The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials’ new standard, "Characterization of the Air-Void System of Freshly Mixed Concrete by the Sequential Pressure Method," validates a device measuring void spacing and air content in about 10 minutes. The Super Air Meter (SAM) is a modified version of the vessel used in ASTM C231, Standard Test Method for Air Content of Freshly Mixed Concrete by the Pressure Method, and was developed at Oklahoma State University.
