dc.descriptionIntroduction: In the "undisturbed" sand sampling procedures used and developed by the Waterways Experiment Station in its exploration work, the question arose as to how much disturbance actually occurs in samples so obtained. The investigations described herein were conducted to answer that question and to provide a basis for recommended field procedures which would minimize sample disturbance. The investigations involved determination of the magnitude of the density changes occurring in sands during sampling, handling, and subsequent testing, and how these density changes are related to certain procedural, equipmental, and natural variables. This report discusses the results of the effects of the factors causing disturbance and evaluates the test methods used.-
