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. Composite samples are required by this practice, unless specifically excepted by procedures governing the tests to be performed such as tests to determine uniformity of consistency and mixer efficiency.

For example, wet-sieving concrete causes the loss of a small amount of air due to additional handling. Place only enough concrete on the sieve at any one time so that after sieving, the thickness of the layer of retained aggregate is not more than one particle thick.

Procedures used to select the specific test batches are not described in this practice, but it is recommended that random sampling be used to determine overall specification compliance. Obtain samples from at least five different portions of the pile and combine them into one composite sample for test purposes.


Smaller samples are not prohibited for routine air content, temperature, and ast tests.

Take the samples so obtained within the time limit specified in Section 4 and combine them into one composite sample for test purposes. Combining values from the two c12 may result in non-conformance with the standard. The containers shall be of a size sufficient to provide a composite sample size that is astmm agreement with the maximum aggregate size. After obtaining the composite sample, wait a minimum of 2 minutes and a maximum of 5 minutes before beginning tests Note 5.

Warning —Fresh hydraulic cementitious mixtures are caustic and may cause chemical burns to skin and tissue upon prolonged exposure. Scrape any mortar adhering to the sides of the wet-sieving equipment into the batch.

Shake or vibrate the sieve by hand or mechanical means until no undersize material remains on the sieve.

Avoid contamination with subgrade material or prolonged contact with and absorptive subgrade. Work Item s – proposed revisions of this standard.

Current edition approved Oct. Combine astk samples so obtained into one composite sample for test purposes. Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. CM – 12 – Microscopical Determination of The air content of the wet-sieved fraction of concrete is greater than that of the total concrete because the larger size aggregate which is removed does not contain air.


Complete these tests expeditiously.

Parte 1 de 2 Designation: Users of this standard are expressly advised that determination zstm the validity of any such patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, are entirely their own responsibility. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. Sample by repeatedly passing a receptacle through the entire discharge stream or by completely diverting the discharge into a sample container. NOTE 4—In some instances, the containers may have to be supported above the subgrade to prevent qstm during discharge.

Martins, Damasceno, Awada – Pronto-socorro Pronto-socorro: Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.

Agitators—Sample the concrete by collecting two or more portions taken at regularly spaced intervals during discharge of the middle portion of the batch. ASTM Volume Your comments will c72 careful consideration at a aastm of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend. Your comments are invited either for revision of this standard or for additional standards and should be addressed to ASTM International Headquarters.

Obtain these portions within the time limit specified in Section 4. These requirements apply to both tilting and nontilting mixers.
