These test methods have been written using the gravitational system of units when dealing with the inch-pound system.

For quality control purposes in road construction, in-place density measurements at wstm depths must be as free of error as possible. For specific Hazard statements, see Section. Freedom of unknown errors must be achieved by means of developing density calibration curve s.

Active Risk Management

This standard does not purport to address all of the d2922 concerns, if any, associated with its use. Plots of measured values versus controlled values provide means for adjusting the values measured in the field for a specific soil.


Sep 30 D2292 implicitly combines two separate systems of units; that is, the absolute system and the gravitational 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 s remain on the surface Backscatter Method or the source or detector is placed at a known depth up to mm 12 in.

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

Find a library where document is available. Correction Mathematics ; Quality Subject Areas: It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Cohesionless soils, for example, are sensitive to volume change during shear. It is scientifically undesirable to d29922 the use of two separate sets of inch-pound units within a single standard. All standardized measuring methods investigated require such correction plots. Thus, measured values of in-place density are found to be different from the controlled values.

Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Other sources of errors exist with the nuclear standard test, ASTM d The inch-pound equivalents may be approximate.

Addition of moisture in such soils provides some cohesion that alters the error involved in a density measurement. Stay on Page Continue to Compass. Specific plots for a given soil generally are not applicable to other soils.

International Road Federation Publisher: 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.

In this system the ast lbf represents a unit of force weight.
