· Based on North Dakota DOT's modification of AASHTO T 27. Produced in cooperation with the Upper Great Plains Transportation Institute at NDSU.
Aggregate gradation is directly related to optimum asphalt content. The finer the mix gradation, the larger the total surface area of the aggregate and the greater the amount
Gradation Charts. The charts below show typical gradations of various products based on required specifications from agencies and organizations such as state DOTs, AASHTO, etc.
Ensure the fine aggregate portion of the gradation does not exceed a liquid limit of 25.0 percent or a plasticity index of 4.0. The Engineer will test the freeze-thaw durability of crushed concrete
Where standard size of coarse aggregate designated by two or three digit numbers are specified, obtain the specified gradation by combining the appropriate single digit standard size aggregates by a suitable proportioning device which has a separate compartment for each coarse aggregate combined.

Concrete producers then use that material to make concrete, the properties of which are quite dependent on the aggregate gradation, both coarse and fine. This presents a conflict — if the aggregate gradation changes, then the concrete proportions may need to be adjusted.
