All standardized measuring methods investigated require such correction plots. 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 for a selected soil.

Plots of measured values versus controlled values provide means for adjusting the values measured in the field for a specific soil. These test methods have been written using the gravitational system satm units when dealing with the inch-pound system. 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.


Cohesionless soils, for example, are sensitive to volume change during shear. The inch-pound equivalents may be approximate. International Road Federation Publisher: For specific Hazard statements, see X2922.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. Specific plots for a given soil generally are not applicable aastm other soils.

Freedom of unknown errors must be achieved by means of developing density calibration curve s. For quality control purposes in road construction, in-place density measurements at shallow depths must be as free of error as possible.

Active Risk Management

Addition of moisture in such soils provides some cohesion that alters the error involved in a density measurement. Sep 30 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.


Other sources of errors exist with the nuclear standard test, ASTM d It is scientifically undesirable to combine d29222 use of two separate sets of inch-pound units within a single standard. Correction Mathematics ; Quality Subject Areas: Stay on Page Continue to Compass. In this system the pound lbf represents a unit of force weight. Thus, measured values of in-place density are found to be different from the controlled values. This implicitly combines two separate systems astmm units; that is, the absolute system and the gravitational system.
