Concrete structures are assemblies of load carrying members which transfer the load of the superstructure to the foundation. However the main quality which is sought after in the structure is its characteristic strength. Since determining compressive strength through compressive strength testing machine involves a complex procedure and a tedious task, non-destructive testing methods have gained prominence over a period of time. However it has been found that the results of non-destructive testing methods are subjected to various environmental conditions and different physical and chemical properties of concrete. In the present report, Rebound Hammer Test has been used as the non-destructive test and the purpose behind using Rebound Hammer Test is to calculate compressive strength of the cubes without damaging and altering the existing properties of concrete structure. Thereafter, the cubes are tested against compressive strength testing machine and a correlation has been established between the two testing methods.
