Laboratory Determination of Water (Moisture) Content of Soil and Rock by Mass

ASTM Standard: D-2216

Most laboratory tests in soil mechanics require determination of the water content.

Specific Gravity of Soil Solids by Water Pycnometer

ASTM Standard: D-854 , C-157

The specific gravity of a given material is defined as the ratio of the density of a given volume of the material to the density of an equal volume of distilled water. In soil mechanics, the specific gravity of soil solids (which is often referred to as the specific gravity of soil) is an important parameter for calculating the weight–volume relationship.

Sieve Analysis

ASTM Standard: D-422

In order to classify a soil for engineering purposes, one needs to know the distribution of the grain sizes in a given soil mass. Sieve analysis is a method used to determine the grain size distribution of soils.

Hydrometer Analysis

ASTM: Standard: D-422

Hydrometer analysis is the procedure generally adopted for determining the particle-size distribution in a soil for the fraction that is finer than U.S. No. 200 sieve size (0.075 mm).

Liquid Limit

ASTM Standard: D-4318

When a cohesive soil is mixed with an excessive amount of water, it will be in a somewhat liquid state and flow like a liquid. However, when this viscous liquid is dried gradually, with the loss of moisture, it will pass into a plastic state. With further reduction of moisture, the soil will pass into a semisolid and then into a solid state…

Engineering Classification of Soils (AASHTO, USCS)

ASTM Standard: D-3282, D-2487

Soils vary widely in their grain-size distributions . Also, depending on the type and quantity of clay minerals present, the plastic properties of soils  may be very different. Various types of engineering work require the identification and classification of soil in the field.

Proctor Compaction (Standard, Modified)

ASTM Standard: D-698, D-1557

For the construction of highways, airports, and other structures, it is often necessary to compact soil to improve its strength.

Direct Shear

ASTM Standard: D-3080

The shear strength of a given soil can be expressed by Mohr-Coulomb failure criteria.

Constant head permeability

ASTM Standard: D-2424

The rate of flow of water through a soil specimen of gross cross-sectional area A can be expressed as: q = kiA

Falling head permeability

The falling-head permeability test is another experimental procedure to determine the coefficient of permeability of sand.

Unconfined compression

ASTM Standard: D-2166

The unconfined compression strength is determined by applying an axial stress to a cylindrical soil specimen with no confining pressure and observing the axial strains corresponding to various stress levels. The stress at which failure in the soil specimen occurs is referred to as the unconfined compression strength


ASTM Standard: D-2435

When a saturated compressible clay layer is subjected to a stress increase, elastic settlement occurs immediately. Since the coefficient of permeability of clay is significantly smaller than that of granular soil, the excess pore water pressure generated due to loading gradually dissipates over a long period of time. Thus the associated volume change (that is, the consolidation) in clay soils may continue long after the elastic settlement is complete.
