Description of ASTM-C593 2005

ASTM C593-05

Historical Standard: ASTM C593-05 Standard Specification for Fly Ash and Other Pozzolans for Use With Lime for Soil Stabilization

SUPERSEDED (see Active link, below)


1. Scope

1.1 This specification covers the qualification of fly ash and other pozzolans for use with lime in plastic, nonplastic mixtures and other mixtures that affect lime pozzolanic reaction required by soil stabilization. Evaluation of pozzolans containing available lime, such as Class C fly ash, is given consideration. Pozzolans covered include artificial pozzolans such as fly ash, and natural pozzolans, such as diatomite and pumicite, in either raw or calcined state.

1.2 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test method portion, Sections 5 and 10 of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

2. Referenced Documents (purchase separately) The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
