Bulk Specific Gravity - an overview | ScienceDirect …

Bulk specific gravity of aggregate is important information for designing hot mix asphalt because it is used to calculate voids in mineral aggregate and voids filled with asphalt. Moreover, different procedures are used to determine the Gsb of coarse and fine aggregate ( Buchanan, 2000; Hall et al., 2001; Malpass and Khosla, 2001; Cooley et al., 2003; Williams, 2007; FHWA, 2010 ).

This is because the flocs aggregated using high-specific gravity ballasts (ballast C) show faster settling (105mh-1 compared to 99mh-1 of ballast D at G value: 1250s-1) despite a comparatively smaller ballast fraction (2.3% compared to 3.5% of ballast D at G value: 1250s-1) in the floc aggregate. Overall, the observations of average ballast induction at various G values agree with the ...

Increasing specific gravity was linked to increased long-term ballast aggregate durability. Trap rocks were also found to be more durable than granitoid rocks. Very low SSA was linked to significantly increased permeability for ballast aggregates. Void ratio again formed distinct groupings when plotted against permeability, which again may indicated an optimum void ratio resulting in maximum ...
