Oven-Dried Procedure, Composite Sieving. The method to be used may be specified by the requesting authority; otherwise Method A shall be performed.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. Selection of Sieving Procedure.
Percent Passing, 2 nd Subspecimen. Dry Sieving asrm nd Coarser Portion. This test method is used to determine the particle-size distribution gradation of a soil sample. Proceed to Checkout Continue Shopping.
Soaking without a Dispersant. However, the specimen may contain a wide range of particle sizes and may require separating the soil into two, or three size ranges for more efficient sieving, using one or two designated separating sieve s. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Xstm version of the standard. This method is only applicable for single sieve-set sieving and when the maximum particle size is equal to or less than the No.
These data are combined to determine the particle-size distribution gradation. However, the use of balances or scales recording pounds of mass lbm shall not be regarded as nonconformance with this standard.
Air-Dried Procedure, Composite Sieving. Such extraneous matter can affect the washing and sieving procedures. We have no amendments or corrections for this standard.
ASTM D Standard
This test method uses a square opening sieve criterion in determining the gradation of soil between the 3-in. The procedure may be specified by the requesting authority; otherwise the guidance given in Section 10 shall be followed. For Individuals with needing special assistance for disabilities or d691 English proficiency Please contact our Title VI specialist at Discussion on Segregating Soils. Dispersing and Washing 2 nd Subspecimen.
It is beyond the scope of these test methods to consider significant digits used in analysis methods for engineering design. Samples from Prior Testing.
Dispersing and Washing 2 nd Coarser Portion. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and aztm the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
Finer Portion, Percent Passing optional. Composite Sieving, Double Separation.
The procedure may be r6913 by the requesting authority; otherwise the guidance given in Section 10 shall be followed. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. This standard is not included in any packages.
Hydraulic conductivity, compressibility, and shear strength are related to the gradation of the soil. Please first log in with a verified email before subscribing to alerts. Furthermore, if the maximum particle size is greater than 4. Please first verify your email before subscribing to alerts.
Low Temperature Drying Oven optional. You may delete a document from your Alert Profile at any time.
The procedure selected will depend on the type of sample, the maximum particle-size in the sample, the range of particle sizes, the initial conditions of the material, the plasticity of the material, the efficiency, and the need for other testing on the sample.
