Abstract

This paper reviews the development of six test methods for composite materials intended for civil engineering infrastructure applications. These test methods have been transitioned from model test methods published by the American Concrete Institute to approved ASTM standard test methods under the jurisdiction of ASTM Committee D30, Composite Materials. The test methods focus on two of the most widespread uses of composite materials in civil infrastructure applications: internal composite material reinforcements for concrete and externally bonded composites for repair of concrete and other structures. The methods establish standard material properties such as strength and modulus and also address application-specific information such as pull-off strength and the development of lap splices and goes on to describe the scope, application, and interferences for each of the test methods. The authors are the D30 members primarily responsible for the development of the concrete infrastructure-related ASTM standards.
