A new ASTM International standard will
aid engineers and specifiers looking to
understand the quality and strength of
cement contained in geosynthetic cementitious composite mats (GCCMs). ASTM's
geosynthetics committee developed the
new standard, which is needed to allow
for a consistent industry method for the
application of compression strength in
GCCMs. GCCMs are flexible, concreteimpregnated fabrics that harden on hydration to form a thin, durable waterproof and
fire-resistant concrete layer. According to
ASTM International member Joe Royer,
vice president of research and development,
ClockSpring NRI, the new standard (soon
to be published as D8329) will be critical for
manufacturers' ability to compare cement
quality in their products. He notes it will
also be important to asset owners, engineers
and contractors to ensure that compression
data reported on GCCM technical data
sheets are measured for field-applicable
water-to-cementitious material ratios.
