ASTM C1245

Full Name

ASTM C1245 – Standard Test Method for Determining Relative Bond Strength Between Hardened Roller Compacted Concrete Lifts (Point Load Test)


This test method is intended for testing roller-compacted concrete specimens and covers determination of the relative bond between layers of roller-compacted concrete or other hardened concrete in multiple-lift forms of construction.

It is applicable to all types of layered roller-compacted concrete where the total depth is sufficient to meet the minimum specimen length and diameter requirements of this test method.

This test method is not intended to provide tensile strength results of the material tested.
