Sclerometric test

Work civile

The sclerometric test allow us to estimate the compressive strength Rc of the concrete, on-site. The survey consists in projecting, with a determined energy of percussion, an assigned mass against the surface of the concrete and in measuring the energy returned in relation to that supplied, by determining the rebound index.

From the correlation between the rebound index, whose value is a function of the elastic modulus and the strength of the material, through specific experimental curves it is possible to deduce an estimate of the cubic strength in a rapid and non-destructive way.
