Abstract:Note: A newer version of this document exists. This document was replaced by 350.1-10.
This standard gives methods and criteria for tightness testing of environmental engineering concrete structures. It is applicable to liquid and gas containment structures constructed with concrete or a combination of concrete and other materials. It includes hydrostatic, surcharged hydrostatic, and pneumatic tests. The standard is written in explicit, mandatory language, and as such, is intended for reference in project specifications. The values stated in inch-pounds are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only. The text of this standard is accompanied by a commentary which provides explanatory material. The commentary shall not be considered as requirements of the standard. This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems associated with its use.
