Title: Quality Assurance Using Accelerated
Author(s): Joseph F. Lamond
Publication: Concrete International
Appears on pages(s): 47-51
Keywords: accelerated tests; compressive strength; concrete construction; quality control.
Abstract:Proposes adopting procedures using accelerated strength testing to determine concrete quality. The accelerated test has been used by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers on a number of projects since 1978. Data from one of the first projects has been evaluated, concluding that concrete can be controlled during production by using one-day test results and that the potential strength of a later age can be predicted accurately from such results. Designers can accept that predicted potential strength is as reliable as tests performed at the age required for the specified compressive strength. ASTM Test Method C 684, warm water method, was used in the construction project.
