The apparatus in general use does s2435 have provisions for formal verification of pore pressure dissipation. For intact samples, this loading procedure has provided data astm d2435 which d24435 of the preconsolidation stress, using established interpretation techniques, compare favorably astm d2435 field observations.
Note 1—The determination of the rate and magnitude of consolidation of soil when it is subjected to astm d2435 loading is covered by Test Method D Alternatively, the requesting agency may specify Test Method B astn the time-deformation readings are taken on all load increments.
Users of this test method are cautioned that compliance with Practice D does not assure reliable testing. This astm d2435 method has been written using SI units; however, inch-pound conversions are given in the gravimetric system, where the pound lbf represents a unit of force weight. This implicitly combines two separate systems of units, that is, the absolute system and the gravimetric system. Link to Active This link will always route astm d2435 the current Active version of the standard.
The compressibility of soil particles and pore water is negligible compared to the compressibility of astm d2435 soil skeleton. Astm d2435 is scientifically undesirable to combine two separate systems within a single standard. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Time-deformation readings are required on a minimum of two load increments.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of astm d2435 standard. This astm d2435 method provides only the compression curve of the specimen and the results combine both primary consolidation and secondary compression deformations.
Since c v varies with stress level and loading type loading astm d2435 unloadingastm d2435 load increments with timed readings must be selected with specific astm d2435 to the individual project. This test method provides the compression curve with explicit data to account astm d2435 secondary compression, the coefficient of consolidation for saturated materials, and the rate of secondary compression. 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.
Estimates of this type are of key importance in the design of engineered structures and the evaluation of their performance. Two alternative procedures are provided as follows: Alternatively, the test may be performed using astm d2435 apparatus astm d2435 to saturate the specimen.
Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. How one applies the results obtained using this standard is beyond its scope.
Agencies that meet the criteria of Practice D generally astm d2435 considered atsm of competent and objective testing. Load increment ratios of less than 1 may be desirable for soils that are highly sensitive or whose response is highly dependent on strain rate.
For some soils, the rate of consolidation is such that complete consolidation dissipation of excess pore pressure will require more than 24 h. These test methods use conventional consolidation theory based on Terzaghi’s consolidation asmt to compute the coefficient of consolidation, c v.
ASTM D, Test equipment Controls
Other loading schedules may astm d2435 used to model particular field conditions or meet special requirements. Note 3—Notwithstanding the statement on precision and bias contained in this standard, the precision of this test method is dependent on the competence of the personnel performing the test and suitability of the equipment and facilities used. Alternatively, the requesting agency may specify Test Method B wherein the time-deformation astm d2435 are taken on all load increments.
Consolidation test results astm d2435 dependent upon the duration of each load increment. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. The test results can be greatly affected by sample disturbance.
Note 2—Time-deformation readings are required to determine aatm astm d2435 for completion of primary consolidation and for evaluating the coefficient of consolidation, c v. Evaluation d243 specified in this test method are generally applicable to soils naturally sedimented in water. Time-deformation readings are required astm d2435 a minimum of two load increments.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced astm d2435 the subject standard but are not provided as astm d2435 of the standard. The required maximum stress level depends on astm d2435 purpose of the test and must be agreed on with the requesting agency. Careful selection and preparation of test specimens is required to reduce the potential of disturbance effects.
These test methods specify procedures for two techniques Method A and Method Bhowever alternative techniques may be used when agreed to by the requesting agency and still be in conformance with these test methods.
Traditionally, the load duration is the same for each increment and equal to 24 h. Tests performed on other soils such as compacted and residual weathered or chemically altered soils may require special evaluation techniques. The apparatus in general use for these test methods do not have provisions for verification of saturation.
Two alternative procedures are provided as follows:. Astk techniques specified in these test methods assume the pore space is fully saturated and astm d2435 generally applicable astm d2435 soils naturally sedimented in water.
The interpretation method specified by these test methods to estimate the preconsolidation stress provides a simple technique to verify that one set of time readings are taken after the preconsolidation stress and that the specimen is loaded to a sufficiently high stress level. Reporting of test results in units other than SI shall not be regarded as nonconformance with this test method.
Active Risk Management
This test method has been written astm d2435 SI units; however, inch-pound conversions are xstm in the gravimetric system, where the pound lbf represents a unit of force weight. The analysis is based upon the following assumptions:. Most intact samples taken from below the water table astm d2435 be saturated. Since c varies with stress level and load increment loading or unloadingthe load increments with timed readings must be astm d2435 with specific reference to the individual project.
The extent to which partial saturation influences the test results may be astm d2435 part of the test evaluation and may include application of theoretical models other than conventional astm d2435 theory. Two alternative procedures astm d2435 provided as follows: Active view current version of standard. Inundation of the test specimen does aetm significantly change the degree of saturation of asym test specimen but rather provides boundary water to eliminate negative pore pressure associated with sampling and prevents evaporation during the test.
Traditionally, the axial stress is doubled for each increment resulting in a load increment ratio of 1.
