CEN - EN 206-1

Concrete - Part 1: Specification, performance, production and conformity

inactive, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 December 2000
Status: inactive
Page Count: 74
ICS Code (Concrete and concrete products): 91.100.30
scope:

This European Standard applies to concrete for structures cast in situ, precast structures, and structural precast products for buildings and civil engineering structures.

The concrete may be mixed on site, ready-mixed concrete or produced in a plant for precast concrete products.

This standard specifies requirements for:

- the constituent materials of concrete;

- the properties of fresh and hardened concrete and their verification;

- the limitations for concrete composition;

- the specification of concrete;

- the delivery of fresh concrete;

- the production control procedures;

- the conformity criteria and evaluation of conformity.

This European Standard applies to concrete compacted to retain no appreciable amount of entrapped air other than entrained air. This standard applies to normal-weight, heavy-weight and light-weight concrete.

Other European Standards for specific products e.g. precast products or for processes within the field of the scope of this standard may require or permit deviations from this standard.

Additional or different requirements may be given in further parts of this standard or in other specific European Standards, for example:

- concrete to be used in roads and other trafficked areas;

- concrete using other materials (e.g. fibres) or constituent materials not covered by 5.1;

- concrete with an upper aggregate size of 4 mm or less (mortar);

- special technologies (e.g. sprayed concrete);

- concrete for disposal of liquids and gaseous waste;

- concrete for vessels for storage of polluting substances;

- concrete for massive structures (e.g. dams);

- dry mixed concrete.

NOTE As long as these standards are not available, provisions valid in the place of use of the concrete may apply. European Standards are under preparation for:

- concrete to be used in roads and other trafficked areas;

- sprayed concrete.

This standard does not apply to:

- aerated concrete;

- foamed concrete;

- concrete with open structure ("no-fines" concrete);

- concrete with density less than 800 kg/m3;

- refractory concrete.

This standard does not cover health and safety requirements for the protection of workers during production and delivery of concrete.
