Concrete Cube Testing – Concrete Testing Solutions UK

Concrete cube testing is a simple, cost-effective test of the compressive strength of concrete, providing you peace of mind that your concrete is fit for purpose and in line with BS EN 12390. Concrete samples are taken from the concrete truck while being poured and are then cast and air cured under BS standard conditions. Samples are then water cured for specific periods of time at our ...

Cube dimensions and strength - Concrete

In the UK, BS 8500 states that the compressive strength of 150mm cubes and 100mm cubes are considered equivalent. This has been assumed for some time although there are references that would beg to differ. Neville, Properties of concrete 4 th edition, reports that a 150mm cube is 96% the strength of a 100mm cube. The Dutch standard NEN 5950 (now superceded by EN 206) had standard cube test ...

Concrete Cube Testing Explained Rapid Readymix

17/01/2020  The purpose of a concrete cube test is to ensure that the concrete meets its expected compressive strength. If the concrete doesn’t hit its design strength – or if it hasn’t been tested – the supplier can’t guarantee its quality. And if the supplier can’t guarantee quality, then there’s a big risk that the concrete might not be up for the job. It could crack, crumble or collapse ...

Concrete cube strengths - what use are statistics?

The discussion in this Paper concerns the specification of concrete crushing strength. General comments . 3. The statistical approach was introduced in CP 114 [1] for testing designed mixes and it was developed further in CP 1102 and BS 5328. While CP 114 works to a limit equivalent to 2¼% defectives, a limit of 5% defectives has been adopted as standard in CP 110, BS 5328 and other

Compressive Strength - UK Cast Stone Association

UKCSA’s performance test stipulates that: the average crushing strength of 3 cubes tested to BS EN 12390: Part 3 shall not be less than 35 MPa at 28 days old. No individual cube is to have a strength less than 28 MPa. The UKCSA strength requirement came as a result of a two year Partners in Technology research project into cast stone, undertaken by Dundee University and co-funded by the UK ...

Screed Testing Sandberg

In-situ crushing resistance testing is carried out to assess compaction using the BRE Screed Tester Apparatus. The test method consists of subjecting the surface of the screed to four consecutive blows from a 4kg (or 2kg) weight dropped vertically through a height of 1m onto a foot 500mm² in area and then measuring the depth of indentation. Slip Resistance. Slip resistance of the final floor ...

How to Calculate Rate of Loading for Concrete Cube

11/09/2019  Rate of Loading for 15 Cm cube = 308.925 Kn / 60 Sec = 5.148 Kn/Sec Another Example Cube size is 10 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm So total load on this surface area will be 1.373 x 10 x 10 = 137.3 Kn So rate of loading will be = 137.3 / 60 = 2.88 Kn/Sec Same way you can calculate rate of loading for each cube size you test at your laboratory.
