Aggregate Sizing Explained - Chaney Enterprises

There are seven standard sieves for fine aggregates ranging from No. 100 to 3/8" and 13 standard sieves for coarse aggregate ranging from No. 16 to 4". For example coarse aggregate has a standard grading requirement for each different size from #1 to #8.

Sieve Sizes: U.S. and Metric Sizes - Gilson Co.

Sieve mesh sizes are based on dimensions of the mesh size opening, or on the number of openings per linear inch. The two major standards governing test sieves and appropriate sizes are ASTM E11 and ISO 565/3310-1, both of which specify parameters for aperture dimensions, mesh size, and statistical variations. Opening sizes and mesh diameters for test sieves are often duplicated between these

Grading (earthworks) - Wikipedia

Grading in civil engineering and landscape architectural construction is the work of ensuring a level base, or one with a specified slope, for a construction work such as a foundation, the base course for a road or a railway, or landscape and garden improvements, or surface drainage. The earthworks created for such a purpose are often called the sub-grade or finished contouring (see diagram).

To complicate matters more, for fine and all-in aggregate, where D <= 8mm, the standard requires producers to declare a "typical grading", which, where required, must be within a given Tolerance Category designated according to a set ± value on the D/2 sieve, i.e., G TC 10, G TC 20 or G TC NR (no requirement). A typical quarry dust could be designated 0/4 G A 85 G TC 20.

What is Grading of Aggregates and Grading Limits?

Grading of aggregates are determination of particle size distribution of aggregates. Grading of aggregates is an important factor for concrete mix design. These affect the concrete strength as well as durability. Proper grading is important for concrete construction. Following tables provides details for grading limits of aggregates.

Basic characteristics of soils Size range of grains. Aids to size identification; The range of particle sizes encountered in soil is very large: from boulderswith a controlling dimension of over 200mm down to clayparticles less than 0.002mm (2mm). Some clays contain particles less than 1 mmin size which behave as colloids, i.e. do not settle in water due solely to gravity.
