ASTM WK63917

    Reinstatement of D2434 - 68(2006) Standard Test Method for Permeability of Granular Soils (Constant Head) (Withdrawn 2015)

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D18.04 | Committee D18 | Contact Staff Manager


    Because ASTM D2434 is widely used in practice, its withdrawal has caused issues with practitioners who include this test in design specifications. Although Subcommittee ASTM D18.04 is working on developing a new standard his standard on constant head permeameter testing of coarse grained soils (WK 42549) that addresses issues identified with ASTM D2434, the old version of ASTM D2434 is being balloted for reinstatement without technical or editorial changes as a stop-gap measure until a new standard is approved.
