Standard Practice for Examination and Sampling of Hardened Concrete in Constructions
|Publication Date:||10 November 1995|
|ICS Code (Concrete and concrete products):||91.100.30|
1.1 This practice outlines procedures for visual examination and sampling of hardened concrete in constructions. Reference is made to the examination and sampling of concrete in prefabricated building units, precast products, and laboratory specimens.
NOTE 1--The procedures are not applicable directly to concrete in place that does not harden in a normal manner or that fails to develop strength sufficient to allow removal of forms or temporary supports or to sustain required loads. Under such circumstances, the actions to be taken are dictated by considerations for safety and requirements for continuation of construction operations.
1.2 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.
