ASTM D Standard

This test method is best suited for minus 4 sized material. Users of this test method are cautioned that compliance with Practice D does not in itself ensure reliable testing. For Individuals with needing special assistance for disabilities or limited English proficiency Please contact our Title VI specialist at This method is used for occasions when a more expedient method is desirable for water content d46643.

Note 1-Notwithstanding statements of precision and bias contained in this standard, the precision of this test method is dependent on the competence of the personnel performing it and the suitability of the equipment and facilities used.

Users of this test method are cautioned that compliance with Practice D does not asym itself ensure reliable results. This is especially important if ashm water content will be used to calculate other relationships such as moist mass to dry mass or vice versa, wet unit weight to dry unit weight or vice versa, and total density to dry density or vice versa.

Active Risk Management

This occurs since 1 plus the water content not in percent will have four significant digits regardless of what the value of the water content is; that is, 1 plus 0. This procedure is repeated until the mass becomes nearly constant. Test Method D is to be used as the method to compare for accuracy checks and correction.

It is therefore recommended that samples used in this test method not be used for other tests subsequent to drying. A moist soil specimen is placed in a suitable container and its mass is determined. For some soils, such as those containing significant amounts of halloysite, mica, montmorillonite, gypsum or other hydrated materials, highly organic soils, or soils in which the pore water contains dissolved solids such as salt in the case of marine depositsthis test method may not aetm reliable water content values.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of astn standard. 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.

Performance of the test method utilizing another system of units shall not be considered non-conformance. It is beyond the scope of this standard to consider significant digits used in analysis methods for engineering design. The use of a microwave oven is one such method. For example, if four significant digits are required in any of the above calculations, then the water content has to be recorded to the nearest 0.

Soil testing Lab Services: Reliable results depend on many factors; Practice V4643 provides a means of evaluating some of those factors. It is then placed in a microwave oven, subjected to an interval of drying, and removed from the oven and its new mass is determined.

Therefore, the procedure recommended in this test method is meant to serve as a guide when using the microwave oven. Some microwave ovens have settings at less than full power, which can also be used to reduce overheating.

For some soils, such as those containing significant amounts d643 halloysite, asm, montmorillonite, gypsum or other hydrated materials, highly organic soils, or soils in which the pore water contains dissolved solids such as salt in the case of marine depositsthis test method may not yield reliable water content values.

Larger size particles can be tested; however, care must be taken because of the increased chance of particle shattering. Request Quote Client Login. No other units of measurement are included in this test method.

This method may not be appropriate when highly accurate results are required. Agencies that meet the criteria of Practice D are generally considered capable of competent and objective testing.

The quality of the results produced by this test method is dependent on the competence of the aztm performing it and the suitability of the equipment and facilities used. For more information, contact: Soil testing Back to Results Print.

For example, if four significant digits are required in any of the above calculations, then the water content has to be recorded to the nearest 0. The behavior of a soil, when d443 to microwave energy, is dependent on its mineralogical compositions, and as a result no one procedure is applicable for all types of soil.

Active view current version of standard. The s4643 objection to the use of the microwave oven for water content determination has been the possibility of overheating the soil and obtaining erroneous results. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and 4d643 practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Reliable testing depends on many factors; Practice D provides a means of evaluating some of those factors.
