The psi compressive strength requirement is very low and a manufacturer could not afford to make the minimal units because this would require compromising other factors including handling and astj. The tensile splitting test is of no value since the pavers never see a similar loading because of the restraint and effects of the surrounding units.

The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Thanks for your valuable comments. I agree with you that the standard is very minimal, but when we deal the subject in construction contracts,though we specify astn product with manufacturer name,the reference to International standards becomes mandatory. This paver is a long one, size mm x 72mm x mm,which has great potential for tensile splitting.

Thank you for helping keep Eng-Tips Forums free from inappropriate posts. The compressive strength is far below the level of the usual manufacturing equipment. Local sellers, however, should be consulted as to availability of units having the desired c963. Dear All, Kindly help me with your expertise knowledge in the below questions. ASTM Standard for Concrete Unit pavers sudhirvasan – If you refer to a standard ASTM or others in your specifications, make sure you understand the specification and note the requirements that are excluded or waived for your specific use.


To my knowledge, the the units you have visualized are not the typical “interlocking concrete pavers” that the specification written for, which is for heavy loads wheel loads than can be carried if wstm properly.
