Unformatted text preview: Record all weights to 0.1g Partially fill pycnometer with water and introduce 500g of saturated surface dry aggregate Add water till 90% full and eliminate air bubbles Fill pycnometer to calibrated capacity and weigh pycnometer, specimen and water together Remove fine aggregate and dry to constant weight Weigh pycnometer with full capacity of water Post-Lab Test Conditions The test conditions for this process were normal for the procedure. Results Dry Weight = A = 493.00 g Pycnometer + Water = B = 669.40 g Weight of Pycnometer + FA + Water = C = 961.90 g Bulk Specific Gravity = 2.38 Bulk Specific Gravity (SSD) = 2.41 Apparent Specific Gravity = 2.46 Absorption = 1.42 % Comments The procedure was followed as written and everything proceeded normally....
