More Details· Calculation of Compressive Strength of Concrete. Compressive strength of cylinders is calculated by dividing the maximum load at failure by average cross sectional area and express the results to nearest 0.1 MPa [10 Psi]. Cross sectional area of cylinder can be calculated by measuring the diameter of cylinder on both sides.

More Details· Concrete strength is highly variable and can change with many factors, including the size and shape and condition of the cylinder, the way it was batched and mixed and transported from the concrete plant to the job site, the way it was molded in the field, and the temperature and moisture conditions during the curing process.

More DetailsIt is also observed that the concrete compressive strength of the cylinder specimens increases with the increasing curing days. According to ACI, a concrete is considered structural lightweight aggregate concrete when made with lightweight aggregates conforming to ASTM C 330 and has a compressive strength in excess of 2,500 psi (17.25 MPa) at ...
