Note This practice does not apply to liners used within the samplers. A piston sampler Practice D must be used to ensure that there is no fluid or sidewall contamination astn would enter an open sampling tube. Soil samples inside the tubes can be readily evaluated for disturbance or other features such as presence of fissures, inclusions, layering or voids using X-ray radiography D if facilities are available.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. It is common practice to extrude or remove the soil core either in the field or at the receiving laboratory axtm upon receipt. Piston samplers in Practice D use thin-walled tubes.

This document cannot replace education or asrm and should be used in conjunction with professional judgment. This design was used to recover sand samples that tend to run out of the tube with sampler withdraw. Lengths of tubes shown are illustrative. There are also possible microbial reactions caused by temporary exposure to air.


The research shows that loose sands are densified and dense sands are loosened during tube insertion because the penetration process is drained, allowing grain rearrangement.

Unconsolidated undrained tests are more reliable but can still suffer from disturbance problems. Disturbance will result in errors in accurate determination of both yield stress 5. Kontakt venligst Dansk Standard.

This tube can provide intact samples for most laboratory tests; however some tests may require larger diameter tubes. Longer time periods may be allowed depending on logistics and the quality assurance requirements of the exploration plan. Figure 2 shows the standard sampler with a ball check valve in the head, which is used in fluid rotary drilled holes.

Activation of your aztm failed – please try again later or contact us. Use in very stiff and hard clays with insertion by driving or hammering cannot provide an intact sample. Reliable results depend on many factors; Practice D provides a means of evaluating some of those factors.

This ASTM standard is not intended to represent or replace the standard of care by which the adequacy of a given professional service must be judged, nor should this document be applied without consideration of a project’s many unique aspects. Such samplers include driven split barrel asm and soil coring devices Test Methods D, D, and Practice D You must be logged in to sign up for monitoring You must be logged in to sign up for subscription.


This sampling method is not recommended for sampling soils containing gravel or larger size soil particles cemented or very hard soils. Agencies such as the U. Any drilling method that ensures the base of the borehole is intact and that the borehole walls are stable may be aztm. Use of metric equivalent is acceptable as long as thickness and proportions are similar to those required in this standard. Typical sizes of thin-walled tubes are shown asgm Table 1.

Unconfined compression tests should be only used with caution or based on experience because they often provide unreliable measure of undrained strength, especially in fissured clays. Advanced tests, such as consolidated, undrained triaxial compression Test Method D testing, coupled with one dimensional consolidation tests Test Methods D and D are performed xstm better asttm the relationship between stress history and the strength and compression characteristics of the soil as described by Ladd and Degroot, 4.

Soft clays require C r of 0 or less than 0. Wall thickness may be changed 5.
