Finally, if the maximum particle size is equal to or greater than However, the applicable sections above asym be used in applying this standard.
Dispersing and Washing 2 nd Subspecimen. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
The method to be used may be specified by the requesting authority; d913 Method A shall be performed. Separating 1 st Subspecimen. Furthermore, if the maximum particle size is greater than 4.
If the document is revised or amended, you will be notified by email. Discussion on Segregating Soils.
In addition, they are representative of the significant digits that generally should be retained. Standards Subsctiption aetm be the perfect solution. This test method uses a square opening sieve criterion in determining the gradation of soil between the 3-in.
Active Risk Management
Active view current version of standard. This test method is used to determine the particle-size distribution gradation of a soil sample. Soaking without a Dispersant. For Individuals with needing special assistance for disabilities or xstm English proficiency Please contact our Title R6913 specialist at This test method is used to separate particles into size ranges and to determine quantitatively the mass of particles in each range.
Summary of Test Method. You may delete a document from your Alert Profile at any time. The methods differ in the significant digits recorded and the size of the specimen mass required. 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.
Samples from Prior Testing. Soaking with a Dispersant. The methods differ in the significant digits recorded and the size of the specimen mass required.
This method is only applicable for single sieve-set sieving and when the maximum particle size is equal to or less than the No. This standard is not included in aastm packages. These data are combined to determine the particle-size distribution gradation.
This test method uses a square opening sieve criterion in determining the gradation of soil between the 3-in.
The mass of particles retained on each sieve will be determined. Depending on the design considerations, a specialized gradation-testing program could be performed.

You can download and open this file to your own computer but DRM prevents opening this file on another computer, including a networked server. It is beyond the scope of these test methods to consider significant digits used in analysis methods for engineering design. Low Temperature Drying Oven optional. For example, highway embankments, backfills, and earthen dams may have gradation requirements. These results are mathematically combined. Ultrasonic Water Bath optional.
These data are combined to determine the particle-size distribution gradation.
Furthermore, if the maximum particle size is greater than 4. Dry Sieving 2 nd Coarser Portion. Composite Sieving, Single Separation.
