Soils - Determination of Density of Solid Particles

Standard CAN/BNQ 2501-070
Soils - Determination of Density of Solid Particles

This national standard specifies the test method used to determine the density of solid particles of soils that pass through a 5 mm sieve. The results of the test are used for designing civil engineering structures or for verifying their quality.

The standard sets out requirements regarding six main elements:

  • apparatus;
  • calibrating the pycnometer;
  • preparing the sample;
