This Indian Standard was adopted by the Bureau of Indian Standards on 17 August 1987, after the draft finalized ~by the Soil Engineering Sectional Committee had been approved by the Civil Engineering Division Council. The Bureau of Indian Standards has already published a series of standards on methods of testing soils. It has been recognized that reliable and intercomparable test results can be obtained only with standard testing equipment capable of giving the desired level of accuracy. The Sectional Committee has, therefore, decided to bring out a series of specifications covering the requirements of equipment .used for testing soils to encourage its development and manufacture in the country. The equipment covered in this standard is used as a part of the assembly for the equipment used for the determination of water content from the gas pressure developed by the reaction of calcium carbide with the free water of the soil covered in IS : 2720 ( Part 2 )-1973*.  For the purpose of deciding whether a particular requirement of this standard is complied with, the final value, observed or calculated, expressing the result of a test or analysis, shall be rounded off in accordance with IS : 2-196Of. The number of significant places retained in the rounded off value should be the same as that of the specified value in this standard.
