ASTM WK44067

    Revision of C1040 / C1040M - 08 Standard Test Methods for In-Place Density of Unhardened and Hardened Concrete, Including Roller Compacted Concrete, By Nuclear Methods

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: C1040 / C1040M - 16

    Developed by Subcommittee: C09.45 | Committee C09 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Rationale

    Item 12 on Ballot C09(13-03) for re-approval of C1040 received one negative vote because this standard does not contain a Terminology Section per Form and Style E1.3 and a comment concerning some proposed minor revisions. The negative voter agreed to withdraw his negative vote if I agreed to address this issue. This Work Item is being established to address the need for a Terminology Section and to consider the revisions proposed in the comment.
