BS 812-2:1995

Testing aggregates. Methods for determination of density

Status : Partially replaced, Confirmed, Current   Published : August 1995 Replaced By : BS EN 1097-3:1998



This British Standard, a part of the BS 812 series, describes methods for the determination of the particle density, water absorption, bulk density, voids and bulking of aggregates and of the particle density, bulk density and voids of filler. Some of the tests are intended for use in obtaining assurance that material complies with British Standard or other requirements, for research, production control or assessment of variation.

Three main methods are described for aggregates, a wire basket method for aggregates larger than 10 mm, a gas jar method for aggregates between 40 mm and 5 mm and a pyknometer or gas jar method for aggregates 10 mm nominal size and smaller.
