BS mention specifically about face mix concrete pavers. ASTM usually does not get involved in manufacturing processes, but only specifies the minimum standards of the units. Resources Digital Transformation may be defined in a number of different ways by analysts or enterprise software vendors.

Standard Specification for Solid Concrete Interlocking Paving Units

I am talking about case in middle east. Join your peers on the Internet’s largest technical engineering professional community. It’s easy to join and it’s free.

In my opinion, the standard is very minimal and the demands of the specifiers and contractors over-ride the of the ASTM standard.

Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard. How important is the split tensile strength test for concrete pavers? Register now while it’s still free! What is common practice in US? ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

I agree with you that the standard is very minimal, but when we deal the subject in construction contracts,though we specify the product with manufacturer name,the reference to International standards becomes mandatory.


The tensile splitting test is of no value since the pavers never see a similar loading because of the restraint and effects of the surrounding units. There are some features incorporated in the design of the paving units are not even addressed in C By joining you are opting in to receive e-mail.

It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. Thank you for helping keep Eng-Tips Forums free from inappropriate posts. Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. The specification also offers guidelines for physical requirements, sampling and testing, visual inspection, and rejection of specimens.

ASTM Standard for Concrete Unit pavers sudhirvasan – If you refer to a asfm ASTM or others in your specifications, make sure you understand the specification and note the requirements that are excluded or waived for your specific use. Is there any ASTM standard which has mention about face mix type 2 layer semi dry cast concrete pavers? Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

Digital Transformation may be defined in a number of different ways by analysts or enterprise software vendors. A typical concrete brick could be 12, psi. This specification is intended for interlocking concrete pavers used in the construction of paved surfaces and manufactured from cementitious materials, aggregates, chemical admixtures, and other constituents such as integral water repellents.

Aztm psi compressive strength requirement is very low and a manufacturer could not afford to make the minimal units because this would require compromising other factors including handling and wstm. Perhaps the supplier you mentioned can address the variation if they are active in writing the ASTM standard. Kindly share your experience and knowledge. To my knowledge, the the units you have visualized are not the typical “interlocking concrete pavers” that the specification written for, which is for heavy loads wheel loads than can be carried if installed properly.


This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. Thank you Mr Dick. I am sure they have had units tested in a lab somewhere that may have an acceptable machine to test such a long unit if the C9936 standards were used. In your case, the ASTM contains a requirement that the the length to thickness of the unit be less than 4. The face layer does present some problems regarding determining durability testing, but does not preclude the use of a face layer, since it zstm a standard for type of construction material.

This can effect wstm applicability of this factor based on the testing of the sample you referred to.

Which abrasion resistance test is more recommended for concrete unit pavers? The Eng-Tips staff will check this out and take appropriate action. Engineer and international traveler asym in construction techniques, problems and proper design.

Dick Engineer and international traveler interested in construction techniques, problems and proper design. There are also very few if any manufacturers that meet the standards for the installation requirements.

The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Local sellers, however, should be consulted as to availability of units having the desired features. Dear All, Kindly help me with your expertise knowledge in the below questions. If yes which standard is referred for this type of pavers?
