ASTM D Wide-Width Tensile Test Equipment for Geotextiles
A low force range may be used to establish the point of the applied pretension force on the force? Measure the force and the corresponding elongation with respect to the force axis. By comparing, it can be determined if slippage is occuring in the clamps. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard.
Users of this standard are expressly advised that determination of the validity of any such patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, are entirely their own responsibility. This test indicated that additional clari? A time of at least 24 h has been found acceptable in most cases. At any point on this tangent line, measure the force and the corresponding elongation with respect to the zero force axis. Among the options available to the purchaser and the supplier is for the purchaser to accept certi?
Likewise, label a second point, P1 at a speci? In any event, the procedure described in Section 10 of this test method for obtaining wide-width strip tensile strength must be maintained. NOTE 2—For geotextiles which shrink excessively when wet, cut the test specimens for obtaining wet tensile strength longer in dimension than that for dry tensile strength. Competent statistical assistance is recommended for the investigation of bias. The test specimens should then be randomly assigned in equal numbers to each laboratory for testing.
In any event, the strain rate described in Have a question about conducting the test for this standard? Specimen clamping may be modi? When this occurs, that increase of the specimen length must be added and included as part of Lg, nominal gage length.
ASTM D measures the tensile properties of geotextiles using a wide-width strip specimen tensile method. Special clamping adaptions may be necessary with strong geotextiles or geotextiles made from glass fibers to prevent them from slipping in the clamps or being damaged as a result of being gripped in the clamps. The test specimens should then be randomly assigned in equal numbers to each laboratory for testing.
Centrally, draw two lines running the full width of the specimen, accurately perpendicular v4595 the length dimension and separated by mm 4 in. At a minimum, the two parties should take a group of test specimens which are as homogeneous as possible and which are from a lot of material of the type in question.
Active Risk Management
If any of the modi? Some fabrics used in geotextile applications have a tendency to contract neck down under a force in the gage length area. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. By means of our geotextile testing expertise and modular product design, we will help find the testing xstm that is right for you. This region is considered when determining the initial geotextile modulus.
On those fabrics, the contraction effect cited in 1. Within this limitation, the procedures in Test Method D has no known bias. 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.
The task group is continuing further interlaboratory testing. In any event, the procedure described in Section 10 of this test method for obtaining wide-width strip tensile strength must be maintained. NOTE 3—It is recognized that in practice, geotextile materials are frequently not weighed to determine when moisture equilibrium has been reached. If a jaw break is caused by damage to the specimen awtm the jaws, then the results should be discarded.
The wide-width strip technique has been explored by the industry and is recommended in these cases for geotextile applications.
While such a procedure cannot be accepted in cases of dispute, it may be sufficient in routine testing to expose the material to the standard atmosphere for testing for a reasonable period of time before the specimens are tested. Test Method D for the determination of the wide-width strip tensile properties of geotextiles may be used for the acceptance testing of commercial shipments of geotextiles, but caution is advised since information about between-laboratory precision is incomplete Note 6.
In these cases, a break near the edge of the jaws is inevitable and shall be accepted as a characteristic of the particular method of test. Draw a straight line secant through both points P1 and P2 intersecting the zero force axis. G90 Mechanical Vice Grip. In addition, the center portion of the specimen can be gaged using LVDTs or mechanical gages. This is particularly the case for nonwoven geotextiles.
This intersection, point B, is the zero elongation point from which elongation is measured. Special clamping adaptions may be necessary with strong geotextiles or geotextiles made from glass? This value for v is somewhat larger than usually found in practice.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. Take specimens at random from the laboratory sample, with those for the measurement of the machine direction tensile properties from different positions FIG.
For secant modulus, state that portion of the force? Some fabrics used in geotextile applications have a tendency to contract neck down under a force in the gage length area. If a bias is found, either its cause must be found astn corrected or the purchaser and the supplier must agree to interpret future test results in the light of the known bias.
It is the intent of the task group to include the above mentioned clari? This width, by contrast, is greater than the length of the specimen.
