One of the decisions that must be made before completing a traverse is the appropriate precision for the measurements.
An open traverse is a route where the angles and distances are carefully measured, but the finished route does not form a closed polygon.
The cumulative frequency distribution of the air void volumes will be referred to as the air void gradation curve (i.e., similar to the gradation curve of soils, see [4]) If the chord length measurements are to be of value in accurately characterizing the air void gradation curve, it is necessary to know the number of traverse lines needed to provide an accurate summary of the chord length distribution.
Concrete samples based on specified parameters including the volume fraction of air, the number of traverse lines, and the gradation curve of the air voids were generated.
