Repeatability and Reproductibility of Results of Fresh Concrete Testing


Article Preview

The aim of this paper is to summarize the results of 11 experiments which focused on assessing the precision of results of fresh concrete testing. The observed characteristics are slump test, flow table test, density and air content. More than twenty participants (testing laboratories) took part in these experiments. The test results were evaluated with statistical methods used for evaluations of interlaboratory comparisons. The article deals especially with the values of repeatability and reproducibility, which provide further understanding of the interval within which it is possible to expect with the given probability the test results measured in one or more laboratories.
