Cut the coupon from the exposed surface of the unit as the unit is used in asgm unless the exposed surface is an architectural or other nonplanar surface see Note 6.
The testing laboratory performing this test method should be evaluated in accordance with Practice C Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. However, other means could be used to obtain similar architectural effects like tumbling, grinding, and slumping.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the asm. Pour the test solution from the specimen container through the filter paper to collect the residue spall from the test specimen.
Immediately rinse the specimen with water if the specimen is tested in saline solution, use saline solutiontorinse the specimen usinga squeeze bottle,being careful to collect in the specimen container the rinse water or saline solution and all loose particles from the specimen.
The units shall be free from visible cracks or structural defects.
ASTM C Standard Specification for Segmental Retaining Wall Units
Open containers to visually inspect the condition of the specimens and to adjust the test solution level to comply with 7. Remove the specimen from the container, pourthe rinse water or saline solution through the filter paper, and rinse the specimen container until all residue spall in the specimen container is collected on the filter paper.
In the case of a unit with an exposed architectural or other f1262 surface, cut the coupon from another flat molded surface ideally as far as possible from the architectural or other nonplanar face and in no case less than 2 in.
Where the coupon thickness is less than 1. The following summarizes the contents of ASTM C and key components of the test methods used to determine relative freeze thaw durability. Do atm subject test specimens to oven-drying prior to completion of freeze-thaw testing. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other.
A copy of the full standard is d1262 upon request. Immediately following saw-cutting, aetm loose particles and residue from the coupon by rinsing in tap water and brushing with a soft bristle brush. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with this standard. Some values have only SI units because the inch-pound equivalents are not used in practice. 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.
Do not fully immerse coupons in water. Report these values for each specimen as well as the average of the specimens tested. Do not saw-cut test specimens from units that have been previously oven ast.
Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Remove a cc1262 specimen from its container. Using fingertips and a squeeze bottle, remove loose particles from all surfaces of the specimen, again being careful to collect all rinse water or saline solution and loose particles in the specimen container.
Each specimen shall bemarked with a unique identification number on the non-molded surface of the specimen. This does not provide a comparison to field performance but a systematic approach to testing. This summary attempts to provide the information which is most commonly used, but Allan Block does not claim that all information contained in the standard is represented.
Related concrete units include units such as hollow and solid concrete masonry units, concrete brick, and concrete roof pavers. Do not pour test solution directly onto the specimen. Replace the specimen in the container. Rinse the residue from specimens tested in saline solution three times with water to remove any soluble salt.
Related concrete units include units such as hollow and solid concrete masonry units, concrete brick, and concrete roof pavers. Note 6 – Split-faced surfaces are the most common surfaces used to provide an architectural appearance to segmental retaining walls.
Consider any pieces that separated from the specimen as part of the residue. Close the container lid asttm and store the container on a level surface in laboratory air as defined in 6.
