Prediction of compressive strength of concrete from early

CONCRETE AND COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH Concrete is inert mass which grows from a cementing medium Concrete is a product of two major components one is the cement paste and another is the inert mass In order to form the cementing medium cement would mix with water Coarse aggregates and fine aggregates are the part of inert mass


Cement Cement The major cements composition and properties Portland cement is made up of four main compounds tricalcium silicate 3CaO · SiO2 dicalcium silicate 2CaO · SiO2 tricalcium aluminate 3CaO · Al2O3 and a tetra calcium aluminoferrite 4CaO · Al2O3Fe2O3 In an abbreviated notation differing from the normal atomic symbols these compounds are designated as C3S C2S

How to Choose Concrete for a Project 7 Steps with Pictures

 · Learn about the basic design mixes used in concrete production There are many different types strengths and compositions of concrete each with characteristics that make them perform better for different applications Here are a few examples Strength is usually determined by compression testing and is expressed in Pounds per Square Inch PSI

Water to Cement Ratio Relation Graph Engineering Intro

 · From the graph one can see it forms a hyperbola shape As water to cement ratio is increasing its compressive strength is gradually lacking behind Water to Cement Ratio Formulas Duff Abrams in 1919 presented an equation that relates strength of concrete with water to cement ratio Where W c is the water to cement ratio in the concrete mix

Effect of Zeolite Inclusion on Some Properties of Concrete

partial replacement in concrete and should lead to global sustainable development and lowest possible environmental impact and energy saving 1 Many researchers showed that a part replacement of cement by mineral admixtures has improved the performance of concrete in strength


Based on experimental results mathematical models were elaborated to predict the development of compressive strength of concrete with fly ash replacement percentages up to 30 Strength of concrete with dif ferent types of cement CEM I 42 5 CEM I 32 5 CEM III 32 5 after 2 28 90 180 days of curing have been

Choosing Different Rebar Sizes for Your Project

 · Reinforcing bar is used to add tensile strength to concrete The compressive strength of concrete is ten times the tensile strength That means it takes ten times the weight or force to crush concrete than it does to pull it apart In reality concrete is not pulled apart by natural forces Rather pressure torques and twists concrete


Special Class Concrete High strength 65 MPa 80 MPa 100 MPa Commonly used for projects requiring high strength concrete with options in design slump between 140 and 200 mm 65 MPa concrete is available in 10 mm 14 mm and 20 mm aggregate sizes while 80 and 100 MPa are only available in 10 mm and 14 mm aggregate size

Curing Concrete – Normal Hot and Cold Weather

Curing Concrete – Normal Hot and Cold Weather Introduction Portland cement consists of several complex chemical compounds see composition of cement In the preparation of concrete the cement acts as a glue which bonds together the aggregates to achieve the final castproduct


C3S contributes most t the strength development during the first four weeks C2S influences the gain in strength from 4 weeks onwards At the age of about one year the two compounds contribute approximately equally to ultimate strength C3A contributes to the strength of the cement paste at one to three days and

Table 1 Setting Time of Concrete at Various Temperature

Prediction of Compressive Strength

Prediction of Compressive Strength In terms of performance variables one important property is the compressive strength Previously Osbaeck and Johansen 58 developed a mathematical model relating cement particle size distribution to strength development Assuming that the depth of the hydrated layer is independent of particle diameter which also is assumed tacitly in the NIST cement


The concrete strength is affected by the other aggregate characteristics as well size shape surface texture grading particle size distribution and mineralogy they influence concrete strength in varying degrees Usually the effect of aggregate characteristics on concrete strength is related to a change of water cement ratio
