ASTM D2395

Full Name

ASTM D2395 – Standard Test Methods for Density and Specific Gravity (Relative Density) of Wood and Wood-Based Materials


These test methods cover the determination of the density and specific gravity (relative density) of wood and wood-based materials to generally desired degrees of accuracy and for specimens of different sizes, shapes, and moisture content conditions.

The test method title is indicative of the procedures used or the specific area of use:

  1. Test Method A – Volume by Measurement
  2. Test Method B – Volume by Water Immersion
  3. Test Method C – Flotation Tube
  4. Test Method D – Forstner Bit
  5. Test Method E – Increment Core
  6. Test Method F – Chips
  7. Test Method G – Full-Size Members
