International Road Federation Publisher: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.

Thus, measured values of in-place density are found to be different from the controlled values. In this system the pound lbf represents a unit of force weight.

Active Risk Management

For quality control purposes in road construction, in-place density measurements at shallow depths must be as free of error as possible. Plots of measured values versus controlled values provide means for adjusting the values measured in the field for a specific soil.


It is the responsibility d29222 the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Other sources of errors exist with the nuclear standard test, ASTM d All standardized measuring methods investigated require such correction plots. Sep 30 These test methods have been written using the gravitational system of units when dealing with the inch-pound system. These test methods cover the determination of the total or wet density of soil and soil-rock mixtures by the attenuation of gamma radiation where the source and detector s remain on the surface D2922 Method or the source or detector is placed at a known depth up to mm 12 in.

New Soil and Rock Test Method Combines Elements from Soil Density and Water Content Standards

Addition of moisture d2292 such soils provides some cohesion that alters the error involved in a density measurement. For specific Hazard statements, see Section. Freedom of unknown errors must be achieved by means of developing density calibration curve s. This implicitly combines two separate systems of units; that is, the absolute system and the gravitational system.


Specific plots for a given soil generally are not applicable to other soils. The inch-pound equivalents may be approximate.

Cohesionless soils, asym example, are sensitive to volume change during shear. Correction Mathematics ; Quality Subject Areas: The paper discusses 1 the degree of errors in the investigated standardized in-place density measurements by comparing with known or controlled densities, and 2 the development of calibration curves for a selected soil.
