Tests for geometrical properties of aggregates - Part 6: Assessment of surface characteristics - Flow coefficient of aggregates

This European Standard specifies the reference method used for type testing, and in case of dispute, for determining the flow coefficient of coarse and fine aggregates. For other purposes, in particular factory production control, other methods may be used provided that an appropriate working relationship with the reference method has been established. Examples of advanced test methods can be found in the Bibliography.
This European Standard applies to coarse aggregate of sizes between 4 mm and 20 mm and to fine aggregate of size up to 2 mm.
NOTE 1   For coarse aggregates between 4 mm and 20 mm, the flow coefficient is linked with the percentage of crushed or broken surfaces of an aggregate and can therefore be used in association with the method specified in EN 933-5. Shape and surface texture characteristics also influence the result.
NOTE 2   Experience of this test has been generally limited to natural aggregates.

Prüfverfahren für geometrische Eigenschaften von Gesteinskörnungen - Teil 6: Beurteilung der Oberflächeneigenschaften - Fließkoeffizienten von Gesteinskörnungen

Diese Europäische Norm legt das Referenzverfahren fest, das für die Erstprüfung und im Streitfall für die Bestimmung des Fließkoeffizienten von groben und feinen Gesteinskörnungen angewendet wird. Für andere Zwecke, speziell im Rahmen der werkseigenen Produktionskontrolle, dürfen andere Verfahren angewendet werden, sofern ein ausreichender Zusammenhang mit dem Referenzverfahren nachgewiesen wurde. Beispiele für andere Prüfverfahren können in den Literaturhinweisen gefunden werden.
Die vorliegende Europäische Norm gilt für grobe Gesteinskörnungen mit Korngrößen zwischen 4 mm und 20 mm und feine Gesteinskörnungen mit Korngrößen bis zu 2 mm.
ANMERKUNG 1 Bei groben Gesteinskörnungen zwischen 4 mm und 20 mm hängt der Fließkoeffizient mit dem Prozent-satz an gebrochenen Körnern einer Gesteinskörnung zusammen und kann deshalb als alternatives Verfahren zu dem in EN 933-5 beschriebenen Verfahren angewendet werden. Das Ergebnis wird auch durch die Form und die Oberflächen-beschaffenheit beeinflusst.
ANMERKUNG 2 Erfahrungen mit diesem Prüfverfahren sind allgemein auf natürliche Gesteinskörnungen begrenzt.

Essais pour déterminer les caractéristiques géométriques des granulats - Partie 6: Evaluation des caractéristiques de surface - Coefficient d'écoulement des granulats

La présente Norme européenne décrit la méthode de référence servant aux essais de type initiaux et, en cas de litige, pour la détermination du coefficient d’écoulement des gravillons et des sables. Pour les besoins du contrôle de la production en usine en particulier, d’autres méthodes peuvent être utilisées sous réserve qu’une corrélation appropriée avec la méthode de référence ait été établie. Des exemples de méthodes d’essais avancés se trouvent éventuellement dans la Bibliographie.
La présente Norme européenne s’applique aux gravillons de classe granulaire comprise entre 4 mm et 20 mm et des sables de classe granulaire inférieure ou égale à 2 mm.
NOTE 1   Pour les gravillons compris entre 4 mm et 20 mm, le coefficient d’écoulement est lié au pourcentage de surfaces cassées de granulat et peut donc être utilisé pour remplacer la méthode spécifiée dans l’EN 933-5. Les caractéristiques de forme et de texture de surface influent également sur le résultat.
NOTE 2   L'application de cette norme a généralement été limitée aux granulats naturels.

Preskusi geometričnih lastnosti agregatov - 6. del: Ocenjevanje značilnosti površine - Količnik sipkosti agregatov

Standard EN 933-6 določa referenčno metodo, ki se uporablja za tipsko preskušanje in v primeru spora za določevanje koeficienta pretoka grobih in finih agregatov. Za druge namene, zlasti za nadzor proizvodnje v obratu, se lahko uporabijo druge metode, če obstaja primerna delovna povezava z referenčno metodo. Primeri naprednih preskusnih metod so opisani v bibliografiji. Ta evropski standard se uporablja za grobe agregate v velikosti od 4 mm do 20 mm in za fine agregate v velikosti do 2 mm.

1 Scope
This European Standard describes the reference method used for type testing, and in case of dispute,
for determining the flow coefficient of coarse and fine aggregates. For other purposes, in particular
factory production control, other methods may be used provided that an appropriate working relationship
with the reference method has been established. Examples of advanced test methods can be found in
the Bibliography.
This European Standard applies to coarse aggregate of sizes between 4 mm and 20 mm and to fine
aggregate of size up to 2 mm.
NOTE 1 For coarse aggregates between 4 mm and 20 mm, the flow coefficient is linked with the percentage
of crushed or broken surfaces of an aggregate and can therefore be used in association with the method
specified in EN 933-5. Shape and surface texture characteristics also influence the result.
NOTE 2 Experience of this test has been generally limited to natural aggregates.
2 Normative references
The following referenced documents are indispensable for the application of this document. For dated
references, only the edition cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced
document (including any amendments) applies.
EN 932-2, Tests for general properties of aggregates — Part 2: Methods for reducing laboratory samples.
EN 932-5, Tests for general properties of aggregates — Part 5: Common equipment and calibration.
EN 933-2, Tests for geometrical properties of aggregates — Part 2: Determination of particle size
distribution — Test sieves, nominal size of apertures.
EN 933-3, Tests for geometrical properties of aggregates — Part 3: Determination of particle shape —
Flakiness index.
EN 1097-6, Tests for mechanical and physical properties of aggregates — Part 6: Determination of
particle density and water absorption.
3 Terms and definitions
For the purposes of this European Standard the following terms and definitions apply.
3.1
aggregate size
designation of aggregate in terms of lower (d) and upper (D) sieve sizes expressed in terms as d/D
NOTE This designation accepts the presence of some particles which will be retained on the upper sieve
(oversize) and some which will pass the lower sieve (undersize).
3.2
constant mass
mass determined by successive weighings performed at least 1 h apart and not differing by more
than 0,1 %
NOTE In many cases constant mass can be achieved after a test portion has been dried for a pre-
determined period in a specified oven at (110 ± 5) °C. Test laboratories can determine the time required to
achieve constant mass for specific types and sizes of sample dependent upon the drying capacity of the oven
used.

against the LRPC reference coarse aggregate. In this case, the flow time E and the pre-dried particle density ρ
R p
of this alternative reference coarse aggregate should be used. In case of dispute, the LRPC reference coarse
aggregate should be used.
5.2 Fine aggregate material
A 0,063/2 mm reference aggregate with a flow time of (32 ± 2) s.
In the various calculations, the flow time E of this reference fine aggregate shall be taken as equal
RS
3
to 32 s and its pre-dried particle density shall be taken as equal to 2,70 Mg/m .
NOTE 1 At present the only recognized source of reference aggregate is the Laboratoire Régional des Ponts
et Chaussées (LRPC), Rouen, BP 245, 76121 Le Grand-Quevilly, France. {Telephone: + (33) 2 35 68 81 00 -
Fax: + (33) 2 35 68 88 60 – e-mail: lrpc-rouen.cete-nc@developpement-durable.gouv.fr }
NOTE 2 An alternative source of reference fine aggregate can be used provided that the flow coefficient of
that aggregate is established in a controlled experiment carried out in at least ten laboratories, by cross testing
against the LRPC reference fine aggregate. In this case, the flow time E and the pre-dried particle density ρ of
RS p
this alternative reference fine aggregate should be used. In case of dispute, the LRPC reference fine aggregate
should be used.
