    Abstract

    The test apparatus was developed in the 1980s at the Cement and Concrete Association to study the in-situ abrasion resistance of concrete and, following collaboration with Aston University, it formed the basis for establishing the performance criteria in BS 8204: Part 2: 1999. The original design of these machines has been adopted by the industry and a commercial tester has been produced, which has been incorporated in the revision of the BS 8204: Part 2: 1999. It was important to investigate the three existing versions of the machines to determine whether they produce compatible results. This paper provides detailed experimental data from this investigation, discusses whether the results from the commercial abrasion tester are fully compatible with those obtained from the original machines and questions the inclusion of the commercial tester in the BS 8204: Part 2: 1999.
