ASTM 57 Stone Specifications

ASTM No. 57 is a type of aggregate grading. The ASTM specification for this type of concrete aggregate is C 33. Stone mixes made using this type of aggregate are porous. According to Materials for Sustainable Sites by Meg Calkins, larger sizes such as 57, 67 and 78 will have more rapid permeability and little susceptibility to clogging.

Aggregate Size

Aggregate size fractionation is based on the premises that: (1) organic matter binds mineral particles together. Aggregate size fractionation can then be used to separate the organic matter responsible for aggregation (Puget et al., 1995) and (2) aggregates of different sizes correspond to different microbial habitats and provide contrasting conditions for decomposition (Beare et al., 1994

Aggregate Properties

A maximum size up to 40 mm is used for coarse aggregate in most structural applications, while for mass concreting purposes such as dams, sizes up to 150 mm may be used. Fine aggregates, on the other hand, have particles up to a minimum size of 0.075 mm. Typical particle size analyses of coarse and fine aggregates are shown in Figure 1.

The crushing test on aggregate gives a relative measure of the resistance of an aggregate crushing under gradually applied compressive load. If the aggregate crushing value is less than 10, it signifies an exceptionally strong aggregate. Whereas, if the crushing value is 35 or above, it would normally be considered as weak aggregates.
