20211022 Compressive strength is initially checked by doing mix design to make sure the grade of concrete considered in the structural design is achieved. Concrete cube testing or cylinder testing is done to check the development of the strength of the concrete. In other words, we test the concrete to check whether it has reached or developed beyond the ...

Comparative testing reveals that high strength concrete (HSC) compressive strength values are greater by 5% when measured on 100 x 200 mm specimens. Moreover, the coefficient of variation on one set of three 100 x 200 mm specimens is as small as, or smaller than that for 150 x 300 mm specimens.

Why We Test Concrete Compressive Strength after 28 Days?
After 14 days of casting concrete, concrete gains only 9% in next 14 days. So, rate of gain of strength decreases. We have no clear idea upto when the concrete gains the strength, 1 year or 2 year, but it is assumed that concrete may gain its final strength after 1 year.So, since the concrete strength is 99% at 28 days, it's almost close to its final strength
