Tests for mechanical and physical properties of aggregates - Part 2: Methods for the determination of resistance to fragmentation
|Publication Date:||1 March 2010|
|ICS Code (Mineral materials and products):||91.100.15|
This European Standard describes the reference method, the Los Angeles test, used for type testing and in case of dispute (and an alternative method, the impact test) for determining the resistance to fragmentation of coarse aggregates and aggregates for railway ballast (Annex A). For other purposes, in particular factory production control, other methods may be used provided that an appropriate working relationship with the reference method has been established.
This European Standard applies to natural, manufactured or recycled aggregates used in building and civil engineering.
