    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covers the determination of the lime content of soil-lime mixtures sampled from a project under construction or at the pug-mill, or both.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D18 on Soil and Rock, this test method was withdrawn in April 2020 in accordance with section 10.6.3 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the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 lime content of soil-lime mixtures sampled from a project under construction or at the pug-mill, or both.

    1.2 In soils with highly variable amounts of CaCo3 (such as caliche), it may be difficult to obtain a representative sample.

    1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values stated in inch-pound units are provided for information only.

    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.
