K. Toguyeni Fati Zoma Mohamed Yerbanga <p>The method used to evaluate the quality of concrete in structures includes, among other things, compressive strength testing of specimens cast on site. This method has shortcomings due to the non-uniformity in their formulation processes of the concrete studied in laboratories and that of the structure on site and the tardiness in obtaining test results. This is why the development of reliable methods of non-destructive assessment of the compressive strength of concrete in situ is essential for a better performance assessment of structures.There are a multitude of non-destructive methods, but in this article, the ultrasonic pulse velocity (UPV) and the rebound hammer (RH) are the methods used as they are easy to get manipulate, accessible and permit fast access to results. Analyses using single and multiple linear regression methods have been carried out with the results from compression tests and measurements of pulse velocity and rebound indices carried out between February and April 2018 on over 90 specimen samples in total. This resulted in correlation equations for the in-situ estimation of the compressive strength of the concrete studied.</p> 2020-09-23T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
