What would an engineer of record want to see when specifying ASTM C780 for CMU construction on a non-load bearing single wyth wall. The test method calls out several possable tests including compressive strength, splitting tensile strength, air content and board life.
At what stages ie 7 days, 14 days or 28 days after casting should or would the EOR want to see results.
wouldn't treplets of fully grouted and ungrouted prisms tested for strength make for a more confident (competent) test?

There is proven benefit for product development teams in using an integrated design and data management system.
However, not all product teams can afford, need or want all the various modules in an enterprise PLM system.
Rapid prototyping has become a game-changing innovation for designers, engineers and manufacturers. Previously, the process of creating wood or metal prototypes took weeks or months and the cost was often so prohibitive that designers skipped prototypes entirely and went directly from CAD to tooling.
