ASTM Standard for Concrete Unit pavers – ASTM (testing materials) Code Issues – Eng-Tips

In your case, the ASTM contains a requirement that the the length to thickness of the asmt be less than 4. ASTM usually does not get involved in manufacturing processes, but only specifies the minimum standards of the units. Dear All, Kindly help me with your expertise knowledge in the below questions. I am working in Kuwait. Resources Digital Transformation may be defined in a number of different ways by analysts or enterprise software vendors.

Are you an Engineering professional? To my knowledge, the the units you have visualized are not the typical “interlocking concrete pavers” that the specification written for, which is for heavy loads wheel loads than can be carried if installed properly.

Standard Specification for Solid Concrete Interlocking Paving Units

Download Now White Paper: Thank you Mr Dick. By joining you are opting in to receive e-mail. The tensile splitting test is of no value since the pavers never see a similar loading because of the restraint and effects of the surrounding units.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard. The compressive strength is far below the level of the usual manufacturing equipment.


ASTM C / CM – 18 Standard Specification for Solid Concrete Interlocking Paving Units

There are also very few if any manufacturers that meet the standards for the installation requirements. This paver is a long one, size mm x 72mm x mm,which has great potential for tensile splitting.

Join your peers on the Internet’s largest technical engineering professional community. I am talking about case in middle east. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Which abrasion resistance test is more recommended for concrete unit pavers? Digital Transformation may be defined in a number of different ways by analysts or enterprise software vendors. Local sellers, however, should be consulted as to availability of units having the desired features.

Red Flag This Post Please let us know here why this post is inappropriate. The use of pavers made using a wet cast method is not common because the wet cast units are probably not cost effective. Posting Guidelines Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden.

Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden. I agree with you that the standard is very minimal, but when we deal the subject in construction contracts,though we specify the product with manufacturer name,the reference to International standards becomes mandatory. I am sure they have had units tested in a lab somewhere that may have an acceptable machine to test such a long unit if the ASTM standards were used.

Reasons such as off-topic, duplicates, flames, illegal, vulgar, or students posting their homework. Close this window and log in. In my opinion, the standard is very minimal and the demands of the specifiers and contractors over-ride the of the ASTM standard.

Engineer and international traveler interested astk construction techniques, problems and proper design. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. Defense manufacturing is all about project manufacturing and project accounting. Dick Engineer and international traveler interested in construction techniques, problems and proper design.


It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application.

The specification also offers guidelines for physical requirements, sampling and testing, visual inspection, and rejection of specimens. Kindly share your experience and knowledge. Perhaps the supplier you mentioned can address the variation if they are active in writing the ASTM standard. BS mention specifically about face mix concrete pavers. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. As you said,Tensile split strength has little effect if the pavers are of interlocking type.

Combining values from the two systems may result xstm non-conformance with the standard. There are some features incorporated in the design of the paving units are not even addressed in C The Eng-Tips staff will check this out and take appropriate action. What is common practice in US?

If yes which standard is referred for this type of pavers? The face layer does present some problems regarding determining durability testing, but does not preclude the use of a face layer, since it is a standard for type of construction material. The psi compressive strength requirement is very low and a manufacturer could not afford to make the minimal units because this would require ast, other factors including handling and installation.

How important is atm split tensile strength test for concrete pavers? This specification is intended for interlocking concrete pavers used in the construction of paved surfaces and manufactured from cementitious materials, aggregates, chemical admixtures, and other constituents such as integral water repellents.
