Abstract : The report of ACI Committee 214 states that the primary function of tests of field concrete is to insure production of uniform concrete of desired strength and quality. Concrete, because of its heterogeneity, is subject to the influence of many variables. The effect of such variables as changes in quality, uniformity and proportions of materials, adequacy of mixing, and effect of moisture, and temperature of hardening and curing on strength can be measured by test specimens carefully made under uniform conditions.
