    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method covers the procedures for testing hardened concrete when subjected to triaxial stress conditions. Materials other than concrete, cement paste, or mortar are excluded. When the determination of the strength of concrete under a triaxial state of stress is made according to this test method, two of the three principal stresses are always equal. There is no provision made for the measurement of pore pressures; therefore, all strength values are in terms of total stress.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee C09 on Concrete and Concrete Aggregates, this test method was withdrawn in July 2004 in accordance with section 10.5.3.1 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the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. Scope

    1.1 This test method covers the procedures for testing hardened concrete when subjected to triaxial stress conditions. Materials other than concrete, cement paste, or mortar are excluded. When the determination of the strength of concrete under a triaxial state of stress is made according to this test method, two of the three principal stresses are always equal. There is no provision made for the measurement of pore pressures; therefore all strength values are in terms of total stress.

    1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard.

    1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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.
