Bulk Density Test Apparatus

Bulk Density, Voids and Bulking

The angularity or absence of rounding of the particle of an aggregate is a property which is of importance because it affects the ease of handling of a mixture of aggregate and binder, for example, the workability of concrete, or the stability of mixtures that depends on the interlocking of the particles.

The bulk density and voides in between aggregates can be ascertained using the following equipment.
