Test Method Title

Standard Test Method for Particle Size Analysis of Natural and Man-Made Rip Rap Materials

Reference Number

ASTM D5519

Material

Rip Rap

Test Property

Grain Size

Description of Test

The following three test methods for evaluating particle size distribution are available. Test Method A: Size-Mass Grading--A sample of the material is obtained, individual particles are measured, and the particles are grouped into size ranges desired. The total mass of particles in the desired size range is determined. Particle size distribution percentages are then determined by calculation. Test Method B: Size Range Grading--A sample of the material is obtained individual particles are measured, counted, masses are summed into mass ranges desired and the distribution by mass ranges is determined. Test Method C: Mass-Range Grading--A sample of the material is obtained, the mass of individual particles is measured, counted, masses are summed into mass ranges desired, and the distribution by mass ranges is determined.
