EVALUATION OF THE TROXLER MODEL 4430 WATER-CEMENT GAUGE

The ratio of water to cementitious materials in a concrete mix is a prime determinant of its strength and durability. In 1994, Troxler Electronics Laboratories introduced the Model 4430 Water-Cement Gauge, a nuclear gauge for sequentially measuring the water-cement ratio of fresh concrete. This report describes a Highway Innovative Technology Evaluation Center (HITEC) evaluation designed to determine the basic capabilities and limitations of the Model 4430 gauge for use in quality control /quality assurance procedures for concrete construction. The work was carried out in four phases: computer simulations, laboratory testing, precision evaluations, and field evaluations.
