Concrete @ your Fingertips


Insitu tests - British Standards

Testing of concrete in situ has largely been superseded by various Parts of BS EN 12504, Testing concrete in structures.  However,  various parts of BS 1881, Testing concrete, remain current including:

Part 201, Guide to the use of non-destructive methods of test for hardened concrete
Part 204, Recommendations on the use of electromagnetic covermeters
Part 207, Recommendations for the assessment of concrete strength by near-to-surface tests
Part 208, Recommendations for the determination of the initial surface absorption of concrete
