## How do you find the density of a bitumen?

**Using a digital density meter**

The standard test method (ASTM D8188) requires a digital density meter to measure the asphalt/bitumen samples. A density meter requires less sample volume (around 3 mL to 4 mL, which is about half the amount needed by pycnometers).

## What is the density of bitumen in kg m3?

It means that **1.010kg to 1.060kg** is one desi cubic meter.

## What is the unit weight of bitumen?

Material | Unit Weight |
---|---|

Sand (wet) | 1760 to 2000 Kg/ m3 |

Steel | 7850 Kg/ m3 |

Chalk | 2100 Kg/ m3 |

Bitumen | 1040 Kg/ m3 |

## What is the density of sand in kg m3?

Normal loose dry sand has the density of **1442 kg/m3**. Sand Density Formula: The ratio of mass of the sand to the volume of calibrating container gives you the density of sand.

## What is the density of tar?

The obtained coal tar samples have the viscosity of 17.5 and 18.0 cP while the density was **0.9119 and 0.9156 g/cm3** for Garin Maiganga and Shankodi respectively.

## What is the density of bitumen 80 100?

Bitumen grade 80/100 Specification

Specific gravity determines the density of the bitumen. According to the ASTM D70, the density of bitumen 80/100 in kg/m^{3} is equal to **1009.6**.

## How many types of bitumen are there?

There are **three varieties** of bitumen emulsion, namely, slow setting (SS), medium setting (MS) and rapid setting (RS) depending upon the stability provided by the emulsifying agent. It can be easily applied at ambient temperature, merely mixing it with aggregates for road works starts the binding process.

## What is specific gravity of bitumen?

Bitumen binder has specific gravity in the range of **0.97 to 1.02**. In case bitumen contains mineral impurities the specific gravity will be higher. Thus it is possible for a quantitative extraction of mineral impurity in bitumen.

## What is the weight of 20mm aggregate?

Density of 20mm and 40mm aggregate ranging between 1450 kg/m3 to **1550 kg/m3**, consider density of 20mm aggregate is equal to 1550 kg/m3, it means weight of 1 cubic metre of 20 mm size aggregate is equal to 1550 kg.

## How much is bitumen per sqm?

You can expect the cost of asphalt per m2 to be anywhere from **around $25/m2 to $40/m2**.

## What are the grades of bitumen?

Grade | Viscosity Range at 60°C (Absolute Viscosity) |
---|---|

VG-10 Bitumen | 800-1200 |

VG-20 Bitumen | 1600-2400 |

VG-30 Bitumen | 2400-3600 |

VG-40 Bitumen | 3200-4000 |

## What is the density of asphalt?

Standard density for asphalt is **145 lb/ft ^{3} (2322 kg/m^{3})**. Multiply the volume by the density (in the same units) to get the weight.

## What is density of fine aggregate?

Sr. No. | Materials Name | Density |
---|---|---|

2. | Sand or Fine Aggregate | 1450 to 2082 kg/m^{3} |

3. | Bricks | 1600 to 1920 kg/m^{3} |

4. | Steel | 7850 kg/m^{3} |

5. | Coarse aggregate or Gravel | 2850 to 2960 kg/m^{3} |

## Is 73 a bitumen?

This standard was first published in 1950 as ‘Specification for asphaltic bitumen and fluxed native asphalt for road making purpose’ which was revised in 1961 to change the grades of material and incorporate the methods of test as per 1S 1201 to IS 1220 : 1958 ‘Methods for testing tar and bitumen’.
