Concrete Testing

Vital to the structural integrity of bridges, highrises, and public infrastructure

Accurate concrete testing assists with compliance, early identification of defects and future cost savings.

Concrete testing is crucial to the structural integrity of most buildings and public infrastructure projects around the world. Concrete testing plays a major role in ensuring the safety, quality, and environmental impact of construction projects throughout Australia. Accurate concrete testing helps ensure compliance with regulations, identifies any defects early on, and can lead to future cost savings. We understand the importance of providing a genuinely adaptable service that includes expert on-site Technicians capable of delivering prompt guidance on critical results, whenever feasible.

Geotechnical Services offer a broad range of NATA accredited concrete testing services, including but not limited to;

  • Slump testing
  • Compressive strength testing
  • Mass per unit volume
  • Sampling concrete
  • Making, curing, and casting

 What is concrete testing?

Testing concrete is a crucial process that verifies if the concrete has been poured, set, and constructed accurately. By testing concrete, any deficiencies can be identified and rectified before they can cause any damage to the building or structure. Concrete is a durable material that is made by combining binding materials like cement, fly ash, or lime, aggregates like sand, gravel, stone, or brick chips, water, and admixtures.

The correct proportions of each product in the mix, as per the initial design, are crucial to ensure its strength and quality. On-site monitoring of the wet concrete is essential, with samples taken to confirm the consistency of all individual products and the mixing proportions. These samples are tested once the concrete has hardened, after which the strength and durability of the concrete can be confirmed after many days.

Concrete Testing

Methods for testing concrete strength

Compression testing

This method involves applying a compressive force to a concrete sample until it fails. The compressive strength of the concrete is then calculated based on the maximum load applied to the sample before failure.

Rebound hammer testing

This method involves striking the surface of a concrete structure with a rebound hammer and measuring the rebound of the hammer. The rebound value is then used to estimate the compressive strength of the concrete.

Core testing

This method involves drilling a core sample from a concrete structure and testing it in the laboratory for compressive strength. This method is used when it is not possible to test the in-situ concrete.

Concrete compression test

Compressive strength is a measure of the strength of hardened concrete This test assesses the ability of concrete to resist a load before failing. Although various tests can be used to evaluate concrete, the compressive strength test is particularly important since it offers contractors valuable insights into the strength properties of concrete, including how these properties may change over time.

A concrete compression test is a common method used to determine the compressive strength of concrete. It involves placing a cylindrical sample of concrete in a compression testing machine and subjecting it to gradually increasing force until it fails. The force applied to the concrete is measured and the compressive strength is calculated based on the maximum load that the concrete can bear before it fails. The results of this test provide information about the quality and strength of the concrete and can be used to assess its suitability for various applications.
