Experimental Results All raw experimental data and calculated results are shown in Appendix A. Specific Gravity and Absorption of Coarse Aggregates The masses measured for Test I include the mass of the bowl used to hold the aggregates. This mass must be subtracted from the measured values to obtain the mass of the aggregate in the saturated, SSD and oven-dry states. Temperature of water the aggregates were submerged in was recorded to determine its density. All recorded data can be found in Table 3. Table Bulk Unit Weight and Air Voids for Compacted Coarse Aggregates Masses measured include the mass of the measure used and a glass top. These masses must be subtracted from the measured values to obtain the mass of water. Temperature of water used in the experiment was recorded to determine its density. The volume of the measure was

Table Gradation of Fine Aggregates The mass of each sieve used in Test III was recorded prior to agitation. Afterward, the sieves were reweighed with any aggregate retained. Recorded data can be found in Table 5. Table Fine Aggregate Angularity The measured masses for Test IV included the mass of the container used in the experiment. The mass of the measure was subtracted from the gross mass to determine mass of water and aggregate used. Temperature of the water used was recorded to determine its density. The volume of the container was determined by the volume of the water used for calibration. The recorded data can be found in Table 6. Trial 1 appeared to contain more angular, larger sized aggregates as compared to Trial 2....
