- SIEVE ANALYSIS (ASTM D422, C136, C117):
ASTM D422 provides the distribution of particle-sizes in soils. This information is used to quantitatively classify soils, and assists in determining the engineering properties of soils.
ASTM C136 provides grading distribution of materials for use as aggregates. This information is used in the determination if materials meet specifications, or to assist in determining relationships concerning porosity and packing.
ASTM C-117 provides grading distribution of materials finer than 75-µm (No. 200).
- FINES CONTENT – NO. 200 (ASTM D1140):
Provides the amount of material finer than 75-µm through either a dry or wet-washing process. This information is important when determining the clay-size content of a material.
- ATTERBURG LIMITS (ASTM D4318):
Provides the liquid limit, plastic limit, and plasticity index of fine soils. This information has a wide use in engineering. Common uses include assisting in determining the engineering behaviors such as compressibility, hydraulic conductivity (permeability), compactibility, shrink-swell, and shear strength.
- ORGANIC CONTENT (ASTM D2974):
Provides the moisture, ash, and percent organic content in soil. This information can be used to determine soil suitability for building.
- CARBONATE CONTENT (ASTM D4373):
Provides the carbonate content of soils and soft rock. This information can be especially useful in Florida, when evaluating the potential for the dissolution of shallow Florida bedrock or near bedrock materials.
- MOISTURE CONTENT (ASTM D2216):
Provides the water (moisture) content of a material. This information is used to assist in the determination of a given soil types consistency, and is often used in conjunction with ASTM D4318.
