On the previous ballot item for ASTM C231, Ballot C09 (22-01) Item 009, additional language regarding the use of Self-Consolidating Concrete (SCC) was approved to be included in the document. This addition, approved and published, added a reference for ASTM C1758 on procedure for filing the sample container when SCC is being tested. In the resolution of negative votes and comments from that ballot item, it was agreed that new business would take up concerns stated regarding harmonization across C09.60 testing methods. This ballot item primarily addresses the placement of existing language in the document to create a more concise workflow process, provide additional notation as to the inclusion of C1758, and remove the conflict of having the SCC reference after mention of filling the measure.
This ballot is running concurrently as a sub-committee ballot along with similar items proposed for C138 and C173 to bring these items in alignment.
