bulk specific gravity

Definition

The ratio of the mass in air of a unit volume of a permeable material, including both permeable and impermeable voids normal to the material, at a stated temperature to the mass in air of equal density of an equal volume of gas-free distilled water at a stated temperature. Saturated-surface-dry basis bulk specific gravity is the same as bulk specific gravity except that the mass includes the water in the permeable voids.
