Some highly plastic clay soils or other soils not friable enough to break up may not produce representative results because some of the water may be trapped inside soil clods or clumps which cannot come in contact with the reagent. Some soils containing compounds or minerals that dehydrate with heat such as gypsum which are to have special temperature control with Test Method D may not be affected dehydrated in this test method. Link to Active This adtm will always route to the current Active version of the 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.

Any such problem will become evident as calibration or check tests with Test Method D are made. Test Method D is to be used as the test method to compare for accuracy checks and correction. Therefore, other methods may be more appropriate when highly accurate results are required, or when the use of test results is sensitive to minor variations in the values obtained.

Calcium carbide, used as a reagent, reacts with water as it is mixed with the soil by shaking and agitating with the aid of steel balls in the apparatus. Inaccuracies may result because specimens are too small to properly represent the total soil, from clumps of soil not breaking up to expose all the available water to the reagent and from other inherent procedural, equipment or process inaccuracies.

A measurement is made of the gas pressure produced when a asstm mass of wet or moist soil is placed in a testing device with an appropriate volume of reagent and mixed. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

ASTM D4944

Some highly plastic clay soils or other soils not friable enough to break up may not produce representative results because some of the water may be trapped inside soil clods or d49444 which cannot come in contact with the reagent.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems associated with its use. Users of this standard are cautioned that compliance with Practice D does not in itself ensure reliable results. Test Method D is to be used as the test method to compare for accuracy checks and correction.

For specific hazards statements, see Section 7. Some soils containing compounds or minerals that dehydrate with heat such as gypsum which are to have special temperature control with Test Method D may not be affected dehydrated in this test method.

Any such problem will become evident as calibration or check tests with Test Method D are satm.

Reliable results depend on many factors; Practice D provides a means of evaluating some of those factors. This test method is used for these occasions. A measurement is made of the gas pressure produced when a specified mass of wet or moist soil is placed in a testing device with an appropriate volume of reagent and mixed. Calcium carbide, used as a reagent, reacts with water as it is mixed with the soil by shaking and agitating with the aid of steel balls in the apparatus.

There may be some soils containing certain compounds or chemicals that will react unpredictably with the reagent and give erroneous results. Active view current version of standard. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. The quality of the result produced by this standard is dependent on the competence of the personnel performing it, and the suitability of the equipment and facilities used. In addition they are representative of the significant digits that generally should be retained.

Results are sometimes needed within a short time period and in locations where it is not practical to install an oven or to transport samples to an oven.

There may be some soils containing certain compounds or chemicals that will react unpredictably with the reagent and give erroneous results. To produce accurate results, the reagent must react with all the water which is not chemically hydrated with soil minerals or compounds in the soil.

To produce accurate results, the reagent must react with all the water which is not chemically hydrated with soil minerals or compounds in the soil.
