CONCRETE
Section C
88
The accurate and satisfactory test of fresh and hardened concrete are essential elements for any type of building realization.
The final quality of the concrete utilized in the structure depends
from many variables like: workability, consistency, setting, time,
volumic mass, air content, compressive strength, temperature,
linear variations, corrosion etc.
Matest proposes a complete range of testing and research
equipment on concrete to satisfy practically all the above quality
variables, in compliance with the EN, ASTM and the most known
International Standards.

section C
Main Menu:
The display shows date and time, currently applied load and single
load, latest effected test , controls for the pace rate, controls for
rapid commands, status controls showing the configuration in use,
analogical channel and eventually activated alarm (picture 1).
92
Test execution:
Local Mode : For the setting of a new test, use the controls for
rapid commands. The test is effected manually after having entered
the necessary parameters (specimen size : mm,in,cm), pace rate
(Mpa/s,N/mm2/s,psi/s,lb/in2/s,kg/cm2/s,kN/s,lb/s,kg/s,t/s), test parameters (weight, specific weight, temperature, ageing). (Picture2,3).
Once the test is over, the operator can start a new one, can display
the graphic load/time (max. applied load and max. single load :
Mpa,N/mm2,psi,lb/in2,kg/cm2) or return to the Main Menu.
6 • Screen showing a calibration with confirmation of the reading lining points and file saving.
Remote Mode : thanks to the program UTM2 (Accessory C10910), the operator can activate from a remote PC, all the functions
and controls available on the local unit also including the switching
on and off of the machine, test acquisition, automatic data storing
and other interesting functions.
Calibration / Configuration:
The transducer calibration can be carried out either in LOCAL or
REMOTE mode :
- setting of the transducer data : min. values, measuring unit:
kN, kg, lb, t,
- steps lining : 1/10 to 10/10 of the min. value, check date.
- Print out for machine setting
- Print out for calibration.
7 • Configuration of the test profile on channel 1 with calibration 1
In the LOCAL calibration, the operator will check the ram by a
direct control of the pump. The step saving operation is manual.
In the REMOTE calibration, the testing machine is controlled by the
software UTM2 (accessory C109-10) (picture 5,6,9).
Transducer checking in LOCAL or REMOTE operating mode.
Setting of the measuring unit to be displayed (this unit may be

Determination of the secant compression
ELASTIC MODULUS on concrete
System: Automatic with pace rate control
also when releasing the load
STANDARDS: UNI 6556 – ASTM C469 – ISO 6784 – DIN 1048
It can be used with a MATEST testing machine to be selected
among the Servotronic models (ref. C104).
The appliance includes:
• Hydraulic system
It is an hydraulic installation and has a high performance valve
directly controlled by the digital unit that grants the automatic
control of the pace rate increasing the load, keeps a certain load
and than controls the pace rate decreasing the load.
The setting of the pace rate is made by a very sensitive valve
controlled by a step by step motor and it allows a micrometric
action on the pace rate granting excellent results.
A laser position detector allows a rapid positioning of the piston.
This grants a touching sensitivity of test starting of about 0,1 per
thousand of the maximum capacity.
• Electronic measuring system
The high performance control and data processing unit controlled by a 32 bit microprocessor, can manage up to 4 high resolution channels for the control of load cells or transducers with
strain gages bridge and other 4 channels for the management of
the signals coming from single use extensometers (strain gauges).
The unit contains two Analogical/Digital last generation converters with 24 bits resolution. The system processes the signals
coming from the load cells and from the extensometers giving all
material testing solutions
Screen

marker indicating any change.
the results required for a further
processing on the Personal Computer following the most updated
International Standards for this
application.
The single use extensometers
available in different dimensions must be interfaced using a
specific module that makes the automatic calibration of the zero
and of the measuring range after a special thermal compensation.
This grants a five times better precision than the one required by
the Standards.
• Data acquisition and processing software UTM2 (for feature
and general applications of the UTM2 see page 14) with License
for Elastic Modulus on Concrete.
The software has been developed on the working line of the
already known software UTM-2 (windows menu). It contains the
profiles of the main Standards used, but the user can modify as

section C
The user can introduce a list of data concerning the specimen that will be tested and the kind of test that he wants to make: shape of the
specimen (cylinder-cube-block), dimensions, age of the specimen, average expected breaking value, etc… The appliance allows verifying the
proper reading of the extensometers and, if everything is within the expected tolerances, it manages the average deformation value read by
the transducers and processed by the digital unit, than it transmits by means of the serial communication port (RS232) to a Personal Computer, that can be already by the end user or supplied separately all the data of the test. These data will be processed by the software and
transformed in a graph load/deformation and load/time, following the International Standards.
Test with two cycles as confirmation.
Personalisation of the test certificate.

The software gives the possibility to print on a standard printer a test certificate reporting all the data concerning the test and the specimen and
the graph of the test.

GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The load frame is extremely strong and oversized to grant high rigidity and stability.
The upper head holds the precision lapped ball-seating and the compression platen.
Compression platens are surface hardened HRC 60 and ground.
Design emphasis has been placed on simplicity both of construction and operation so that our machines are rugged, easy to use and
maintain, and designed for heavy continue use.
They are designed to conform to International Specifications as: EN, ASTM, AASHTO, BS, NF, DIN, UNI, UNE.
They are available in 1200 kN, 1500 kN, 2000 kN, 3000 kN, 5000 kN capacity, both hand-operated and motorized, at one or two gauges,
with electronic digital display measuring system, and with automatic servocontrolled console with microprocessor.
The different versions give the possibility to test cubes, cylinders, blocks. All the machines can be equipped of safety guards.
Hydraulic system
Piston has large diameter: this allows the hydraulic circuit to work
at low pressure with longer life of working components and higher
precision in the results.
Piston is ground and lapped, and a packing high quality set of three
elements is utilized.
Motorized models foresee a dial device to visualize, pre-select and
control the flow allowing an uniform load rate as requested by
Standards.
A fast approach ram action device is foreseen to avoid dead times
during stroke of the ram.
The manual pump is two stage for fast approach ram action and
automatic change for test pressure.
Power pump is multipiston, assuring continuity of delivery.
A movement indicator visualizes instant by instant the piston’s
excursion during the compression test.
A hopper is foreseen avoiding the powder of the broken specimen
to enter into the cylinder of the press damaging the packing set.

E’ prevista inoltre una tramoggia che evita alle scorie e alla
polvere del provino rotto
di infilarsi nel cilindro

• Compression platens are hardened 60 HRC and rectified.
• Device to check piston’s excursion during test.
section C
• Hydraulic device to stop automatically the piston’s stroke at its max excursion.
• Piston and cylinder are coupled with high quality packing set.
• Dial speed selector to visualize, pre-select and control the oil flow.
• Power pump is multipiston assuring continuity of delivery.
• Fast approach ram device to avoid dead times.
• The ball seating, in oil bath with null end float, is studied and manufactured to grant, during the starting phase of the test, an accurate
self-alignment without frictions of the upper compression platen to the specimen. By applying the load, the ball seating assembly locks
and keeps the position until the specimen’s failure.
• The four columns frame is prestressed on 8 ring nuts and the clamping is obtained and checked by a dynamometric spanner, allowing
to get a very high stiffness and stability on all load range and to keep these features in the time.
LOAD MEASURING SYSTEMS:
b) “DIGITRONIC”, two channels microprocessor digital display
unit (see pag. 97)
a) Dial Gauges dia. 250 mm have mirror face avoiding parallax errors.
Gauges are fitted with max. load pointer, zero adjustment,
damping system.
Low pressure gauge is protected from overloads.
c) “CYBERTRONIC”, multichannel computerized digital display
