Standard Test Method for Static Segregation of Self-Consolidating Concrete Using Column Technique
|Publication Date:||1 October 2010|
This test method covers the determination of static segregation of self-consolidating concrete by measuring the coarse aggregate content in the top and bottom portions of a cylindrical specimen (or column).
This test method is not applicable to self-consolidating concrete containing lightweight aggregate.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the SI units are shown in brackets. 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.
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 test method is applicable under laboratory and field conditions.
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. (Warning-Fresh hydraulic cementitious mixtures are caustic and may cause chemical burns to skin and tissue upon prolonged exposure.2)
