Testing of Concrete

Definition: a trial, examination, observation, or evaluation used as a means of measuring either a physical or a chemical characteristic of a material, or a physical characteristic of either a structural element or a structure.- ACI Concrete Terminology


In testing, the aim is to determine quality. The testing of concrete, concrete masonry, and their reinforcement is commonly used by design professionals during structural assessment and retrofit planning. The testing of materials may be performed to supply routine information on the quality of a products (control testing), to develop new or better information on known materials or to develop new materials, or to obtain accurate measures of fundamental properties or physical constants.
