Mechanical Testing Solutions for Concrete

Concrete has been in use for construction for over 2,000 years, but modern technology has had a major impact on even a simple material like concrete. In addition to steel reinforcing bar, advanced fibers are used to strengthen concrete in structural applications as well as high temperature/high pressure applications in oil and gas drilling. Changes in the material parameters need to be carefully measured during product development as well as monitoring samples taken during construction. The test methods are clearly specified according to the ASTM specs listed below. ADMET has been involved with concrete testing for many years, from retrofitting simple compression test frames with servo control to providing advanced high temperature systems to measure the Modulus of Elasticity and Poisson’s Ratio at operating temperatures. Analysis routines are built in to the software for ease of use and fast time-to-results.

Common testing standards for concrete include:
