This method of testing is a compressive strength test that involves applying an axial load to a concrete sample at a uniform rate until it fails. This involves removing a core sample from the area of concrete to be tested of a minimum size* and having the sample tested by an independent lab. We use our Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) to provide a sample free of reinforcing.
You will be provided with a comprehensive report including, Compressive Force (kN), Concrete Density (kg/m3), Compressive Strength (MPa).
*Requires minimum of 3 x Cores at 75mm diameter by 150mm deep for most accurate reading
