Soil quality - Determination of soil water content as a volume fraction using coring sleeves - Gravimetric method (ISO 11461:2001)

This International Standard specifies a method for the gravimetric determination of soil water content as a volume fraction. The method is applicable to all types of non-swelling or non-shrinking soils where coring sleeves can be used for sampling. It is not applicable to soils where stones, tough roots or other factors prevent collection of soil cores. It is used as a reference method (e.g. the calibration of indirect methods for determination of water content).  NOTE The determination of water content as a mass fraction is described in ISO 11465.

Bodenbeschaffenheit - Bestimmung des Wassergehaltes des Bodens als Volumenanteil mittels Stechzylinder - Gravimetrisches Verfahren (ISO 11461:2001)

Diese Internationale Norm legt ein Verfahren für die gravimetrische Bestimmung des Wassergehalts von Böden als Volumenanteil fest.
Dieses Verfahren kann auf alle Arten von nicht-quellschrumpfenden Böden angewendet werden, die mit Stechzylindern beprobt werden können. Das Verfahren ist nicht anwendbar bei Böden mit Steinen, starken Wurzeln oder anderen Einflüssen, die die Entnahme von Bodenkernen verhindern. Es kann als Referenzverfahren verwendet werden (z. B. für die Kalibrierung indirekter Verfahren zur Bestimmung des Wassergehaltes).
ANMERKUNG   Die Bestimmung des Wassergehaltes als Massenanteil ist in  ISO 11465 festgelegt.

Qualité du sol - Détermination de la teneur en eau du sol en fraction volumique, à l'aide de carottiers - Méthode gravimétrique (ISO 11461:2001)

La présente Norme internationale spécifie une méthode de détermination gravimétrique de la teneur en eau du sol en fraction volumique. Cette méthode s'applique à tous les types de sols non gonflant et sans retrait pour lesquels des carottiers peuvent être utilisés pour l'échantillonnage. Elle ne s'applique pas aux sols où des pierres, des grosses racines ou d'autres facteurs empêchent de prélever des carottes. Elle est utilisée comme méthode de référence (par exemple étalonnage de méthodes indirectes pour la détermination de la teneur en eau).

Kakovost tal - Določevanje količine vode kot prostorninskega deleža z uporabo cilindrov - Gravimetrijska metoda (ISO 11461:2001)

Standard ISO 11461 določa metodo za gravimetrijsko določevanje količine vode v tleh kot prostorninskega deleža. Ta metoda se uporablja za vse vrste tal, ki ne nabrekajo in se ne krčijo ter pri katerih se za vzorčenje lahko uporabi vrtalne naprave. Ne uporablja se za tla, pri katerih kamenje, trde korenine ali drugi dejavniki preprečujejo vzorčenje. Uporablja se kot referenčna metoda (npr. pri umerjanju posrednih metod za določevanje količine vode).

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards bodies (ISO

member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out through ISO technical

committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been established has

the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in

liaison with ISO, also take part in the work. ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical

Commission (IEC) on all matters of electrotechnical standardization.

International Standards are drafted in accordance with the rules given in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 3.

Draft International Standards adopted by the technical committees are circulated to the member bodies for voting.

Publication as an International Standard requires approval by at least 75 % of the member bodies casting a vote.

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this International Standard may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

INTERNATIONAL STANDARD ISO 11461:2001(E)
Soil quality — Determination of soil water content as a volume
fraction using coring sleeves — Gravimetric method
1 Scope

This International Standard specifies a method for the gravimetric determination of soil water content as a volume

fraction.

The method is applicable to all types of non-swelling or non-shrinking soils where coring sleeves can be used for

sampling. It is not applicable to soils where stones, tough roots or other factors prevent collection of soil cores. It is

used as a reference method (e.g. the calibration of indirect methods for determination of water content).

NOTE The determination of water content as a mass fraction is described in ISO 11465.

2 Terms and definitions

For the purposes of this International Standard, the following terms and definitions apply.

2.1
water content volume fraction

volume of water evaporating from the soil when dried to constant mass at 105 C, divided by the original bulk volume

of the soil
NOTE The water content volume fraction is sometimes also referred to a
