3 Properties of Concrete 31 Properties of Concrete , Its compressive strength depends upon many factors, including the quality and proportions of the ingredients and the curing environment , (Most building elements are constructed with a maximum aggregate size of 3/4 to 1 in, larger sizes being prohibited by the closeness of the ....

Compressive strength is the maximum compressive stress that, under a gradually applied load, a given solid material can sustain without fracture Compressive strength is calculated by dividing the maximum load by the original cross-sectional area of a specimen in a compression test...

Compressive strength of concrete cube test provides an idea about all the characteristics of concreteBy this single test one judge that whether Concreting has been done properly or not Concrete compressive strength for general construction varies from 15 MPa (2200 psi) to 30 MPa (4400 psi) and higher in commercial and ,...

In very high-strength concrete mixtures (greater than 70 MPa) the crushing strength of the aggregate can be a limiting factor to the ultimate compressive strength In lean concretes (with a high water-cement ratio) the crushing strength ,...

Compressive Strength of concrete = Maximum compressive load / Cross Sectional Area Cross sectional Area = 150mm X 150mm = 22500 mm2 or 225 cm 2 Assume the compression load is 450 KN....

Compressive strength of concrete cured and maintained at 50 degrees Fahrenheit is expected to gain strength half as quickly as concrete cured at 73 degrees Fahrenheit In hot weather, curing and protection are critical due to rapid moisture loss from fresh concrete...

The compressive strength of the specimen is calculated by dividing the maximum load achieved during the test by the cross-sectional area of the specimen The results of this test method are used as a basis for quality control of concrete...
