AASHTO #57 Stone Specs - Capitol Flexi-Pave

AASHTO #57 stone as defined by quarries, state agencies, etc. is an open-graded, self-compacting aggregate blend of size 5, 6, & 7 stone. This material cannot be 'compacted' in a true sense, but can be properly oriented with compaction equipment. This is particularly important when using #57 stone under Flexi-Pave surfaces.

Sieve analysis - Wikipedia

A sieve analysis (or gradation test) is a practice or procedure used (commonly used in civil engineering) to assess the particle size distribution (also called gradation) of a granular material by allowing the material to pass through a series of sieves of progressively smaller mesh size and weighing the amount of material that is stopped by each sieve as a fraction of the whole mass.
