This standard deals with the equipment requirements, execution and reporting of field vane tests for the measurement of peak and remoulded vane shear strength together with the sensitivity of fine-grainded soils. In addition, post-peak shear strength behavior can be evaluated. Two types of field vane test are described; the ordinary field vane test (FVT) and the fast field vane test (FVT-F).
The uncertainties of the vane test result are described in Annex C.
