ASTM C173 Video   ASTM C173 Volumetric Air Meter Test Video
This video demonstrates ASTM C173, the Standard Test Method for Air Content of Freshly Mixed Concrete by the Volumetric Method; it is commonly referred to as the Roll-a-Meter test. The Volumetric Air Test method covers the determination of the air content of freshly mixed concrete. It measures the air contained in the mortar fraction of the concrete; it is not affected by air that may be present inside the porous lightweight aggregate particles.
