Geotechnical Engineering Standards

    ASTM's geotechnical engineering standards are instrumental in specifying, testing, and investigating the physical/mechanical properties and characteristic behaviors of surface and subsurface earth materials that are relevant to a construction project. Such earth materials include soil, dimension stones, slate, soil-cement mixtures, ground water, bituminous geomembranes, slurry, rock mass, aquifers, and geotextiles. These geotechnical engineering standards allow engineering firms and construction companies to examine the elastic characteristics, flow, and erosion behavior of the said earth materials to ensure safety and prevent unforeseen hazards related to the erection of civil structures.
