METHDS OF TEST FOR SOILS FOR CIVIL ENGINEERING PURPOSES. PART 9: IN-SITU TESTS

This part of BS 1377 has been prepared under the direction of the Road Engineering Standards Policy Committee. It describes in situ methods of test on soils for civil engineering purposes. The methods are arranged in groups either according to the purposes of the test or the mode of execution. These groups are as follows: a) 5 tests to determine density, which include the sand replacement methods (both the small and large pouring cylinder methods), the water replacement method, the core cutter method, and nuclear methods suitable for fine, medium and coarse grained soils; b) penetration tests, including the static cone penetration test, the dynamic probing test, and the standard penetration test; c) vertical deformation and strength tests, including the plate loading test, the shallow pad maintained load test, the in situ California Bearing Ratio, and the vane shear strength; d) corrosivity tests, including tests for the apparent resistivity of soil, and the redox potential. For abstracts of parts 1,3,5, and 9 see IRRD nos 830334, 830335, 829737 and 8310889.
