Oct 17 2017 For 7 days concrete should achieve 65 of its strength ie 16 to 17 Nmm2 at 7 days For 28 days concrete should achieve 99 of its strength ie 25 Nmm2 at 28 days source Increase in strength of concrete with age Hope it helps Also lea
Concrete compressive strength does not depend on the full hydration of its cement particles but essentially on their closeness 1011 In a concrete having a watercement ratio lower than 042 hydration stops when there is no more water to hydrate the cement particles Below this critical value of 042 very fine cement particles can be fully hydrated but only the surface of the coarsest ones

Compressive strength of concrete is the Strength of hardened concrete measured by the compression test The compression strength of concrete is a measure of the concretes ability to resist loads which tend to compress it It is measured by crushing cylindrical concrete specimens in compression testing machine
For normal concrete strength the cube size of 150mmx150mmx150mm is already sufficient for the crushing strength of the machine Advertisements This question is taken from book named A Self Learning Manual Mastering Different Fields of Civil Engineering Works VC

Total four concrete mix batches were tested in which one mix was of normal aggregate concrete at 0 replaced by RCA and other are of Recycled aggregate concrete at 20 40 and 60 replaced by RCA The result of the test are shown in the table compressive strength of the specimens was calculated by following formula
According to Wikipedia Compressive Strength of concrete is defined as the Characteristic strength of 150mm size concrete cubes tested at 28 days Why do we test at 7 14 28 days Concrete is a macro content with Sand Cement Coarse aggregate as its microingredient Mix Ratio and gains its 100 strength over time at the hardened state
The specification for the floor of a maintenance building called for a 6inch slab thickness and concrete with a design compressive strength of 3000 psi The actual average cylinder strength for the floor concrete was 3630 psi Four months after the floor was placed 10 cores were drilled measured and tested in compression
Typical properties of normal strength Portland cement concrete Density 2240 2400 kgm 3 140 150 lbft 3 Compressive strength 20 40 MPa 3000 6000 psi
Concrete strength varies with time and the specified concrete strength is usually that strength that occurs 28 days after the placing of concrete A typical strengthtime curve for normal stone concrete is shown in Figure 2 Generally concrete attains approximately 70 of its 28day strength in 7 days and approximately 85 to 90 in 14 days
The increasing interest in the strain behaviour of concrete is not restricted to everyday mean compressive strengths but now extends to very high values In this paper it is shown that the various proposals for assessing the value 0 of the strain at the peak of the compressive strength of concrete appear sufficiently precise at maximum for a limited range of strengths This had led us to
Aug 29 2013 For normal concrete strength application say below 50MPa the stress produced by a 150mmx150mmx150mm cube is sufficient for the machine to crush the concrete sample
May 11 2014 What is Standard Deviation When repeated measurements give different results we want to know how widely spread the readings are The spread of values tells us something about the uncertainty of a measurement By knowing how large this spread is we can begin to judge the quality of the measurement or set of measurements The
The compressive strength of concrete is the most common performance measure used by the engineer in designing buildings and other structures The compressive strength is measured by breaking cylindrical concrete specimens in a compressiontesting machine
Highstrength concrete is specified where reduced weight is important or where architectural considerations call for small support elements By carrying loads more efficiently than normalstrength concrete highstrength concrete also reduces the total amount of material placed and lowers the overall cost of the structure
According to A M Neville Honorary member of the American Concrete Institute and author of Properties of Concrete the strength and elasticity of aggregate depend on its composition density texture and structure For a highquality pavement the aggregate should possess high resistance to crushing and to withstand the stresses due
