This standard describes four procedures for determining the bulk density of a compacted bituminous specimen. By the described method the bulk density can be determined from specimens which are laboratory compacted or from cores cut from the pavement after placement and compacting. Four procedures are described; the choice of the procedure to be followed depends on the estimated content and accessibility of voids in the specimen.
