How to Perform an ASTM C469 Concrete Compression Test

ASTM C469 governs the determination of static Modulus of Elasticity and Poisson’s Ratio of concrete in compression.  The ensuing video demonstrates a C469 test on a hydraulically actuated manually controlled Baldwin universal testing machine equipped with an ADMET Gauge Buster 2 Digital Indicator and a computer running ADMET’s Gauge Safe Live Data Exchange program.  The digital indicator and computer are connected via a USB port.
