Abstract: © 2019 Published by the Serbian Academic Center. This paper presents an analysis and the test results of certain physical properties of the rock materials excavated from quarries in Serbia. The four rock aggregates, considered in this analysis, are used for building the driveway constructions' layers on roads, streets, airports and base layers on railways. To that purpose, both the general and specific technical properties (petrographic, physical, mechanical and technological) of those rocks must be known to users. The four rocks, whose physical properties are analyzed, are the most important types of the building stones: limestone, dolomite marble, calcite-dolomite marble and andesite. Their physical properties tested included volumetric mass, specific mass (density), porosity and water absorption. The service life, reparation jobs and maintenance procedures of the construction machinery parts, which come into direct contact with building materials like rocks and stones, strongly depend on those stones' properties. The four tested rock materials belong into a group of the massive rocks with various porosities and tendency to absorb water.
