Strength Evaluation of the Plant Facility for Fluid Machinery Using Schmidt Hammer in Cold Regions Hong, Seung-Seo; Kim, YoungSeok;
The Schmidt hammer test is one of the best nondestructive tests to measure the strength without breaking structures, which has been used to measure the strength of concrete structures in a simple way at construction sites. However, the future research is needed to apply Schmidt hammer in cold regions. This study is intended to investigate the correlation between unconfined compression test result of the oil storage facilities foundation taken at the King Sejong Antarctic Station and Schmidt hammer test result at the sample-taking site. Also, the equation for uniaxial compression strength using Schmidt hammer rebound value is proposed.
