To ensure compliance, 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 a precise reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the sample. The worker must perform a slump test and an air test. The samples must be placed in a concrete curing box where they will not be perturbed and never go below 60°F or above 80°F. After the slump and air tests, you must conduct in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Baltimore, MD to measure 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.
