Standard Method of Test for
Specific Gravity and Absorption of
AASHTO Designation:T 84-081
ASTM Designation:C 128-04a
1.1.This method covers the determination of bulk and apparent specific gravity, 23/23°C (73.4/73.4°F), and absorption of fine aggregate.
1.2.This method determines (after 15 hours in water) the bulk specific gravity and the apparent specific gravity, the bulk specific gravity
on the basis of mass of saturated surface-dry aggregate, and the absorption.
1.3.The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
