RELATION OF REBOUND-HAMMER TEST RESULTS TO SONIC MODULUS AND COMPRESSIVE-STRENGTH DATA

THIS PRESENTATION INDICATES THE RELATIONSHIPS, TRUE OR INCIDENTAL, WHICH EXIST BETWEEN THE AMOUNT OF REBOUND ON CONCRETE OF A LIGHT STEEL HAMMER AND OTHER PARTICULAR PROPERTIES OF THE CONCRETE, SUCH AS COMPRESSIVE AND FLEXURAL STRENGTH AND SONIC MODULUS OF ELASTICITY. THE ANALYSIS IS BASED ON DATA OBTAINED FROM 6-BY-12-INCH CONCRETE CYLINDERS AND 6-BY-6-BY-24 INCH PRISMS REPRESENTING THREE DIFFERENT AGGREGATES, THREE CEMENT CONTENTS, THREE SLUMPS, SEVERAL VARIATIONS OF CURING, AND TESTING AT AGES OF 7, 28, AND 90 DAYS AND AT 1 YEAR. UNDER CONTROLLED LABORATORY CONDITIONS, THERE APPEARED TO BE A PRONOUNCED DEGREE OF CORRELATION BETWEEN HAMMER READING AND COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH. /AUTHOR/
