Coarse Aggregate Angularity (CAA) (18)

Welcome to the Coarse Aggregate Angularity course. This course describes the coarse aggregate angularity (CAA) test, a method of determining the angularity of coarse aggregate, which is important in determining hot mix asphalt mixture susceptibility to deformation under load (rutting). This includes a discussion on the origins of this test, the alternate uncompacted void content test, a description of the current visual test method, and an examination of typical results.
