How to Estimate Strength of Concrete Using NDT Methods

How To Estimate Strength of Concrete Using NDT Methods?

In this article, we will briefly review how to Estimate Strength of Concrete Using NDT Methods. Compressive strength of concrete is by far the most important property of concrete. It represents the mechanical properties of concrete; for example, the 28 days compressive strength of concrete cylinders is the key parameter in most design codes (ACI 318-14, CSA Read more about How To Estimate Strength of Concrete Using NDT Methods?[…]

How to Evaluate Compressive Strength of Concrete

What is the best method for the measurement of compressive strength of concrete? Testing cylinders and cubes in compression is the most convenient and well-known method for measuring the strength. The main question is if one can design and develop a method that can measure the strength faster, easier, and more accurate? Can all the Read more about How to Evaluate Compressive Strength of Concrete[…]
