Standard Test Methods for Particle-Size Distribution ...

1.8 Sample Processing— Three procedures (moist, air dry, and oven dry) are provided to process the sample to obtain a specimen. The procedure selected will depend on the type of sample, the maximum particle-size in the sample, the range of particle sizes, the initial conditions of the material, the plasticity of the material, the efficiency, and the need for other testing on the sample.

ASTM Soil Classification

ASTM D 2487 soil classification system, an ASTM version of the Unified Soil Classification System, classifies mineral and organo-mineral soils for engineering purposes based on its particle-size characteristics, liquid limit, and plasticity index. Please note that, this soil classification standard is limited to naturally occurring soils.

2018-3-15  This classification system is based on particle-size characteristics, liquid limit, and plasticity index. According to ASTM D2487-17, there are three major soil divisions: coarse-grained soils, fine-grained soils, and highly organic soils. These are subdivided further into 15 basic groups, each with its own group symbol (e.g. GW).
