To ensure you are following guidelines, you must take the following steps: The concrete must be made, cured, and tested by an ACI-Certified Grade 1 Concrete Field Technician. The concrete cylinder must be a "representative sample," made up of the same concrete as it was poured. The technician must note an accurate reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the concrete. You must run a slump test and an air test. The samples must be placed in a concrete curing box where they are kept at a fixed temperature range between 60°F and 80°F. Once you have a concrete specimen, you must maintain it in a concrete curing box until you can carry out both on-site and laboratory tests in Albuquerque, NM to take a reading of the concrete's compressive strength: In-Field Test: A small device, known as a Schmidt hammer, measures the rebound of a spring-loaded mass that is shot against the surface of the concrete.
