Apparatus determines the relative density of granular soils that do not respond well to Proctor moisture-density tests. Maximum density is determined by placing soil in special molds and densifying using a vibrating table and surcharge. Minimum index density is determined by loose placement in the molds using special pouring funnels, scoop, or shovel, depending on the size of soil particles.
- Relative Density Gauge Set is used with Relative Density Mold Sets for measuring the distance from mold top to base plate after densification in accordance with ASTM standards.
- Relative Density Mold Set used in determining volume change of granular soils. The select mold set with 0.1ft³ or 0.5ft³ capacities.
- Relative Density Pouring Funnel Set used for loose placement of granular soils 3/8in or finer in relative density mold sets. Set includes two funnels with a 6in delivery spout; one in with a diameter of .50in and the other with a 1in diameter.
- Relative Density Vibrating Table is for consolidating granular soils and determination of relative density. Meets ASTM standards.
