Section 14 This test is the large water filled ring for in-place density of rock fill and includes weighing up to 500 lbm of material or more removed from the test hole. The recently passed revision states that it is desirable to obtain in-place density and moisture contents to at least three significant digits and therefore all measurements should be taken to at least four significant digits.
