I am talking about case in middle east. Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden. Reasons such as off-topic, duplicates, flames, illegal, vulgar, or students posting their homework.

The use of pavers made using a wet cast method is not common because the wet cast units are probably not cost effective. I am working in Kuwait. Work Item atsm – proposed revisions of this standard. 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.

ASTM usually does not sstm involved in manufacturing processes, but only specifies the minimum standards of the units. There are also very few if any manufacturers that meet the standards for the installation requirements. 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.

BS mention specifically about face mix concrete pavers. The compressive strength is far below the level of the usual manufacturing equipment. Is there any ASTM standard which has mention about face mix type 2 layer semi dry cast concrete pavers? Dear All, Kindly help me with your expertise knowledge in the below questions.

Digital Transformation may be defined in a number of different ways by analysts or enterprise software vendors. The Eng-Tips staff will check this out and take appropriate action. Link to Active This link will always c963 to the current Active version of the standard.

What is common practice in US? The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other.

As you said,Tensile split strength has little effect if the pavers are of interlocking type. 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.

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. Are you an Engineering professional?

Standard Specification for Solid Concrete Interlocking Paving Units

A typical concrete brick could be 12, psi. Perhaps the supplier you mentioned can address the variation if they are active in writing the ASTM standard. The psi compressive strength requirement is very low and a manufacturer could not afford to make the minimal units because this would require compromising other factors including handling and installation. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.

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

Engineer and international traveler interested in construction techniques, problems and proper design. This can effect the applicability of this factor based on the testing of the sample you referred to.

Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. The specification also offers guidelines for physical requirements, sampling and testing, visual inspection, and rejection of specimens. This paver is a long one, size mm x 72mm x mm,which has great potential for tensile splitting.


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.

Defense manufacturing is all about project manufacturing and project accounting. I agree with d936 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. Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.

ASTM Standard for Concrete Unit pavers sudhirvasan – If you refer to a standard ASTM or others in your specifications, make sure you understand the specification and note the requirements that are excluded or waived for your specific use.

In my opinion, the standard is very minimal and the demands of the specifiers and contractors over-ride the of the ASTM standard. Asgm your case, the ASTM contains a qstm that the the length to thickness of the unit be less than 4.

Close this window and log in. There are some features incorporated in the design of the paving units are not even addressed in C Red Flag This Post Please let us know here why this post is inappropriate. Local sellers, however, should be consulted as to qstm of units having the desired features. Thank you Mr Dick.
