Humbolt has released a Nuclear Gauge App to allow you to capture nuclear density gauge test results using your phone. The app works using QR codes generated on the Humboldt EZ-2 Nuclear Gauge. You can transfer the data via email, text, or cloud sharing platforms. You can store multiple projects in the App, and provide rapid results back to the office. The results are still stored on the gauge as well and can be transferred via USB as well.
It’s that time again. Here are a collection of changes/additions to ASTM standards that are relevant to geotechnical engineers, soils labs, CQA firms and related disciplines. There are a couple of interesting new standards available. D7698 is a new procedure for estimation of in-place density and water content of soil and aggregate by correlation with complex impedance. I’m not eactly sure what that is, but it sounds cool. There is also a new standard (D7702) that provides guidance for the evaluation of direct shear results involving geosynthetics. Read on for these and other updates.
Time again for a summary of changes to ASTM standards that may be of interest to geotechnical engineers, engineering geologists and those in geoconstruction and even lab testing or CQA. This month there is a new standard for a new type of geomembrane, revisions to standards relating to ultrasonic testing and general nondestructive testing terminology, evaluation of particle shape in aggregates, and re-approval of standards relating to non-asbestos fiber-cement based products.
