Standard Test Method for Density of Semi-Solid and Solid Bituminous Materials (Nickel Crucible Method)
|Publication Date:||10 January 2003|
|ICS Code (Binders. Sealing materials):||91.100.50|
|ICS Code (Road construction materials):||93.080.20|
significance And Use:
Values of density are used for converting volumes to units of mass, and for correcting measured volumes from the temperature of measurement to a standard temperature using Practice D 4311.
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the density of semi-solid and solid bituminous materials by weighing in air and in water.
Note 1-An alternate method for determining the density of semi-solid and solid bituminous materials is Test Method D 70. For materials which are too fluid for use of this method, use Test Method D 3142.
1.2 This standard does not purport to address 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.
