ASTM D5873

In addition, they are representative of the significant digits that generally atsm be retained. For a given plunger tip diameter and radius of curvature, the impact energy of f5873 rebound hammer determines its range of applicability. It is beyond the scope of this standard to x5873 significant digits used in analytical methods for engineering design.

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. This test method applies only to hammers with an impact energy not to exceed qstm.


No other units of measurement are included in this standard. Test Method D provides more information on compressive strength of rock. Care should be taken when testing such rocks and conglomerates as the rebound values will vary between testing a large piece of aggregate versus softer matrix of the conglomerate. Note 2 — The quality of the result produced by this test method is dependent on the competence of the personnel performing it and the suitability of the equipment and facilities used.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. Note 1 — Several types of rebound hammers are commercially available to e5873 testing of various sizes and types of rock.

Earlier recommendations for rock mechanics applications were only for hammers with an impact energy of 0. Link to Active This link will asttm route to the current Active version of the standard. Accordingly, this limitation should be kept in mind when selecting a hammer type.


For the same rock or material, rebound numbers obtained from different hammers are not comparable. Hammers with energies above 0.

Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. Users of this test method are cautioned that compliance with Practice D does not in d583 assure reliable results. Reliable results depend on many factors; Practice D provides a means of evaluating some of those factors.

These applications include, for examples, the prediction of penetration rates for tunnel boring machines, determination of rock quality for construction purposes, grouping of test specimens, and prediction of hydraulic erodibility of rock.

Agencies that meet the criteria of Practice D are generally considered capable of competent and objective testing and sampling.
