Concrete Paving Quality Control Procedures: Air Content (Plastic Concrete, Pressure Method) Mobile App
Entrained air is essential to the long-term durability of concrete pavements that are subject to freezing and thawing.
How does it work?
Air content is a commonly specified parameter in paving specifications. It is usually measured at the point of placement using a pressure meter (normally a type B meter). Although this test does not provide air system parameters, it is quick, easy to run, and has worked very well for years as a quality control tool. The Concrete Paving Quality Control Procedures: Air Content (Plastic Concrete, Pressure Method) mobile app covers: Purpose, Principle, Test Procedure, Test Method, Output and Construction Issues.
