This practice is intended to be used for stiff to extremely dry concrete mixtures commonly used in roller-compacted concrete construction. This practice is used instead of rodding or internal vibration, which cannot properly consolidate concrete of this consistency (Note 1).
Note 1-Further description of this concrete consistency is given in ACI 207.5 Roller-Compacted Mass Concrete3 and 211.3 Guide for Selecting Proportions for No-Slump Concrete3 . The consistency of roller-compacted concrete may be determined in accordance with Test Method C 1170.View Less
1.1 This practice covers procedures for making cylindrical test specimens from concrete when the standard procedures of rodding and internal vibration, as described in Practice C 31, are not practicable. This practice is applicable to freshly mixed concrete, prepared in the laboratory and the field, having a nominal maximum size aggregate of 50 mm (2 in.) or less. If the nominal maximum size aggregate is larger than 2 in., the practice is applicable only when performed on the fraction passing the 50-mm (2-in.) sieve with the larger aggregate being removed in accordance with Practice C 172. This practice, intended for use in testing roller-compacted concrete, may be applicable to testing other types of concrete such as cement-treated aggregate and mixtures similar to soil-cement.
1.2 Two methods are provided for making concrete cylinders using a vibrating table:
1.2.1 Method A is a procedure for making test specimens in steel reusable molds attached to a vibrating table.
1.2.2 Method B is a procedure for making test specimens in single-use plastic molds that have been inserted into a metal sleeve attached to a vibrating table.
1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information purposes only.
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.
