    Rationale

    The subject of renaming the D 6684 ACB Standard from the current Standard Specification for Materials and Manufacture of Articulating Concrete Block Revetment Systems to Standard Specification for Materials and Manufacture of Articulating Concrete Block Systems has been discussed at the last two section meetings and has been moved forward. The thought is that by having the word Revetment in the standards title is perceived as overly restrictive, since ACBs have numerous other applications that are not revetments. Removal of this word makes the standard more universally acceptable and in no way diminishes the original intent of the standard.
