2020-6-4As per BIS IS 516 the compressive strength of a concrete mix is determined by curing concrete cubes 150mm for 28 days temperature maintained at 27- 2 0 C.This test determines the grade of concrete.. But under special requirements time constraints to determine grade of concrete it may not be feasible to wait as long as 28 days BIS has recommended accelerated curing test on

Read MoreThe compressive testing process. A concrete compressive strength test machine works by progressively applying force on a specimen. Because strength is defined as the maximum load carried divided by the average cross-section area the most logical way to determine the strength of
Read MoreConcrete is an ancient material of construction first used during the Roman Empire.Concrete today is a sophisticated material to which exotic foreign constituents can be added and with computer-controlled batching can produce a product capable of achieving 50000 psi compressive strength.. i.Concrete is the second most consumed substance in the world after water
Read MoreMortar is a mixture of cement and sand in a specified ratio on which the strength of the mortar depends. If the mortar is weak then also its compressive strength is very low but if the mortar is a strong one then its compressive strength is also very high.. The mixture of sand and cement in water is generally weak in tension and is strong in compression that is why when the concrete is

Read More2018-6-22False strength of concrete proves fatal as it may fail due to various factors in the long terms. Therefore to ensure the functional performance and safety of structure it is necessary to determine the true strength of concrete. In this project the effect of high rate of loading on compressive strength of concrete has been studied. As it has
Read MoreThe objectives of this study are to investigate the relationship between static and dynamic elastic moduli determined using shear-wave velocity measurements and to demonstrate the practical potential of the shear-wave velocity method for in situ dynamic modulus evaluation. Three hundred 150 by 300 mm concrete cylinders were prepared from three different mixtures with target compressive
