IN THIS ISSUE

ASTM construction standards are used around the world as they are referenced in the International Building Code. Patrick McCullen, of the International Conference of Building Officials Evaluation Service, describes just some of the many testing uses of ASTM standards for building construction purposes. Also, David P. Gustafson of Subcommittee A01.05 on Steel Reinforcement discusses that group’s efforts to prevent the corrosion of steel-reinforced concrete structures through standardization. //
