Users of this standard are cautioned that compliance with Practice D does not in itself assure reliable results.

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. However, it is a time-consuming and expensive d571 that requires significant specimen preparation and the results may not be available for a long time after the samples are collected. 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.

How one applies the results obtained using this standard e5731 beyond its scope. This is an index test and is intended to be used to classify rock strength.

Mechanical properties

The test results should not be used for design or analytical purposes. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. It asmt beyond the scope of these test methods to consider significant digits used in analysis methods for engineering design. The specifics of the point load test program need to be developed prior to testing and possibly even before sampling.

Active view current version of standard. Reliable results depend on many factors; Practice D provides a means of evaluating some of those factors. Such data can be used to make timely and more informed decisions during the exploration phases and more efficient and cost effective selection of samples for more precise and expensive laboratory tests. However, the results can be highly influenced by how the specimen is treated from the time it is obtained until the time it is tested.

The specifics of the point load test program need to be developed prior to testing and possibly even before sampling.

Therefore, it may be necessary to handle specimens in accordance with Practice D and to document moisture conditions in some manner in the data collection.

Such specifics would be dependent on the intended use of the data, as well as possible budgetary constraints and possible other factors, which are outside the scope of this test method.

The quality of the result produced by this standard is dependent upon the competence of the personnel performing it, and the suitability of the equipment and facilities used. In addition, they are representative of the significant digits that generally should be retained.

The test is typically used in the field because the testing machine is portable, little or minimal specimen preparation is required, and adtm can be tested within a short time frame of being collected.
