Effect of Cube Size on the Compressive Strength of Concrete

Effect of shape of the specimen on the compressive strength of concrete has been widely studied and different relationships have been proposed between the cube compressive strength and cylinder strength. As per Indian Standards 150mm cubes are used for determining the compressive strength of concrete. Use of I00 mm cubes has its advantages.

The effect of temperature on the compressive strength of ...

The crushing strength of concrete at temperatures up to 600°C was independent of the water/cement ratio used but was influenced by the aggregate/cement ratio. Concrete specimens loaded to produce normal design compressive stress during the period of heating showed less reduction in strength than specimens without imposed load.

Effect of aggregate type on Compressive strength of concrete

Highest compressive strength was achieved from concrete containing crushed quartzite, followed by concrete containing river gravel which indicated that aggregate type also has effect on the ...

Effect of recycled concrete aggregates on strength and ...

The use of RCA did not have a significant effect on the rate of concrete compressive strength or stiffness gain, but it did have a small effect on the strand bond strength. For the materials tested, RCA from precast concrete performed better than RCA from returned ready-mixed concrete and demolished concrete…

Effect of Recycled Aggregate on Compressive Strength of ...

11/11/2014· For m2, compressive strength is increased to 50.15 MPa, it also showed an increase in compressive strength. Compressive strength of m3 is decreased to 49.3 MPa that showed a decrease n compressive strength. So the results of test show that compressive strength does not follow a regular trend from m0 to m3.

The Effect of Aggregate Size on the Compressive Strength ...

Vilane et al. (2016) studied the effect of aggregate size on the compressive strength of concrete. The experiment had three treatments, which were the aggregate sizes (9.5 mm, 13.2 mm and 19.0 mm ...

Abstract- The paper deals with the effects of addition of various proportions of polypropylene fiber on the properties of high strength concrete m20 mixes.An experimental program was carried out to explore its effects on compressive strength under different curing condition. the main aim of the investigation program is to study the effect of ...

Effect Of Different Curing Methods On The Compressive ...

The study present the effect of different curing methods on the compressive strength of concrete using Portland cement and finally identifies the most effective curing process for normal concrete. MATERIALS AND METHODS Locally available crushed granite stones and fine aggregate (quartzite sand)were used as coarse and fine aggregate respectively.

Effect of Curing and Supplementary Cementitious …

Curing also plays an important role in achieving compressive strength of the concrete. It wa s also discussed that how curing in water and air affects the compressive strength of the concrete. The methodology included 3 different design mixes o f concrete. The tests were conducted on all the 3 different types of design mixes concrete.

Effect of Calcium Chloride on the Compressive Strength …

3/3/2015· The impact of calcium chloride admixture on the compressive strength of concrete made from these brands of cement was compared with the compressive strength of concrete without calcium chloride. Sieve analysis, natural moisture content and specific gravity tests were carried out on the aggregates used in the production of the concrete and the ...

effect of aggregate Flakiness on the Compressive strength of Concrete Cubes 29 with concrete made from quartzite aggregate tracked by river gravel and then granite aggregate. Compressive strength models were proposed as a function of age at curing. Where concrete practitioners have options, aggregate made

Effect of Usage of Admixture in Concrete

The particle size of silica fume is 100 times smaller than cement particles i.e. its fine as cigarette smoke. Its a highly effective pozzolanic material, which improves the properties of concrete such as improved compressive strength, bond strength, abrasion resistance, dense concrete that results in protection of reinforcement against corrosion.

Relation Between Compressive and Tensile Strength of ...

Compressive Strength The main measure of the structural quality of concrete is its compressive strength. This property of concrete is commonly considered in structural design. Depending on the mix (especially the water-cement ratio) and time and quality of the curing, compressive strength of concrete can be obtained up to 14,000 psi or more. Commercial production of concrete with ordinary ...
