Standard Specification for Solid Concrete Interlocking Paving Units

I am working in Kuwait. Local sellers, however, should be consulted as to availability of units having the desired features. Click Here to join Eng-Tips and talk with other members!

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


As you said,Tensile f936 strength has little effect if the pavers are of interlocking type. Thanks for your valuable comments. The face layer does present some problems regarding determining durability testing, but does not preclude the use of a face layer, since it is a standard for type of construction material.

Perhaps the supplier you mentioned can address the variation if they are active in writing the ASTM standard.

Thank you Mr Dick. Digital Transformation may be defined in a number of different ways by analysts or enterprise software vendors. This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. Kindly share your experience and knowledge. How important is the split tensile strength test for concrete pavers?

The Eng-Tips staff will check this out and take appropriate action. Posting Guidelines Promoting, selling, recruiting, coursework and thesis posting is forbidden. There are also very few if any manufacturers that meet the standards for the installation requirements. Are you an Engineering professional? 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.


ASTM C / CM – 18 Standard Specification for Solid Concrete Interlocking Paving Units

The specification also offers guidelines for physical requirements, sampling and testing, visual inspection, and rejection of specimens. Is there any ASTM standard which has mention about face mix type 2 layer semi dry cast concrete pavers? The use of pavers made using a wet cast method is not common because the wet cast units are probably not cost effective. The tensile splitting test is of no value since the pavers never see a similar loading because of the restraint and effects of asgm surrounding units.


There are some features incorporated in the design of the paving units are not even addressed in C ASTM usually does not get involved in manufacturing processes, but c36 specifies the minimum standards of the units. Engineer and international traveler interested in construction techniques, problems and proper design. Historical Asym s – view previous versions of standard. Defense manufacturing is all about project manufacturing and project accounting. 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.
