ASTM WK69707

    Revision of D4506 - 13e1 Standard Test Method for Determining In Situ Modulus of Deformation of Rock Mass Using Radial Jacking Test

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D4506 - 13e1

    Developed by Subcommittee: D18.12 | Committee D18 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK69707


    Keywords

    discontinuities; in situ stress; loading tests; radial jacking test; rock; pressure;

    Rationale

    This standard is rapidly reaching the end of the eight-year and needs to be reapproved. Other than revising for any new caveats, format updates, and D18.91 reviews not much else is foreseen. However, new and younger members that have joined since this standard was last approved may find things that were missed or need to be updated. However, this test is very expensive, also in ISRM suggested methods, and maybe not done much or any more and maybe should be considered for withdrawal.
