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

The quality of the results produced by this test method is dependent on the competence of the personnel performing it and the suitability of the equipment and facilities used. For Individuals with needing special assistance for disabilities or limited English proficiency Please contact our Title VI specialist at Agencies that meet the criteria of Practice D are generally considered capable of competent and objective testing. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

This method is used for occasions when a more expedient method is desirable for water content determinations. Users of this test method are cautioned that compliance with Practice D does not in itself ensure reliable testing. 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 awtm. Larger size particles can aastm tested; however, care must be taken because of the increased chance of particle shattering.

No other units of measurement are included in this test method. 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 asfm case of marine depositsthis test method may not yield reliable water content values.

Degregation of individual particles may occur, along with vaporization or chemical transition. Reliable results depend on many factors; Practice D provides a means of evaluating some of those factors.

ASTM D Standard

This method may not be appropriate when highly accurate results are required. The principal objection to the use of the microwave oven for water content determination has been the possibility of overheating the soil and obtaining erroneous results.

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 yield reliable water content values.

The use of a microwave oven is one such method. Therefore, the procedure recommended in this asm method is meant to serve as a guide when using the microwave oven. While not eliminating this possibility, the incremental drying procedure described in this test method will minimize its effects. Agencies that meet the criteria of Practice D are generally considered capable of competent and objective testing.

In addition, they are representative of the significant digits that generally should be retained. This test method is best suited for minus 4 sized material. Some microwave ovens have settings at less than full power, which can also be used to reduce overheating. It is beyond the scope of this standard to consider significant digits used in analysis methods for engineering design. A moist soil specimen is placed in a suitable astj and its mass is determined.

Larger size particles xstm be tested; however, care must be taken because of the increased chance of sstm shattering. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

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

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.

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.

Performance of the test method utilizing another system of units shall not be considered non-conformance. This is especially important if the 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.

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.

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.

Soil testing Lab Services: This procedure is repeated until the mass astk nearly constant. The use of Test Method D for water content determination can be time consuming and there are occasions when a more expedient method is desirable.

It is therefore recommended that samples used in this test method not be used for other tests subsequent to drying. Users of aastm test method are cautioned that compliance with D6443 D does not in itself ensure reliable results.
