Why You Need Concrete Curing Testing in Kansas City, MO

Correct Procedures for Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Kansas City, MO

ASTM and ACI have stringent regulations for how concrete samples are taken and stored in a concrete curing box. To make sure you are obeying guidelines, you must take the following steps:

  • The procedure must be performed 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 an accurate reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the specimen.
  • The technician must carry out a slump test and an air test.
  • The specimens must be kept in a concrete curing box where they will not be disturbed and are kept within 60°F and 80°F at all times.

Once you have a concrete cylinder, you must maintain it in a concrete curing box until you can carry out in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Kansas City, MO 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: 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.
