Los Angeles Abrasion Test



The Los Angeles (L.A.) abrasion test is a common test method used to indicate aggregate toughness and abrasion characteristics. The principle of Los Angeles abrasion test is to produce abrasive action by use of standard steel balls which when mixed with aggregates and rotated in a drum for specific number of revolutions also causes impact on aggregates. The percentage wear of the aggregates due to rubbing with steel balls is determined and is known as Los Angeles Abrasion Value

Our soil laboratory software “CiviLab” facilitates the processing of the Los Angeles Abrasion Test and reduces the time required, also CiviLab provides high quality reports and archives them properly

In Los Angeles Abrasion Test, you use CiviLab to:

  • Calculate the Los Angeles Abrasion value ;
  • Save and print results appropriately;
