Abstract:
These test methods give procedures and criteria for tightness testing of environmental engineering concrete structures. They are applicable to liquid and gas containment structures constructed with concrete or a combination of concrete and other materials. This document includes hydrostatic, surcharged hydrostatic, and pneumatic tests. These test methods may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This document does not purport to address all of the safety problems associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this document to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations before use.
