    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the determination of the compressive strength of soil-cement using molded cylinders as test specimens.

    1.2 Two alternative procedures are provided as follows:

    1.2.1 Method A -This procedure uses a test specimen 4.0 in. (101.6 mm) in diameter and 4.584 in. (116.4 mm) in height. Height to diameter ratio equals 1.15.

    1.2.2 Method B -This procedure uses a test specimen 2.8 in. (71.1 mm) in diameter and 5.6 in. (142.2 mm) in height. Height to diameter ratio equals 2.00.

    1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The SI units in parentheses are for information only.

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
