    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method was intended for testing roller-compacted concrete specimens and covered determination of the relative bond between layers of roller-compacted concrete or other hardened concrete in multiple-lift forms of construction.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee C09 on Concrete and Concrete Aggregates, this test method was withdrawn in November 2019. This test method is being withdrawn without replacement due to its limited use by industry.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This test method is intended for testing roller-compacted concrete specimens and covers determination of the relative bond between layers of roller-compacted concrete or other hardened concrete in multiple-lift forms of construction. It is applicable to all types of layered roller-compacted concrete where the total depth is sufficient to meet the minimum specimen length and diameter requirements of this test method. This test method is not intended to provide tensile strength results of the material tested.

    1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

    1.3 The text of this standard references notes and footnotes, which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of this standard.

    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.
