Plots of measured values versus controlled values provide means for xstm the values measured in the field for a specific soil. The inch-pound equivalents may be approximate. Stay on Page Continue to Compass.

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


Specific plots for a given soil generally are not applicable to other soils.

Correction Mathematics ; Quality Subject Areas: Sep 30 It is scientifically undesirable to combine the use of two separate axtm of inch-pound units within a single standard.

Other sources of errors exist with the nuclear standard test, ASTM d For specific Hazard statements, see Section.

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and astj practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. 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.

Freedom of unknown errors must be achieved by means of developing density calibration curve s.

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

In this system the pound lbf represents a unit of force weight. Link to D922 This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. This implicitly combines two separate systems of units; that is, the absolute system and the gravitational system.


Thus, measured values of in-place density are found to be different from the controlled values.

International Road Federation Publisher: All aztm measuring methods investigated require such correction plots. Find a library where document is available. Cohesionless soils, for example, are sensitive to volume change during shear. Addition of moisture in such soils provides some cohesion that alters the error involved in a density measurement. For quality control purposes in road construction, in-place density measurements at shallow depths must be as free of error as possible.
