ASTM WK73989

Revision of D2434-19 Standard Test Method for Permeability of Granular Soils (Constant Head)


None Provided


The subcommittee engaged in drafting a new coarse-grained hydraulic conductivity standard starting in 2012. These efforts were performed under WK42449 and were performed with the intent of establishing a new standard and then subsequently allowing ASTM D2434-68 to elapse as a standard. In 2019 balloting action was taken in order to reinstate ASTM D2434-68 with editorial changes noting that efforts from WK42449 would be utilized in the subsequent revision of ASTM D2434. The purpose of this revision is the incorporation of the technical revisions to date as noted during the reinstatement effort and to preserve the D2434 test designation given its incorporation into the profession.
