    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covers establishing the moisture-penetration resistance relationships of fine-grained soils as determined by the soil penetrometer.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D18 on Soil and Rock, this test method was withdrawn in January 2019 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers establishing the moisture-penetration resistance relationships of fine-grained soils as determined by the soil penetrometer.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

    1.3 All observed and calculated values shall conform to the guidelines for significant digits and rounding established in Practice D6026.

    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.
