Concrete Cylinder Testing - From the Field to the Lab ...

Cylinder carriers and Cylinder lifting handles allow convenient handling of two cylinders at a time in the field or laboratory. Concrete cylinder transport racks are a safe and convenient way to transport concrete specimens in any vehicle. Placing discarded neoprene capping pads at the bottom of the racks provides extra protection during movement. Final Curing in the Laboratory

Debating Field-Cured Concrete Cylinder Testing

30/01/2020  In this scenario, the strength of the concrete may meet the industry standard after 24 hours, but thanks to the concrete cylinder test, labs will discover that the strength diminishes to well below the minimum accepted strength after only a few weeks. This gives the construction company the knowledge they need to avoid building a weak structure made of sub-par concrete. Thanks to the

Importance of Initial Curing Conditions of Test Cylinders

09/11/2018  Nowadays, this process includes making cylinders or beams on site and bringing them to the lab for strength testing, followed by a step procedure which is outlined in ASTM C31/C31M. This standard outlines the test procedure for two types of cylinders (or beams); standard-cured and field-cured. Both tests shouldn’t be confused with one another; the standard-cure provides acceptance for

WHAT are Concrete Test Cylinders?

CIP 34 - Making Cylinders In the Field WHAT are Concrete Test Cylinders? Most commonly, the compressive strength of concrete is measured to ensure that concrete delivered to a project meets the requirements of the specification and for quality control. For testing the compressive strength of concrete, cylindrical test specimens of size 4 u 8-in. (100 u 200-mm) or 6 u 12-in. (150 u 300-mm)

Field-Cured vs Standard-Cured Concrete Break Tests Giatec

02/06/2021  For example, one technician in a testing laboratory was testing high-strength field-cured and standard-cured specimens for quality assurance found that the field-cured specimens of high-strength concrete were consistently breaking at 25-35% lower strengths than the standard-cured cylinders. While it is assumed that the technician had been using ...

When making cylinders for acceptance of concrete, the field technician must test other properties of the fresh concrete to include temperature, slump, density (unit weight) and air content. This information should accompany the set of cylinders made for a particular pour or pour location. A strength test result is always the average of at least two specimens tested at the same age. A set of 2 ...
