    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Provides a basis for specifying requirements for aggregates for use in concrete. This Standard is for use in conjunction with a works specification, and it is expected that requirements may be varied on the basis of local experience. The requirements relate to quality of rock, grading, durability and other properties of aggregates including lightweight aggregates.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard provides a basis for specifying requirements for aggregates intended for use in the production of concrete, including precast products. The requirements and alternatives relate to quality of rock and the properties of aggregates including lightweight aggregates, and refer to the relevant test methods in AS 1141, AS 1012 and AS 4489.
