Description

This Standard sets out a procedure for determining the field density of fine-grained, medium-grained and coarse-grained soils (as defined in AS 1289.0), by sand replacement with or without the use of volume displacers.

The gross mass per unit volume (wet density) may be calculated, and the dry mass per unit volume (dry density) obtained by correcting for the moisture content.

The field density is determined for the total material at the test site. Any of the following procedures may be used:

  • Procedure A: without a volume displacer, layer thickness about 50250mm.
  • Procedure B: with a known-volume displacer, layer thickness not less than about 100mm.
  • Procedure C: with an IPCAD volume displacer device, layer thickness about 75250mm.
