The ASTM Committee D18.02 on Sampling and Related Field Testing for Soil Investigation, with Mr. Ralph Brown as Chairman, requested that this proposed Standard Method be published herein to provide exposure and to solicit comments from users. The objective is to improve its accuracy, usefulness, and acceptability, when in the future, Committee D18.02 hopes to submit it for publication in the ASTM Book of Standards. Comments should be sent to John H. Schmertmann, Chairman Committee D18.02.10. The Committee will consider all critical comments that include specific suggestions for improving the accuracy, usefulness, or acceptability of the proposed method.
