The first is the geometry of the puncture implement which is 8mm in diamater with a 45 degree beveled or chamfered edge.

ASTM D – Geomembrane Puncture Fixture

Geotextiles are commonly asstm in pavements, earth retaining structures, and landfills, as well as other geotechnical applications. Statistical analyses were conducted to establish a correlation between CBR and pin puncture strength values. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

Geo-textiles are also used in land reclamation projects as well as for highway and road construction. Other state DOTs refer to both D and D, or provide a list of alternative test methods to be considered in place of either of these tests. ASTM D is used for evaluating the puncture strength of sharp objects such as rocks and stones that rest within soil.

The second is the size of the open hole in the clamping jig. The objective of this research is to attempt to correlate the CBR and pin puncture strengths for various categories of geotextiles, regardless of weave type and mass per unit area. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.


Cover Date – May The test specimens should then be randomly assigned in equal numbers to each laboratory for testing. The use of this test method is to establish an index value by providing standard criteria and a basis for uniform reporting.

Competent statistical assistance is recommended for the investigation of bias. However, UV and weathering tests showed significant degradation in the puncture strength after exposure. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed ast are referenced atm the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

This test evaluates the ability of geotextiles to withstand stresses and loads during construction, which is among the severe conditions that geotextiles can experience. Puncture resistances of materials with like mass per unit area and base material but with different weave type were also examined. In phase I, ten and fifteen samples of each geotextile type were tested using CBR and pin punctures strength tests, respectively, while a total of ten samples per geotextile type were tested in phase II.

All types of geotextiles exhibited puncture strength values, whether pin or CBR, that were consistent within each group with coefficients of variation ranging from 2.

They include the average puncture stength which is an average of the peak load across multiple specimens of the same type of sample. University of Wisconsin, Madison. Other calculations are d433 around the variability and deviation between tests. Jun 21 Correlations were successfully used to estimate the CBR puncture strength values from the pin test with a reasonable accuracy.

ASTM D Puncture Fixture – Geomembranes | GD

As a minimum, the two parties should take a group of test specimens that are as homogeneous as possible and that are from a lot material of the type in question. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other.

The material is used to maintain a barrier and prevent the soil from washing away during torrential rain. The clamping jig and puncture implement are available as a package.

This inconsistency is the result of a missing connection between the old and new ASTMs. There are several calculations that are common across most puncture tests.

ASTM D4833 Puncture Fixture – Geomembranes | GD4833-174

An average must be taken because textiles are non uniform based on d8433 woven stricture. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

The average results from the two laboratories should be compared using Student’s t -test for unpaired data and an acceptable probability level chosen by the two parties before the testing is begun. There are two key elements to this procedure. Please see our literature below for more info on the exact construction of the fixture.
