    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covers the determination of the direct tensile strength of intact cylindrical rock specimens.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D18 on Soil and Rock, this test method was withdrawn in January 2017 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the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 the determination of the direct tensile strength of intact cylindrical rock specimens.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values provided in parenthesis are for information only.

    1.3 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.
