Content DescriptionThis report provides methods for estimating the in-place strength of concrete in new and existing construction. These methods include: rebound number, penetration resistance, pullout, pull-off, ultrasonic pulse velocity, maturity, and cast-in-place cylinders. The principle, inherent limitations, and repeatability of each method are reviewed. Procedures are presented for developing the relationship needed to estimate compressive strength from in-place results. Factors to consider in planning in-place tests are discussed, and statistical techniques to interpret test results are presented. The use of in-place tests for acceptance of concrete is introduced. The Appendix A provides information on the number of strength levels that should be used to develop the strength relationship and explains a regression analysis procedure that accounts for error in both dependent and independent variables. Keywords: coefficient of variation; compressive strength; construction safety; in-place tests; nondestructive tests; sampling; statistical analysis.
