Description / Abstract:

This test method covers the determination of relative density (specific gravity) and the absorption of coarse aggregates. The relative density (specific gravity), a dimensionless quantity, is expressed as oven-dry (OD), saturated-surface-dry (SSD), or as apparent relative density (apparent specific gravity). The OD relative density is determined after drying the aggregate. The SSD relative density and absorption are determined after soaking the aggregate in water for a prescribed duration. 

This test method is not intended to be used with lightweight aggregates that comply with Specification C332 Group I aggregates. 

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard. 

The text of this test method references notes and footnotes that provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of this test method. 

This 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.
