Project description

The objective of this study is to develop appropriate test protocols for implementation of the surface resistivity test method as a quality assurance tool for new construction and for potential evaluation of existing structures in Missouri. Resistivity testing is currently the single simplest and lowest cost technique available to improve concrete lifecycle. Missourians will benefit through better quality, lower permeability concrete increasing concrete lifecycle, reducing durability distresses, and required reconstruction.
