ASTM C39

Standard Test Method for Compressive Strength of Cylindrical Concrete Specimens

The compressive strength is determined on a right cylinder.  The ratio of height to diameter must be between 1.8 and 2.2.

ASTM C78

Standard Test Method for Flexural Strength of Concrete (Using Simple Beam with Third-Point Loading)

Flexural strength is determined in four-point bending on bars of rectangular cross-section.

ASTM C109

Standard Test Method for Compressive Strength of Hydraulic Cement Mortars

The compressive strength is determined on 2" cubes.

ASTM C215

Standard Test Method for Fundamental Transverse, Longitudinal, and Torsional Resonant Frequencies of Concrete Specimens

A non-destructive sonic method is used to determine the  modulus of elasticity and modulus of rigidity for calculation of Poisson's ratio.  Bars of rectangular cross-section are used for the measurements.

ASTM C293

Standard Test Method for Flexural Strength of Concrete (Using Simple Beam With Center-Point Loading)

Flexural strength is determined in three-point bending on bars of rectangular cross-section.

ASTM C403

Standard Test Method for Time of Setting of Concrete Mixtures by Penetration ResistanceThe resistance of the concrete mixture to penetration by standard needles is measured.  The initial and final setting times are determined from a plot of penetration resistance versus time.  A sample of at least 25 lbs. should be submitted.

ASTM C496

Standard Test Method for Splitting Tensile Strength of Cylindrical Concrete Specimens

A diametral compressive load is applied along the length of a cylindrical specimen (2" diameter x 4" high) until tensile failure occurs.

ASTM C580

Flexural Strength and Modulus of Elasticity of Chemical Resistant Mortars, Grouts, Monolithic Surfacings, and Polymer Concretes

Flexural strength is determined in three-point bending on bars of rectangular cross-section.  Testing of six specimens per type/brand is recommended by ASTM.

ASTM C597

Standard Test Method for Pulse Velocity Through Concrete

The pulse velocity is calculated through longitudinal wave measurements in 3 directions.  The veloctiy of sound waves is measured using a James V-meter.
