Full Name

ASTM D2950 – Standard Test Method for Density of Bituminous Concrete in Place by Nuclear Methods


This test method describes a test procedure for determining the density of bituminous concrete by the attenuation of gamma radiation, where the source and detector(s) remain on the surface (Backscatter Method) or the source or detector is placed at a known depth up to 300 mm [12 in.] while the detector or source remains on the surface (Direct Transmission Method).
