Standard Method of Test for Specific Gravity and Absorption of Fine Aggregate
|Publication Date:||1 January 2013|
This method covers the determination of bulk and apparent specific gravity, 23/23°C (73.4/73.4°F), and absorption of fine aggregate.
This method determines (after 15-19 h of soaking in water) the bulk specific gravity and the apparent specific gravity, the bulk specific gravity on the basis of mass of saturated surface-dry (SSD) aggregate, and the absorption.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
