Standard Test Method for Field Measurement of Infiltration Rate Using a Double-Ring Infiltrometer with a Sealed-Inner Ring

Fecha:
2017-08-16 /Historical
Scope:

1.1 This test method describes a procedure for measuring the infiltration rate of water through in-place soils using a double-ring infiltrometer with a sealed inner ring.

1.2 This test method is useful for soils with infiltration rates in the range of 1 X 10 -7 m/s to 1 X 10 -10 m/s. When infiltration rates [>=]1 X 10 -7 m/s are to be measured Test Method D3385 shall be used.

1.3 This test method provides a direct measurement of infiltration rate, not hydraulic conductivity. Although the units of infiltration rate and hydraulic conductivity are similar, there is a distinct difference between these two quantities. They cannot be directly related unless the hydraulic boundary conditions, such as hydraulic gradient and the extent of lateral flow of water are known or can be reliably estimated.

1.4 This test method can be used for natural soil deposits, recompacted soil layers, and amended soils such as soil bentonite and soil lime mixtures.

1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values in parentheses are for information only.

1.6 This standard does not purport to address the safety problems 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.
