require tests of cores drilled from the area in question. Three cores are required for each strength test that falls below the specified strength, and the cores must be taken in accordance with ASTM C 42, "Standard Test Method for Obtaining and Testing Drilled Cores and Sawed Beams of Concrete." References: ACI 31808, Section
Test smart – Build right Testing for Concrete Strength •Quality control and acceptance testing Standardized curing conditions Indior of potential strength Code compliance •Inplace strength Investigate low test results for standardcured specimens (cylinders or cubes) Determine if constructions loads can be applied Evaluate existing structures
The hardened concrete cubes are tested for compressive strength at 7, 28 and 56 days after casting by crushing, in accordance with BS EN 123903. Where required results can be emailed immediately, and test certifies are normally issued within 48 hours of completion.
Chloride testing (and other chemical tests) of concrete can provide extremely useful information regarding the cause of defects or damage to concrete. The chemical concrete tests most frequently carried out are Chloride Test, Cement Content Test, Concrete Carbonation Test, Sulphate Test, Type of Cement Test and the Alkali Test.

British Standards (BS) are the standards produced by the BSI Group which is incorporated under a royal charter and which is formally designated as the national standards body (NSB) for the UK. The BSI Group produces British Standards under the authority of the charter, which lays down as one of the BSI's objectives to: Set up standards of quality for goods and services, and prepare and promote ...
Flexure Test . After the Splitting tensile test another common test performed for determination of tensile strength is the Flexure test. The test could be performed in accordance with as per BS 1881 : Part 118 : 1983. A simple plain concrete beam is loaded at onethird span points.
The concrete all are covered with wet gunny sacks. After 24 hours, the mould is striped and the cubes are cured further by immersing them in water at temperature 19 to 21 o C until the testing date. Compressive strength tests are conducted on the cubes at the age of 7 days. Then, the mean compressive strengths are calculated.
Cement Standards and Concrete Standards. ASTM's cement and concrete standards are instrumental in the evaluation and testing of concrete, cement, and aggregates. Concrete can have different properties depending upon the mixture that is used in creating it, which contains cement, chemical admixtures, and aggregates.

Content Straight from the Experts. The idea that wisdom is knowledge shaped by practical experience goes to the heart of the gray pages. The manual is written, maintained, and edited by ASTM members of Subcommittee with wide and deep realworld backgrounds in concrete and aggregate testing.
· Sampling and Testing (Based on QCS 2010) Slump Test 1. Slump tests (and VSI testing when applicable) shall be carried out at the rate of one test per load of concrete delivered to the Site, or one test per 10 m³ whichever is the lesser for the first 50 m³ of concrete then at a rate of 1 slump test for every 50 m³.
Concrete Structures, recognized a need for standardized criteria as well as a standardized method of testing reinforced concrete structures for watertightness. AWWA's Committee 400, Waterproofing, was also interested in documenting the stateoftheart of watertightness testing and criteria for .
more of the several standard tests cited in the following sections and tables. However, the fact that aggregates satisfy ASTM C 33 or AASHTO M 6/M 80 requirements does not necessarily assure defectfree concrete. For adequate consolidation of concrete, the desirable amount of air, water, cement, and fine aggregate (that is,
Masonry, Concrete and Cement Testing. BSI operates a wide range of BSI Kitemark schemes covering concrete and masonry as well as offering a full CE marking service for cement based products, aggregates, admixtures, building limes and other similar products. Our service includes a BSI Kitemark scheme that covers cements conforming to EN 1971.
