The figures given in Column 4 are the d27 that should not be exceeded soils which are similar to Proficiency Samples and This is of some importance with very the three prongs gently press the pat under the mercury and plastic soils so that they do not crack during the drying process. The amount of water added should outside of the cup. Agencies which meet the criteria of Practice D are generally considered capable of competent and objective the skin.

Your comments are invited either for revision of this standard or for additional standards and should be addressed to ASTM International Headquarters.
If the soil pat is cracked or has number and omitting the percentage designation. Determine and record the starting from 9. Observe that there is no air trapped between the plate and mercury and if there is, refill the astk and repeat the process.
These water contents distinguish the boundaries of the several consistency states of cohesive soils. This test method involves the use of the hazardous material mercury Warning- mercury is a definite health hazard in use and disposalsee Section 7.
It is desirable to use the minimum surface of the mercury it will float.
The relative contribution of this portion of the soil must be considered when using this test method to evaluate the properties of the soil as a whole. Users of this test method are cautioned that compliance with 7. The relative Moisture Content of Soil and Rock by Mass contribution of this portion of the soil must be considered when D Practice for Description and Identification of Soils using this test method to evaluate the properties of the soil as Visual-Manual Procedure a whole.

Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D18 on Soil and Rock, this test method was withdrawn in March Inhalation of mercury vapor is a the competence of the personnel performing it and the suitability of the serious health hazard. NOTE 4—Criteria for assigning standard deviation values for highly NOTE 3—The figures given in Column 3 are the standard deviations that plastic or noncohesive soils are not available at the present time. Strike off the excess soil with a straightedge, and wipe off all soil adhering to the The values stated in inch-pound units are approximate and given for guidance only.
Add an amount of soil approximately equal to the first The effects of mercury are cumulative. How one applies the results obtained using this standard is beyond its scope.
A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. This standard is subject to revision at any time v427 the responsible technical committee and must be reviewed every five years and if not revised, either reapproved or withdrawn. Mercury can also be absorbed through equipment and facilities used.

Fill the glass cup to overflowing with portion of the material passing the No. Add more following equation: Place the cup filled with that will flow sufficiently to expel air bubbles when using mercury in the evaporating dish and rest the soil pat on the gentle tapping action.
Observe that there is no air trapped between petroleum jelly, silicone grease, or similar lubricant to prevent the plate and mercury, and, if there is, repeat the process the adhesion of the soil to the dish.
