ASTM WK24695

    Revision of D4609 - 08 Standard Guide for Evaluating Effectiveness of Admixtures for Soil Stabilization

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D4609 - 08

    Developed by Subcommittee: D18.15 | Committee D18 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    The standard needs a comprehensive review to insure that it includes best engineering practices to evaluate the performance of an increasingly wide range of soil admixtures appearing on the market.


    admixture screening; Harvard apparatus; liquid limit; moisture content; moisture-density; particle size; plastic limit; plasticity index; soil stabilization; unconfined compressive strength; volume change; Admixtures (soil); Chemical analysis--soil/rock/related materials; Chemical-resistant materials/products; Chemicals (environmental analysis); Compression testing--soil; Harvard apparatus; Liquid limit of soil; Moisture-density (MD) relationships; Particle analysis--soil; Plasticity index; Soil; Soil-moisture analysis; Soil stabilization; Specimen preparation (for testing)--soil; Unconfined compressive strength (UCS); Volumetric measurement--soil/related materials;
