    Revision of D6913 / D6913M - 17 Standard Test Methods for Particle-Size Distribution (Gradation) of Soils Using Sieve Analysis

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: D6913 / D6913M - 17

    Developed by Subcommittee: D18.03 | Committee D18 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK77337


    Keywords

    gradation; grain size; particle size; particle-size distribution; sieve analysis; sieving;;

    Rationale

    The primary purpose of this revision is to provide a connection between the sieve analysis performed using D6913 and the sedimentation analysis performed using D7928. The revision will provide the equations necessary to integrate the results. In addition, the standard will be revised to clarify the option to determine the dry mass using a moist mass measurement and companion water content.
