EFFECTS OF DIFFERENT METHODS OF STOCKPILING AGGREGATES INTERIM REPORT

THE EFFECTS OF DIFFERENT METHODS OF CONSTRUCTING AND RECLAIMING AGGREGATE STOCKPILES WERE MEASURED. ELEVEN FULL- SCALE STOCKPILES WERE CONSTRUCTED AND RECLAIMED BY METHODS COMMONLY USED BY THE INDUSTRY. THE OVERALL VARIANCE OF THE GRADATION OF THE AGGREGATE IN THE OUTPUT OF THESE STOCKPILES WAS MEASURED IN TERMS OF A SINGLE NUMBER RELATED TO THE SURFACE AREA AND VOIDAGE OF THE AGGREGATE AND EXPRESSES THE RELATIVE COARSENESS OF AN AGGREGATE GRADATION, AND THE PERCENTAGES PASSING THE STANDARD SIEVES. A SEGREGATION INDEX WAS OBTAINED BY DIVIDING THE OVERALL VARIANCE BY THE WITHIN-BATCH VARIANCE. IN GENERAL, IT IS REPORTED THAT SEGREGATION WAS MINIMIZED WHEN THE STOCKPILES WERE FORMED BY SPREADING AGGREGATES IN THIN LAYERS AND RECLAIMING THEM WITH A FRONT-END LOADER.
