Concrete Testing

Concrete Testing

Whether evaluating new mix designs, testing for compliance, assessing the condition of in-situ concrete or investigating reasons for failure, STS offer a full range of on-site and off-site tests.

When using fresh concrete, understanding the mechanical and physical properties helps to determine its workability, stability, and hardened state strength, along with testing for durability and long-term properties.

Alongside testing concrete, CTS also carry testing of the individual components of cement, aggregates, and water. Understanding the components and the quality of concrete delivered to site and through structural engineering ensures that concrete that is often used to support heavy loads is tested to make sure its strength and durability are sufficient.

With the main criteria for checking strength compliance of concrete being the testing of concrete cubes, beams, or cylinders, it is imperative that the production of test samples is carried out correctly in accordance with International Standards, by trained personnel. By utilizing STS’s skilled technicians, you can be assured that the concrete used is fully compliant with industry standards and that the results obtained are delivered in accordance with accredited quality standards.
