Construction Materials lab


Cement tests: setting time, surface area (fineness of cement), volume change, compression and tension strength. Aggregate test: Los Angeles abrasions test, impact resisting test, density, grading, and water absorption. Fresh concrete tests: slump test, compaction factor, void ratio, cubic and cylindrical specimens. Hardened concrete tests: flexure, compression and tensile strength, Schmidt hammer test, porosity, ultrasonic test.
