    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice explains the procedure for obtaining a representative sample to test of freshly mixed controlled low strength material (CLSM) as delivered to the project site (Note 1). This practice includes sampling from revolving-drum truck mixers and from agitating equipment used to transport central-mixed CLSM.

    1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The inch-pound equivalents are shown for information only.

    Note 1—Composite samples are required by this practice unless specifically excepted by procedures governing the tests to be performed, such as tests to determine uniformity of consistency and mixer efficiency. Procedures used to select the specific test batches are not described in this practice. It is recommended that random sampling be used to determine overall specification compliance.
