Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 1 October 2008
Status: inactive
Page Count: 9
ICS Code (Earthworks. Excavations. Foundation construction. Underground works): 93.020
scope:

These test methods cover three alternative laboratory methods for measuring free swell, swell pressure, and the magnitude of one-dimensional swell or collapse of compacted or intact cohesive soils.

NOTE 1-Refer to Sections 4, 5, 6 and 13.8 to determine the best method for a particular application.

The test methods can be used to measure the magnitude of one-dimensional wetting-induced swell or collapse (hydrocompression) under different vertical (axial) pressures, as well as the magnitude of swell pressure and the magnitude of free swell. It can also be used to obtain data for stress-induced compression following wetting-induced swell or collapse.

The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values stated in inch-pound units are approximate.

All measured and calculated values shall conform to the guidelines for significant digits and rounding established in Practice D 6026.

The method used to specify how data are collected, calculated, or recorded in this standard is not directly related to the accuracy to which the data can be applied in design or other uses. How one applies the results obtained using this standard is beyond its scope.

This 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.

*A Summary of Changes section appears at the end of this standard.
