Specification for Cube Mould, Beam Mould, Tamping Rod for Concrete testing

Test Standard : 10086-1982
 
The moulds shall be of following types:
 
a) Cube mould of 50, 100, 150,225 and 300 mm,
c) Beam mould  of 100 x 100 x 500 mm and 150 x 150 x 700 mm,

Special Requirements for  Cube Mould, Beam Mould

The molds will be of metal and will be sufficient to prevent deformation. They shall be constructed in such a manner as to allow the removal of molded specimens without damage and shall be designed in such a way that, when they are ready for use, the dimensions and inner faces shall be accurate within the prescribed limits. Will be The internal faces of the mold will be smooth.

Mold plates and the inside face of the base plate may contain blowflies and blemishes on the surface, such as honey-combing. All such blowholes and cavities shall be fitted with mild steel pins or by wehling and shall be finished flush with the surface either by machining or by filing.

However, the number of blowholes allowed on each plate can be greater than 50 and in the case of cubic molds of sizes 150 mm and 10, 150 mm and 10 are included, cylindrical molds of 150 mm diameter to 300 mm height and beam sizes. 100 x 100 x 500 mm and 150 x 150 x 700 mm.

The size of the blockhole in any direction cannot exceed 5 mm with a depth of 3 to 5 mm. In the case of cylindrical molds, the size of the blowhole / cavity cannot exceed 20–25 mm in any direction.

Cube Mould  
 

A cube mold of 50 mm size will be either a single mold or with more than one mold box, although the number of molds will not exceed 3. The cube size will be 100 mm, 150 mm, 225 mm and 300 mm. Separation of two parts with base plate.
