Suggested Method for Performing the Borehole Shear Test
ASTM Committee D18.02 on Sampling and Related Field Testing for Soil Investigation (Mr. Ralph Brown, Chairman) suggested that this proposed suggested method be published herein to provide exposure and solicit comments for users. The purpose is to improve its clarity, accuracy, and acceptibility, so that in the future, Committee D18.02 may submit it for publication in the Annual Book of ASTM Standards. Suggestions for revision and other comments should be sent to Alan J. Lutenegger, Subcommittee D18.02.12. The subcommittee will fully consider all comments and suggestions that provide specific improvements to the proposed method.
