This paver is a long one, size mm x 72mm x mm,which has great potential for tensile splitting. Local sellers, however, should be consulted as to availability of units asmt the desired features. What is common practice in US? 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.

The asmt of pavers made using a wet cast method is not common because the wet cast units are probably not cost effective.

ASTM Standard for Concrete Unit pavers – ASTM (testing materials) Code Issues – Eng-Tips

I am working in Kuwait. It’s easy to join and it’s free. Thank you Mr Dick. Are you an Engineering professional? Perhaps the supplier you mentioned can address the variation if they are active in writing the ASTM standard.

The tensile splitting test is of no value since the pavers never see a similar loading because of the restraint and effects of the surrounding units. 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.

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

This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. This can effect the applicability of this factor based on the testing of the sample you referred to. How important is the split tensile strength test for concrete pavers?


Kindly share your experience and knowledge. To my knowledge, the the units you have visualized are not the typical “interlocking concrete pavers” that the specification written for, which is for heavy loads wheel loads than can be carried if installed properly.

There are also very few if any manufacturers that meet the standards for the installation requirements.

Dear All, Kindly help me with your expertise knowledge in the below questions. The specification also offers guidelines for physical requirements, sampling and testing, visual inspection, and c396 of specimens. ASTM usually does not get involved in manufacturing processes, but only specifies the minimum standards of the units. Digital Transformation may be defined in a number of different ways by analysts or enterprise software vendors.

In your case, the ASTM asrm a requirement that the the length to thickness of the unit be less than 4. I am talking about case in middle east.

Thank you for helping keep Eng-Tips Forums free from inappropriate posts. In my opinion, the standard is very minimal and the demands of the specifiers and contractors over-ride the of the ASTM standard.

Thanks for your valuable comments.
