Abstract: The spectrum of control and laboratory strength tests in the production and research of cements is possible to reduce by using of an ultrasonic pulse method. Condition is to have calibration relationships between the parameter of non-destructive testing and strength of cement. In the article there are presented testing results of blended cements with various types waste addition using the ultrasonic pulse method. Described methodology respects the specifics of used method and tested material. There are also shown calibration relations for cements compressive and tensile strength computation from the ultrasonic pulse velocity and from the dynamic modulus of elasticity. Calibration relations correlation coefficient is higher than 0,9. The proposed testing methodology and calibration relations are practically applicable.
