Standard Test Method for Specific Gravity and Absorption of Rock for Erosion Control
|Publication Date:||10 November 1999|
|ICS Code (Soil quality and pedology in general):||13.080.01|
This test method covers the determination of specific gravity and absorption of rock for erosion control, commonly referred to as riprap or armor stone. The specific gravity may be expressed as bulk specific gravity or apparent specific gravity. Bulk specific gravity and absorption are based on a 24-h soaking time for the rock specimens tested.
The use of reclaimed concrete and other materials is beyond the scope of this test method.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
