"This thesis involves a comparative analysis between well-established physically performed measurements for coarse aggregate and an image-based system. A thorough literature review was conducted, focusing on the importance of aggregate shape and how it is measured. In addition, state of the art in image-based aggregate measurement was reviewed along with the impacts and difficulties of an image-based methodology. Physical testing, consisting of Uncompacted Void Content, Index of Particle Shape and Texture (Compacted Voids), and Percent of Fractured Particles (fractured face or crush counts), was performed on aggregate control samples prior to testing on bulk aggregate samples. All aggregate samples were then tested with the WipShape imaging system to obtain Minimum Average Curve Radius measurement data. Finally, the results of physical testing and Minimum Average Curve Radius measurements were analyzed to determine if correlations exist between the different methods"--Introduction, page 2-3.
