Active Risk Management

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. Asgm practice discusses some aspects of sample preservation after the sampling event. Tubes of thicker gauge may be requested when re-use is anticipated see 6.

This practice discusses some aspects of sample preservation after the sampling event.

Typical sizes of thin-walled tubes are shown on Table 1. Disturbance will result in errors in accurate determination of both yield stress 5. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard.

Not all aspects of this practice may be applicable in all circumstances. Figure 2 shows the standard sampler with a ball check valve in the head, which is used in fluid rotary drilled holes.

One variation is a Bishop-type thin-walled sampler that is capable of holding a vacuum on the sampler to improve recovery 12. X1587 is because once the core is in contact with the steel tube, there are galvanic reactions between the tube and the soil which aztm cause the annulus core to harden with time. The piston sampler Practice D uses a thin-walled tube.

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.

This document cannot replace education or experience and should be used in conjunction with professional judgment.

Use in very stiff and hard clays with insertion by driving or hammering cannot provide an intact sample. Very stiff asmt 4 generally require use of rotary soil core barrels Practice DGuide D It is common practice to extrude or remove the soil core either in the field or at the receiving laboratory immediately upon receipt. The push equipment should provide a smooth continuous vertical push. Gravelly soils x1587 be sampled and gravel will damage the thin-walled tubes.


Extruded cores can be preserved by encasing the cores in plastic wrap, tin foil, and then microcrystalline wax to preserve moisture. It is not possible to buy in the shop – please contact us. Tubes with a diameter of 2 in. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
