if you intend to install resilient flooring - vinyl, tiles, etc., testing the concrete slab for moisture is a requirement of the australian standards (as 1884-2012). it is also best practice as it will help prevent issues and ensure longevity of the floor covering.
as 2550.15 specifies requirements for the safe use of concrete placing equipment, including the planning, siting, erection and dismantling, maintenance, inspection, assessment, testing and associated specific requirements of concrete placing equipment.
concrete & aggregate used in your construction projects must meet strict australia regulations and quality standards. as these standards are often compulsory, concrete and aggregate testing by an independent third-party is necessary to help assure compliance is being met.
important australian standards in respect of concrete include as 3600 (concrete structures) and as 3700 (masonry structures). methods for testing concrete are outlined in as 1012. “quality control for any structure is critical to the performance of that structure – whether it’s a bridge, a high-rise building or a domestic house,” franceschini said.
these standards specify all aspects involved in the process of carrying out tests, from the equipment to the method of testing. a list of the national concrete standards relevant to cube testing are: fresh concrete: bs en 12350-1:2009 – sampling; bs en 12350-2:2009 – testing fresh concrete, slump test; bs en 206-1:2000 – concrete.
aci standards are written in mandatory language. there are typically two types of aci standards – design codes and construction specifications. design codes. design codes are directed to the design professional, not the construction team. aci design codes include, code requirements, code cases, acceptance criteria, and design specifications.
this australian standard was prepared by the technical committee bd/42, methods of testing concrete. it was approved on behalf of the council of standards australia on 4 march 1999 and published on 5 july 1999. the following interests are represented on committee bd/42: the association of consulting engineers of australia
australian standards. consistency of concrete - slump test. compressive strength of concrete. consistency of concrete - compacting factor test. consistency of concrete - vebe test. air content of freshly mixed concrete. mass per unit volume of concrete. flexural strength of concrete specimens. core compressive strength.
risks in the safe handling of concrete elements in construction work. the national code of practice for precast, tilt-up and concrete elements in building construction was declared by the ascc, in accordance with section 4 of the australian workplace safety standards act 2005 on 27 february 2008.
whether the subfloor ventilation complies with the australian standard requirements (as set out in as 1684 and 3660) if the subfloor is concrete, the date it was completed, the thickness of the slab, whether curing agents were used, and any other details relevant to the floor covering installation.
we trial, test and grade concrete and quarry material at 16 concrete and 23 aggregate laboratories across australia. expert technicians test a range of properties including compressive strength, concrete workability and material grading to ensure products perform as promised and meet relevant australian standards.
sections 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 of aci 318-19, aci 301-20 “specifications for concrete construction”, and aci 311.6-18 “specification for testing ready mixed concrete” require concrete strength tests for acceptance to be the average of at least two 6 x 12 in. (150 x 300 mm) cylinders or at least three 4 x 8 in. (100 x 200 mm) cylinders.

this non-destructive testing method used in accordance with australian standards records an estimation of the concrete’s (megapascals) mpa. used in conjunction with gpr (to determine areas free of reinforcing to allow no false readings) the hammer records and analyses the impact and post impact data to determine the estimate strength of concrete.
lmats can perform compressive strength on concrete cores or refractory samples in accordance with as/nzs 2350.11 and as 1774.1 respectively. the compressive test on concrete is performed on 40x40x160mm prismatic specimens whereas the refractory material involves 75x75x75mm cube for hot face refractory and 150x150x75mm for insulation refractory.
rca australia’s nata accredited laboratories offer an extensive selection of laboratory and field testing services to a range of standards including australian standards and roads and maritime services (rms) for the following material types: soil; aggregate; concrete
the concrete should be in a wheelbarrow or other suitable receptacle that will permit insertion of the thermometer so that at least 3 inches of concrete surrounds the stem. as long as sufficient concrete surrounds the thermometer in your sample, it should remain inserted for a minimum of 2 minutes while all the other tests are being conducted.
