Mixture of Crushed- Stone Aggregate as Material For Substructure Layers

method of marking the indicator for material requires to conductit after four days of soaking, which simulates unfavourable conditions of water saturation. Unfortunately, the CBR test method is laborious and time consuming [ 22 ]. This article analyses the geotechnical and physical test results with particular consideration of CBR of mixtures of crushed aggregate assessed for their application in road construction as subgrade layer. An attempt was also made to find the correlation between CBR ratio and other physical properties. All aggregate tests were performed at

The Effects of Maximal Intensity Exercise on Cognitive Performance in Children

cognitive performance in children ( Davis et al., 2011 ; Hillman et al., 2014 ). Such programs typically involve daily moderate-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) of 20-60 minutes duration, sufficient to increase cardiorespiratory fitness in children. A meta-analysis of 44 studies found a positive, yet weak, correlation (a general effect size of d = 0.32) between PA and different measures of cognitive performance, such as IQ, academic achievements, math and verbal tests, and perceptual skill tests in children ( Sibley and Etnier, 2003 ). A more recent review of the

Effects of perinatal factors on body mass index and physical fitness of school-age children

physical development. Every April, qualified physical education teachers perform the measurements in all primary and secondary schools, following the official measurement protocol. The SLOfit test battery includes eight motor tests (arm-plate tapping, standing long jump, polygon course backwards, sit-ups, standing reach touch, bent arm hang, 60-meter run and 600-meter run), as well as measurements of child’s height, weight and triceps skinfold thickness. Measurements are always organized in school gyms between 08:00 and 14:00. Subjects are weighed barefoot in their
