TH125 - What to Do When Test Results Suggest Unsatisfactory Concrete Performance

Thursday, January 23 from 1:30 PM to 3:00 PM | Room N232, North Hall, Las Vegas Convention Center « Back

Test results can give the contractor and producer critical information about concrete performance, in addition to informing the designer and owner about specification compliance.  But what does it mean when test results hit the fan?  What’s the difference between a single low break and a pattern of poor performance?  What does slump really tell us?  What does an air meter tell us and what can’t it tell us?  Do the details of the test methods really matter?  How can we manage test data to help predict problems instead of reacting to them?

  1. Examine what test results are supposed to tell us about the concrete
  2. Determine why check tests are needed to verify apparent poor performance
  3. Identify variability in results and common testing problems
  4. Explore how to keep track of concrete performance
