REVISED OPERATIONS GUIDE FOR A CHEMICAL TECHNIQUE TO DETERMINE WATER AND CEMENT CONTENT OF FRESH CONCRETE

This guide describes the system's capabilities (including its capability to estimate potential concrete strength), limitations, and accuracy, and details the required equipment, reagents, and procedures. A guide for analyzing test results and a description of a mobile miniaturized field unit are presented. The CERL/K-V System is described in which the water content is determined by chloride ion titiation. Extensive tests have proven the system to be rapid (15 mins) and accurate enough for fresh concrete. For the system to be field-worthy it must be packaged in a small portable, self-contained unit that can be rapidly set up for use.
