Title: 350.1R-93: Testing Reinforced Concrete Structures for Watertightness
Publication: Technical Documents
Appears on pages(s): 5
Keywords: testing-evaluating strength tests
Abstract:Note: 350.1R-93 is available in PDF format. However, a newer version of this document exists. This document was replaced by 350.1-01/350.1R-01.
The recommendations included in this report are applicable to cast-in-place reinforced concrete water containment structures including tanks, reservoirs, basins, conduits, etc. The recommendations are for structures containing water or waste water. The recommendations are not necessarily applicable to the containment of other fluids, as the visdosities of other fluids are different. However, the water tightness test may be used to indicate the tightness, relative to water, for structures containing their fluids. The recommendations are not intended for prestressed concrete structures, for precast concrete structures such as culverts or pipes, for concrete paved structures such as channel and impoundments, for hazardness material containment structures, or for gas containment structures.
