The use of a cover meter is recommended to locate reinforcement, for the presence of steel in the core would give uncertain results. The number of required drills depends upon reasons for testing and volume of concrete involved. Moreover, the number of drilled samples should be suitable enough to provide results of acceptable accuracy. Volume = (WT in Air) – (WT in Water) Density of core = Weight air ( Weight air weight water ) Corr. Compression strength of core = compressive strength x The Coefficient of L D factor Compression Strength of cube = 1.25 *corr. strength of cylinder. 1.2 Purpose The aim of this experiment is to examine and carry out compression test for a core cuts from hardened concrete beam and to perform a visual inspection of the interior regions of the member. In this experiment, other physical properties like density and water absorption can be measured.

2. Procedure 1 The Beam of hardened Reinforced concrete is rigidly braced onto the core drill machine, to prevent accidental slipping, which gives inaccurate results. 2 Water supply and constant pressure are vital conditions in the core-drilling process.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
