To ensure you are complying with regulations, you must follow a certain procedure: The procedure must be carried out 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 note a precise reading of the temperature of the ambient air and the specimen. The worker must run a slump test and an air test. The cylinders must be stored in a concrete curing box where they will not be agitated and are kept within 60°F and 80°F at all times. After the slump and air tests, you must perform both in-field and laboratory tests in Rochester, NY to measure the concrete's compressive strength: On-site Test: A small device, known as a Schmidt hammer, fires a spring-loaded mass with a defined energy against the surface and reads how elastic or strong the concrete is. 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.
