A lysimeter is a device that collects water from overlying materials that can be tested for soluble constituents that were dissolved during rainwater percolation through the material. A laboratory batch water leach test, column leach test, and below subbase lysimeter study evaluated leachate from bottom ash. Leachates were analyzed for concentrations of cadmium Cdchromium Crselenium Seand silver Ag and compared to groundwater quality standards for Wisconsin. Peak concentrations in the lysimeters below 60 cm of bottom ash were all above peak concentrations found from the laboratory water leach test and were above the peak concentrations from the laboratory column leach test for Cd, Se, and Ag.
Find Labs Abstract This specification defines the requirements for grading and quality of fine and coarse aggregate for use in concrete. Fine aggregate shall consist of natural sand, manufactured sand, or a combination thereof.
Fine aggregate shall be free of injurious amounts of organic impurities. Fine aggregate for use in concrete that will be subject to wetting, extended exposure to humid atmosphere, or contact with moist ground shall not contain any materials that are deleteriously reactive with the alkalis in the cement in amount sufficient to cause excessive expansion of mortar or concrete.
Fine aggregate subjected to five cycles of the soundness test shall have a required weighted average loss.
Coarse aggregate shall consist of gravel, crushed gravel, crushed stone, air-cooled blast furnace slag, or crushed hydraulic-cement concrete, or a combination thereof. The sampling and test methods shall be done with grading and fineness modulus test, organic impurities test, effect of organic impurities on strength test, soundness test, clay lumps and friable particles test, coal and lignite test, bulk density of slag test, abrasion of coarse aggregate test, reactive aggregate test, freezing and thawing test, and chert test method.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard.
It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
This specification is regarded as adequate to ensure satisfactory materials for most concrete. It is recognized that, for certain work or in certain regions, it may be either more or less restrictive than needed.
For example, where aesthetics are important, more restrictive limits may be considered regarding impurities that would stain the concrete surface. The specifier should ascertain that aggregates specified are or can be made available in the area of the work, with regard to grading, physical, or chemical properties, or combination thereof.
Those responsible for selecting the proportions for the concrete mixture shall have the responsibility of determining the proportions of fine and coarse aggregate and the addition of blending aggregate sizes if required or approved.
The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
These notes and footnotes excluding those in tables and figures shall not be considered as requirements of this standard.Introduction to Troubleshooting Concrete Quality concrete is a mixture of cement, water, and aggregates that will ultimately meet the requirements for which it is designed.
