TOTAL MOISTURE CONTENT OF AGGREGATE BY

OF AGGREGATE BY DRYING AASHTO T 255 SCOPE The moisture content in aggregate is used to determine the binder content for HMA during production of the mixture in a plant. The procedure requires that a known amount of aggregate be obtained, the aggregate heated to remove the moisture, and the percentage of moisture determined.

Moisture Content - Penn State College of Engineering

The following four moisture states are defined: Oven-dry (OD): All moisture is removed from the aggregate by heating in an oven at 105 C to constant weight (overnight heating usually is sufficient). All pores are empty. Air-dry (AD): All moisture removed from surface, but internal pores partially full.

Moisture Content – Pavement Interactive

Since aggregates are porous (to some extent) they can absorb moisture. Generally this is not a concern for HMA because the aggregate is dried before HMA production. However, this is a concern for PCC because aggregate is generally not dried and therefore the aggregate moisture content will affect the water content (and thus the water-cement ratio also) of the

Oct 14, 2021  The critical moisture content is the average material moisture content at which the drying rate begins to decline. A prototype drying test should be conducted to determine the critical moisture content. 10.2 is reached when the rate of evaporation becomes the same as obtained by the wet-bulb evaporative process.

What is total moisture content?

The total moisture content of an aggregate sample is the sum of the absorbed moisture and the free surface moisture.The moisture content of the aggregate is defined at four states. When the aggregate has no moisture on the surface or the interior pores then the aggregate is in a dry (sometimes called oven-dry) state.

The moisture content (MC) of aggregate is given by: If the moisture content (MC) is positive, there is surface moisture. If the MC is negative, it has the potential for absorption. Therefore, the total moisture associated with an aggregate is: Stockpiled fine aggregate is often in a wet state with a surface moisture of 0 to 5%.

Mar 01, 1986  The total moisture measured in the test represents both the free moisture and the moisture that the aggregate absorbs. Only the free moisture becomes part of the mix water. The absorbed water, usually about 1 percent, remains within the aggregate. If the coarse aggregate is unusually porous, the absorption should be determined by a separate test.
