Standard Test Method for Measuring Thickness of Concrete Elements Using Drilled Concrete Cores


1.1 This test method covers the determination of the thickness of a concrete pavement, slab, or structural element using drilling cores.

1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. Within the text, the inch-pound units are shown in brackets. The values stated in each system are not exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other.

1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Significance and Use

4.1 This test method is used to determine the compliance of concrete construction with design specifications and is commonly used in determining the thickness of pavements and other slab construction. This test method requires that at least one end of the core be a finished or formed surface.
