Abstaract: A colossal quantity of aggregates derived from rocks and natural gravel are extensively used in the construction of infrastructures. The engineering properties of these aggregates determine their in-service performance. Jutana Formation, Sakeasar Limestone and gravels deposited by streams in Jabbi-Warchha and Katha Saghral area are crushed for use in ordinary Portland cement and asphalt concrete, unbound and bound pavements, railway ballast and riprap. Present study evaluates…
