Guide for Obtaining Cores and Interpreting Compressive Strength Results

Description Core testing is the most direct method to determine the in-place compressive strength of concrete in a structure.Generally, cores are obtained to:•Assess, if required, whether concrete in a new structurecomplies with strength-based acceptance criteria; or•Determine in-place concrete strengths in an existingstructure for evaluation of structural capacity.In new construction, cylinder strength tests failing to meetstrength-based …
