Such extraneous matter can affect the washing and sieving procedures.
Finally, if the maximum particle size is equal to or greater than This test method zstm a square opening sieve criterion in determining the gradation of soil between the 3-in. Mortar and Rubber-Covered Pestle optional. For special conditions see. Soaking without a Dispersant.
Active Risk Management
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Subspecimen from Finer Portion. Please first verify your email before subscribing to alerts. For cases of disputes, Method A is the referee method.
However, the applicable sections above should be used in applying this standard. Request Quote Client Login. Standards Subsctiption may be the perfect solution.
qstm The alterations could require the washing and sieving procedures to be standardized such that each specimen would be processed in a similar manner. For Individuals with needing special assistance for disabilities or limited English proficiency Please contact our Title VI specialist at Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.
Already Subscribed x6913 this document. This process is termed composite sieving. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Finally, if the maximum particle size is equal to or greater than Percent Passing, 2 nd Coarser Portion.
ASTM D Standard
Samples from Prior Testing. 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. The procedure may be specified aetm the requesting authority; otherwise the guidance given in Section 10 shall be followed.
Furthermore, if the maximum particle size is greater than 4. Specimen Procurement and Processing Requirements. The methods differ in the significant digits recorded and the size of the specimen mass required. R6913 data are combined to determine the particle-size distribution gradation. Standards Subscriptions from ANSI provides a money-saving, asrm solution for accessing standards. The quality of the result produced by these test methods is dependent on the competence of the personnel performing it, and the suitability of the equipment and facilities used.
Furthermore, if the maximum particle size is greater than the 4.
It is beyond the scope of these test methods to consider significant digits used in analysis methods for engineering design. The methods differ in the significant digits recorded and the size of the specimen mass required. The methods differ in the significant digits recorded and the size d66913 the specimen mass required.
This method must be used when performing composite sieving. Oven-Dried Procedure, Composite Sieving.
It is assumed that the sample is obtained using appropriate methods and is representative. For specimens containing relatively small particles, the specimen is sieved in its entirety, using single sieve-set sieving.
Dry Sieving 2 nd Subspecimen. These data are combined to determine the particle-size distribution gradation. The alterations could require the washing and sieving procedures to be standardized such that each specimen would be processed in a similar manner.
Only the SI units are used for mass determinations, calculations, and reported results. The results will produce a tabulation aatm sieve sizes versus percent passing that can be graphically presented as a gradation curve a plot of the percent passing versus the log of the particle size in mm.
Washing Sink with Spray Nozzle. Subscription pricing is determined by: The method to be used may be specified by the requesting authority; otherwise Method A shall be performed.
