2 Improvement of calibration accuracy It may, in some cases, be possible to produce correlations of combinations of measured values with desired properties, to a greater accuracy than is possible for either individual method. This has been most widely developed in relation to strength assessment using ultrasonic pulse velocities in conjunction with density (41) or rebound hammer readings (which are related to surface density). In the latter case, appropriate strength correlations must be produced for both methods enabling multiple regression equations to be developed with compressive strength as the dependent variable (42).

For practical purposes the influence Copyright 1996 Chapman & Hall (v) (vi) of time may be regarded as unimportant up to the age of three months, but for older concretes it may be possible to develop reduction factors which take account of the concrete’s history, Surface carbonation. Concrete exposed to the atmosphere will normally form a hard carbonated skin, whose thickness will depend upon the exposure conditions and age. It may exceed 20mm for old concrete although it is unlikely to be significant at ages of less than three months.
