Aggregates 101 Stockpile and Handling

breakdown of individual aggregate particles due to abrasion and attrition during stockpiling and handling” Can be detrimental to the final product due to the increased minus #200 material (fines) Increased fines cause performance problems in the final products

Segregation in Aggregate Base Stockpiles

Segregation of an aggregate product will likely occur where the ratio of the size of the largest particles to the size of the smallest exceeds 2:1. A ¾″ maximum base product exceeds this ratio and will readily segregate. Segregation occurs in the formation of a traditional conical stockpile.

Contending with stockpile segregation, product quality

Mar 19, 2020 Although placing product in a stockpile endangers its quality, stockpiling is a vital link in the aggregate production process. It is a storage method that ensures material availability. The rate of production often differs from the rate at which the product is required for a given application, and stockpiles help to absorb the difference.

an aggregate sample. The three methods examined were Lightweight Pieces in Aggregate in accordance with AASHTO T 113, NDR Visual Test, and The Determination of Clay Lumps, Shale, and Soft Particles in Coarse Aggregate and Crushed Rock, and of Clay Lumps in Fine Aggregate and Sand-Gravel Aggregate in accordance to Nebraska’s T 504.

Practices for Unbound Aggregate Pavement Layers

As the material moves down the side of the stockpile, larger particles tend to move down to the bottom (owing to higher momentum), whereas finer materials tend to settle into the side of the pile. Such spatial distribution of aggregate particles of different sizes at different portions of the stockpile results in pronounced segregation.
