A committee was set up in 1981 by the Cembureau Working Party on the Quality of Concrete with the following aims and objectives:
To develop a suitable method for the measurement of the permeability of concrete to gas or water and to determine the effects of mix proportions and curing.
To establish the feasibility of obtaining concordant results in a number of participating laboratories.
Eight European laboratories have participated in the study and carried out a number of co-operative programmes in the course of six years. This recommendation of the method. inclusive of apparatus and procedure, is based on the findings of the committee. The work has given rise to a number of reports, some of which have been published with the approval of this committee. A limited bibliography of recent papers which the committee has considered and discussed will be found appended to this recommendation.
The chairmen of this committee were Mr H. W. W. Pollitt (1981–85) and Mr P. Dutron (1985–87). The address of Cembureau is 55 rue d’Arlon, B-1040 Bruxelles, Belgium.
