Published date

1.1This test method covers the determination of the moisture equivalent of soil in the laboratory by means of a centrifuge technique.

1.2This test method is limited to specimens of coarse-grained sandy soils having a maximum particle size of less than 2.00 mm and with fines of low plasticity. Soils having a unified soil classification, based upon procedures outlined in Practice D2488 such as SP, SW, SC-SM, or SM are considered acceptable for the test method.

1.2.1For soils that are predominantly fine-grained, coarse-grained soils with medium to high plasticity, intact specimens or soils being tested at a specific density or unit weight refer to Test Methods D6836.

1.3This test method is intended to be performed in a constant temperature environment. Variations in temperature exceeding the range outlined in 8.7 may influence the test data.

1.4Units—The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard except for sieve designations, which also include the “alternative” system in accordance with E11.

1.5All recorded and calculated values shall conform to the guide for significant digits and rounding established in Practice D6026.

1.6The procedures used to specify how data are collected/recorded and calculated in this standard are regarded as the industry standard. In addition, they are representative of the significant digits that generally should be retained. The procedures used do not consider material variation, purpose for obtaining data, special purpose studies, or any considerations for the user’s objectives; and it is common practice to increase or reduce significant digits of reported data to commensurate with these considerations. It is beyond the scope of these test methods to consider significant digits used in analysis methods for engineering design.

1.7This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. 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.
