Apr 03, 2014 Compressive strength of concrete Out of many test applied to the concrete, this is the utmost important which gives an idea about all the characteristics of concrete.By this single test one judge that whether Concreting has been done properly or not. For cube test two types of specimens either cubes of 15 cm X 15 cm X 15 cm or 10cm X 10 cm x 10 cm depending upon the size of
As per IS 2185 Part I - 1979, the min. average of 8 samples compressive strength is 5 MPa, with individual value not lesser than 4 MPa , Table 2 page 12 for type D5.0. As per IS 2185 Part II - 1983, Light Wt. the min. average of 8 s...
hollow concrete blocks, and to the load carrying capacity of the hollow concrete block individually and when used in the masonry work. There different columns of size of cross sectional area 400 x 400 mm and 1.8 meter height were also tested in the compression testing machine. All the three columns were constructed by joining the blocks with
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 The individual variation should not be more than 15 of the average. If more, the test results of the sample are invalid
concrete is accepted. In all the cases, the 28-days compressive strength shall alone be the criterion for acceptance or rejection of the concrete. In order to get a relatively quicker idea of the quality of concrete, optional test for 7 days compressive strength of concrete be carried out.
4.2 This test method provides a means of evaluating compressive strength characteristics of in-place masonry construction through testing of prisms obtained from that construction when sampled in accordance with Practice C1532C1532M.Decisions made in preparing such field-removed prisms for testing, determining the net area, and interpreting the results of compression tests require ...
EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS The compressive strength tests of the concrete specimens were evaluated using a closed-loop servo controlled compression-testing machine. A linear voltage displacement transducer LVDT of 5 mm linear measuring length and 0.09 of accuracy was used to control the test, at a displacement rate of 0.12 mmmin cylindrical specimens or 0.36 mmmin cubic
Based on the results it is observed that compressive strength of concrete masonry unit cured for 7 days and tested in horizontal position is recorded as 720 psi minimum for 70 replacement and 1385 psi maximum for 40 replacement.

Standard Test Methods for Compressive Strength of Masonry Prisms 1. Scope 1.1 These test methods cover two compression tests of masonry prisms 1.1.1 Method AFor determining comparative data on the compressive strength of masonry built in the laboratory with either different masonry units or mortar types, or both.
This paper covers, briefly, the purpose of compressive strength of concrete test cubes, parameters, which can affect the compression strength of concrete, also some basic and advanced apparatus required for the test and the precautions for the test. It also discusses different types of
CONCLUSION The observed Zero slump shape-b. is the indication of very low water-cement ratio and it is occurring because of dry mix. The compressive strength of concrete test cube, cylinder and lintel has been determined in the 7th day after making the test. For the average compressive strength of 7th day concrete test cube is 4.63 MPa.
concrete has a minimum 28-day compressive strength of 2500 psi 17 MPa, an equilibrium density between 70 and 120 lbft 1120 and 1920 kgm , and consists entirely of lightweight aggregate or a combination of lightweight and normal-density aggregate.
In accordance with EN 77142011A12015 and EN 77212011A12015, compressive strength of AAC can be determined by two alternative test methods by drying at temperature not higher than 50 C with moisture content 6 2, or by drying at temperature 70 C
