Engineering-Geological Evaluation of Rock Materials

2012-2-5  For road construction, there are several very important considerations as to whether a rock is suitable or not for use as aggregates. Aggregate used in the surface course (running surface) of roads must be resistant to the polishing action of vehicle tyres, otherwise the road can become slippery, especially when wet. It is essential that aggregates used in construction purposes are strong and durable. The properties used to assess the s uitability of rocks as aggregate materials include the following tests: strength, water absorption, abrasion resistance, flakiness, resistance to weathering. Laboratory study included petrographic analysis of the ro c ks, first by thin sectioning and examination of the slides under plane and cross polarized light. The strength of the aggregates were evaluated by a series of composite tests including Aggregate Abrasion Value (AAV), Aggregate Crushing Value (ACV), Aggregate Impact Value (AIV), Specific Gravity and Water Absorption as contained in BS 812, and AASHTO T96-92.
