Wall thickness may be changed 5. For more information on preservation and transportation process of soil samples, consult Practice D This wstm discusses some aspects of sample preservation after the sampling event.

Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. Low-plasticity silts can be sampled but in some cases below asrm water table they may not be held in the tube and a piston sampler may be required to recover these soils. Lengths of tubes shown are illustrative.

Cutting edge angles of up to 20 to 30 degrees have been used in stiffer formations in asm to avoid damage to the cutting edges. It was not possible to unsubscribe – please try again later or contact d587 Danish Standard Please make sure you are logged in. The tubes are also usually supplied with a machine-beveled inside cutting edge which provides the Clearance Ratio C r. The tubing tolerances presented in are from sources available in North America. Typical sizes of thin-walled tubes are shown on Table 1.


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.

Not all aspects of this practice may be applicable in all circumstances. The sample depth of the sampler should coincide with the drilled depth. 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.

If samples are taken in uncased boreholes the cores should be inspected for any sidewall contamination. Tubes of thicker gauge may be requested when re-use is anticipated see 6. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as s1587 of the standard. It is common practice to extrude or remove the soil core either in the field or at the receiving laboratory immediately upon receipt.

Samples that must be obtained by driving should be labeled as such to avoid any advanced laboratory testing for engineering properties. The piston sampler Practice D uses a thin-walled tube. Mixed soils with sands can be sampled but the presence of coarse sands and gravels may cause soil core disturbance and tube damage.

Piston samplers in Practice D use thin-walled tubes.

ASTM D – 00 Standard Practice for Thin-Walled Tube Sampling of Soils for Geotechnical Purposes

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. Consolidation test specimens are generally larger diameter than r1587 for strength testing and larger diameter soil cores may be required.

Agencies such as the U. Advanced tests, such as consolidated, undrained triaxial compression Test Method D testing, coupled with one dimensional consolidation tests Test Methods D and D are awtm for better understanding the relationship between stress history and the strength and compression characteristics of the soil as described by Ladd and Degroot, 4.


Agencies that meet the criteria qstm Practice D are generally f1587 capable of competent and objective sampling. 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. The word “Standard” in the title of this document means only that the document has been approved through the ASTM consensus process. This practice discusses some aspects of sample preservation after the sampling event.

Use in very stiff and hard clays with insertion by driving or hammering cannot provide an intact sample. Such samplers include driven split barrel samplers and soil coring devices D, D, and D In cases where the soil is very weak, it may be required to cut sections of the tube to remove soil cores for laboratory testing.

Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. There are also possible microbial reactions caused by temporary exposure to air.

The SI values given in parentheses are provided for information purposes only. Very stiff clays 4 generally require use of rotary soil core barrels Practice DGuide D Do not show this again.

This practice provides guidance on proper sampling equipment, procedures, and sample quality evaluation that are used to obtain intact samples suitable for laboratory testing.
