Low Temperature Drying Oven optional. Composite Sieving, Mass of Specimen.
Depending on the design considerations, a specialized gradation-testing program could be performed. It is assumed that the sample is obtained using appropriate methods and is representative.
Please first verify your email before subscribing to alerts. Proceed to Checkout Continue Shopping. However, the applicable sections above should be used in applying this standard. Soil testing Lab Services: In addition, they are representative of the significant digits that generally should be retained. This process is termed composite sieving.
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. However, the specimen may contain a wide range of particle sizes and may require separating adtm soil into two, or three size ranges for more efficient sieving, using one or two designated separating sieve s.
Dispersing and Washing 2 nd Coarser Portion. Dry Sieving 2 nd Coarser Portion. 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.
The procedure may be specified by the requesting authority; aastm the guidance given in Section 10 shall be d613. Furthermore, if the maximum particle size is greater than 4.
Using an Ultrasonic Water Bath. It is beyond asm scope of these test methods to consider significant digits used in analysis methods for engineering design.

For special conditions see The material to be sieved will be placed on the coarsest sieve size of each sieve set and mechanically shaken. 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.
Large Mechanical Sieve Shaker. This test method uses a square opening sieve criterion in determining the gradation of soil between the 3-in.
Soaking without a Dispersant. These data are combined to determine the particle-size distribution gradation.
ASTM D Standard
The method to be used may be specified by the requesting authority; otherwise Method A shall be performed. Selection of Sieving Procedure.
Such extraneous matter can affect the washing and sieving procedures. Finer Portion, Percent Passing optional. The method to be used may be specified by the requesting authority; otherwise Method A shall be performed.
This method is only applicable for single sieve-set sieving and when the maximum particle size is equal to or less than the No. Samples from Prior Testing. Ultrasonic Water Bath optional. Soil testing Back to Results Print.
