1.1 This test method covers laboratory measurement of the effect of freeze-thaw on the hydraulic conductivity of compacted or intact soil specimens using Test Method D 5084
1.2 This test method may be used with intact specimens (block or thin-walled) or laboratory compacted specimens and shall be used for soils that have an initial hydraulic conductivity less than or equal to 1E-5 m/s (1E-3 cm/s) (Note 1).
Note 1—The maximum initial hydraulic conductivity is given as 1 E-3 cm/s. This should also apply to the final hydraulic conductivity. It is expected that if the initial hydraulic conductivity is 1 E-3 cm/s, then the final hydraulic conductivity will not change (increase) significantly (that is, greater than 1 E-3 cm/s).
1.3 Soil specimens tested using this test method can be subjected to three-dimensional freeze-thaw (herein referred to as 3-d) or one-dimensional freeze-thaw (herein referred to as 1-d). (For a discussion of one-dimensional freezing versus three-dimensional freezing, refer to Zimmie or Othman. )
1.4 Soil specimens tested using this test method can be tested in a closed system (that is, no access to an external supply of water during freezing) or an open system.
1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard, unless other units are specifically given. By tradition, it is U.S. practice to report hydraulic conductivity in centimetres per second, although the common SI units for hydraulic conductivity are metres per second. The values are to be calculated and reported in accordance with Practice D 6026
1.6 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.
