Any creation by mankind withoutquality control remains in the vortex of dubiety so far as its sustainabilityand acceptability are taken into consideration. From the stroke of a painter’s brushdown to the task of making paper-made containers, this axiom holds good. And,in the art of engineering, no construction is acceptable without qualitycontrol. From the view point of this conception, a number of organizations likeISO, ASTM, AASHTO, BS, TRL, IRC, etc. have been evolved all over the world,especially in the developing world. The functions of these organizations are tofind out ways and means to control the quality and to identify the norms ofacceptability of building materials.
