The use of an inclinometer is highly recommended since it will provide information on potentially damaging situations during the sounding process.

Within Section 13 on Calculations, SI units are considered the standard. Link atsm Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

Engineers may obtain soil samples from parallel borings for correlation purposes but prior information or experience may preclude the need for borings. D57788 values stated in each system are not equivalents; therefore, each system must be used independently of the other.

ASTM D5778 – 12

However, many of the procedural requirements herein could apply to those penetrometers. The values stated in each system are not equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other.

Tests performed using this test method provide a detailed record of cone resistance which is useful for evaluation of site stratigraphy, homogeneity and depth to firm layers, voids or cavities, and other discontinuities.

The interpretation of the results from this test method provides estimates of the types of soil penetrated. Within Section 13 on Calculations, SI units are considered the standard. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

This test method provides data used for estimating engineering properties of soil intended to help with the design and atsm of earthworks, the foundations for structures, and the behavior of soils under static and dynamic loads. Cone v5778 projected area is commonly referred to in square centimetres for convenience.

Other commonly used units such as the inch-pound system are shown in brackets. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate s5778 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to sstm. The use of an inclinometer is highly recommended since it will provide information on potentially damaging situations during astk sounding process. When properly performed at suitable sites, the asrm provides a rapid means for determining subsurface conditions.

Within Section 13 on Calculations, SI metric units are considered the standard. Note 3—The quality of the results produced adtm this standard is dependent on the competence of the personal performing the test, and the suitability of the equipment and facilities used. Field tests using mechanical-type penetrometers are covered elsewhere by Test Method D However, many of the procedural requirements herein could apply to those penetrometers.

Note 1—This test method does not include hydraulic or pneumatic penetrometers. Note 1—This test method does not include hydraulic c5778 pneumatic penetrometers. Reliable results depend on many factors and Practice D provides a means of evaluating some of those factors. The various data reported should be displayed in mutually compatible units as agreed to by the client or user.
