Aggregates for unbound and hydraulically bound materials for use in civil engineering work and road construction

Amendment to comply with CPR

Gesteinskörnungen für ungebundene und hydraulisch gebundene Gemische für den Ingenieur- und Straßenbau

Diese Europäische Norm legt die Eigenschaften von Gesteinskörnungen und Füllern fest, die durch Aufbereitung natürlicher, industriell hergestellter oder rezyklierter Stoffe und von Gemischen dieser Stoffe für ungebundene und hydraulisch gebundene Gemische für den Ingenieur- und Straßenbau gewonnen werden.
Sie gilt für Gesteinskörnungen mit einer Trockenrohdichte größer als 2,00 Mg/m3. Die Norm behandelt ebenfalls rezyklierte Gesteinskörnungen und industriell hergestellte Gesteinskörnungen mit einer Dichte größer als 1,50 Mg/m3, wobei die entsprechenden Vorbehalte gelten (siehe Anhang A). Die Bewertung der Dichte rezyklierter Gesteinskörnungen erfolgt typischerweise an groben Fraktionen.
ANMERKUNG 1   Zu Eigenschaften von leichten Gesteinskörnungen siehe EN 13055.
Der Einsatz von Gesteinskörnungen als Boden wird in dieser Norm nicht behandelt.
ANMERKUNG 2   Wegen der großen Unterschiede in den geologischen und petrologischen Gegebenheiten in Europa, können genaue Definitionen zu Boden in Dokumenten gefunden werden, die sich mit ihrer Verwendung am jeweiligen Einsatzort befassen.
Anhang A (normativ) enthält eine Liste von betrachteten Ausgangsstoffen, die in den Anwendungsbereich der Norm fallen.
Festlegungen hinsichtlich der Bewertung und Überprüfung der Leistungsbeständigkeit (AVCP) von Gesteinskörnungen nach dieser Norm sind in EN 16236 zu finden.
Gesteinskörnungen für die Verwendung im Bauwesen müssen alle Anforderungen der einschlägigen Europäischen Normen zu Gesteinskörnungen erfüllen. Diese Normen legen allgemeine und besondere Anforderungen an natürliche Gesteinskörnungen, industriell hergestellte und rezyklierte Gesteins-körnungen, wie beispielsweise hinsichtlich der Stabilität bestimmter Arten von Basalt, des Ausdehnungsverhaltens bestimmter Schlacken und der Zusammensetzung rezyklierter Gesteinskörnungen, fest.
ANMERKUNG 3   Da Anforderungen an ungebundene Gemische für den Straßenbau in EN 13285 festgelegt werden, werden sie in dieser Norm nicht im Einzelnen behandelt. EN 13285 bezieht sich jedoch auf die allgemeinen Festlegungen für Gesteinskörnungen nach EN 13242.

Granulats pour matériaux traités aux liants hydrauliques et matériaux non traités utilisés pour les travaux de génie civil et pour la construction des chaussées

La présente Norme européenne spécifie les caractéristiques des granulats, y compris celles des fillers, élaborés à partir de matériaux naturels, artificiels ou recyclés et des mélanges de ces granulats destinés à être utilisés dans la fabrication de matériaux traités aux liants hydrauliques et matériaux non traités utilisés pour les travaux de génie civil et pour la construction des chaussées.
Elle s'applique aux granulats dont la masse volumique réelle des particules séchées à l’étuve est supérieure à 2,00 Mg/m3. Elle s'applique également aux granulats recyclés et artificiels dont la masse volumique réelle est supérieure à 1,50 Mg/m3, avec les mises en garde appropriées (voir Annexe A). L’évaluation de la densité des granulats recyclés est typiquement effectuée sur les gravillons.
NOTE 1   Les exigences des granulats légers sont spécifiées dans l’EN 13055.
L’usage des granulats en tant que sol n’est pas couvert par la présente norme.
NOTE 2   En raison de l’importante variabilité des conditions géologiques et pédologiques en Europe, la définition précise du sol peut être trouvée dans les documents relatifs à l’application sur le lieu d’utilisation.
Une liste des origines des matériaux qui ont été prises en considération et relèvent du domaine d'application de la présente norme est donnée en Annexe A (normative).
Les exigences relatives à l’Evaluation et la Vérification de la Constance des Performances (EVCP) des granulats de cette norme européenne sont spécifiées dans le FprEN 16236.
Les granulats utilisés dans la construction doivent respecter toutes les exigences des Normes européennes concernées pour les granulats. Ces dernières contiennent les exigences générales et particulières relatives aux granulats naturels, artificiels et recyclés, et traitent par exemple de la stabilité de certains basaltes, de l'expansion de certains laitiers et de la composition des granulats recyclés.
NOTE 3   Les exigences pour les mélanges non traités pour la construction de chaussées sont spécifiées dans l’EN 13285 et ne sont donc pas couvertes par la présente norme. L’EN 13285 fait, cependant, référence aux exigences générales de l’EN 13242 pour les granulats.

Foreword

This document (prEN 13242:2015) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 154 “Aggregates”,

the secretariat of which is held by BSI.
This document is currently submitted to CEN Enquiry
This document supersedes EN 13242:2002+A1:2007.

This European Standard has been prepared under a mandate given to CEN by the European Commission

and the European Free Trade Association, and supports essential requirements of Construction Products

Regulation (EU) No. 305/2011.

For relationship with EU Regulation(s), see informative Annex ZA, which is an integral part of this document.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of patent

rights. CEN shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

The most significant technical changes compared to the previous edition include:

a) Harmonisation of vocabulary and Annex ZA to be consistent with Construction Products Regulation;

b) Unification of categories which are common across the four main aggregate standards: EN 12620,

EN 13043, EN 13139 and EN 13242;

c) Description of assessment and verification of conformity of performance of aggregates (AVCP) - type

testing and factory production control in a separate new standard EN 16236;

d) Implementing general sentences on dangerous substances and adding a new normative Annex A dealing

with all source materials considered;

e) Unification of definitions which are common across the four main aggregate standards: EN 12620,

EN 13043, EN 13139 and EN 13242, i. e. for coarse, fine, all-in aggregates and natural graded 0/8

aggregates;
f) Adding categories for the sand equivalent value for fines quality;
g) Adding categories for the methylene blue value for fines quality;

h) Adding characteristics for maximum Micro-Deval, angularity and water suction height.

In this document the wordings ‘property’ and ‘characteristic’ have the same meaning.

Requirements for assessment and verification of constancy of performance are given in prEN 16236.

Requirements for other end uses of aggregates are specified in the following European Standards:

— EN 12620, Aggregates for concrete;

— EN 13043, Aggregates for bituminous mixtures and surface treatments for roads, airfields and other

trafficked areas;
— EN 13055, Lightweight aggregates;

1 Scope

This European Standard specifies the properties of aggregates and filler aggregates obtained by processing

natural, manufactured or recycled materials and mixtures of these aggregates for use in hydraulically bound

and unbound materials for civil engineering works and road constructions.

It covers aggregates having an oven dried particle density greater than 2,00 Mg/m . It also covers recycled

coarse and all-in aggregates with particle densities greater than 1,50 Mg/m with appropriate caveats and

recycled fine aggregate with appropriate caveats (see Annex A).
NOTE 1 Requirements for lightweight aggregates are specified in EN 13055.
Use of aggregates as soil is not covered by the present standard.

NOTE 2 Due to huge variation of geological and pedological conditions in Europe, precise definition of soil can be

found in the documents related to the application in the place of use.

A list of the source materials that have been considered and indicating those which are within the scope of this

standard is given in Annex A (normative).

Requirements for the Assessment and Verification of the Constancy of Performance (AVCP) of aggregates to

this European Standard are given in prEN 16236.

Aggregates used in construction shall conform to all the requirements of the relevant European Standards for

aggregates. These standards include comprehensive and specific requirements for natural aggregates, iron

and steel making slag and recycled aggregates, dealing with, for example, the stability of certain basalts, the

expansion of certain slags and the constituents of recycled aggregates.

NOTE 3 Requirements for unbound mixtures for road constructions are specified in EN 13285 and are not therefore

covered in this standard. EN 13285 does however call up the general requirements of EN 13242 for the aggregates.

4 General requirements

The tables in this standard include categories which are common across the four main aggregates standard:

EN 12620, EN 13043, EN 13139 and EN 13242. Categories, NOTES, comments etc., which are grey shaded,

are not used for bound and unbound materials for civil engineering works and road constructions.

NOTE: Guidance on selection of appropriate categories for specific applications can be found in provisions in the

place of use of the aggregate.

Where conformity with a category is based on a value of a property being less than or equal to a given value,

conformity with a more severe category (lower value) automatically confers conformity with all less severe

categories (higher values). Similarly for categories based on the value of a property being greater than or

equal to a given value, conformity with a more severe (higher value) automatically confers conformity with all

less severe categories (lower values).

When the value of a property is required but not defined by specified limits the value should be declared as an

XX category, e.g., a value of say 55 for the flakiness index corresponds to FI 55 (Declared

Declared Declared
category).
When a property is not required, a “No requirement” category may be used.
5 Geometrical requirements
5.1 General

The necessity for testing and declaring all properties specified in Clause 5 shall be limited according to the

particular application at end use or origin of the aggregate. When required, the tests specified in Clause 5

shall be carried out to determine appropriate geometrical properties.
5.2 Aggregate sizes

All aggregates shall be described in terms of aggregate sizes using the designations d/D, and shall comply

with the grading requirements specified in 5.3, except for aggregates added as fillers which shall be specified

as filler aggregate.

Aggregate sizes shall be described by the pair of sieve sizes in millimetres selected from the basic set or the

basic set plus set 1 or the basic set plus set 2 in Table 1 with d as the lower limit designation and D as the

upper limit designation sieve between which most of the particle size distribution lies (e.g. 0/4 mm, 0/2 mm,

2/4 mm etc.).
A combination of sizes from set 1 and set 2 is not permissible.
Aggregate sizes shall have D/d not less than 1,4.

5.3 Grading
5.3.1 General

The grading of the aggregate, when determined in accordance with EN 933-1, shall conform to the

requirements of 5.3.2 to 5.3.5 as appropriate to its aggregate size d/D.

Aggregates may comprise single sizes, all-in aggregates or combinations of two or more than two sizes.

Aggregates supplied as a mixture of different sizes or types should be uniformly blended. When aggregates of

significantly different density are blended, caution is necessary to avoid segregation.

Size designations and grading categories are essentially categories of convenience a
