Methods of testing soil for engineering purposes, part A - general and sample preparation, AS 1289.A2-1977, preparation of disturbed soil samples for testing

Apparatus required for the preparation of disturbed soil samples for testing is stated. This is followed by sample preparation procedure for 1) determination of moisture content, 2) preliminary preparation of sample for soil classification, chemical, compaction and remoulded CBR tests, 3) determination of liquid limit, plastic limit and linear shrinkage, 4) determination of soil particle density, 5) soil chemical tests, 6) particle size distribution of a soil, 7) determination of dry density / moisture content relationship and california bearing ratio.
