When the readings are taking there are many factors effects on it as: Mix characteristics: o Cement types. o Cement content. o Coarse aggregate type and shape. Member characteristics: o Mass. o Compaction. o Surface type. o Age (time). o Surface carbonation. o Moisture condition. Average reading ¿ of allreading numberof reading If the any reading isn't near the value of the average we ignored it. 1.2 Purpose :- The aim of this test is to find out compressive strength of concrete with the help of suitable relations between rebound index and compressive strength. In order to assess the quality of concrete in relation to standard requirements.

Instruments used in this experiment Instrument Attached Photo 1) Rebound Hammer devise. 3. Procedure: 1 The Rebound hummer firmly was fixed with angles α = - 90 for cubes and cylinder and α = 0 for beam. Figure (2) Test on Beam 2 The Rebound hummer pushed against the concrete surface with angles α = - 90 for cubes and cylinder and α = 0 for beam. (Note: the test can do at any angles between 0 and 90).

### 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.
