ASTM WK53091

    Revision of D4404 - 10 Standard Test Method for Determination of Pore Volume and Pore Volume Distribution of Soil and Rock by Mercury Intrusion Porosimetry

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D4404 - 10

    Developed by Subcommittee: D18.06 | Committee D18 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    This standard is due for review and possible revision, particularly to address safety aspects for the use of mercury for materials characterization. If revision is necessary, a full rationale will be developed.
