AS 1141 Methods for sampling and testing aggregates

  • AS 1141.30.1-2009 Coarse aggregate quality by visual comparison

  • This Standard sets out the method for determining a quality classification of coarse aggregate by visual comparison with pre-prepared reference specimens. The method is used to determine the proportion of particles in a sample with different quality characteristics which can be distinguished by visual characteristics. In some sources, it may be difficult to establish a rock quality classification based on visual comparison alone. In such cases the method is inappropriate.
