A proposed new ASTM standard will provide proper direction and ensure adequate documentation to aid in the interpretation, understanding and reduction of variance in test results for fiber-reinforced concrete.
ASTM WK35250, Practice for Fiber-Reinforced Concrete for Making and Curing Test Specimens in the Laboratory and Field, is now being developed by Subcommittee C09.42 on Fiber-Reinforced Concrete, part of ASTM Committee C09 on Concrete and Concrete Aggregates.
ASTM WK35250 describes testing done by means of external vibration, which is effective for fiber-reinforced concrete. Testing agencies and those who specify testing of fiber concrete will use the proposed standard once it has been approved.
All interested parties are invited to participate in the development of ASTM WK35250.
