Standard Test Method for Specific Gravity and Absorption of Fine Aggregate
|Publication Date:||10 November 1997|
|ICS Code (Concrete and concrete products):||91.100.30|
1.1 This test method covers the determination of bulk and apparent specific gravity, 23/23°C (73.4/73.4°F), and absorption of fine aggregate.
1.2 This test method determines (after 24 h in water) the bulk specific gravity and the apparent specific gravity as defined in Terminology E 12, the bulk specific gravity on the basis of weight of saturated surface-dry aggregate, and the absorption as defined in Definitions C 125.
NOTE 1--The subcommittee is considering revising Test Methods C 127 and C 128 to use the term "density" instead of "specific gravity" for coarse and fine aggregate, respectively.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
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.
