SIEVE ANALYSIS OF FINE AGGREGATES ASTM C136 Scope This test method covers the determination of the particle size distribution of fine and coarse aggregates by sieving. A weighed sample of dry aggregate is separated through a series of sieves of progressively smaller openings for determination of particle size distribution. References ASTM E11 Specification for Wire Cloth Sieves for Testing Purposes AASHTO T27 Sieve Analysis of Fine and Coarse Aggregates ASTM C33 Standard Specifications for Concrete Aggregates ASTM C125 Standard Terminology Relating to Concrete and Concrete Aggregates Apparatus Scale (or balance) - 0.1 g accuracy for fine sieve analysis, 0.5 g accuracy for coarse sieve analysis Sieves Mechanical Sieve Shaker Drying Oven (110 +/- 5 °C) Materials Fine Aggregate (<No. 4 sieve) 500 1000g (oven dried) Sieves (for fine grain)
