Revision of D8167/D8167M-18a Standard Test Method for In-Place Bulk Density of Soil and Soil-Aggregate by a Low-Activity Nuclear Method (Shallow Depth)

Rationale

Recent developments in the instrument described in D8167 have made it possible for this device to acquire meaningful wet density measurements at depths of up to 300 mm [12 in.] However, the depth of measurement in the current version of D8176 lists the limits of this depth of measurement to 200 mm [8 in.] in the “Scope” section. The purpose of this revision is to reflect the current depth measurements capabilities of the instrument in the standard.
