The International Peat Society (IPS) established a working group for Peat and Peatland Classification in with the aim of developing a framework for a universal classification of virgin peat. The use of the word virgin suggests that the aim was not a classification which would be useful to agronomists. They are mainly concerned with the. Abstract. On reviewing the literature on peat classification, it becomes evident that most of the existing classification systems are based on the use of peats and organic soils as a growing medium in horticulture, agriculture, and forestry, or as a horticultural additive (peat moss), or as a fuel.

Peat: Industrial Chemistry and Technology explores the chemistry and chemical technology of peat as a chemical feedstock. The processes that generate peat chemicals, such as solvent extraction and acid hydrolysis, are discussed.

Some of the more important implications of peat use for humans and nature are also pointed out. Peat is considered a challenging natural material in geotechnical engineering practice. Its high water content, organic and fibrous nature cause difficulties in sampling and laboratory testing of peat materials.

The large deformations [1,2,3], structural anisotropy [4], time-dependent. COAL, OIL SHALE, NATURAL BITUMEN, HEAVY OIL AND PEAT – Vol. II - Classification of Peat and Peatland - Ma Xuehui and Hu Jinming ©Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS) Figure 1.

Matter compositions of peat The water content of peat is high, usually ranging from 50 to 70% by weight, but it can reach as high as 90%. of the peat, its behaviour during shear is somewhat different from that of mineral soils (e.g.

soft clays) and it has been found difficult to obtain reliable values of its shear strength. To estimate the shear strength of the peat, the geotechnical engineer is facedCited by:   The tensile strength and deformability of fibrous peat depend on a number of factors, including the type of peat (fen, bog, reed etc.); its water content; the degree of humification; the number, length and tensile strength of the plant fibres and root threads present; their orientation relative to the failure plane; and the strength of the peat by: 3.

Peat classification Peat is divided by the degree of degradation after von Posta’s western countries scale (H), the peat is broken down from H1 to H The most demanded is the high-type peat, the most high-grade peat top layers, characterized by the lowest degree of decomposition, which, according to the von Posta scale, corresponds to H2-H4, this peat is used in crop production.

specific gravity. Compressibility behavior of various type of peat soil was measured using Rowe Cell consolidation test for accuracy and conventional oedometer test for comparison purpose. Compressibility index Cc and Cα was identified as two crucial parameters to estimate settlements in peat soil.

Peat accumulation generally takes place as a result of limited decay (decomposition) of plant material. An important factor for peat accumulation is the chemical and structural composition of the organic material, which determines its “ability to decay.” However, water seems to be the most important external factor limiting decay.

peat. Peat properties reflect the peat-forming environment, development process and the types of peat-forming plants.

Peat consists of organic matter, mineral matter and water. Under natural conditions, the content of water in peat exceeds 80% and content of gases content is about 6%.

In dry peat, the organic matter content can reach 50%. strength of peat determined by. in -situ. vane testing are in the range 3–15 kPa; and it is very weak, with a cone end resistance (q.

t) of – MPa as determined using the Cone Penetration Test (CPTU) (AdamsAdamsCoutinho & LacerdaHanzwa.PrzystanskiDe. et al HaanMitachiCarlsten File Size: KB. The purpose of this classification is to standardize the naming of peat materials so that the peat-producer can better identify the product and the peat-consumer can better select peat materials to meet requirements.

This system may also be used for peat resource evaluations, environmental impact reports, and preliminary engineering studies. For example, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture Soil Classification peat is an organic soil (Histosol) that contains a minimum of 20% organic matter increasing to 30% if as much as 60% of the mineral matter is clay.

The direct simple shear test is receiving more attention in recent years as the failure mechanism is considered to be relevant to peat slides. Ratios of suDSS /σ′vc of (Porbaha et al., ), (Foott and Ladd, ) and (Farrell and Hebib, ) were recorded on fibrous peats, considerably higher than the ratio of about A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the : Brendan C.

O'kelly. General Peat is a living mass and many factors affect its performance. The consolidation and settlement due to new and existing roads can usually be predicted but other effects, e.g. adjacent drainage work, an unusual dry summer, a change in the water table in the peat, etc can also occur over which the engineer Continue reading 2.

Behavior of peat →. classifies peat in three-point scale with respect to fibre content that is determined by ASTM D test and is the result of decomposition process of peat materials. This type of classification is shown in Table 3.

Table 3: USDA classification of peat (Huat ) Cited by: 5. Peat is considered as unsuitable soil for supporting foundations in its natural state due to the high moisture content (>%), high compressibility ( - ) and low shear strength ( kPa) values.

Peat also contains high organic matter (>75%), large deformation, high compressibility and high magnitude and rates of by: 5.

When you buy PEAT you have access to two different exams as part of the purchase: a practice test and a retired NPTE form.

If you purchase PEAT again, you will receive the same two exams. On occasion FSBPT releases new versions of PEAT. The last release of PEAT was June 4, Note: On December 1,FSBPT made available to schools an.The generic RSPO definition of peat soil is as follows: “Histosols (organic soils) are soils with cumulative organic layer(s) comprising more than half of the upper 80cm or cm of the soil surface containing 35% or more of organic matter (35% or more Loss on Ignition) or 18% or more organic carbon”.

The Irish Peatland Conservation Council () defines peat as: “a soil that is made up of the partially decomposed remains of dead plants which have accumulated on top of each other in waterlogged places for thousands of where peat accumulates are called peatlands.

Peat is brownish‐black in color and in its natural state is composed of 90% water and 10% solid material”.
