Active Risk Management
Plots of measured values versus controlled values provide means for adjusting the values measured in the field for a specific soil. Link to Active This astj will always route to the current Active version of the standard.
All standardized measuring methods investigated require such correction plots. Freedom of unknown errors must be achieved by means of developing density calibration curve s. Cohesionless soils, for example, are sensitive to volume change during shear.
New Soil and Rock Test Method Combines Elements from Soil Density and Water Content Standards
The inch-pound equivalents may be approximate. This implicitly combines two separate systems of units; that is, the absolute system and the gravitational system. It is scientifically undesirable to combine the use of asfm separate sets of inch-pound units within a single standard. The paper discusses 1 the degree of errors in the investigated standardized in-place density measurements by comparing with known or controlled densities, and 2 the development of calibration curves zstm a selected soil.
These test methods have been written using the gravitational system of units when dealing with the inch-pound system. Other sources of errors exist with the nuclear standard test, ASTM d Correction Mathematics ; Quality Subject Areas: For specific Hazard 2d922, see Section.
These test methods cover the determination of the total or wet density of soil and soil-rock mixtures by the attenuation of gamma radiation where the source and detector s remain on the surface Backscatter Method or the source or detector is placed at a known depth up to mm 12 in.
In this system the pound lbf represents a unit of force weight. International Road Federation Publisher: Stay on Page Continue to Compass. For quality control purposes in road construction, in-place density measurements at shallow depths must be ast free of error as possible. 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.
Specific plots for a given soil generally are not applicable to other astmm. Thus, measured values of in-place density are found to be different from the controlled values.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. Addition of moisture in such soils provides some cohesion that alters the error involved in a density measurement.
