This test method is used to separate particles into size ranges and to determine quantitatively the mass of particles in each range. Composite Sieving, Single Separation.
Depending on the design considerations, a specialized gradation-testing program could be c6913. Please first log in with a verified email before subscribing to alerts. The mass of particles retained on each sieve will be determined. This test method is used to determine the particle-size distribution gradation of a soil sample.
Definitions of Terms Specific to This Standard. It is beyond asm scope of these test methods to consider significant digits used in analysis methods for engineering design.
As the voice of the U. Your Alert Profile lists the documents that will be monitored. This test method uses a square opening sieve criterion in determining the gradation of soil between the 3-in.
Standards Subsctiption may be the perfect solution. 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.
Dispersing and Washing 2 nd Subspecimen. 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. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
For more information, contact: The procedure may be specified by the requesting authority; otherwise the guidance given in Section shall be followed. It is beyond the scope of these test methods to consider significant digits used in analysis methods for engineering design. Subscription pricing is determined by: For specimens containing very large particles, the specimen may require two separations; i.
This standard is also available to be included in Standards Subscriptions. This method is only applicable for single sieve-set sieving and when the maximum particle size is equal to or less than the No. Discussion on Segregating Soils. Hand Sieve Shaking Procedure.
Soaking without a Dispersant. The procedures used do not consider material variation, purpose for obtaining the data, special purpose studies, or any considerations for the user’s objectives; and it is common practice to increase d69113 reduce significant digits of reported data to be commensurate with these considerations. Soil testing Back to Results Print. You can download and open this file to your own computer but DRM prevents opening this file on another computer, including a networked server.
Mortar and Rubber-Covered Pestle optional. 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. Only the SI units are used for mass determinations, calculations, and reported results.
The alterations could require the washing and sieving procedures to be standardized such that each specimen would be processed in a similar manner. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Except, the sieve designations are typically identified using the “alternative” system in accordance with Practice E 11, such as 3 in.
