Historical Standard: ASTM C215-97e1 Standard Test Method for Fundamental Transverse, Longitudinal, and Torsional Frequencies of Concrete Specimens
SUPERSEDED (see Active link, below)
1.1 This test method covers measurement of the fundamental transverse, longitudinal, and torsional frequencies of concrete prisms and cylinders for the purpose of calculating dynamic Young's modulus of elasticity, the dynamic modulus of rigidity (sometimes designated as 'the modulus of elasticity in shear'), and dynamic Poisson's ratio.
1.2 values in SI units are the standard.
1.3 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.
