If an aggregate is rounded or angular then what value will be use about dimension? Please explain.

An aggregate is said to be flaky if its least dimension is less that 3-5.

That's why we use 3Ã·5.

That's why we use 3Ã·5.

Flaky aggregate = 3/5 of there's mean dimension.

= (3/5) *{(75+60) /2}.

= (3/5) *(67.5).

= 40.5mm.

= (3/5) *{(75+60) /2}.

= (3/5) *(67.5).

= 40.5mm.

Flakiness means 60%(3/5) of avg size of particles.

Average of 75mm and 60 mm sieve is (75+60)/2=67.5.

For flaky if its minimum dimension is less than 3/5 of 67.5 i.e. 67.5*(3/5) = 40.5mm.

For flaky if its minimum dimension is less than 3/5 of 67.5 i.e. 67.5*(3/5) = 40.5mm.

Since we know.

Flakiness index= .6(3/5)* average size of aggregate((passing size+retained size)/2).

So it is 40.5mm.

Flakiness index= .6(3/5)* average size of aggregate((passing size+retained size)/2).

So it is 40.5mm.

Flakiness means 3/5 of mean size of aggregate, therefore it is 40.5.

If avg has be taken into account then according to me, as agg are retained on 60mm sieve size so it means that most of the agg are retained at 60 so we have to consider that value only rather than taking commutative of two sieve sizes isn't it?

Means (3/5) * 60 that comes 36mm.

Means (3/5) * 60 that comes 36mm.

Flaky aggregate is a aggregate having a size less than 60% of average size of the two aggregate.

So now (75+60)/2 = 67.5.

Now 60% of 67.5 is,

That is 67.5*(60/100) = 40.5.

So now (75+60)/2 = 67.5.

Now 60% of 67.5 is,

That is 67.5*(60/100) = 40.5.

@prahumac we multiply it by 3/5 of its mean dimension
