New Soil and Rock Test Method Combines Elements from Soil Density and Water Content Standards

Other sources of errors exist with the nuclear standard test, ASTM d This implicitly combines two separate systems of units; that is, astn absolute system and the gravitational system. Freedom of unknown errors must be achieved by means of developing density calibration curve s. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish x2922 safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.


Addition of moisture in such soils provides some cohesion that alters the error involved in a density measurement.

All standardized measuring methods investigated require such correction plots. Stay on Page Continue to Compass. Sep 30 The inch-pound equivalents may be approximate.

Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Cohesionless soils, for example, are sensitive to volume change during shear.

The paper discusses 1 the degree of errors in the investigated standardized in-place density measurements by comparing with known or controlled densities, and 2 the development of calibration curves for a selected soil. It is scientifically undesirable to combine the use of two separate sets of inch-pound units within a single standard. Plots of measured values versus controlled values provide means for adjusting the values measured in the field for a specific soil.

For quality control purposes in road construction, in-place density measurements at shallow depths must be as free of error as possible. International Road Federation Publisher: For specific Hazard statements, see Section.


These test methods have been written using the gravitational system of units when dealing with the inch-pound system. These test methods cover the determination of the total or wet density of soil and soil-rock mixtures by the attenuation of gamma radiation where the source and detector asfm remain on the surface Backscatter Method or the source or detector is placed at a known depth up to mm 12 in.

In this system the pound lbf represents a unit of force weight. Thus, measured values of in-place density are found to be different from the controlled values. Specific plots for a given soil generally are not applicable to other soils.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. Correction Mathematics ; Quality Subject Areas:
