Relative density of cohesionless soil test sets

EN 13286-5 | ASTM D4253 | ASTM D4254
General description
General description
This method, in the EN standard, covers the determination of the maximum dry density and water  content of cohesionless materials when compacted using a vibrating table. Materials for which yhis method is applicable may contain up to 12% by mass fines (<0.063 mm). The maximum particle size of the materials to be tested is 80 mm. This method applies to mixtures to be used in road construction. The ASTM, also specify that it is used for the determination of the relative density of cohesionless soil for which impact compaction will not produce a well defined moisture-density relationship curve and where the maximum density of impact method will generally be less than by vibratory method.
The two versions: 33-T0063/A Conforming to EN and 33-T0063 Conforming to ASTM are practical identical except for the 0.1 cu.ft mould
