|ICS Code (Road construction materials):||93.080.20|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of bulk specific gravity of specimens of Parafilm-coated, compacted bituminous mixtures as defined in Terminology E 12.
1.2 This method should be used with samples that contain open or interconnecting voids or absorb more than 2% of water by volume, or both, as determined by Section 8.
1.3 The bulk specific gravity of the compacted bituminous mixtures may be used in calculating the unit weight of the mixture.
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.
