### The Strength of Chapter ConcreteICC

· Strength is usually the basis for acceptance or rejection of the concrete in the structure. The specifica-tions or code designate the strength (nearly always compressive) required of the concrete in the severalparts of the structure. In those cases in which strength specimens fail to reach the required value fur-ther testing of the concrete in place is usually specified. This may involve drilling cores from the struc-ture or testing with certain nondestructive instruments that measure the hardness of the concrete.Some specifications permit a small amount of noncompliance provided it is not serious and may penal-ize the contractor by deducting from the payments due for the faulty concrete. Statistical methods nowapplied to the evaluation of tests as described in Chapter 26 lend a more realistic approach to the anal-ysis of test results enabling the engineer to recognize the normal variations in strength and to evaluateindividual tests in their true perspective as they fit into the entire series of tests on the structure.Strength is necessary when computing a proposed mix for concrete as the contemplated mix propor-tions are based on the expected strength-making

· Strength can be defined as ability to resist change. One of the most valuable properties of the concrete is its strength. Strength is most important parameter that gives the picture of overall quality of concrete. Strength of concrete usually directly related to cement paste. Many factors influence the rate at which the strength of concrete increases after mixing.

### Types of Concrete Characteristics Concrete Classification

· 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 (W/C) 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.
