New standards

  • AS 1012.4.1:2014 Methods of testing concrete - Determination of air content of freshly mixed concrete - Measuring reduction in concrete volume with increased air pressure
    Sets out the method for determining the air content of freshly mixed concrete from observations of the change in volume of the concrete when it is subjected to an increased air pressure. When performed for quality control purposes such as for plant production testing or for mixer uniformity tests, the apparent air content only may be sufficient. The results obtained are dependent on the compaction method used. This Standard provides for compaction of the sample by rodding or by vibration or by using self compacting concrete (SCC) placed in the bowl.
    Supersedes AS 1012.4.1-1999
  • AS 1012.4.2:2014 Methods of testing concrete - Determination of air content of freshly mixed concrete - Measuring reduction in air pressure in chamber above concrete
    Sets out the method for determining the air content of freshly mixed concrete from observations of the reduction in air pressure in a chamber above the concrete when the concrete is exposed to the air pressure. When performed for quality control purposes such as for plant production testing or for mixer uniformity tests, the apparent air content only may be sufficient. The air content shall be determined when specified. The results obtained are dependent on the compaction method used. This Standard provides for compaction of the sample by rodding or by vibration or by using self compacting concrete (SCC) placed in the bowl.
