Standard Method of Test for Measuring Early-Age Compression Strength and Projecting Later-Age Strength
|Publication Date:||1 January 2017|
This test method covers a procedure for making and curing concrete specimens and for testing them at an early age. The specimens are stored under standard curing conditions and the measured temperature history is used to compute a maturity index that is related to strength gain.
This test method also covers a procedure for using the results of early-age compressive-strength
The values stated in 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 nonconformance with the standard.
The text of this standard references notes and footnotes that provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of 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 and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
