English Imperial units are given in parentheses. It is important to check the soil type being tested. Knowledge of the nature of the soil in which each vane test is to be made is necessary for assessment of the applicability and interpretation of the test.

Some apparatuses have the asgm retracted in protective shoe for advancement and incremental testing. Subsurface geotechnical explorations are reported in accordance v2573 Practice D Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard.

ASTM D Standard

The test is asttm to soils with undrained strengths of less than kPa [2 tsf]. It is very beneficial to sample the soil either before or after testing, to understand the drainage conditions permeability of the soil tested.

The test is not applicable for sandy soils which may allow drainage during the test. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. It is beyond the d25773 of this standard to consider significant digits used in analytical methods for engineering design. Some apparatuses have the vane retracted in a protective shoe for advancement and incremental testing.

Knowledge of the nature of the soil in which each vane test is to be made is necessary e2573 assessment of the applicability and interpretation of the test. Sampling, such as with thin wall tubes D is often combined with vane testing. Subsurface asrm explorations are reported in accordance with practice D Since vane shear strength values are most always higher than field strengths d257 analyses 5.

In this system, the pound lbf represents a unit of force weightwhile the unit for mass is slugs. For information on the general use of these correction factors, consult Appendix X1. The quality of the result produced by this standard is dependent on the competence of the personnel performing it, and the suitability of the equipment and facilities used. The values in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other.

Users of this standard are cautioned that compliance with Practice D does not in itself assure reliable results.

ASTM D – 08 Standard Test Method for Field Vane Shear Test in Cohesive Soil

Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. Reliable results depend on many factors; Standard Practice D provides a means of evaluating some of those factors.

For more information on how these tests are used for soft ground site exploration refer to Ladd and DeGroot. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. It is beyond the scope of this standard to recommend applicability of vane testing for geotechnical analysis.

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. Reporting of test results in units other than SI shall not be regarded as nonconformance with this test method.

With the shearing rates described in this standard, sand lenses, if present, will allow total or partial drainage.

Agencies that meet the criteria of Practice D are generally considered capable of competent and objective testing. Unsaturated soils and soils with higher permeability, in rapid shear, can dilate or collapse and generate negative or positive pore pressures which may, or may not, dissipate in the shearing process.

astn This method does not address specifically marine testing where special test requirements or variations in equipment may be required. The test is not applicable for sandy soils or non-plastic silts, which may allow drainage during the test. Active view current version of standard.

In addition they are representative of the significant digits that generally should be retained. The agency requesting the testing must interpret these data to determine applicability for strength analysis. Historical Version s – view previous versions of d25773.

Very sensitive soils can be remolded during vane insertion.

It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
