The article reviews detailed aspects of concrete testing in New Zealand. The accepted measure of concrete quality is its 28-day strength and it is the accurate determination of this test that is of concern. While current construction techniques demand the highest performance of construction materials, it is recognised that some variation in quality must be expected. The effect of varying control conditions on expected variation of quality is shown. Details are given of concrete sampling and compression strength testing procedures to New Zealand standards employed in laboratories registered by TELARC (Testing Laboratory Registration Council).
