  • Won't develop crevices, also known as crazing

How to Take Concrete Curing Samples in the Field in Vancouver, BC

ASTM and ACI have strict standards for how concrete samples are taken and stored in a concrete curing box. To ensure 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 record the temperature of the ambient air and the concrete.
  • The worker must perform a slump test and an air test.
  • The specimens must be placed in a concrete curing box where they will not be agitated and are kept within 60°F and 80°F at all times.

Once you have a concrete cylinder, you must keep it well-preserved in a concrete curing box until you can perform in-field tests and send samples to a lab in Vancouver, BC 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: In a lab, the concrete will be placed in a device that places increasing amounts of pressure on each end of the specimen until it cracks or breaks.
