Standard Test Method for Compressive Strength of Lightweight Insulating Concrete
|Standards number:||ASTM C0495_C0495M-12R19|
|Keywords:||compressive strength; density; lightweight insulating concrete; oven-dry density;|
1.1 This test method covers the preparation of specimens and the determination of the compressive strength of lightweight insulating concrete having an oven-dry density not exceeding 800 kg/m3 [50 lb/ft3] as determined by the procedures described herein. This test method covers the preparation and testing of molded 75 by 150-mm [3 by 6-in.] cylinders.
1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. 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.
1.4 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
