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

ASTM and ACI have stringent regulations for how to create samples and what humidity and temperature to store them at. To ensure you are adhering to guidelines, 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 take a precise reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the concrete.
  • You must carry out a slump test and an air test.
  • The cylinders must be kept in a concrete curing box where they are kept at a fixed temperature range between 60°F and 80°F.

In addition to the slump and air tests, you must perform both in-field and laboratory tests in Houston, TX to take a reading of 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 device that places increasing amounts of pressure on each end of the concrete until it cracks or breaks.
