Correct Procedures for Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Austin, TX

ASTM and ACI have strict regulations for how to create samples and what humidity and temperature to store them at. To ensure compliance, you must take the following steps:

  • The procedure must be performed by an ACI-Certified Grade 1 Concrete Field Technician.
  • The concrete cylinder must be characteristic of the concrete poured on-site, made up of the same concrete as it was poured.
  • The technician must record the temperature of the ambient air and the specimen.
  • You must run a slump test and an air test.
  • The specimens must be placed in a concrete curing box where they will not be perturbed and are kept within 60°F and 80°F at all times.

Once you have a concrete specimen, you must maintain it in a concrete curing box until you can perform in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Austin, TX to test the concrete's compressive strength:

  • On-site 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.
  • Laboratory Test: In a lab, the concrete will be placed in a machine that places increasing amounts of pressure on each end of the concrete until it cracks or breaks.
