This test method covers the measurement of the electrical resistivity of water-barrier membrane-pavement systems when applied to concrete bridge decks.
Measurements shall be performed on the bituminous pavement surface covering the water-barrier membrane.
This test method utilizes a measure of electrical resistance between the saturated top surface of the water-barrier membrane and the reinforcing steel embedded in the concrete bridge deck.
The values measured represent the electrical resistance obtained with the equipment and procedures stated herein and do not necessarily agree or correlate with those using other equipment or procedures.
The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.
This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
