    Abstract

    The current status of in-place strength evaluation of concrete is discussed. A literature survey regarding the controversy surrounding the assessment of concrete strength through field-cast laboratory-cured cylinder tests is presented. Inconsistencies associated with the drilling and testing of cores for determining in-place concrete strength are pointed out. On the basis of these arguments, the necessity of developing alternative nondestructive test procedures is emphasized. This is followed by a detailed discussion on the status of the pullout test method as a measure of compressive strength of in-place concrete, which appears to be a potentially feasible nondestructive test procedure. The present paper constitutes a state of the art report on the aforementioned topics and contains appropriate recommendations from the authors.
