Dec 29, 2013 Polymer concrete was introduced in the late 1950s and became well known in the 1970s for its use in repair, thin overlays and floors, and precast components. Because of its properties like high compressive strength, fast curing, high specific strength, and resistance to chemical attacks polymer concrete has found application in very specialized domains.

There is a concrete compressive stress check that should be carried out at transfer stressing, which is based upon a factor of the concrete strength at transfer fci. This is shown in an extract from BS5400 part 4 as below Currently there is no way to specify the age of the concrete at transfer so this check will need to be carried out manually.
Feb 14, 2017 Compressive strength of high strength concrete mix is usually greater than 6,000 pounds per square inch.. High strength concrete is made by lowering the water cement WC ratio to 0.35 or lower. Often silica fume is added to prevent the formation of free calcium hydroxide crystals in the cement, which might reduce the strength at the cement aggregate bond.
Compressive strength of concrete block in Nmm2 and Kgcm2. Concrete is made of cement sand and suitable aggregate and it may be converted into precast masonry unit or concrete masonry unit or CMU such as hollow and solid normal, light and denser weight concrete block of suitable size used for load bearing and non load bearing units for house construction, retaining wall security barriers etc.

May 31, 2021 the compressive strength of foamed concrete. The trend is similar in concrete, whereby Neville 32 reported that higher cement content leads to the increase in the compressive strength of normal concrete. However, Jones 33 said that the strength increase was found to be minimal above a cement content of 500 kgm3. If the amount of cement can ...
Note that concrete structures in colder climates require a higher compressive strength to withstand freezing and thawing cycles. In normal construction settings, the maximum compressive strength you can find in concrete is about 7,500 psi. But in laboratory settings, the upper limit of concrete strength is more like 16,000 psi.
Characteristic strength of concrete is their compressive strength which can be determined by axial compression test on cubic concrete block or cylinder shape. If Compression test is carried on cubic concrete block, when tested with cube size 15cm 15cm 15cm, thats known as Cubic test and their strength is called cubic strength.
Maximum Compressive Strength. In normal concrete work, the maximum compressive strength that can possibly be obtained is generally reckoned to be about 7,500 psi for a 28-day cylinder. It would be interesting to know if there is a conceivable maximum limit using materials and techniques available.

The compressive strength of road pavements is commonly specified in concrete road and pavement specifications. This however is slightly odd in that the compressive strength is not a critical parameter for pavement performance, the flexural strength is much more important from a structural point of view.
