ASTM - D2041/D2041M
Standard Test Method for Theoretical Maximum Specific Gravity and Density of Asphalt Mixtures
|Publication Date:||1 June 2019|
|ICS Code (Binders. Sealing materials):||91.100.50|
This test method covers the determination of the theoretical maximum specific gravity and density of uncompacted asphalt mixtures at 25 °C [77 °F].
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.
Residual pressure measurements are shown in both the SI unit of kPa and the commonly used nonstandard equivalent unit of "mm of Hg."
Measurements of volume and mass are only given in SI units because they are the only units typically used in practice when performing this test method.
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.
