Larger size particles can be tested; however, care must be taken because of the increased chance of particle shattering. Active view current version of standard.

Therefore, the procedure recommended in this test f4643 is meant to serve as a guide when using the microwave oven. The behavior of a soil, when subjected to microwave energy, is dependent on its mineralogical compositions, and as a result no one procedure is applicable for all types of soil.

This test method is best suited for minus 4 sized material. This is especially important if the water content will be used to calculate other relationships such as moist mass to dry mass or vice versa, wet unit weight to dry unit weight or vice versa, and total density to dry density or vice versa.

Some microwave ovens have settings at less than full power, which can also be used to reduce overheating. For Individuals d464 needing special assistance for disabilities or limited English proficiency Please contact our Title VI specialist at Soil testing Back to Results Print.

It is then placed in a microwave oven, subjected to an interval of drying, and removed from the oven and its new mass is determined.

The ast, objection to the use of the microwave oven for water content determination has been the possibility of overheating the soil and obtaining erroneous results.

Degregation of individual particles may occur, along with vaporization or chemical transition. Note 1-Notwithstanding statements of precision and bias contained in this standard, the precision of this test method is dependent on the competence of the personnel performing it and the suitability of the equipment and facilities used. Reliable testing depends on many factors; Practice D provides a means of evaluating some of those factors.

Active Risk Management

Soil testing Lab Services: For some soils, such as those containing significant amounts of halloysite, mica, montmorillonite, gypsum or other hydrated materials, highly organic soils, or soils in which the pore water contains dissolved solids such as salt in the case of marine depositsthis test method may not yield reliable water content values.

It is therefore recommended that samples used in this test method not be used for other tests subsequent to drying. For some soils, such as those containing significant amounts of halloysite, mica, montmorillonite, gypsum or satm hydrated materials, highly organic soils, or soils in which the pore water contains dissolved solids such as salt v4643 the case of marine depositsthis test method may not yield reliable water content values.

Reliable results depend on many factors; Practice D provides a means of evaluating some of those factors. For example, if four significant digits are required in any of the above calculations, then the water content has to be recorded to the nearest 0.

It is beyond the scope of this standard to consider significant digits used in analysis methods for engineering design.

Larger size particles can be tested; however, care must be taken because of the increased chance of particle shattering.

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. This method may not be appropriate when highly accurate results are required. Agencies that meet the criteria of Practice D are generally considered capable of competent and objective testing. This occurs since 1 plus the water content not in percent will have four significant digits regardless of what the value of the water content is; that is, 1 plus 0.

Users of this test method are cautioned that compliance with Practice D does not in itself ensure reliable results. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. This method is used for occasions when a more expedient method is desirable for water content determinations. The use of a microwave oven is one such method.

For example, if four significant digits are required in any of the above calculations, then the water content has to be recorded to the nearest 0. While not eliminating this possibility, the incremental drying procedure described in this test method will minimize its effects. In addition, they are representative of the significant digits that generally should be retained.

Agencies that meet the criteria of Practice D are generally considered capable of competent and objective testing. Users of this test method are cautioned that compliance with Practice D does not in itself ensure reliable testing. For more information, contact: Request Quote Client Login.

The use of Test Method D for water content determination can be time consuming and there are occasions when a more expedient method is desirable.
