Abstract

This project details how laboratory exercises for making, curing, capping, and testing concrete compression cylinders, based on the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) procedures, were developed and incorporated into a senior level construction management course. Included is the course history, a description of the laboratory space and equipment and a discussion of how the laboratory exercises relate to student learning. Numerical and graphical results of testing concrete cylinders at four different water-to-cement ratios are presented and discussed. Also, future opportunities for similar hands-on student laboratory exercises are identified and discussed.
