ASTM C136/C136M – Sieve Analysis of Aggregates

Standard Test Method for
Sieve Analysis of Fine and Coarse Aggregates1
This standard is issued under the fixed designation C 136; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of
original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. A
superscript epsilon (e) indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.
This standard has been approved for use by agencies of the Department of Defense.
1. Scope*
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the particle
size distribution of fine and coarse aggregates by sieving.
1.2 Some specifications for aggregates which reference this
method contain grading requirements including both coarse
and fine fractions. Instructions are included for sieve analysis
of such aggregates.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the
standard. The values in parentheses are provided for informa-
tion purposes only. Specification E 11 designates the size of
sieve frames with inch units as standard, but in this test method
the frame size is designated in SI units exactly equivalent to the
inch units.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the
safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the
responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appro-
priate safety and health practices and determine the applica-
bility of regulatory limitations prior to use.
