Not all water contained in a saturated soil can be removed by gravity drainage. The amount of water retained after gravity drainage is usually expressed as water holding capacity or specific... View More

scope:

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

1.2 This test method is limited to disturbed specimens of coarse-grained soils having fines of low plasticity such as SP, SW, SC-SM, or SM soils. The test is limited to soils passing the 2.00-mm sieve or that fraction of a soil passing a 2.00-mm sieve.

Note 1-Test Method D 3152 or Test Method D 2325 should be used to evaluate the capillary-moisture relations of fine-grained soils and coarse-grained soils having fines of medium to high plasticity, undisturbed soils, and soils at specific desired units weights.

1.3 The test method is temperature-dependent, and consistent comparable results can be obtained only if the tests are performed under a constant-temperature condition.

1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.

1.5 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.
