ASTM WK47135

    Revision of D2113 - 08 Standard Practice for Rock Core Drilling and Sampling of Rock for Site Investigation

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D2113 - 14

    Developed by Subcommittee: D18.02 | Committee D18 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    comment on sections 2.1 and 5.1 that needed to be included and not having time to go back to sub-ballot only and risk passing the deadline to reapprove by the end of the year. The issue that was added was that standard D420 has been withdrawn so the reference needs to be removed. Furthermore, I added one sub-ballot comment by Gale since it was also in one of the sections, 5.1, added to the ballot. This ballot are in sections 2.1, 5.1 6.1, 7.1, 9.4.1, 9.13, 9.14, 9.15, 9.16 and 10. Any place where the word investigation was found it was changed to exploration as required by ASTM D18.
