    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard covers the determination of the minimum and maximum dry density of a cohesionless material, using loose pouring to obtain the minimum dry density and vibratory compaction to obtain the maximum dry density.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This method covers the determination of the minimum and maximum dry density of a cohesionless material, using loose pouring to obtain the minimum dry density and vibratory compaction to obtain the maximum dry density (see Notes 1 and 2).
