significance And Use:

5.1 This practice provides guidance on sampling of EPS geofoam in order to determine compliance to Specification D6817/D6817M.

scope:

1.1 This practice provides guidance on the location, frequency, and method of sampling representative specimens from large blocks of expanded polystyrene (EPS) geofoam.

1.2 This practice is not intended to replace professional judgment, nor should this guide be applied without consideration of a project's many unique aspects.

1.3 The word "standard" in the title of this guide means only that this guide has been approved through the ASTM International consensus process.

1.4 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system are not necessarily exact equivalents; therefore, to ensure conformance with the standard, each system shall be used independently of the other, and values from the two systems shall not be combined.

1.5 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
