Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 10 June 2000
Status: inactive
Page Count: 4
ICS Code (Physical properties of soils): 13.080.20
scope:

1. Scope

1.1 This test method covers the testing apparatus, sampling, test specimen preparation, and testing procedures for determining the rebound hardness number of rock material using a spring-driven steel hammer, referred to variously as a rebound hammer, impact test hammer, or concrete test hammer.

1.2 This test method is best suited for rock material with uniaxial compressive strengths (see Test Method D 2938) ranging between approximately 1 and 100 MPa.

1.3 The portable testing apparatus may be used in the laboratory or field to provide a means of rapid assessment of rock hardness or to serve as an indicator of rock hardness.

1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.

1.5 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.
