Mortar and Rubber-Covered Pestle optional. You can download and open this file to your own computer but DRM prevents opening this file on another computer, including a networked server. Finer Portion, Percent Passing optional. These data are combined to determine the particle-size distribution gradation.
D613 Alert Profile lists the documents that will be monitored. Furthermore, if the maximum particle size is greater than 4. Ultrasonic Water Bath optional.
ASTM D Standard
The methods differ in the significant digits recorded and the size of the specimen mass required. Except, adtm sieve designations are typically identified using the “alternative” system in accordance with Practice E 11, such as 3 in.
For specimens containing relatively small particles, the specimen is sieved in its entirety, using single sieve-set sieving. Standards Subsctiption may be the aztm solution. Separating 1 st Subspecimen.
Active Risk Management
This method must be used when asstm composite sieving. Hand Sieve Shaking Procedure. Asm is assumed that the sample is obtained using appropriate methods and is representative. For Individuals with needing special assistance for disabilities or limited English proficiency Please contact our Title VI specialist ast, Depending on the design considerations, a specialized gradation-testing program could be performed.
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. However, the use of balances or scales recording pounds of mass lbm shall not be regarded as nonconformance with this standard. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.
D69913 Mechanical Sieve Shaker. 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.
Oven-Dried Procedure, Composite Sieving. Moist Procedure, Composite Sieving.
It is assumed that the sample is obtained using appropriate methods and is representative. The methods differ in the significant digits recorded and the size of the specimen mass required. For special conditions d693.
However, the applicable sections above should be used in applying this standard. The material to be sieved will be placed on the coarsest sieve size of each sieve set and mechanically asttm. This test method uses a square opening sieve criterion in determining the gradation of soil between the 3-in.
These results are mathematically combined. This test method is used to determine the particle-size distribution gradation of a soil sample. It is beyond the scope of these test methods to consider significant digits used in analysis methods for engineering design. Composite Sieving, Double Separation. 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 or reduce significant digits of reported data to be commensurate with these considerations.
