This testing method helps determine the differences in aastm strength bewtween stones of varying dimension and is one element in wstm stones of the same type. A fine abrasive finish on planes perpendicular to the load along with fine saw finish on all other planes are required. WaveMatrix 2 for Dynamic Testing. For example, a test for Slip Resistance would not be necessary for stone used in a vertical application, which will never receive foot traffic.

Committees are established which c8800 on and have jurisdiction over standards for different designations, such as Dimensional Stone Committee C18 or Cement Committee C Most architectural specifications require that stone meet certain specified ASTM or other testing standards before it will be accepted for use. ASTM C C determines the flexural strength of stone by use of a simple beam using quarter-point loading. Subscribe to Our Newsletters.

Buyers and sellers of materials, products, and services include these standards in contracts; engineers, scientists, architects, and designers use them in their work; government agencies reference them in codes and regulations; and many others refer to them for performance information.


The required testing should be reviewed and, atsm test results are not available for the stone product, then testing should be performed by the quarry or representative company as required. If a stone with a below-minimum flexural strength is used for a lintel, then it may be more likely to fail, thus causing damage and possible injury.
