These data are combined to determine the particle-size distribution gradation.
Finally, if the maximum particle size is equal to or greater than Soaking with a Dispersant. Proceed to Checkout Continue Shopping.
Dispersing and Washing Subspecimen. Composite Sieving, Mass of Specimen. Hydraulic conductivity, compressibility, and shear strength are related to the gradation of the soil.
Furthermore, if the maximum particle size is greater than the 4. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Composite Sieving, Single Separation.
Air-Dried Procedure, Composite Sieving. Your Alert Profile lists the documents that will be monitored. Samples from Prior Testing. For Individuals with needing special assistance for disabilities or limited English proficiency Please contact asgm Title VI specialist at Typical examples of these soils are some residual soils, most weathered shales and some weakly cemented soils such as hardpan, caliche or coquina.
It is assumed that the sample is obtained using appropriate methods and is representative. Finally, if the maximum particle size is equal to or greater than In addition, they are representative of the significant qstm that generally should be retained.

The results will produce a tabulation of 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.
This test method is used to separate particles into size ranges and to determine quantitatively the mass of particles aetm each range. Dry Sieving 2 nd Subspecimen. Already Subscribed to this document.
ASTM D Standard
This test method uses a square opening sieve criterion in determining the gradation of soil between the 3-in. The material to be sieved will be placed on the coarsest sieve size of each sieve set and mechanically shaken.
Soaking without a Dispersant.
For cases of disputes, Method A is the referee method. Dispersing and Washing 2 nd Subspecimen. Standards Subscriptions from ANSI provides a money-saving, multi-user solution for accessing standards. The alterations could require the washing and sieving procedures to be standardized such that each specimen would be processed in a similar manner.
The mass of particles retained on each sieve will be determined. This standard is also available to be included in Standards Subscriptions. However, the applicable sections above should be used in applying this standard. Only the SI units are used for mass determinations, calculations and reported results. Furthermore, if the maximum particle size is greater than 4. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
Selection of Sieving Procedure. The method to be used may be specified by the requesting authority; otherwise Method A shall be performed.
