This test is used for determining the specific gravity of coarse particles of soil larger than the #4 sieve size material. This includes Gravels and Cobbles in the USCS system ASTM D2487. The test method will determine the Bulk, Saturated Surface Dried, and Dry specific gravity and absorption at the SSD condition.
KeywordsSoil Specific gravity, gravel, oversize, aggregates
Needed for phase relationship calculations for density of soil and is used for computing the total density of soil with finer particles for construction control purposes.
