    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    CONTAINED IN VOL. 10.01, 2017 Defines electrical insulating tape consisting of a flexible backing made from vinyl chloride plastic coated on one side with a pressure-sensitive adhesive.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1 This test method covers determination of the strength and stress-strain relationships of a cylindrical specimen of either undisturbed or remolded cohesive soil. Specimens are subjected to a confining fluid pressure in a triaxial chamber. No drainage of the specimen is permitted during the test. The specimen is sheared in compression without drainage at a constant rate of axial deformation (strain controlled).

    1.2 This test method provides data for determining undrained strength properties and stress-strain relations for soils. This test method provides for the measurement of the total stresses applied to the specimen, that is, the stresses are not corrected for pore-water pressure.

    Note 1

    The determination of the unconfined compressive strength of cohesive soils is covered by Test Method D 2166.

    Note 2

    The determination of the consolidated, undrained strength of cohesive soils with pore pressure measurement is covered by Test Method D 4767.

    1.3 All observed and calculated values shall conform to the guidelines for significant digits and rounding established in Practice D 6026.

    1.3.1 The method used to specify how data are collected, calculated, or recorded in this standard is not directly related to the accuracy to which the data can be applied in design or other uses, or both. How one applies the results obtained using this standard is beyond its scope.

    1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values stated in inch-pound units and given in parentheses are approximate.

    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.
