ULTRASONICS FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF THE OPTIMUM DURATION OF STEAM TREATMENT FOR CONCRETE

THE WORK REPORTED SHOWS THAT THE OPTIMUM DURATION OF STEAM CURING COULD BE DERIVED SATISFACTORILY FROM THE ULTRASONIC LONGITUDINAL-WAVE VELOCITY OR FROM THE CHANGES OCCURRING IN SUCH ULTRASONIC-WAVE PROPAGATION DURING STEAM TREATMENT. ONLY RELATIVE VALUES OF COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH ARE OBTAINABLE FROM THE NON-DESTRUCTIVE ULTRASONIC MEASUREMENTS, AND IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO DETERMINE THE CAUSES FOR THE CHANGES IN WAVE VELOCITY DURING HEAT TREATMENT. THESE CHANGES DO SHOW THAT THE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH OF CONCRETE CAN BE CORRELATED DIRECTLY WITH ITS COMPRESSION MODULUS. /AUTHOR/
