Disturbance will result in errors in accurate determination of both yield stress 5. Sands ast, much more difficult to penetrate and may require use of smaller diameter tubes. The one to two week period is just guideline typically used in practice.

For information on appropriate use of other soil samplers refer to D This design was used to recover sand samples that tend to run out of the tube with sampler withdraw. This practice discusses some aspects of sample preservation after the sampling event. Cutting edge angles of up to 20 to 30 degrees have been used in stiffer formations in order to avoid damage to the cutting edges. Unconsolidated undrained tests are more reliable but can still suffer from disturbance problems.

Proper lengths to be determined as suited to field conditions. One variation is a Bishop-type thin-walled sampler that is capable of holding a vacuum on the sampler to improve recovery 12.

If tubes are for re-use, soil cores must be extruded quickly within a few days since damage to any inside coatings is inevitable in multiple re-use. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.

Reliable results depend on many factors; Practice D provides a means of evaluating some of those factors. It is the responsibility asrm the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. This practice provides guidance on proper sampling equipment, procedures, and sample quality evaluation that are used to obtain intact samples suitable for laboratory testing.


Active view current version of standard. It is common practice to extrude or remove the soil core either in the field or at the receiving laboratory immediately upon receipt. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other.

See Appendix X1 for recommended techniques. Typical sizes of thin-walled tubes are shown on Table 1. Astj information on appropriate use of other soil samplers refer to Practice D Please choose number of devices you want to open the document on.

However, if this practice is used properly, soil samples suitable for laboratory testing can be procured.

Any drilling method that ensures the base of the borehole is intact and that the borehole walls are stable may be used.

ASTM D – 00 Standard Practice for Thin-Walled Tube Sampling of Soils for Geotechnical Purposes

Such samplers include driven split r1587 samplers and soil coring devices Test Methods DDand Aztm D This document cannot replace education or experience and should be used in conjunction with professional judgment. Advanced tests, such as consolidated, undrained triaxial compression Test Method D testing, coupled with one dimensional consolidation tests Test Methods D and D are performed for better understanding the relationship between stress history and the strength and compression characteristics of the soil as described by Ladd and Degroot, 4.

If samples are taken in uncased boreholes d15877 cores should be inspected for any sidewall contamination. The tubes are also usually supplied with a machine-beveled inside cutting edge which provides the Clearance Ratio C r. The piston sampler Practice D uses a thin-walled tube. Piston samplers in Practice D use thin-walled tubes.


Softer formations may require sharper cutting angles of 5 to 10 degrees, however, sharp angles may be easily damaged in deeper borings. Extruded cores can be preserved by encasing the cores in plastic wrap, tin foil, and then microcrystalline wax to preserve moisture.

Such samplers include driven split barrel samplers and soil d5187 devices D, D, and D Wall thickness may be changed 5. Longer time periods may be allowed depending on logistics and the asm assurance requirements of the exploration plan. Continue shopping Proceed to checkout.

The push equipment should provide a smooth continuous vertical push. Tubes with a diameter d158 2 in.

Activation of monitoring failed – please try again later or contact atsm. Samples that must be obtained by driving should be labeled as such to avoid any advanced laboratory testing for engineering properties. Use in very stiff and hard clays with insertion by driving or hammering cannot provide an intact sample.

Soil samples inside the tubes can be readily evaluated for disturbance or other features such as presence of fissures, inclusions, layering or voids using X-ray radiography D if facilities are available.
