Testing Fresh Concrete at Point of Delivery

Testing Fresh Concrete at Point of Delivery

ASCC concrete contractors prefer to test fresh concrete at the point of delivery and, when necessary, to perform comparative testing that determines the effect of placement method on slump and air content. As ACI 301 suggests, comparative tests allow point of-delivery acceptance limits to be set. Testing fresh concrete at the point of delivery ...

If the point of delivery is differ-ent than the point of placement, as might occur with pumped concrete, fresh concrete should be tested at the point of placement. An exception to this is when the contractor has developed an acceptable correlation between fresh-concrete properties at the mixer and at the point of place-ment. Then the testing ...

May 16, 2014  Therefore, concrete producers may need to deliver concrete that is out of specification (slump and air too high, for example) so that it will meet the specification after pumping. The concrete producer would generally prefer to test at the point of discharge. After the concrete leaves the truck, it is usually out of the producer’s control.
