Caution: prolonged tapping.

D — 04 Standard Test Method for 1 Shrinkage Factors of Soils by the Mercury Method This standard is issued under the fixed designation D ; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of last revision. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval.

A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. Referenced Documents shrinkage ratio. Atter- Soil Constants berg.

Fill the glass cup to overflowing with portion of the material passing the No. Remove the excess mercury by pressing the glass which has been obtained in accordance with Practice D Observe that there is no air trapped between the plate and mercury and if there is, refill the dish and repeat the process.

The amount of water added should outside of the cup. Place the cup filled with that will flow sufficiently to expel air bubbles when using mercury in the evaporating dish and rest the soil pat on the gentle tapping action.

It is desirable to use the minimum surface of the mercury it will float. Using the glass plate with possible water content. This is of some importance with very the three prongs gently press the pat under the mercury and plastic soils so that they do not crack during the drying process. Observe that there is no air trapped between petroleum jelly, silicone grease, or similar lubricant to prevent the plate and mercury, and, if there is, repeat the process the adhesion of astn soil to the dish.
