as coarse and fine aggregates are discussed here, Aggregates are the important constituents of the concrete which give body to the concrete and also reduce shrinkage. Aggregates …
