Passing through 19mm and retained 4. Check for the hygroscopic moisture.

Repeat until the thread shears both longitudinally and transversely when it has been rolled to about 3mm diameter, as gauged by a rod. Atleast minimum capacity of ml. Soil composed of vegetable tissues in various stages of decomposition usually organic odour, a dark brown or black color, a spongy consistency, and a texture varying from fibrous to amorphous.

Enter the email address you signed up with and we’ll email you a reset link. Dry the asstm sample as received from the field to the room temperature or keeping in the oven at a temperature of C.

Basic Laboratory Testing of Soils | Sravan Muguda Viswanath –

Repeat on the duplicate sample. K is obtained from referring to the table 2, Pg 4,D The choice of the preparation method depends on the properties of the soil. Break Up the aggregations of the particles by a suitable device 3.


Plastic Limit wp is defined as the maximum water content at which the soil can be rolled into a thread of approximately 3mm in diameter without breaking. Filter Funnel or Candles 7. Particles of rock which passes through c2217 and retain on 4. Select a representative sample by the method of quartering. The sstm used should be removed while keeping in the oven, if it is used. Note the temperature each time. There are two ways of preparing the sample. While the material passing through the No.

Passing astn m sieve and 75 m sieves.

Active Risk Management

Soil passing through 75 m sieve that is non plastic or slightly plastic that will exhibit no d2127 little strength when air dry. Mortar and Rubber-Covered Pestle 3. The amount of the representative sample should be enough to perform the required tests.

Click here to c2217 up. By placing the palm on top of the cylinder turn it upside down for about a min. ASTM D gives a guidelines for particle size analysis.


Above water is decanted or pipetted out and dried at C and added to the material passing No. To know the behaviour of soils and its suitability in the site, we need to tests the soils in the field and as well as in the s2217. Procedure for the Moist V2217. The torque is measured by a calibrated torque spring or torque transducer that is attached directly to the vane. Take the initial reading.

Pointer will indicate maximum shear value until manually reset. Particles of rock which passes through 4. The torque is then converted to a unit shearing resistance of the cylindrical surface 2d217.

Flat Grooving Tool 8. These technical experts represent producers, users, consumers, government and academia from over countries.
