This test method covers four procedures for making, curing, and testing specimens of concrete stored under conditions intended to accelerate the development of strength. The four procedures are: Procedure AWarm Water Method, Procedure BBoiling Water Method, Procedure CAutogenous Curing Method, and Procedure DHigh Temperature and Pressure Method.
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee C09 on Concrete and Concrete Aggregates, this test method was withdrawn in April 2012 in accordance with section 10.5.3.1 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.
1.1 This test method covers four procedures for making, curing, and testing specimens of concrete stored under conditions intended to accelerate the development of strength. The four procedures are: Procedure A-Warm Water Method, Procedure B-Boiling Water Method, Procedure C-Autogenous Curing Method, and Procedure D-High Temperature and Pressure Method.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are provided for information purposes only.
1.3 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. See Section 9 and Note 9 and 14 for specific warnings and precautions.
