Abstract:
Transport of 6 x 12 in. (15.2 x 30.5 mm) concrete test cylinders is difficult at many construction sites because of the bulky nature of the test specimens. It is generally not practical to safely carry more than one test specimen at a time. A simple collapsible handle for carrying such cylinders is described.*
