Standard Test Method for Bulk Specific Gravity and Density of Compacted Asphalt Mixtures Using Automatic Vacuum Sealing Method
|Publication Date:||15 August 2018|
|ICS Code (Waxes, bituminous materials and other petroleum products):||75.140|
This test method covers the determination of bulk specific gravity of compacted asphalt mixtures by the vacuum sealing method.
This method can be used for compacted cylindrical and cubical laboratory and field asphalt mixture specimens.
The bulk specific gravity of the compacted asphalt mixtures may be used in calculating the unit weight of the mixture.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in nonconformance with the standard.
The text of this standard references notes and footnotes which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of the standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
