AGGREGATE CRUSHING VALUE 1.Objective The aggregate crushing value gives a relative measure of the resistance of an aggregate to crushing under a gradually applied compressive load. With aggregate of aggregate crushing value 30 or higher, the result may be anomalous, and in such cases the ten percent fines value should be determined instead. Dec 19, 2019 The aggregate crushing value provides a relative measure of resistance to crushing under a gradually applied compressive load. For achieving a high quality of pavement, aggregate of higher crushing strength i.e. low crushing value should be preferred. Lower crushing value means higher strength as it indicates a lower crushed fraction under load.
