What Can I Do For You?
the compressive strength test is done on cement, when it is used as cement mortar and concrete. as a construction material, concrete is employed to resist the compressive stresses. while, at locations where tensile-strength or shear-strength is of primary importance, the compressive strength is used to estimate the required property of cement mortar cubes.
[50-mm] test cubes are compacted by tamping in two layers. the cubes are cured one day in the molds and stripped and immersed in lime water until tested. 4. signiﬁcance and use 4.1 this test method provides a means of determining the compressive strength of hydraulic cement and other mortars and results may be used to determine compliance

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/ mm² of a crushed 100m concrete core and the 50 is a compressive requirement of 50 n/mm² for a crushed concrete cube. therefore using the
iii. test program compressive testing machine: compression testing machine of capacity 2000 kn is used for compression testing of cube and cylinder as casted of size 150x150x150 mm and 150x300 mm and capable of giving load at the rate of 140 kg/sq.cm/min. testing of the concrete cubes and cylinders are tested under ctm at the age of 28 days.
compressive strength of concrete is 456 interpretation of test results of sample the test results of the sample shall be the average of the strength of three specimen simple mistakes can reduce the strength of concrete cubes so compressive strength of concrete
concrete mixtures can be designed to provide a wide range of mechanical and durability properties to meet the design requirements of a structure. the compressive strength of concrete is the most common performance attribute used by the engineer when designing structures. compressive strength is measured by breaking cylindrical concrete

the most common test for hardened concrete is the compressive strength, at a particular period of time, from the time of casting the concrete cubes. it is very important for engineers and technicians to obtain accurate results of compressive strengths of concrete. compressive strength over a period of time also indicates the extent of quality
