Standard Practice for Molding Roller-Compacted Concrete in Cylinder Molds Using a Vibrating Hammer
|Publication Date:||1 October 2014|
This practice2 covers molding cylindrical test specimens from concrete when the standard procedures of rodding and internal vibration, as described in Practice C31/C31M and Practice C1176/C1176M, are not practicable. This practice is applicable to freshly-mixed concrete, prepared in the laboratory and the field.
Freshly-mixed concrete is molded in cylindrical molds using an electric vibrating hammer equipped with a shaft and circular plate.
The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the inch-pound 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 practice references notes and footnotes, which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of this practice.
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.
