Aggregate Crushing Value - Civil Engineering
AGGREGATE CRUSHING VALUE This test helps to determine the aggregate crushing value of coarse aggregates as per IS: 2386 (Part IV) – 1963. The apparatus used is Cylindrical measure and plunger, Compression testing machine, IS Sieves of sizes – 12.5mm, 10mm and 2.36mmAggregate Crushing Value (ACV) Sets - Mechanical and,,The Aggregate Crushing Value (ACV) Test Set provides a relative measure of the resistance of an aggregate to crushing under a gradually applied compressive load. Each set consists of steel cylinder, plunger, base plate, cylindrical measure and tamping rod.PROPERTIES AND TESTING OF AGGREGATES FOR,Impact Test on Aggregates. Impact value of aggregate will give aggregate capability against sudden loads or forces. For this test also aggregate passing through 12.5mm and retained on 10mm sieve is taken and oven dried. Fill the cylinder with aggregate in 3 layers, 25 strokes of tamping for each layer. Weight w1 noted.
