The maximum water/cement ratios listed for Concrete Class B and T are for design purposes only. 3 Deck Overlays. 4 Maximum 84 day Compressive Strength for Flowable Fill, Excavatable shall not exceed 200 psi (1.4 Mpa). 5 These are recommended values that may be used as a starting point for a mix design that
As per BS 8500-2 British/European standards the grade of concrete is denoted as C10, C15, C20, C25, etc., ‘C’ which means ‘Concrete Strength class’ and the number behind C refers to characteristic Compressive strength of Concrete in N/mm2 @ 28 days when tested with the 15 cm dia. & 30 cm height cylinder in a direct compression test
Grade of concrete is defined as the minimum strength the concrete must posses after 28 days of construction with proper quality control. Grade of concrete is denoted by prefixing M to the desired strength in MPa. For example, for a grade of concrete with 20 MPa strength, it will be denoted by M20, where M stands for Mix
Class AAA is used for bridge decks and is required to have a compressive strength of 4,000 psi at 28 days (i.e., one square inch of concrete supports a load of 4,000 pounds); class AA is used for paving and has a required minimum strength of 3,500 psi at 28 days
coarse aggregate. In addition to the compressive strength requirements in Table 601-1 and unless stated otherwise on the plans, Class E concrete shall achieve a field compressive strength of 2500 psi within 12 hours. Laboratory trial mix for Class E concrete must produce an average 28 day flexural strength of at least 650 psi
with a compressive strength less than 4,500 psi. Proposed repairs require Deputy Chief Engineer, Structures approval. 2. To evaluate the Resistivity of the concrete, the Department will cast cylinders at the same frequency and from the same sample(s) of concrete used to cast compressive strength specimens, with a minimum of one (1) set per
+ 1200 psi, then Minimum Compressive Strength, f’ c = 3300 psi or round up to f’ c = 3500 psi. If I was an engineer responsible for durable concrete for my project, I would specify: Minimum 28-day Compressive Strength, f’c = 3500 psi o This keeps mix designs submitted to moderate cement content, typically 3500 psi concrete has 564 lbs of
The strength of concrete is measure in terms of pounds per square inch (or PSI). PSI is a measure of compressive strength, or the ability of the material to carry loads and handle compression. 1.) 2500-3000 PSI. Most concrete has a PSI rating of 2500 to 3000. This type of concrete can be used for sidewalks and residential driveways
The over-design value determined may be applied to other concrete classes within 1,000 psi. of the specified strength used for the initial determination. Thus, if we are trying to determine the over-design for a Class “C” concrete, with a minimum 28-day compressive strength of 3600 psi, the over-design determined for the Class “C” can also
1, meet the strength grade of concrete design. 2, meet the concrete peaceability. 3, meet the durability of the use of concrete. 4, meet the above conditions to save cement and reduce the cost of concrete. The strength of concrete is divided into twelve grades, such as C7.5, C10, C15, C20, C25, C30, C35, C40, C45, C50, C55, C60 and so on
The classes of concrete shown in Table 601-1 shall be used when specified in the Contract.

Jan 01, 1992 Jan 01, 1992 The characteristic compressive strength f ck is the first value in the concrete class designation, e.g. 30 MPa for C30/37 concrete. The value corresponds to the characteristic (5% fractile) cylinder strength according to EN 206-1. The strength classes of EN1992-1-1 are based on the characteristic strength classes determined at 28 days
plain concrete construction [16]. Concrete grade/strength class C20/25 with a minimum cylinder strength of 20MPa and a minimum cube strength 25MPa is the minimum concrete grade/strength class recommended for the construction of the reinforced load-bearing building structural members such as columns, beams and slabs in mild exposure condition
