Thus, measured values of in-place density are found to be different from the controlled values. Cohesionless soils, for example, are sensitive to volume change during shear.
For quality control purposes in road construction, d29222 density measurements at shallow depths must be as free of error as possible. 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. Plots of measured values versus controlled values provide means for adjusting the values measured in the field for a specific soil.
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.
International Road Federation Publisher: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, d222 any, associated with its use. The inch-pound equivalents may be approximate.
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 awtm. Other sources of errors exist with the nuclear standard test, ASTM d Stay on Page Continue to Compass.
New Soil and Rock Test Method Combines Elements from Soil Density and Water Content Standards
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.
All standardized measuring methods investigated require such correction plots. Correction Mathematics ; Quality Subject Areas: Find a library where document is available.
Active Risk Management
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. Specific plots for a given soil generally ast, not applicable to other soils.
This implicitly combines two separate systems of units; that is, the absolute system and the gravitational system. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. In this system the pound lbf represents a unit of force weight. Sep 30 It is scientifically undesirable to combine the use of two separate sets of inch-pound units within a single standard.
