ASTM WK37105

    Revision of C31 / C31M - 10 Standard Practice for Making and Curing Concrete Test Specimens in the Field

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Active Standard: C31 / C31M - 17

    Developed by Subcommittee: C09.61 | Committee C09 | Contact Staff Manager



    WK37105

    1. Rationale

    The current wording in section 10.1.1 would not seem to allow technicians to use their hands to support the bottom of the specimen when it needs to be relocated prior to initial storage, as it requires use of a trowel or similar device. The proposed revision would allow the technicians to use other methods, including using their hands, to support the bottom of the specimen. Additional details concerning the relocation provisions are also needed.
