There are many instances where fresh concrete is used on site and it can be batched on site, delivered in a mixer truck or, for a smaller volume, in a skip.The control of concrete quality is imperative in order to avoid structural failure. The two primary tests are the workability using the slump test and the cube compressive strength of the delivered mix. In both cases a strict sampling technique is used to ensure the integrity of the testing. This is carried out in accordance with BS EN 12350-1. Concrete design is very precise, particularly for structures and normally a sampling and testing regime would be specified. Simtec is UKAS accredited for sampling, slump testing and making of cubes for compression testing.
