Standard Method of Test for Specific Gravity and Absorption of Fine Aggregate
|Publication Date:||1 January 2000|
This method covers the determination of bulk and apparent specific gravity, 23/23ºC (73.4/73.4ºF), and absorption of fine aggregate.
This method determines (after 15 hours in water) the bulk specific gravity and the apparent specific gravity as defined in M 132, the bulk specific gravity on the basis of mass of saturated surface-dry aggregate, and the absorption as defined in M 132.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
