Noon – 1 p.m. Eastern
Concrete mixtures can be developed to provide a wide range of mechanical and durability properties to meet the design requirements of a structure. The compressive strength of concrete is the most common measure used by engineers in designing buildings and other structures. This course will discuss why compressive strength is determined and how to test the strength of concrete. Learn the significance of the test results and what to look for when concrete fails a strength test. Slump, air, unit weight and temperature testing will also be included in this thorough discussion of concrete testing.
Participants who successfully complete this webinar will be able to:
- Interpret ASTM standards for concrete testing
- Define the uses of strength test results
- Identify causes of poor test results
