Thats the sixth time youve said that in the last hour, said Pip. Cant you think of something else to say?
No, I cant, said Bets. I keep on feeling so

Proper use of the Rebound Hammer
Updated to reflect the changes to ASTM C805
The Rebound Hammer has been around since the late 1940s and today is a commonly used
method for estimating the compressive strength of in-place
Rebound hammer test :
To calculate the compressive strength of any concreting
using rebound hammer.
The rebound hammer test is one of the non-destructive
tests used to check the compressive strength of concrete .

GUIDELINES FOR USING REBOUND HAMMER TO ESTIMATE
SEPTIC TANK CONCRETE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH
The rebound hammer can provide a fairly accurate estimate of concrete
compressive strength. Because it is a nondestructive testing device, it can be
(A) Deflection of a Cantilever
To determine the deflection of a cantilever to an increasing point load when the load is applied
at the center of the beam with three different materials.
Deflection is the degree to which a structura
