Relationship between Test Results of the ACSIRO and ASTM C1202 Methods
The ASTM C1202 method is observed that the total electric charge passed is not an ideal indicator for classification of concrete quality when different binders are considered. Considering the drawback of the ASTM 1202 method, a simple modification to the ASTM C1202 method is recommended. The modification involves an additional test using curing water as electrolyze solution. The difference in the total charge passed obtained between standard test and test performed in curing water is suggested as an indicator for concrete quality. The test results show that there exists a good correlation between the ACSIRO and the ASTM C1202 methods. The relationship can be formulated as a linear function.
