Title: Study of a Method for Testing Concrete in the Field
Author(s): C.A. Wiepking
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 212-237
Abstract:In 1926 Messrs. Clemmer and Burggraf published the results of their series of tests investigating the possibilites of using beam specimens for field tests on concrete. The cantilever beam test was proposed to replace the test on the standard 6 x 12-in. concrete cylinder. The intention was to avoid the inconvenience entailed in sending concrete cylinders to the testing laboratory, and also the variations that commonly occur in compression tests.
