|Publication Date:||10 May 1996|
|ICS Code (Earthworks. Excavations. Foundation construction. Underground works):||93.020|
1.1 These methods cover the determination of the relationship between the water content and the density of soil-cement mixtures when compacted before cement hydration as prescribed.
1.2 A 1/30-ft (944-cm ) mold and a 5.5-lb (2.49-kg) rammer dropped from a height of 12 in. (304.8 kg) are used and two methods, depending on soil gradation, are covered, as follows:
Sections Method A, using soil material passing a No. 4 (4.75-mm) sieve. This method shall be used when 100% of the soil sample passes the No. 4 (4.75-mm) sieve 5 Method B, using soil material passing a 3/4-in. (19.0-mm) sieve. This method shall be used when part of the soil sample is retained on the No. 4 (4.75-mm) sieve 6
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI units given in parentheses are for information only.
1.4 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.
