ASTM WK37105

    Work Item: ASTM WK37105 - Revision of C31 / C31M - 10 Standard Practice for Making and Curing Concrete Test Specimens in the Field

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: C31 / C31M - 12

    Developed by Subcommittee: C09.61 | Committee C09 | Contact Staff Manager



    1. Rationale

    The current wording in section 10.1.1 would not seem to allow the technician to use his hand to support the bottom of the specimen when it needs to be relocated prior to initial storage, as it requires use of a trowel or similar device. The proposed revision would allow the technician to use other methods, including using his hand, to support the bottom of the specimen and would still not allow the technician to move the cylinder using the lip around the top of the mold.
