Correct Procedures for Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Columbus, OH

ASTM and ACI have stringent 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 a "representative sample," made up of the same concrete as it was poured.
  • The technician must record the temperature of the ambient air and the sample.
  • The worker must conduct a slump test and an air test.
  • The cylinders 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 sample, you must maintain it in a concrete curing box until you can carry out in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Columbus, OH to test 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: A compressive strength lab test will apply force to each end of the cylinder until it breaks to see how much pressure the sample can withstand.
