ASTM D2726-11 Standard Test Method for Bulk Specific Gravity and Density of Non-Absorptive Compacted Bituminous Mixtures
ASTM International / 01-Dec-2011 / 4 pages ASTM D2726-11 pdf
1.1 This ASTM D2726-11 test method covers the determination of bulk specific gravity and density of specimens of compacted bituminous mixtures.
1.2 This ASTM D2726-11 test method should not be used with samples that contain open or interconnecting voids or absorb more than 2 % of water by volume, or both, as determined in 10.3.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.4 This ASTM D2726-11 standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
