Soil Testing Procedures

  • ASTM C39 / AASHTO T22: Compressive Strength of Cylindrical Concrete Specimens
  • Compressive Strength of Cylindrical Concrete Specimens Test Purpose:
  • To determine the compressive strength of cylindrical concrete specimens.
  • Sample Preparation:
  • Standard cylinder break schedules are as follows:
    1. 7-Day Break
    2. 28-Day Break
    3. Spare
  • SPlease contact the EGS laboratory for shipping options. EGS will come pick upcylinders from the job site for the transport fee given in the laboratory rate sheet. As of January 1, 2009, EGS will only accept 4"x8" concrete cylinders.
  • Special Considerations:
  • Please specify which breaking procedure to use. EGS normally breaks cylinders by the use of unbonded caps (ASTM C1231), however, Sulfer Capping (ASTM C617) is available.
  • Compressive Strength of Cylindrical Concrete SpecimensEstimated Testing Length:
  • 28 days, or as test requires.
  • Prerequisite Tests:
  • None
  • Other Comments:
  • If the cylinder ends do not meet the planeness specifications, the ends must be cut to meet ASTM and AASHTO requirements.
