ACI 229R-94 that the suitability of a non-standard aggregate should be tested in a CLSM mixture
to determine whether it meets specified requirements, is encouraged.
Use of non-standard, discarded, or recycled materials in CLSM is a rapidly evolving area.
Broadening industry experience in this area and improvements in mix designs incorporating such
materials are expected.
