Standard Method of Test for
Total Evaporable Moisture Content of Aggregate by Drying
AASHTO Designation: T 255-00 (2004)1
ASTM Designation: C 566-97 (2004)
1.1.This test method covers the determination of the percentage of evaporable moisture in a sample of aggregate by drying both surface moisture and
moisture in the pores of the aggregate.
Some aggregate may contain water that is chemically combined with the minerals in the aggregate.
Such water is not evaporable and is not included in the percentage determined by this test method.
1.2.The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values stated in parentheses are provided for information only.
1.3.This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, ifany, 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.
For specific precautionary statements, see Sections 5.3.1, 7.2.1, and 7.3.1.
