Developed by Subcommittee: D18.15
WITHDRAWN, NO REPLACEMENT
This test method covers the procedure for determination of the flow consistency of fresh Controlled Low Strength Material (CLSM).
Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee D18 on Soil and Rock, this test method was withdrawn in July 2013 in accordance with section 10.5.3.1 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the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 the procedure for determination of the flow consistency of fresh Controlled Low Strength Material (CLSM). This test method applies to flowable CLSM with a maximum particle size of 19.0 mm (3/4 in.) sieve.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The inch-pound equivalents are given for information only.
1.3 CLSM is also known as flowable fill, controlled density fill, soil-cement grout, unshrinkable fill, K-Krete, and other similar names.
1.4 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.
