Advantages to Concrete Curing Testing in Boston, MA

According to a report from ACI Committee 308, curing is "the process by which hydraulic-cement concrete matures and develops hardened properties over time." You need to be confident that your concrete is curing correctly for the best outcome in your project. By using a Darwin Chambers concrete curing box in Boston, MA, you can test to establish that your concrete:

  • Won't fall victim to crevices, also referred to as crazing
  • Has the required durability
  • Has the appropriate water tightness
  • Is resistant to wearing down
  • Has better volume stability
  • Is resistant to freezing and thawing

While the experts who prepare the concrete test cylinders and the Boston, MA lab the test is sent to will be accountable for a large part of the accuracy of the testing, their readings will not have any value if the reliability of the sample is endangered because the concrete was not stored correctly.

Correct Procedures for Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Boston, MA

ASTM and ACI have strict regulations for how concrete samples are taken and stored in a concrete curing box. To ensure you are adhering to regulations, you must take the following steps:

  • The procedure must be conducted by an ACI-Certified Grade 1 Concrete Field Technician.
  • The concrete cylinder must be characteristic of the concrete put in the slab, made up of two different samples from the middle of the concrete load.
  • The technician must record the temperature of the ambient air and the concrete.
  • You must perform a slump test and an air test.
  • The cylinders must be kept in a concrete curing box where they will not be agitated and cannot exceed 80°F or go below 60°F.

Once you have a concrete specimen, you must keep it well-preserved in a concrete curing box until you can carry out both in-field and laboratory tests in Boston, MA to measure the concrete's compressive strength:

  • In-Field Test: A Schmidt hammer fires a spring-loaded mass at the concrete in order to measure the value of the rebound.
  • Laboratory Test: In a lab, the concrete will be placed in a machine that places increasing amounts of pressure on each end of the cylinder until it cracks or breaks.
