ANALYSIS OF STATISTICAL INDICES OF CONCRETE QUALITY

ANALISIS DE ESTIMADORES ESTADISTICOS DE LA CALIDAD DEL HORMIGON

STRUCTURAL PROJECTS REST INCREASINGLY ON PROBABILISTIC METHODS BECAUSE OF THE RANDOM CHARACTERISTIC OF MATERIALS STRENGTH AND ACTING LOADS. GUIDELINES EH-73 GOVERNING THE USE OF CONCRETE IN SPAIN REQUIRE CONCRETE QUALITY CONTROL, THE CONTROL OF CONCRETE INGREDIENTS, OF STEEL AND OF THE EXECUTION OF THE STRUCTURE. AN ATTEMPT IS MADE TO CLARIFY THE STATISTICAL INDICES GIVEN IN THE GUIDELINES, BY ANALYZING THE SPECIFICATIONS OF CONCRETE, THE VARIOUS TYPES OF CONTROL, CRITERIA OF ACCEPTANCE OF THE SAMPLES, AND THE CONSEQUENCES OF THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN PROJECT AND FINAL STRUCTURE ON THE SAFETY OF THE LATTER.
