Residual Compressive Strength of High Strength Concrete

Residual Compressive Strength of High Strength Concrete

High-strength concrete (HSC) is gaining popularity over normal-strength concrete (NSC) in the design of various structural components because of many advantages of such concrete [ 1 ]. As per ACI 363R-10 [ 2 ], HSC is defined as concrete having compressive strength greater than 41.4 MPa (6000 psi).

Compressive Strength Test of Concrete Civil Engineering

Mar 06, 2017 Compressive strength as a concrete property depends on several factors related to quality of used materials, mix design and quality control during concrete production. Depending on the applied code, the test sample may be cylinder [15 cm x 30 cm is common] or cube [15 cm x 15cm x 15 cm is the most common].

May 12, 2021 The laboratory will test the concrete cylinders at 7, 14, 28, and occasionally 56 days after field installation to determine compressive strength at those curing intervals. This is accomplished using a device that applies force to the ends of the concrete cylinder until it breaks under the load.
