For information on appropriate use of other soil samplers refer to D Samples that must be obtained by driving should be labeled as such to avoid any advanced laboratory testing for engineering properties.

Active Risk Management

Active view current version of standard. Users of this practice are cautioned that compliance with Practice D does not in itself ensure reliable results.

Subsurface geotechnical explorations should be reported in accordance with practice D If samples are c1587 in uncased boreholes the cores should be inspected for any sidewall contamination. 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 ast. Figure 2 shows the standard sampler with a ball check valve in the head, which is used in fluid rotary drilled holes.

A piston sampler Practice D must be used to ensure that there is no fluid or sidewall contamination that would enter an open sampling tube. 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.

For determination of undrained strength, unconfined compression or astmm, undrained triaxial compression tests are often used Test Methods D and D However, asmt this practice is used properly, soil samples suitable for laboratory testing can be procured.


Field extrusion and inspection of the soil core can also help evaluate sample quality. You must be logged in to sign up for monitoring You must be logged in to sign up for subscription. The one to two week period is just guideline typically used in practice. This practice provides guidance on proper sampling equipment, procedures, and sample quality evaluation that are used to obtain intact samples suitable for laboratory testing.

Low-plasticity silts can be sampled but in some cases below the water table they may not be held in the tube and a piston sampler may be astj to recover these soils.

Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. They are most often used in fluid rotary drill holes Guide D and holes using hollow-stem augers Practice D For more information on preservation and transportation process of soil samples, consult Practice D Are you sure you want to unsubscribe?

Not all aspects of this practice may be applicable in all circumstances. This sampling method is not recommended for sampling soils containing coarse sand, gravel, or larger size soil particles, cemented, or very hard soils. Use in very stiff and hard clays with insertion by driving or hammering cannot provide an intact sample.

The piston sampler Practice D uses a thin-walled tube. For softer or harder soils C r tubes may require special order from the supplier. One variation is a Bishop-type thin-walled sampler that is capable of holding a vacuum on the sampler to improve recovery 12. Continue shopping Proceed to checkout.


Such samplers include driven split barrel samplers and soil coring devices Test Methods DDand Practice D This document cannot replace education or experience and should be used in conjunction with professional judgment. It is not wstm to buy in the shop – please contact us.

Typical sizes of thin-walled tubes are shown on Table 1. This practice discusses some aspects of sample preservation after the sampling event. However, the piston samplers are designed to recover soft soils and low-plasticity soils and the thin-walled tubes used must be of lower C r of 0. Subsurface geotechnical astk should be reported wstm accordance with Practice D The sample depth of the sampler should coincide with the drilled depth.

Other soil samplers may be used for sampling these soil types. Not all aspects of this practice may be applicable in all circumstances. Lengths of tubes shown are illustrative.

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. There is a problem adding monitoring – please try again later There is a problem adding the subscription – please try again asm.

Agencies that meet the criteria of Practice D are generally considered capable of competent and objective sampling. This is because once the core is in contact with the steel tube, there are galvanic reactions between the tube and the soil which generally cause the annulus core to harden with time.
