self consolidation of crushed stone

How much volume is lost after compacting 3/4" crushed stone?

The loose drop weight of a relatively uniform (all the rocks are similar size and shape) 3/4" stone will be about 80-90% depending on the stone (angularity and phi). Presuming that you are compacting to of some form of "proctor density", because you''re awesome at compacting and have a monster machine (and thin lifts), that''s 100/80=125%.

Crushed Stone and Gravel Driveways: Choosing the Right ...

Crushed Stone. Standard crushed stone is the kind of gravel that you are most likely to be familiar with, or envision in your mind when you first think of a crushed stone driveway. This type of material has been pulverized from limestone, trap rock, gneiss or granite, depending on the quarry in which it was harvested and manufactured.

Self Compacting Soil (#57 stone)

 · do not ever refer to crushed stone as self compacting because you are not doing anyone any favors. while it is usually easier to compact, #57 stone can easily lose 20-40% of it''s volume with a modest amount of compactive effort. you could EASILY lose 1" per foot of backfill over time as it settles under it''s weight (seen it with my own eyes on multiple occassions)

Aggregates for Concrete

Crushed stone is produced by crushing quarry rock, boul-ders, cobbles, or large-size gravel. Crushed air-cooled blast-furnace slag is also used as fine or coarse aggregate. The aggregates are usually washed and graded at the pit or plant. Some variation in the type, quality, cleanli-ness, grading, moisture content, and other properties is expected.
