To ensure you are obeying guidelines, you must follow a certain procedure: The concrete must be made, cured, and tested by an ACI-Certified Grade 1 Concrete Field Technician. The concrete cylinder must be characteristic of the concrete poured on-site, made up of two different samples from the middle of the concrete load. The technician must take a precise reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the concrete. You must run a slump test and an air test. The cylinders must be stored in a concrete curing box where they are kept at a fixed temperature range between 60°F and 80°F. After the slump and air tests, you must carry out both in-field and laboratory tests in Charleston, SC to measure the concrete's compressive strength: On-site Test: A Schmidt hammer fires a spring-loaded mass at the concrete in order to measure the value of the rebound. Laboratory Test: A compressive strength lab test will apply force to each end of the cylinder until it breaks to see how much pressure the concrete can withstand.
