EFFECTS OF INTENSITY OF LOAD IN RESULTS OF SCLEROMETRY APPLIED TO SPECIMENS OF CONCRETE

Favoritar este trabalho
Nondestructive testing techniques are essential for determination of certain concrete properties, with applications in the field and allowing the integrity of structural elements. In the development of this research, two groups of concrete of compressive strength of 21.3 MPa and 41.5 MPa were studied. The specimens (150mm x 300mm) were submitted to 3 loading levels. We conclude that the sclerometric indexes are less affected by intensity of lloading, than by the compressive strength of concrete.
