Abstract:
The detailed check list presented was developed for use by concrete inspectors. The check list, when properly used, will familiarize the inspector with the batch plant, will indicate any items not complying with the specifications, and will indicate items not considered sound batching and mixing procedures. The check list is comprehensive to provide for the many variables encountered in batching and mixing plants and will not apply in its entirety to any particular plant. The major uses of the check list and the contributions to the quality control of concrete production are: (1) Determination of specification compliance of a concrete batching and mixing plant prior to start of operations; (2) Evaluation of a concrete plant and its operation; and (3) Familiarization of a concrete inspector with the batching plant and its operation; and (4) Assistance in training concrete inspectors for batchplant operations.
