The inch-pound equivalents may be approximate.

Active Risk Management

Other sources of errors exist with the nuclear standard test, ASTM d This implicitly combines two separate systems of units; that is, the absolute system and the gravitational system. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.

Sep 30 Stay on Page Continue to Compass. Addition of moisture in such soils provides some cohesion that alters the error involved in a density measurement.


Freedom of unknown errors must be achieved by means of developing density calibration curve s. Correction Mathematics ; Quality Subject Areas: It is d29922 responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Thus, measured values of in-place density are found to be different from the controlled values.

Find a library where document is available. International Road Federation Publisher: Plots of measured values versus controlled values provide means for adjusting the values measured in the field for a specific soil.

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

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. Link to Active This link will always route to ashm current Active version of the standard.

For quality control purposes in road construction, in-place density measurements at shallow depths must be as free of error as possible. For specific Hazard statements, see Section. Specific plots for a given soil generally are not applicable to other soils.


All standardized measuring methods investigated require such correction plots.

Cohesionless soils, for example, are sensitive to volume change during shear. It is scientifically undesirable to combine the use of two separate sets of inch-pound units within a single standard. In this system the pound axtm represents a unit of force weight.

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.

These test methods have been written using the gravitational system of units when dealing d292 the inch-pound system.
