Granular material consisting of rounded, water-worn rock fragments 2 mm to 75 mm in diameter, usually found intermixed with sand. Or a mix of stone, sand and fine sized particles used as sub-base, base or surfacing on a gravel road. In some regions, it may be called aggregate.

This sand and gravel mix provides excellent drainage when used as a base material for interlocking stone. It compacts to 3/4's of the original depth once it is tamped.
What purpose is served by placing a granular base under an interior concrete slab? Why not just place concrete directly on the compacted subgrade? If the subgrade is uniform (no soft spots) and a vapor barrier is placed on it, you probably don't need an aggregate concrete base course. A base serves
Aggregates are used in granular base and subbase layers below the driving surface layer(s) in both asphalt concrete and Portland cement concrete pavement structures. The aggregate base layers serve a variety of purposes, including reducing the stress applied to the subgrade layer and providing

Granulation tissue is new connective tissue and microscopic blood vessels that form on the surfaces of a wound during the healing process. Granulation tissue typically grows from the base of a wound and is able to fill wounds of almost any size.
A. Granular material for use in sub-base courses shall be a naturally occurring gravel, blended as necessary with fine or coarse material and screened to produce the specified gradation.
Supplementary granular material for use in Class "A" and Class "B" granular base course shall be stockpiled separately and added uniformly to the pit material by means of a belt type conveyor immediately prior to entering the crusher.
In a pavement structure, the granular base and subbase are compacted aggregate layers between the asphalt concrete or the Portland cement concrete pavement layers and the underlying subgrade material.

Granular A. What is Granular A? Granular A is a compactible material consisting of a mix of sand and stone. When should I use Granular A? You should use Granular A for sub-base, such as under patios and walkways, for mixing concrete, and for topdressing driveways.
granular base and subbase. The certificate shall state that the . RCM . supplied contains sulphate concentrations less than or equal to 5000 µg/g. The sampling and testing frequency from the stockpile would commence with the first testing to be performed based on one test for every 1000 tonnes of production.

Manufactured Granular Base. All Lafarge's Manufactured (Recycled) Asphalt and/or Concrete Granular Base is crushed and graded through our Portable Crushing Plant at our Abbotsford, Coquitlam and Richmond Recycling and Aggregates Depots.
Working on and compacting granular soils such as sands and gravels are difficult tasks. Due to the composition of sand and gravel, water can enter or leave the voids in them with relative ease.
In highway engineering, subbase is the layer of aggregate material laid on the subgrade, on which the base course layer is located. It may be omitted when there will be only foot traffic on the pavement, but it is necessary for surfaces used by vehicles.
