The crushing value of aggregate is very important to know the strength of the aggregate. For finding the resistance of aggregate under gradually applied compressive load, the crushing value test of aggregate is done. For the crushing value test, the following procedure is followed. Procedure for finding the crushing value of aggregate. Aggregate passing through … Read more How to determine the crushing value of aggregate?
