Özet

Compared to the indirect tests, the determination of the Los Angeles abrasion loss is time consuming and expensive, and requires a large amount of samples. For this reason, the prediction of Los Angeles abrasion loss from some indirect tests is useful for preliminary studies. In this study, Los Angeles abrasion, noise level (NL) measurement, density, and porosity tests were carried out on 27 different rock types such as igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary. The test results were evaluated using the simple and multiple regression analysis. A good relation was found between the Los Angeles abrasion loss and the NL. In order to check the possibility of obtaining more significant relations, multiple regression analysis was performed by including density and porosity values. However, the regression analysis showed that the correlation coefficients of the multiple regression equations were slightly higher than that of the simple regression equation. Since the simple regression equation is practical and statistically significant, it is suggested for estimation purpose. In conclusion, it can be said that Los Angeles abrasion loss of aggregates can be reliably estimated from NL measurement.
