Standards updates and revisions that may be of interest to GeoPrac readers include Bulk Density and Voids in Aggregate, several updates for Dry-Cast Segmental Retaining Wall Units, a revised standard for the California Bearing Ratio (CBR) test and several for Geosynthetic Clay Liners and Lanfill Daily Covers.

D5434 – “Standard Guide for Field Logging of Subsurface Explorations of Soil and Rock” and D4429 – “Standard Test Method for CBR (California Bearing Ratio) of Soils in Place” are two standards revised this month that may be of interest to geotechnical engineers. Those in the construction services and materials testing business should take a look at a number of changes to relevant standards. This month there are also a few revised standards related to detection of different ions in water. I also see that there are a number of geothermal and solar standards that were reapproved this month, most of them seem to have been last modified in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s.
