In PCC, gradation helps determine durability, porosity, workability, cement and water requirements, strength, and shrinkage. Because of this, gradation is a primary concern in HMA and PCC mix design and thus most agencies specify allowable aggregate gradations for both. Maximum Aggregate Size

A gradation test is performed on a sample of aggregate in a laboratory. A typical sieve analysis involves a nested column of sieves with wire mesh cloth (screen). See the separate Mesh (scale) page for details of sieve sizing.. A representative weighed sample is poured into the top sieve which has the largest screen openings.
AND COARSE AGGREGATES AASHTO T 27 SCOPE The sieve analysis, commonly known as the gradation test, is a basic essential test for all aggregate technicians. The sieve analysis determines the gradation (the distribution of aggregate particles, by size, within a given sample) in order to determine compliance with design,

AASHTO #57 Stone Specs AASHTO #57 stone as defined by quarries, state agencies, etc. is an open-graded, self-compacting aggregate blend of size 5, 6, & 7 stone. This material cannot be 'compacted' in a true sense, but can be properly oriented with compaction equipment. This is particularly important when using #57 stone under Flexi-Pave surfaces.
GRADATION OF AGGREGATE FOR CONCRETE BLOCK . Although numerous papers have been written concerning the proper gradation for concrete mixes, they have generally dealt with plastic mixes, and very little published information is available on the subject dealing specifically with the "minus zero slump" mix as used in concrete block production.

Gradation: Recycled concrete material should be crushed and screened to produce aggregate that satisfies the AASHTO M6 (5) and M80 (6) gradation requirements for PCC. With appropriate adjustments, a plant can produce any desired gradation. Crushed fine aggregates (minus 4.75 mm (No.4 sieve)) are generally not used or are blended with natural sand.
