1.1 This test method covers the laboratory determination of the fiber content of samples of peat (as defined in Classification D 4427) by dry mass. It also may be used for non-peat organic soil materials.
1.2 Because this test method is simple and requires no sophisticated equipment to perform, it is especially recommended for routine reconnaissance work, where large numbers of samples need to be tested and mineral contents are low.
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
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.
