Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

ASTM Committee C09 on Concrete and Concrete Aggregates celebrated 100 years of standards development for the concrete industry at its recent meeting in Toronto. The committee was formed in 1914 and has developed standards over this period for constituent materials of concrete, with the exception of cement, test methods and practices. The committee maintains 176 standards that are published in the Annual Book of ASTM Standards, Volume 04.02. The development of standards is facilitated by 31 subcommittees and 1,400 members, of which about 200 attend the meetings in June and December. The standards developed by C09 in concert with those developed by ACI on design and construction, including the ACI 318 Building Code, are essential to civil infrastructure in the U.S. and other countries.
The centennial was commemorated with a dinner event attended by 150 people. Past C09 chairmen Doug Hooton and Tony Fiorato and current Chairman Steve Parker addressed the attendees and elucidated on the progress made by the committee and the credibility and value of the standards it develops and maintains. The committee is ably managed by Staff Manager Scott Orthey.
