Abstract

The compressive strength of concrete is an important factor in the design of concrete structures and pavements. To assure the quality of the concrete placed at the project, concrete compressive cylinders are made at the jobsite. These cylinders undergo a destructive test to determine their compressive strength. However, the determination of concrete compressive strength of the concrete actually in the structure or pavement is frequently desirable. For this reason, a nondestructive test of the concrete is required. A nondestructive test of concrete compressive strength should be economical, easily performed by field personnel, and capable of producing accurate, reproducible results. The nondestructive test should be capable of detecting the extent of poor concrete in a pavement or structure due to improper handling, placement, or variations in mixing or materials.
