Check for the hygroscopic moisture. Significance of the test: Particles of rock which passes through 4. Insert the blade of the vane into the sample atleast two times the height of the vane blade to ensure that the blade is completely embedded in the sample.

Active Risk Management

The TORVANE is a asstm vane shear device for rapid determination of shear strength in cohesive soils either in the laboratory or the field. There are two ways of preparing the sample. The amount of the s2217 sample should be enough to perform the required tests. Separate the sample as the particles retained and particles passing through a No. Enter the email address you signed up with and we’ll r2217 you a reset link. By placing the palm on top of the cylinder turn it upside down for about a min.


Further it is classified as: Pointer will indicate maximum shear value until manually reset. Take reading after the sample has failed. Flat Grooving Tool 8. This is done for different blows ranging between 15 to 35 blows. This is the method covers the quantitative determination of the distribution of the particles.

Soil passing through 75 m sieve that can exhibit plasticity putty like structure within d2127 range of water contents and exhibits strength with air dry. Water Bath or a constant temperature room 8. Repeat on the duplicate sample.

Basic Laboratory Testing of Soils | Sravan Muguda Viswanath –

The soil is then taken into the cup such that the surface is parallel to the horizontal. Mortar and Rubber-Covered Pestle 3.

Click here to sign up. Break Up the aggregations of the particles by a suitable device 3.

There are two methods to find out the specific gravity of the specimen Method A: Procedure for the Oven-Dry Specimens. It may also be used on the ends of thin wall or split spoon samples and soil d217 removed from test pits, etc. This particular ASTM code explains the procedure for preparing the soils for the tests.


The material retained on the No. The lid used should be removed while keeping in the oven, if it is used. Note the temperature each time. Remember me on this computer.

The material retained on No. Procedure for the Moist Specimens. The torque is then converted to a unit shearing resistance of the cylindrical surface area. ASTM Ast, gives a guidelines for particle size analysis. D22117 Size analysis gives a clear picture of the distribution of the particles of different sizes in the soil.

This is preferred method. The choice of the preparation method depends on the properties of the soil.
