Coarse Aggregate Angularity – Pavement Interactive

The CAA test estimates coarse aggregate angularity by visually inspecting a small sample of coarse aggregate and separating the sample into those pieces with a fractured face and those without (Figure 2). If more than one fractured face is specified, the same test can be done using two fractured faces as the decision criteria.
