|Publication Date:||1 January 2001|
1.1 This test method covers procedures for determining material losses produced by repeated freezing and thawing of solid waste specimens. It also covers the visual observation of the disintegration of solid specimens.
1.2 This test method intends that the material used in the procedure be physically, chemically, and biologically representative, hence it does not address problems as a result of the inhomogeneity of specimens.
1.3 This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems associated with its use. 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.
