AGGREGATE IMPACT VALUE AND AGGREGATE CRUSHING VALUE TESTS ON SEVEN LITHOLOGIES FROM THE CARBONIFEROUS LIMESTONE OF THE BRISTOL/MENDIP AREA, ENGLAND . PROCEEDINGS OF THE FIFTH INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS. INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF ENGINEERING GEOLOGY, 20-25 OCTOBER 1986

Aggregate determination tests, including aggregate impact and aggregate crushing, have been carried out on samples from the Carboniferous Limestone of the Bristol/Mendip area, and the results plotted on a modified triangular diagram. It has been shown that for both aggregate impact and aggregate crushing results these triangular diagrams clearly demonstrate the behaviour of the aggregate under both impact and static loading. Logarithimc/arithmetic diagrams have been shown to give a clear correlation between the different types of aggregates, i.e. the different lithologies. The relationship between the aggregate impact value (AIV) and the aggregate crushing value (ACV) for different rock types of the Carboniferous Limestone of the Bristol Mendip region is discussed, together with their dependence on other measured properties such as uniaxial unconfined.(A) The French title of the paper is: "Essaies d'impacte et de concassage sur des aggregats de sept lithologies du calcaire carbonifere de la region de Bristol, Mendip en Angleterre".
