  • Primary considerations in the selection of materials for coarse aggregate are those pertaining to freeze-thaw durability and the development of D-cracking in highway and airfield pavements. Two aspects of the problem are of particular importance: moisture movements and critical saturation of the aggregate, and the response of the aggregate to cyclic freezing and thawing in concrete. Laboratory studies of coarse aggregates have indicated that nondurable materials are generally of sedimentary… CONTINUE READING
