The article presents the results of the investigation of universal calibration dependences used in testing of the concrete strength by shear, rebound and ultrasound test methods. Many of the instruments currently used do not provide the required measurement accuracy, especially when using universal calibration dependences. The introduction of new more sophisticated instruments for nondestructive testing of concrete strength requires an assessment of their accuracy, taking into account the composition of concrete and other parameters. The shear test method, called “direct”, does not provide the required accuracy of measurements, and the use of this method for the calibration of sclerometers and ultrasonic devices is unacceptable.
The aim of the research is to clarify the dependences, taking into account the data on concrete composition, parameters of materials used, and the age of concrete. The studies will allow you to set the values of the coefficients to be used in the generalized calibration curve, with considering the concrete information obtained at a particular construction site (where concrete strength is tested).
Key words: Nondestructive strength testing / shear test method / rebound method / ultrasound method / universal calibration dependence / calibration based on direct measurements / direct and indirect measurements
