Abstract

Evaluation of data for three engineering variable--absorption, bulk specific gravity, and freeze-thaw durability (350 cycles)--was made for quarries in carbonate rocks in Oklahoma that supply aggregate. It was found that lower Palrozoic carbonate rocks (Cambrian through Devonian) are likely to make a better quality aggregate than upper Paleozoic (Mississippian to Permian) carbonate rocks. In addition, freeze-thaw durability can be forecast from absorption and is exemplary for lower Paleozoic carbonate rocks.
