VS ASTM C-1202 Standard Test Method for Electrical Indication of Concretes Ability to Resist Chloride Ion Penetration. Kansas DOT

CONCLUSION
THERE APPEARS TO BE SOME CORRELATION BETWEEN 28 DAY PERMEABLE VOIDS TEST AND 56 DAY RAPID CHLORIDE PENETRATION TEST.

HOWEVER
FOUR SETS OF DATA ARE STILL UNAVAILABLE.
