Professional engineer and ASTM contributing member, Colin Lobo will provide a section by section overview of the changes to ASTM C94 Specification for Ready Mixed Concrete.
ASTM C94 is one of the primary standards maintained by ASTM Committee C09 on Concrete and Aggregates.The specification establishes the responsibilities of the purchaser and manufacturer of ready mixed concrete and establishes the basis by which concrete is ordered and accepted on project sites.
ASTM C94 is intended to protect the entities involved by establishing requirements for concrete production facilities and delivery vehicles. It is invoked by reference in the adopted building codes in the US and in most project specifications.
