  • Coarse Aggregate: Definition Density Video with

    Coarse aggregate absorption is the moisture content, or amount of water, in the coarse aggregate when the aggregate is fully saturated with a dry surface. This indicates the potential amount of water aggregate particles can absorb when used in construction or incorporated into mixtures and density measurements, and mix designs are adjusted based on this absorption capacity.
