How to Take Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in St. Louis, MO

ASTM and ACI have stringent instructions for how concrete samples are taken and stored in a concrete curing box. To ensure compliance, you must follow a specific procedure:

  • 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 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 specimens must be kept 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 keep it well-preserved in a concrete curing box until you can conduct both in-field and laboratory tests in St. Louis, MO to measure the concrete's compressive strength:

  • On-site Test: A small device, known as a Schmidt hammer, measures the rebound of a spring-loaded mass that is shot against the surface of the concrete.
  • 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.
