Standard Test Method for Measuring Early-Age Compressive Strength and Projecting Later-Age Strength
|Publication Date:||28 July 1999|
|ICS Code (Concrete and concrete products):||91.100.30|
1.1 This test method covers a procedure for making, curing, and testing specimens of hardened concrete at early ages. The specimens are stored under standard-curing conditions and the measured temperature history is used to compute a maturity index that is related to strength gain.
1.2 This test method also covers a procedure for using the results of early-age compressive-strength
1.3 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.4 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 the standard.
1.5 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.
