QUALITY AUDIT PLAN As noted in the Contact Administration Guide Procedure CA15 – Quality Audits, the Project Manager is responsible for producing a Quality Audit Plan for File Size: KB. Quality tests on concrete are performed as a part of quality control of concrete structures. Different quality tests on concrete such as compressive strength tests, slump tests, permeability tests used to assure the quality of the concrete that is supplied for a given specification. These quality tests on concrete give an idea about the. Concrete Mix Design, Quality Control and Specification explores producing, designing, controlling, or specifying concrete, and addresses issues related with sustainability and the impact of new concrete materials such as ready mixed geopolymers, magnesium oxide, and calcium carbonate. The text is an ideal resource for concrete technologists. Undoubtedly, this book will serve as a ready reference for quality control and contract personnel, and inspire graduate students to develop their interest in concrete technology even further Author: Sivakumar Kandasami.
