Standard Method of Test for
Effect of Organic Impurities in Fine
Aggregate on Strength of Mortar
AASHTO Designation: T 71-081
ASTM Designation: C 87-04
1.1.This test method covers the determination of the effect on mortar strength of the organic impurities in fine aggregate, whose presence is indicated by tests with T 21. Comparison is made between compressive strengths of mortar made with washed and unwashed fine aggregate.
1.2.The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
1.3This standard may involve hazardous materials, operations, and equipment. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to consult and establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
