ASTM International to Host Organizational Meeting on Stormwater Control Measures

New stormwater management standards could support efforts to reduce pollution from stormwater runoff, create uniform testing, verification, and certification programs for stormwater control measures, unify varied stakeholders, and much more. 

Manufacturers, users, trade associations, professional societies, government agencies, consumer groups, academia, engineers, and testers are driving this effort. They are interested in creating standards in areas such as laboratory performance methods, field monitoring practices, and installation and maintenance guides, among others.

Proposed Medical Devices Standard Will Help Validate Cleaning Methods

A proposed ASTM International standard presents methods for detecting and quantifying cleaning markers (analytes) on reusable medical devices. ASTM’s committee on medical and surgical materials and devices (F04) is developing the proposed standard.

New Standard Will Support Measuring Quality of Cement in Geosynthetic Composite Mats

A new ASTM International standard aid engineers and specifiers looking to understand the quality and strength of cement contained in geosynthetic cementitious composite mats (GCCMs). ASTM’s geosynthetics committee developed the new standard, which is needed to allow for a consistent industry method for the application of compression strength in GCCMs.

Proposed Guide Supports Evaluation of Cavity Wall Facades

A proposed standard will be used to support the periodic assessment of cavity wall facades. ASTM’s committee on the performance of buildings (E06) is developing the standard. In cavity wall facades, a grid of wall ties provides lateral restraint between the exterior veneer and the back-up wall. The proposed guide will support stability assessments of such facades.

New ASTM International Standard Will Help in Sulfur Dioxide Removal

A new standard from ASTM International’s coal and coke committee (D05) covers the determination of the quality of flue gas desulfurization (FGD) solids that are products of processes used to remove sulfur dioxide from exhaust gasses at fossil-fuel power plants and waste incinerators.
