How to Take Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Los Angeles, CA

ASTM and ACI have strict regulations for how concrete samples are taken and stored in a concrete curing box. To make sure you are obeying regulations, 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 characteristic of the concrete put in the slab, made up of at least two samples.
  • The technician must record the temperature of the ambient air and the specimen.
  • You must conduct 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.

Once you have a concrete cylinder, you must maintain it in a concrete curing box until you can perform both in-field and laboratory tests in Los Angeles, CA to take a reading of 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 sample can withstand.
