cylinder tests in order to determine the in- place strength of concrete. In - place concrete strength is not the same as the cylinder concrete strength because the in - place concrete is placed, compacted, and cured in a different manner than the cylinder specimen concrete.

Strength development in concrete

The capacity of concrete is reported in psi – pounds per sq. inch in US units and in MPa – mega pascals in SI units.This is usually called as the characteristic compressive strength of concrete fc/ fck. For normal field applications, the concrete strength can vary from 10Mpa to 60 Mpa.

Design mixes usually have a recommended slump range to yield optimal performance, and adding too much water, while increasing the slump and making the concrete easier to pour, can greatly reduce the strength of the finished concrete.

Ages For Strength Testing

Age 28 days gives a good clue to the strength that will be achieved by the end of the period of most rapid strength gain (see figure), so 28 days is a useful multiple of 7 days at which to test. Consequently, concrete mixes are usually proportioned in terms of the strength they can develop at 28 days.

The concrete minimum compressive strength will be specified by the client/designer in a specific format. An example of this is given below: C40/50. The 40 is the compressive requirement of 40 N/mm of a crushed 100m concrete core and the 50 is a compressive requirement of 50 N/mm for a crushed concrete cube. Therefore using the method of
