Standard Test Method for Freeze-thaw and De-icing Salt Durability of Solid Concrete Interlocking Paving Units
Show Complete Document History
The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:
1.1 This test method evaluates the resistance to freezing and thawing of solid interlocking concrete paving units conforming to the dimensional requirements of Specification . Units are tested in a test solution that is either tap water or 3 % saline solution, depending on the intended use of the units in actual service.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
1.2.1 Inch-pound units are given in parentheses for temperature specification and are for information only.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, in any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the use of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitation prior to use.
Significance and Use
3.1 This test method is intended to determine the effects of freezing and thawing on units conforming to the dimensional requirements of Specification while immersed in a test solution. Other types of segmental concrete paving units that do not conform to the dimensional requirements of Specification may be tested using this test method.
3.2 The results from this test method are not intended to provide a quantitative measure of the length of service from concrete paving units conforming to the dimensional requirements of Specification .
