It includes tests applicable in the investigation of a proposed new quarry or pit for aggregate, as well as to products of an established source of supply. It gives definitions and details of sampling, requirements, bulk density, unit mass, water absorption, stability, soundness, material finer than 75 microns, deleterious materials, physical properties, particle shape, grading, description, tests and statement of compliance. Appendices gives (1) terminology and petrological classification, and (2) a simplified group classification for aggregates. /TRRL/
