What is a Concrete Capping Pad ?
Capping is the preparation of the ends of cylindrical concrete specimens to ensure that a test cylinder or core has smooth, parallel, uniform bearing surfaces that are perpendicular to the applied axial load during compressive strength testing.
Which of the following material is used for capping concrete core?
Sulphur and rubber capping are widely accepted methods. However, care must be taken for sulphur capping method especially for high strength concrete, where capping thickness of 1-2 mm and adequate strength of capping compounds are required.
What is the method of capping?
Capping involves placing a cover over contaminated material such as landfill waste or contaminated soil. Such covers are called â€œcaps.â€ Caps do not destroy or remove contaminants. Instead, they isolate them and keep them in place to avoid the spread of contamination.
