AS 1742 Manual of uniform traffic control devices

AS 1742.2-2009 Traffic control devices for general use

Specifies requirements for regulatory and warning signs, pavement markings and other devices for general use on roads including expressway type roads, and sets out the way they are applied at intersections and interchanges, between intersections, and at a number of specific situations including substandard horizontal and vertical curves, approaches to structures and obstructions, changes in pavement width, climbing and overtaking lanes, steep grades and water crossings.

AS 3959-2009 Construction of buildings in bushfire-prone areas

This 2009 edition of AS 3959 has been published by Standards Australia as an Australian Standard. It sets out requirements for the construction of buildings in bushfire-prone areas in order to improve their performance when they are subjected to burning debris, radiant heat or flame contact generated from a bushfire. Also includes a methodology for assessing categories of bushfire attack in respect of a site situated in an area that has been designated by a relevant authority as bushfire-prone.

AS 4828 Degradability of plastics - Methods of test

AS 4828.1-2009 Determination of level of prodegradant ions

Sets out a method for a rapid analysis of the concentration of prodegradant present in plastic specimens. This test method does not provide information on whether or not the degradable plastics will degrade. The results of this test method may be required to be reported by other Test Methods in this series where test specimens have been subjected to those test methods.

AS 4943.1-2009 Characteristics of terrestrial digital audio broadcasting (T-DAB+) transmissions

This Standard specifies requirements for digital terrestrial radio transmissions (T-DAB+) in Australia, including the audio and data coding, the characteristics of the transport stream, the channel coding and the modulation system to be used.

AS 4969 Analysis of acid sulfate soil - Dried samples - Methods of test

AS 4969.12-2009 Complete suspension peroxide oxidation combined acidity and sulfur (SPOCAS) method

Specifies a method for the determination of pH in a 1 M KCl soil suspension, and, where required, titratable actual acidity (TAA) in acid sulfate soil. Following this, potassium chloride extractable sulfur (SKCl), calcium (CaKCl) and magnesium (MgKCl) are determined. On a separate test portion, peroxide pH (pHOX), titratable peroxide acidity (TPA) and excess acid neutralizing capacity (ANCE) are determined following digestion with 30% hydrogen peroxide. Following this, peroxide sulfur (SP), calcium (CaP) and magnesium (MgP) are determined. On samples where jarosite is present, or pHKCl < 4.5, residual acid soluble sulfur (SRAS) is determined on the soil residue remaining after peroxide digestion.

AS 4969.13-2009 Determination of acid neutralizing capacity by back-titration (ANCBT)

Specifies a method for the determination of acid neutralizing capacity (ANCBT) in acid sulfate soil by back titration of excess acid following hydrochloric acid digestion. This determination is used to estimate acid neutralizing capacity (ANC).

AS 4969.14-2009 Calculation of the acid-producing potential of acid sulfate soil using an acid base accounting method

Provides an acid base accounting method to calculate the net acid-producing potential of acid sulfate soil materials by individually assessing the acid producing capacity due to oxidation of inorganic sulfides, the existing acidity and the effective acid consuming capacity.

ATS 5200 Technical Specification for plumbing and drainage products

ATS 5200.501-2009 Anti-infiltration overflow relief point

This Australian Technical Specification sets out the requirements for a moulded PVC-U anti-infiltration overflow relief device, of nominal size DN 100, that is intended, upon installation in an overflow (relief) gully, to prevent the infiltration of surface waters to the sewerage and drainage systems and provide for the overflow relief of any surcharge of the sewerage and drainage systems.
