Abstract

SCOPE AND FIELD OF APPLICATION

This NORDTEST method is intended for the determination of the density of test specimens of concrete made from normally occurring types of rock-type aggregate. The aim of the method is to determine the density of the concrete with an accuracy within ± 20 kg/m3.

-    as received

-    after the concrete has been stored in water

-    after drying at 105 ºC.

The density, expressed in kg/m3, is the ratio between the weight (the mass) of a given sample of the concrete and its volume.

In the main, the method agrees with IS0 6275. With regard to any deviations, see Comments.
