ASTM WK41605

    Work Item: ASTM WK41605 - Revision of D2395 - 07ae1 Standard Test Methods for Specific Gravity of Wood and Wood-Based Materials

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D2395 - 07ae1

    Developed by Subcommittee: D07.01 | Committee D07 | Contact Staff Manager



    1. Rationale

    1. Introduce definitions of density along with calculation and conversion of values at different MC; 2. Introduce relationships between density and specific gravity; 3. Move conversions and discussions to Appendix; 4. Editorial improvements (e.g., in recognition of wood-based materials and use of mandatory language); 5. Revise Figures 1 and 2 to show an automatic balance; 6. Revise conversion equations for specific gravity in Appendix X1 to be consistent with Equation (2) and wood science literature (US and internationally); 7. Present the measurement of MC with moisture meter more consistently; 8. Update Commentary accordingly.
