Standard Test Method for Electrical Resistivity of Membrane-Pavement Systems
|Publication Date:||1 June 2012|
|ICS Code (Road construction materials):||93.080.20|
This test method covers the measurement of the electrical resistivity of water-barrier membrane-pavement systems when applied to concrete bridge decks.
Measurements shall be performed on the bituminous pavement surface covering the water-barrier membrane.
This test method utilizes a measure of electrical resistance between the saturated top surface of the water-barrier membrane and the reinforcing steel embedded in the concrete bridge deck.
The values measured represent the electrical resistance obtained with the equipment and procedures stated herein and do not necessarily agree or correlate with those using other equipment or procedures.
Units-The values stated in either SI units or inchpound 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 nonconformance with the standard.
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.
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.
