ASTM tables long-term connection test method for SRWs pending industry review

from NCMA

Representatives from the National Concrete Masonry Association and industry participated recently in meetings of the ASTM Committee D35 on Geosynthetics, where the development of a standardized long-term connection test method is being considered for the purposes of evaluating segmental retaining wall systems using geosynthetic soil-reinforcement. While test methods exist for this purpose, none of those methods have been approved through a consensus process like ASTM. The committee elected to table further development of the standard method to provide those in the SRW industry an opportunity to present a review of existing data and test methods to the group at their next meeting.
