  • Concrete Permeability and Performance Monitoring

    The permeability of concrete plays an important role in the long-term performance and durability of this material while exposed to aggressive environments. Even in the case of internal damaging mechanisms such as alkali-aggregate reaction, low permeability, results in impeding the rate of damage propagation. Various methods have been utilized to assess concrete permeability such as water ...

  • ASTM D2752 / D2752M - 88(2011)e1 Standard Test Methods for Air Permeability of Asbestos Fibers

    The degree of fiberization or subdivision of the asbestos fiber bundles in a specimen is related to its resistance to air flow. The number and size of the pores in the specimen are a function of the size of the fiber bundles and determine the resistance to air flow through the plug. Test specimens that have undergone a higher degree of fiberization will yield higher ...

  • Paving with good intentions: Warrenville to test eco-friendly road

    Warrenville will test a new road surface that seems a throwback to horse-and-buggy days, but has a modern spin. City officials believe they will be among the first in the Chicago area to install permeable pavers to control polluted runoff on a busy thoroughfare. During a $4.5-million reconstruction of Warrenville Road beginning this spring, pavers will be placed on the milelong stretch between ...

  • ASTM A341 / A341M - 00(2011) standard test method for direct current magnetic properties of materials using D-C permeameters and the ballistic test methods

    Permeameters require the use of yokes to complete the magnetic circuit and are therefore inherently less accurate than ring test methods. Refer to Test Method A596/A596M for further details on ring test methods. However, when testing certain shapes as bars or when magnetic field strength in excess of 200 Oe [15.9 or more kA/m] are required, permeameters are the only practical means of measuring ...
