Ultrasonic pulse velocity test consists of measuring travel time, T of ultrasonic pulse of 50 to 54 kHz, produced by an electro-acoustical transducer, held in contact with one surface of the concrete member under test and receiving the same by a similar transducer in contact with the surface at the other end.

get priceJul 17, 2017· Concrete has inherent compressive strength -- resistance to forces pushing on it. Concrete mixes are designed to a specified compressive strength, expressed as pounds per square inch (psi). Concrete for works, such as driveways or floors, is typically in the range of 1,800 psi to 4,000 psi for compressive strength.

get priceMost designers calculate the required thickness of a floor based on the flexural strength of the concrete. Flexural strength is estimated by the modulus of rupture, which is assumed to vary with the square root of the compressive strength. In the equation that relates design slab thickness and modulus of rupture, the thickness term is squared.
