Concrete Paving Quality Control Procedures: Air Content (Hardened Concrete) Mobile App

Another method of determining the quality of an air-void system in concrete is microscopical analysis of hardened concrete. This method provides information on the total air content, as well as the spacing factor and other parameters. The Concrete Paving Quality Control Procedures: Air Content (Hardened Concrete) mobile app covers: Purpose, Principle, Test Procedure, Test Method, Output and Construction Issues.
