This test method covers the determination of long- term strength and
deformation of a cylindrical
specimen of either a (undisturbed) field sample or
NOTE 1 - The voids of chemical grouted soils are most often substantially filled with grout. Thus, pore pressures are unlikely to develop. This test method is not applicable to partially grouted soils in which substantial pore pressures may develop. If pore pressures must be measured, reference is made to Test Method D 4767 for equipment and procedures.
This test method provides data useful in determining strength and deformation properties of chemical grouted soils subjected to sustained loads. Mohr strength envelopes may also be determined.
The determination of strength envelopes and the development of relationships to aid in interpreting and evaluating test results are left to the engineer or office requesting the test.
The values stated in either SI or inch-pound units shall be regarded separately as standard. The values in each system may not be exact equivalents, therefore, each system must be used independently of the other, without combining values in any way.
