This method involves the use of a pycnometer, or weighing I4 in high of made of 5 in. diameter brass pipe, in which a IO to I5 lb sample of concrete is accurately weighed and its absolute volume accurately determined. The difference between the absolute volume and the bulk volume mined in the usual weight-per-unit-volume operation, gives the volume of entrained air. Calibrated weights and a sensitive capacity are required.balance of fairly large
